Two powerful rival families of the spacefaring merchant race called the Tizarin are to be joined through marriage, and the U.S.S. Enterprise is chosen as the site for the wedding. Captain Picard is pleased by the happy duty, but his pleasure is cut short by the arrival of the Federation delegate from Betazed, Lwaxana Troi, the mother of ship's counsellor, Deanna Troi.

Despite Lwaxana Troi's romantic overtures toward the captain, the celebration seems to go smoothly until the situation is further complicated by the arrival of the notorious and all powerful being called Q, who has come to examine and challenge the human concept of love. The festivities are thrown into turmoil, the powerful Tizarin families are on the verge of war, and Lwaxana Troi is determined to teach Q a lesson in love that he will never forget.

    " The most humourous ST:TNG book I've ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn Wooley | 1/30/2014

    " Totally awesome! I have never read a more hilarious Star Trek book! It's even good for Wesley fans ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paxton Holley | 1/24/2014

    " Good lighthearted Star Trek fun. Peter David really knows how to write these light, funny tales. Especially involving Q. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 1/20/2014

    " This was a fun book, but not as much as some of Peter David's other 'Q' books, such as I, Q. However, there were 12 pages near the end that made the entire book worthwhile and reminds everyone just how much butt Lwaxana Troi kicks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/5/2014

    " Very enjoyable and funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 12/13/2013

    " Best Star Trek Book EVER! My copy is literally falling apart. Lwaxana/Q = OTP! Hitchhiker's Guide may tell you the *answer* to life, the universe, and everything, but a good geek knows this book reveals the meaning of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorebound | 11/29/2013

    " I found this far funnier than I had any right to. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A | 11/19/2013

    " Lwaxana Troi and Q meet, two of the great characters on star trek. Hilarity ensues. In the audio book, the actors that play Q and Lwaxana actually narrate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 11/19/2013

    " Peter David is my favorite Star Trek writer and this entry was hilarious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rich Meyer | 11/19/2013

    " Excellent Peter David novel in the TNG series. Q gets involved in marital relations between some warring races, and with Deanna Troi's mother. Good characterization and a good bit of fun ... this is NOT a dark tale like "Encounter at Farpoint". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karlen | 7/29/2013

    " Perfect for a Star Trek geek. Quick, easy - just like a TV episode. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dameon Huber | 7/6/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 6/13/2013

    " This would have made a great episode of the TV show. Loved all the scenes between Luxanna and Q. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Finnella Flanagan | 5/16/2013

    " This was hilarious. When I loaned it to a friend who wasn't a big Trek fan, she complained because she laughed so hard she was worried her stitches were going to break. One of my favorite Next Generation books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 1/19/2013

    " What a great book. I love any Star Trek book that has Q in it, but this one was even better. Q vs. Lwaxana Troi! It starts out with action and doesn't let up. I would recommend this to any sci-fi reader bus especially to Star Trek readers everywhere. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 11/20/2011

    " Only Q book I didn't like that much. Mostly because Lwaxana is the most irritating character next to Wesley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paraskevi | 5/18/2011
