The Maelstrom, a metaphysical whirlpool of apocalyptic proportions, is pulling all of reality into its maw, devouring the totality of time and space while bringing together people and places from throughout the universe. The Q Continuum pronounces that the end of everything has come, but Q refuses to meekly accept the complete termination of all he has known. Defying the judgment of the Continuum, he sets out to derail doomsday at whatever the cost. Q is joined in his quest by his young son, little q, as well as by two displaced Starfleet officers. Snatched from the U.S.S. Enterprise by the inexorable pull of the Maelstrom, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Commander Data have no choice but to accompany Q on a hazardous journey into the very heart of the vortex, where they will encounter wonders and dangers enough to render Q himself speechless. Almost.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TheTick | 1/24/2014

    " I enjoyed the plot well enough, but the problem with a book with a first-person perspective is you have to enjoy the person's thoughts. Q is one of my favorite characters, but de Lancie has him going off on long tangents and unrelated stories, and eventually you just want him to get to the point. Still, I enjoyed it despite it's faults. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 rivka | 1/22/2014

    " Having just (August 2007) reread it for the first time in quite a few years, I can say that it really was as good as I remembered . . . and considerably more surreal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 1/8/2014

    " Quite a witty romp through Trekdom. Much lighter fare than some of the more recent novels, but at the same time laced with snarky but deep philosophy. Fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 1/8/2014

    " Since this is de Lancie, perhaps it is not suprising that it captures the voice of Q so well. Star Trek novels are a not-so-secret pleasure of mine and this one escaped me for some time. Really loved the mini-homage to the Princess Bride. But it makes me want to go back and catch those episodes of Voyager I don't remember very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Bean | 1/7/2014

    " Told from Q's point of view, this was quite amusing. I particularly enjoyed the Princess Bride references. :D "

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

    " Q is up to his neck in well a lot of unknown which I find very interesting for him the know it all of everything not done the book yet but I will let you know what I think in the end "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lady Natasha | 1/3/2014

    " I know I read this....but I can't remember what I thought about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paxton Holley | 12/12/2013

    " World and dimension spanning story of the rise of Q. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dustin | 12/9/2013

    " An interesting look at the end of the universe from the point of view of one of it's most powerful inhabitants. I think the book captures the character of Q in a way that most other novels that I've read that use the character fail to do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/1/2013

    " This one was okay, but not great. Not as good as the stories by Peter David. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/30/2013

    " Who better to write a book about Q than the man behind the character!?! This is one of my most favorite books!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bradley | 11/19/2013

    " Ehh.. I wanted good things from this book.. but it seemed hurried and was written mostly in the first person. I like first person, but the pacing is totally offrhythm. It was so-so, but I would not recommend it personally. =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 10/31/2013

    " If you loved Q in Star Trek the Next Generation don't miss this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Athena Braun | 10/20/2013

    " I love the Charater Q and I have read Q in law which was so funny. This book though was so boring that I have decided to just give up on it! I wish it would have been better.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Yelverton | 9/5/2013

    " Such a fun and enigmatic book about one of the greatest scamps in the "Star Trek" universe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jody Mena | 7/30/2013

    " I just adore Q, so this book was simply irresistable to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvette | 4/10/2013

    " I picked this up for a dime at a garage sale and read it cover to cover on a trip from philadelphia to san diego. Crazy surreal. This is a weird weird book. I don't know, I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clint Smith | 9/29/2012

    " A fun book. Didn't really delve as much into the mindset of Q as I thought it might based on the description, but amusing nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 9/22/2012

    " Lots of fun when Q is around! Q is experiencing a personal tradgedy; the end of the universe. What else can I say? My favorite part though, had to be when DATA yelled at everyone to shut up... but you'll have to read this for yourself to see why that was even worth mentioning! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 8/3/2012

    " Lots of fun, but really, considering it was *Q* off on an adventure with Picard and Data, cowritten by Peter David and John de Lancie--well, it wasn't nearly as awesome as I'd hoped it would be. Still, definitely worth a look if you like that sort of thing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 7/10/2012

    " This is bad. Rambling and out-of-character, Q comes across like a man who grew up in a western civilization on earth during the late 20th Century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikael Kuoppala | 6/2/2012

    " An absolutely brilliant, puzzling and surreal novel. It's like a Trek version "The Naked Lunch", with Q as the protagonist. Wild... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 10/25/2011

    " Not very good. Peter David is a brilliant writer, and he helped co-write this with John de Lancie. I was expecting better and was disappointed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 8/6/2011

    " I thought this book was crap. And I'm a Star Trek nerd. "
