  1. I couldn’t believe when I started to read this novel. It was just the same storyline than in “Reunion”( see review here ) from the book line of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I knew that it was the same author but I was expecting some kind of different story but when I started to read the book, it was once again on a reunion of a former crew, this time from the U.S.S.
