In all of his travels Captain Jean-Luc Picard has never faced an opponent more powerful than Q, a being from another continuum that Picard encountered on his very first mission as Captain of the "Starship Enterprise" TM. In the years since, Q has returned again and again to harass Picard and his crew. Sometimes dangerous, sometimes merely obnoxious, Q has always been mysterious and seemingly all-powerful. But this time, when Q appears, he comes to Picard for help. Apparently another member of the Q continuum has tapped into an awesome power source that makes this being more powerful than the combined might of the entire Q continuum. This renegade Q is named Trelane, also known as the Squire of Gothos, who Captain Kirk and his crew first encountered over one hundred years ago.

And this time the stakes are not just Picard's ship, or the galaxy, or even the universe, this time the stakes are all of creation.

Title had me at Q, but the twists in the book gave me a headache. Preferred Q-in-Law.
I've never really been a Star Trek fan (I know, that's outright blasphemy coming from a self-proclaimed geek like myself), but since I am a Peter David fan, I gave this book a try, and wound up enjoying it far more than I thought I would! Peter David weaves a complex tale involving alternate realit...
