Captain Kirk and the crew of the EnterpriseTM pursue a most critical mission: rescuing the brilliant scientist Zefram Cochrane from captors who want to use his skills to develop a way to conquer the galaxy. Ninety-nine years in the future, Captain Picard commands his own Enterprise crew on a similar mission, the rescue of an important and mysterious person whose safety is vital to the Federation's survival. As their missions develop, the two Enterprise's are drawn closer together until the past and future overlap, and in a very literal sense the fate of each ship depends upon the success of the other.

    " Great story for Star Trek fans. What more do you need to know? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Lindsay | 2/18/2014

    " This was a great book. Loved how even though a VAST amount of time was covered and the story jumped around, it was super easy to follow along and the flow was not interrupted at all. The story easily kept my attention through out the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie Curtis | 1/23/2014

    " I loved this book! It's the best of Star Trek, TNG, and of course, the beginning. I will admit that my lack of true science knowledge stumped me in 2 or 3 places, but I was able to pick it up quickly. I loved the tie in's of several episodes and my favorite characters. Too bad they weren't able to make this a movie :) "

    " Very cleverly ties together two timelines. The "meeting" of the captains was very well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JC | 1/6/2014

    " I like the interweaving of the three generations. This story has been a favorite of mine for some time. It's not canon, so if you're confused why Zeframe Cochrane isn't the same guy that Picard and crew met in First Contact, that's why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blue Blade68 | 1/1/2014

    " A real page turner. Amazing story. Probably the best Star Trek novel ever written "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 12/10/2013

    " My favourite Star Trek novel. This one has it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon Burke | 3/20/2011

    " It's star trek but pretty decent if you like the genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Lewter | 10/3/2010

    " My favorite Star Trek book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin De Tullio | 6/22/2008

    " One of the best Star Trek novel ever written, imo. A perfect way to bring two great captains together in an unforgettable and extraordinary story. A must read for any Star Trek fans, but for any fan of sci-fi also. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corey | 8/27/2007

    " It's a great stand alone story but it doesn't jive with the continuity setup within the universe of the movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Friend | 12/16/2006

    " My all-time favorite Trek book, hands-down. The only book I've wanted to re-read (that wasn't for teaching). Fantastic story that brings together all the science, all the characters, all the mystery, and all the fascination that makes Trek great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 9/19/2005

    " This was one of the best Star Trek books I've read in a while, really well-written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean Whelan | 10/26/2003

    " Written before First Contact, this book weaves Zefram Cochran, Classic Trek and TNG very well. Once you get into it, hard to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jody Mccall | 2/19/2003

    " The film "Star Trek Generations" should have been this book, instead of what was put up on the big screen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Don Incognito | 12/2/2002

    " Federation displays an unfortunate occasional tendency among the Star Trek novels to insert blatantly irrelevant references to the Borg in order to capture readers' attention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Agranoff | 11/16/2002

    " The best ST novel ever, so much better than the movie generations. Must read for serious Trek fans. also best villain after khan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mediaaria | 9/1/2002

    " The best Star Trek novel ever written. Enough said! Highly recommended, even if you are not a Trekkie but simply love a good sci-fi story about an all to probable vision and future of humanity... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vincent Darlage | 6/1/2001

    " I like Mark Lenard's voice, but they have to use artificial means to get his voice to differentiate between characters. It was a pretty good Star Trek story, a sequel to the original series' "Metamorphosis." "
