    1 thought on “Q-Strike

    1. I came away from this trilogy feeling that Greg Cox really gets what Trek is all about His ability to weave disparate parts of continuity together into a cohesive whole really makes this story enjoyable to read.If I had one complaint, it s that this trilogy should probably have been two books rather than three I felt like each volume was a little too short to warrant having its own book While there isn t much I would have considered cutting from the story, I still feel like the story could have [...]

    2. This whole trilogy has promise, but it s never realized Cox goes on too long too often, giving us glimpses of Q s origin with his pseudo mentor 0 Ultimately, the books suffered from poor editing and relied too much on nods to other occurrences in the ST universe It s fine to give the reader comfortable touch points to other ST books and series, but most references were pedestrian and it seemed like the author was simply trying to show he knew a lot about the ST canon.It s fluffy reading and it s [...]

    3. All done A decent end to the trilogy Very much like a Star Trek episode in book form Tons of references to the Trek universe in general which is great for geeking out to but it did sometimes feel a little overdone as it made for strange dialogue at times Enjoyed the Q story line very much though the entirety of the second book and much of the first was dedicated to setting up the bad guy, in parts I just wanted it to get on with it These things didn t get in the way of what was an entertaining r [...]

    4. The third book in the Q Continuum saga, this volume completes the story of the Enterprise being caught in the middle of a eons old dispute between two Omnipotent forces in the Q Continuum of 0.The conclusion to this story actually came around a little quickly for my liking, although I enjoyed all of the books immensely.If you re a fan of Star Trek, parallel dimensions, omnipotent entities or time travel shenanigans, this trilogy is for you Very enjoyable

    5. The final book of the trilogy and probably the most stretched one The plot has a big potential but it is stretched too thin, slowing down the dynamics of the story and shamefully throwing away all the previous parts have developed Huge disappointment

    6. The final part of the Q Continuum trilogy is sufficient evidence that this series of books would have been better served condensed into two.0 s reappearance in our galaxy creates mayhem, as Picard and Q must team up with the Calamarain to put a stop to his plans for galaxy wide armageddon.Once 0 was freed from the galactic barrier, the plot becomes altogether rather routine The reintroduction of the Calamarain was no surprised, although I did enjoy Picard s efforts at diplomacy with the rather u [...]

    7. Q Strike resides on a new Enterprise E, and takes place a couple of months after the movie, First Contact, since that is when the new ship is introduced The story focuses on multiple storylines 1 Q showing Picard bits and pieces of Q s own past with 0, 2 Lem Faal and his new powers, 3 0 s pursuit of Q, and 4 Picard and the Calamarains.The third and final book in this trilogy moves along quite quickly and I found it a pleasure to read In fact, I found it quite hard to put down Finally, the great [...]

    8. Better than the second book, not quite as good as the first book in the series The third and final book concludes the 0 Q feud, with the Enterprise right in the middle I did enjoy the author s take on the dinosaur extinction, as well as the link between this book and the TOS movie, The Final Frontier I did feel that it did wrap up too quickly and the filler from the second book could have been removed and the conclusion to the third book could have been drawn out a little 3.75 5

    9. The stunning conclusion I m not sure if I mentioned it in the review of the first one, so I ll just take the opportunity to say it here Barclay is in this Barclay is one of my faves, next to Ensign Ro, Lwaxana Troi, and of course Q himself.This trilogy was a fun read we got to see a different side of Q and it ended with Picard relating to understanding Q a bit better Now if only I can find a book about Guinan s backstory.

    10. I d give this 2.5 stars This should have been a two book series, would have been much better and would have averaged 4 stars Drawn out over 3 books this was a boring read overall First book was decent, 2nd book likewise, by the third the premise is dull and the characters boring The Q story takes a back seat to what Rikers team is up to throughout the series and I found myself forwarding to these bits.

    11. Finally decided to read this trilogy, and now I really wish it were an episode in the TNG series I enjoyed the pace of the first book the most The second felt like it had slow pace and a lot of build up, and the third book brought it all together pretty quickly A nice read and added bonus storyline for any TNG fans Loved getting to know about who Q is Still, there were times the story just dragged a bit for some reason.

    12. Eh again, I think the trilogy could have been collapsed by a book and it would have paced better It was still enjoyable, but the lackluster ending I don t know what I expected it s a perfectly fine episode ending I guess I m just used to reading things with impact costs this a star.

    13. 3rd Q Book I d read in a month and I was done w him by then I tend to be a procrastinator like all humans So, with some books, not all I wish it were w all I am way overaggressieve in my pacing Believe it or not you remember, understand and retain much of any book or suject it s taken in at a fast pace The pace must be

    14. The 3rd book in this series Picard remains missing, Q and O have a battle, Lem Faal who is taken over by O kidnaps baby q and does experiments on him, The calamarians come to a truce with Q and help him in his battle against 0 Very entertaining Q finally gets knocked down a peg or two This is worth the read

    15. What a great conclusion For my introduction to the written Star Trek world, I am quite pleased The treat, and the reward, is learning about Q and the Continuum The adventure, suspense and layers prove wonderful I had to place this book on a hold at the library Worth the wait I will definitely have to read of these in the future Great, fast, and fun.

    16. A fun read with some minor annoyances pointed out by others that only marginally detract from this thoroughly enjoyable story Particularly in the third book, the writing quality and editing doesn t seem up to the same level as the first two, ranging from simple typos to downright awkward sentence structure at times The trilogy still beats any of the ST movies, hands down

    17. An adequate ending to this trilogy Ties all the strings together nicely and utilizes all the wonderful characters well.

    18. I love Greg Cox s trek books because he write stories about secondary character from the francise instead of just writing yet another adventure of the USS enterprise.

    19. Greg Cox penned a winner with this trilogy, incorporating so much of the universe as only he can.

    20. A good finale to what should be read as one book Picard finally finds out the secret behind the barrier An entertaining read.
