Star Trek: The Q Continuum by Greg Cox is an excellent choice of literature for fans of science fiction novels. In the story, the Starship Enterprise, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, has undertaken a mission to pierce the galactic barrier, a powerful wall of energy that prevents any corporeal life form from exiting the galaxy. With new technology conceived by Lem Faal, an accomplished physicist, Picard hopes to open up a vast new frontier for exploration. However, what he and his crew did not expect was that their experiment would lead to a disaster of epic proportions. In efforts to intervene in their plans, Q, a god-like extragalactic being, abducts Picard and takes him on a journey that will justify aborting their mission at all costs, even if it means destroying the ship! Nevertheless, 0, a malevolent being bent on destroying the galaxy, succeeds in commandeering the Enterprise. In the end, 0 may prove to be an adversary that neither Q nor Picard will be able to stop! This novel is of an outstanding quality, with an imaginative story line and a realistic look into the future of mankind. The plot of the novel is very engrossing and it causes readers to feel like they are living in an era of sleek starships and widespread exploration. The book?s appeal to the imagination makes it an invaluable piece of any science fiction fan?s book collection. However, those who are not familiar with the classic Star Trek series and its many successors may not fully grasp some occurrences in the plot, especially the roles of the characters in the story. Even some avid young Star Trek enthusiasts may become mislead due to the author?s frequent use of metaphorical phrases and figurative dialogue. Overall, the novel appeals to science fiction aficionados deviating in age from their late teens to adulthood. It is unlikely that those who are not usually interested in genres such as science fiction and fantasy will thoroughly enjoy this book. In any event, readers who enjoy becoming wrapped up in an imaginative story line will instantly declare The Q Continuum a classic piece of literature. I would definitely recommend this book to any devoted science fiction fan because of its imaginative plot and fresh approach to the future of mankind. Although the novel only appeals to a selective audience, those who are attracted to it will find themselves enthralled by its tale. In the end, The Q Continuum provides an intricate appraisal of the future of mankind, with enough action to leave even the omnipotent speechless.
