Star Trek: Stargazer: Maker
by Michael Jan Friedman
Publisher: Pocket Books
Review by Kathryn Ramage
Maker is the latest book in the Stargazer series by Michael Jan Friedman, which recounts the adventures of a younger Captain Jean-Luc Picard in command of his first starship. In particular, this book refers to events in one earlier novel -- The Valiant -- which I haven't read, but from the backstory given here and characters' conversations, I gather that:
A.) People from beyond the barrier at the rim of the galaxy, descendants of the crew of another starship who were transformed into super-powerful psychic, silver-eyed beings (a la Gary Mitchell in the Original Series episode Where No Man Has Gone Before) fought a war with another race called the Nuyyad from outside the galaxy and enlisted Picard's help.
B.) Picard got laid. One might be inclined to say "great for him!", except that the woman he was involved with lied and betrayed him in the earlier book, so that the good captain has some difficulty trusting her when she shows up again and asks for his assistance in this novel. [more]

Star Trek: A Time to Heal - Book 8
By: David Mack
Published by: Pocket Books
Available as a downloadable eBook
Review by Kathy LaFollett
Book 8 by David Mack offers the political mystery of a Tom Clancy work that sets this particular edition apart from the first 7 books. It also comes painfully close to today's headlines in a blatant (to me) yet whispered nod and wink.
The reader enters again the violent story of Tezwa and it's hidden secrets left over from the Dominion War. A new government has been put in place on the planet and all seems ready to proceed to peace.
If it weren't for those pesky WMD that the Federation had installed. [more]
