Star Trek: TNG — The Last Stand

{4.5/5} “We’ve been seeing the Krann only as wanderers, as rootless transients. We’ve been thinking that Krann society must have been affected in any number of bad ways by their ceaseless traveling. We forgot that the Krann live here. They’re used to being transients — except that they don’t think of themselves as that.”

Star Trek: TNG — The Last Stand by Brad Ferguson, published in 1995

The Enterprise finds a planet where the ruins are from 6000 years ago, and following a warp signal they find the people from that planet. The Lethanta don’t have warp drive but they spot the Enterprise so Captain Picard decides on a careful visit. He is disturbed to find that the planet is ready for war.

This story is about how misunderstandings and grudges can last for generations, and how the truth can cut through untruths.

Riker, Troi, Data, and Ro get to go on the away teams.

I’ve read 3 books by Ferguson. I read his other 2 Star Trek books many years ago.
