Star Trek: Picard: The Last Best Hope

We rated this book:


Captain Picard is thinking back to where it all went wrong. The Romulan star is going to supernova. His superiors are asking him lead a mission to help relocate the Romulan people, but that means leaving the Enterprise and taking up the rank of admiral. After a little debate, Admiral Picard begins work right away.

They solve some problems and must convince others that it’s the right thing to do since the Romulans have been their enemies for years. There is also the question of trying to help a culture that does not like them much either. Things go well for a while, but when an extreme problem near Earth comes to pass, will Starfleet do the right thing or abandon the mission completely?

I love Star Trek. I think Captain Picard is one of the best characters. I think the author did an excellent job with descriptions and characters feeling like the real Picard, Geordi, and others. The settings were beautifully written.

It took me a long time to get into this book. I’m normally a fast reader, but with long chapters and little action I really had to push myself to read more than one chapter in a setting. I also didn’t love the back-and-forth between six-plus places going in and out of different characters’ thoughts and feelings, it was too much, and I honestly had to look back to see what setting I was in and who the story was about in that section.
