The second episode in the Stargazer saga With all the primary set up out of way in book one, book two just proceeds with an enjoyable, compelling, and humorous story.
By the end of the book, you'll be cheering your favourite members of the crew Solid, enjoyable adventure. Sep 06, Bookfairy rated it liked it Shelves: sci-fi , kindle. I enjoyed some aspects of this book, but it didn't give me the same feel of Star Trek. I anticipated the themes to be familiar, but I was a little disappointed.
The story was interesting with some twists, so I liked that part. Nov 29, D. I want to complain about the writing. But there's no doubt that this is readable and compelling, and as far as writing goes, that's enough. On a less serious note: view spoiler [ 1 Could Vigo and Pug really be so ignorant of the Gnalish that until they arrived on the home world they had no idea that Simenon was on the short side?
Stargazer Book Two: Progenitor
Every single Stargazer novel so far has had a defector. I'm starting to think the author has serious trust issues. The message though is that the future is going to as problematic as the present, and that's not the Star Trek I love. These novels so far have a formula. It goes like this: A wants B but needs C. D occurs and A realizes C. Just one example: Wu wants to be first officer on the Crazy Horse, but needs to mentor the staff on the Stargazer.
The incident with the Belladonna occurs, and she realizes she should stay onboard to help Jiterica and Paris realize their potential.

Picard and his senior staff aid Simenon with a personal ritual on his homeworld while Commander Wu embarks on a rescue mission on the Stargazer. I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It was fast-paced and hard to put down, and I finished it in a day.
The circumstances of the senior staff's departure seemed dubious, but it was great fun to read. They can all just disappear together on a personal matter without shore leave? I was also distracted by the numerous typographical errors Victoria is someti Picard and his senior staff aid Simenon with a personal ritual on his homeworld while Commander Wu embarks on a rescue mission on the Stargazer.
I was also distracted by the numerous typographical errors Victoria is sometimes interchanged with Elizabeth, and there are some missing breaks when the viewpoint changes. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Author Michael Jan Friedman brings us the second book in the Stargazer series.

I enjoyed the variety of species that Friedman brings to us, particularly Jiterica, a low density being. We get the gist of her - she doesn't have a physical body as such, but exists inside a containment suit. There is intrigue off the ship on the part of the Admiralty, personnel changing roles and ships, and personnel who feel overwhelmed and unable to do their jobs. That actually was believable as so many people are often thrust into a role before they are ready.
However, all worked out well in this fast paced but highly predictable book ala Captain Kirk and the Enterprise.

The main distraction, which kept this from being a 4, was the plethora of typographical errors and lack of bridging between segues. Nov 28, rivka rated it it was ok Shelves: bookswaps , startrek. Where do I start? The Gnala ritual that involves fathering children -- and yet seems to involve no actual female. Even in passing. The very obvious hints about Ulelo are tiresome and heavy-handed. And the ending, where it's not even clear what happened to the two men who have the misfortune to desire the Asmunds.
Book 4 in the series features Guinan, though.
That one looks Where do I start? That one looks like it could be good. Dec 31, Dustin rated it liked it. This is a solid second entry of the series. I know the characters and I can just sit back and enjoy the ride.
And what a fun ride. It reads like a good Star Trek episode. Plenty of principle back story and by the end I started to really get to care about some charcters and relationships. Fun read over all.
