Star Trek: TNG — Shadows Have Offended

{4.5/5} “Picard laughed. It was the easiest he’d ever felt in Lwaxana’s presence. He realized with a start that he had been so involved in learning what happened that he had, just for the few moments it took her to tell the story, allowed himself to forget about Kota, the Enterprise, and the Romulan, and simpy relax.”

Star Trek: The Next Generation — Shadows Have Offended by Cassandra Rose Clarke, published in 2021

Captain Picard and the Enterprise are ferrying important guests to a ceremony on Betazed. When one of the guests can’t make it, Ambassador Lwaxana Troi asks Picard to till in — since this requires him to be off the ship for 3 days he leaves Worf in charge. Meanwhile, Commander Riker is leading an away team on Kora, a world which is about to receive a bunch of refugees.

This is the 1st novel set during the Enterprise-D era in many years. It takes place during the time Worf and Deanna are friends and thinking about dating.

Clarke knows the characters. Beverly, Deanna, and Worf have particularly nice roles.

It’s about first contact with an unusual species, and recovering some stolen artifacts.

This is the 1st book I’ve read by Clarke.
