Its not that this book was poor, it is generally well written, with a subtle social commentary on how governments oppress lower classes by distraction, and a concise plot that progresses well. Its not the nit picky things that superfans will hate. (Worf can't kill? Come on. Data can't help but smile? Impossible, be can't experience the emotion).

Its just a boring story. I finished the book because I felt I had to, fast skimming the final 1/3 of the book. The story just was not compelling to me.

I will say the author generally writes great stories. This one is not bad, it just was not compelling to this reader, but in the end that is what is most important.

I'm compelled to read the series from beginning to end - that's the only reason I finished this, book. Name choices of new characters overly complicated. Too much unnecessary & boring extrapolationn. The whole disease plot was just a writer's device to put a time limit on the primary plot & was fixed to easily. Why would the natural antibody of the MUTATED bacteria from one planet be present in the daily gruel of a planet in a different star system? And of course the doctor would be one of the lost away team that happened to eat it & realize within a week that since she had not gotten sick , the antibody must be in her food. And of course, the lost away team making contact right before the Riker pronounces the last syllable of engage - which would leave them abandoned & in danger. Really?!

Too many side stories that did not make for smooth reading character development so so... I have read much better Star Trek books

The formatting of this book into Kindle is very poor. Every page I "flipped" to has at least one typo. One page, the very last I tried to read, had 5. Missing capitalizations, 2 to 3 words connected, sometimes from different sentences. The ST franchise could certainly afford a well formatted product. This version is a waste of non-refundable money, time and a good story. Buy it in used paperback form.

While the book is easy to read (most books are, on the Kindle), for some reason, there's not a single quotation mark in the entire book. No apostrophes, no double quotes, no nothing. Makes it VERY hard to figure out when someone is speaking, or when you're reading expository text.

This is the third Trek book I've encountered with the exact same problem. I hope they get better at converting books from print to Kindle format.

Story and writing are actually pretty solid; fun TNG read. But the formatting errors are so egregious as to be a constant irritant; really, really terrible.

Whatever algorithm was used to process this book into kindle format should be sent to the big software farm upstate....

Overall, the story is good. It fells just like how an episode from the early seasons of The Next Generation would go. It is exciting, not too deep, easy to follow. But what is up with Data? Almost every time Data is introduced he is described as having some kind of emotional response: surprise, dismay, confusion, delight. Even in the second season of the show, when this was written, Data was clearly shown as being an emotionless android. Only one episode that I can recall, "The Schizoid Man," showed Data with anything close to emotion, and even then it was not genuine for Data was being possessed. So where do all of these responses come from?
And then don't even get me started with Worf. How many times have we seen Worf fight and kill enemies in battle? Even by the second season on the show we had already seen him in hand-to-hand combat with holographic monsters, possessed admirals, and even Borg. Yet somehow here we are supposed to believe that he can't kill. Come on. He is not Bruce Wayne. He is Worf. He is Klingon.
Oh, well. The author does a great job with most of his other books.

"A Call to Darkness" is Michael Jan Friedman's second Star Trek novel and first Star Trek The Next Generation novel which has lead to him being Star Trek's most prolific author altogether. This was the first of his novels that I'd read and from this very beginning I found his writing to be quite compelling and a true joy to read. If you've read any of his later novels and not read this one yet, I suggest that you go back and check this one out for you will not be disappointed in the least.
The premise:
Captain Picard and the Enterprise discover a lifeless Federation research vessel in orbit of a planet that his hidden behind a mysterious energy shield. Despite the strong and ever present objections of his first officer, Commander Riker, Captain Picard leads an away team to the abandoned vessel to search for the crew; then they disappear. Commander Riker now finds himself in the position of having to find his missing Captain and crew and at the same time a mysterious disease strikes the crew of the starship...
Of the many early Star Trek The Next Generation novels, this one stands a cut above the rest due to Michael Jan Friedman's captivating and intriguing writing style. I would definitely recommend this early STNG novel to any and all fans. {ssintrepid}
