Star Trek: TNG — The Stuff of Dreams

{4.5/5} “Frankly, I didn’t want Enterprise to be a part of this. I told Starfleet that your personal experience with the nexus might cloud your judgment. But Command felt your insight would be valuable. I have operational authority here, Picard. I’ve made my decision and Starfleet has authorized it.”

Star Trek: TNG — The Stuff of Dreams by James Swallow, published in 2013

The nexus has returned to Federation space, and Captain Picard has orders to assist the science vessel studying it. But its new trajectory will take it into the territory of the Kinshaya, one of the members of the Typhon Pact and an antagonist of the Federation. Starfleet can’t let the ribbon fall into the Kinshaya’s hands so, to Picard’s surprise, the plan is to destroy it.

This is a novella available as an ebook.

The nexus isn’t my favourite anomaly, but if you’re going to revisit the nexus in a story this is a good one. It was nice to see a different side of Soran.

I’ve read 5 books by Swallow, plus this story. I previously reviewed Star Trek: The Latter Fire.
