    1. The Federation has a dark side it is called Section 31 There is a secret in the charter a secret organization outside the rule of law This agency is first brought to light in Star Trek Deep Space Nine, and then referred to by Star Trek Enterprise The novel Rogue by Andy Mangels and Michael A Martin allows the world of The Next Generation to butt heads against it Set in a flashback before the borg invasion but after the destruction of the Enterprise D when the Enterprise E is set to help find out [...]

    2. This was the first Star Trek book to have a homosexual character I have no problem with that But I was highly disappointed that the plot was very similar to the TOS Section 31 novel, Section 31 Cloak Because of that, I can t give this book a good rating So, if you loved this book, you will probably enjoy Cloak.

    3. This book tied together some episodes of Deep Space Nine, a bunch of published Star Trek books, some plot points from First Contact as well as at least five other Next Generation episodes I found it enjoyable enough, but I think I would have preferred slightly insight into what the enemies were doing There were some rather abrupt character developments that I would have preferred to have been telegraphed or given some warning.

    4. I was an ok book Full of espionage Section 31 up to no good planting agents in key areas The biggest surprise was making HAWK a homosexual when in the movie there is no indication.

    5. I was looking forward to this one, expecting a tale of intrigue and spy games That doesn t happen at all, unfortunately Rogue is a plodding book in which it feels like barely anything happens Bizarrely told mostly in flashback, it tells the story of the Enterprise E crew as they petition a strategically valuable planet for Federation membership alongside the Romulans wanting the same for their own Empire.It doesn t get much exciting than that, right In the background, a couple of agents for the [...]

    6. Rouge was a good book that I felt suffered from being something that Star Trek is not good at Morally ambiguous.The story revolves around the Geminus Gulf, an expanse of nearly 60 light years across This area is almost devoid of anything noteworthy, a virtual desert in space on the edges of the United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Empire The only oasis, the planet Chiaros IV Treaties between the two great powers have declared that neither side may claim this area until invited to do so b [...]

    7. This was a good book I really liked it Section 31 is a secret shadow government functioning within the Federation that sees itself as above the law They justify their existence by claiming that they have the anonymity to take the morally grey courses of action that normal officers in Starfleet cannot due to their vaulted ideals This is the 2nd in a series of 4 books pitting Section 31 a plot device from the series Deep Space 9 against other familiar Star Trek casts In this book it s Captain Pica [...]

    8. Q What s brown and lies at the bottom of the Starship Enterprise s toilet.A The Captain s log My apologies for that beginning Very stylish cover Hopefully I age as well as Patrick Stewart and still make women weak at the knees when I m 70 years old The back cover done a good job in making me pick this book in a veritable starship filling, array of novels that are available in the Star Trek The Next Generation series The title is just a tad too long though.This was the kind of TNG novel that coul [...]

    9. While the twists and turns are great, at the end of the day, it s cliched.This is how it always goes Senior secret agent finds a nice, impressionable junior officer for a mission It s a recruitment drive and or dangerous mission The junior officer is all fired up.The mission turns out south as expected but the recruit saves the day and yet sees just how amoral the senior spy and his agency are when they don t care who got hurt So they go Archer Kirk Sisko Picard their original boss or mentor and [...]

    10. While the plot was nothing earth shattering the Federation and the Romulans vie for an alliance with a world of apparently little strategic importance or is it by taking opposite sides in that planet s revolution However, we get another look at Section 31, a super secret Intelligence group that works within Starfleet but outside Starfleet s rules and regulations I also enjoyed Data s internal battle with a Romulan AI, and some excellent character development with Lt Sean Hawk of Star Trek First [...]

    11. Accidental discovery with finding this bookOne night I was searching for entries for obscure Star Trek characters I saw that this book referenced Lt Hawk and I was intrigued I have to say that I really enjoyed the story overall I also really enjoyed the realistic and balanced way a Star Trek novel handled a gay officer It was very tastefully done and was appropriate within the confines of the main story It s very difficult to find healthy examples of LGBT characters in main stream books especial [...]

    12. I ve found that I can count on authors Andy Mangels and Michael A Martin to deliver outstanding Star Trek tales and this novel is no exception Picard is reunited with some old friends when the Enterprise is caught in the middle of a civil war The Romulans are involved, but with friends in Section 31, the Federation s covert operations division, who needs enemies Published in paperback by Pocket Books.

    13. It started out slow, but got very interesting in time I love Keru and Hawk, so any book with them in it pulls at my heart strings Near the end of the book, I realized Hawk was a Mary Sue character I think the action made up for it, though Not the best Star Trek book I ve ever read, but I would still recommend it.

    14. An interesting look at Section 31, the secret intelligence branch of the Federation Though this book was set in The Next Generation series, it focused on a minor character that we knew from the first chapter dies A good story and I m a TNG nerd but I was hoping for of my beloved characters not so much other ones.

    15. Set after the borg movie, Picard is thinking about all the good people that were lost Particularly of one officer, Hawk This brings us to a flashback about an incident with the Romulans and Section 31 A decent story and good characterisation It s nice to see the aftermath of the borg incident and how it affects the crew A good read.

    16. Probably one of the best Star Trek books I ve ever read It was gripping to say the least and the author really had a feel for the characters and their interactions There wasn t a time when I was thinking, Geordi would never say that or something to that effect Not to mention a gay character on the bridge and one that continues onto the other books as a supporting character.

    17. As a Star Trek nerd, this was a decent story, some background on an interesting part of Federation history and pretty good character development I enjoyed myself and was able to read it very quickly.

    18. It tries to be a novel demonstrating the dark hearted power of Section 31, but it doesn t come close to sister series DS9 s effortless command of the ultimate counter intelligence force A novel that is nowhere near as radical as it thinks it is

    19. Not my favorite of the Section 31 books, but it was by no means bad.

    20. Nice to see where some of the Section 31 tendrils reach.

    21. This was a great novel for me It was the first time a gay charachter had ever been featured in a Star Trek novel.

    22. somehow i had expected that the book would be a bit about section 31, and a bit less about the shiny picard knight saving the day again.

    23. Great book so far It takes up where the movie First Contact left off.

    25. No I didn t really like the premise, and I thought the recruitment subplot was kind of weak I definitely had a hard time finishing this one.
