Star Trek TNG: The Q Continuum — Q-Space

{4.5/5} “It’s too bad, Troi thought, that the rest of the crew can’t sense Captain Picard’s passion and commitment the same way I can. Then she looked around the conference table and saw the glow of the captain’s inspiration reflected in the faces of her fellow officers… On second thought, maybe they can.

Star Trek TNG: The Q Continuum — Q-Space by Greg Cox, published in 1998

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise-E are on their way to the galactic barrier that surrounds the Milky Way. A Betazoid scientist named Lam Faal is aboard to conduct an experiment in the hopes of creating a tunnel through the barrier. Q shows up, along with his wife and son, and warns Picard not go break the barrier. Then the captain disappears and the Calamarain show up — they’ve shown themselves to be not fond of Q in the past.

In addition to the regular crew, Barclay joins the action.

After previously taking Picard on a trip to Picard’s past, Q takes him on a trip to his own past here.

If you’re a fan of Q, this is the story for you. It’s the first book in a trilogy.

This is the 10th book I’ve read by Cox. I previously reviewed the one he wrote with Kij Johnson, Star Trek: The Next Generation — Dragon’s Honor.
