5.0 out of 5 stars The Best (So Far) of the "A Time To..." Series July 18 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was truly the book that made the "A Time to..." series seem validated. Before, I was a little let down because of what happened in the previous books. If you are unfamiliar with the "A Time to..." series, it's meant to explain all the changes the audience was forced to work with during the last Next Generation movie, Star Trek: Nemesis. "Born" tells the story of the Enterprise's reputation being tarnished and Picard and crew being put through the ringer for political and personal reasons by Starfleet and the Federation. "Die" is your basic TNG story, Riker and crew remain loyal to Picard and put their careers on the line to prove his actions in "Born" were justified. "Sow" has the crew rebounding somewhat and dealing with a race of people who suffered a disaster stemming back fromt he days of Captain Archer and the crew of the NX-Enterprise. "Harvest" has the crew once more putting a lot on the line to do right and save a planet's people. "Love" is the book that sets up the events in this installment, dealing with the relationship between Cmdr. William T. Riker and his estranged father, Kyle Riker.
Perhaps one weak point of the book is that it references other books that the reader may not have read. Peter David's "Imzadi" is the basis of much of the Deanna/William Riker story line. There's a part where Deanna retells parts of "Imzadi" to Vale, trying to get her to understand the relationship she has with William Riker. Much of the material for the Kyle/Will relationship comes from the book, "Deny Thy Father," part of last year's Lost Era series.

3.0 out of 5 stars ST: TNG A Time to Hate July 13 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Star Trek: The Next Generation "A Time to Hate" written by Robert Greenberger is a continuation of the story from "A Time to Love" also written by Greenberger. The "A Time to..." books are a recap of the untold events that have happened to the U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew between Star Trek: "Insurrection" and Star Trek: "Nemesis."
First off "A Time to Hate" is not a go getter action book. No Sir... The only action is hand to hand and there are two different storylines that the author is trying to keep the reader's interested in, and there is adequate interation between the characters as we read on in the book. I for one, found this book could have used a little more detail in its character development as they are searching for their career goals on the Enterprise and elsewhere in the Federation. It looks like Captain Picard's stellar bridge crew is in for some major changes.
"A Time to Hate" centers around two major themes within the book. First is the resolution of the conflict between the two major races that inhabit Delta Sigma IV. As the effects of the liscom gas has made the Bader and the Dorset, two highly aggressive races, work together in harmony, but has shortened their lifespans. The Federation has come to the rescue and found a cure, but at what price and to what extent has the cure been used? The book evolves with a few interesting twists in this storyline.
The Second storyline is that of the resolution of the estrangement between Kyle and Will Riker, father and son. This story is for all those who like to read about Will Riker in these Star Trek Books and he gets a lot of book time in this story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting Better, But Still Predictable July 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This "A Time To" series has been rather disappointing with it's previous books. These recent books by Robert Greenberger have been slightly better thant the previous books, but they still could be better.
A problem with this book is repetitiveness. We constantly have Dr. Crusher contemplating on if she should accept a job offering at Starfleet Medical. Well, guess what? It's already stated on the back cover what her decision is so this constant should I/shouldn't I gets tedious and rather annoying.
Than there's the over the top action. While I understand that this is set on a planet where the society is falling a part and all sorts of crap will hit the fan, there's only so much of it you can read before you stop caring. And this book will do that to you half-way through.
The relationship between Commander Riker and his father is a bit cliched, and, without going into detailed spoilers, has a very predictable outcome.
Really, this book should only get two stars, but the end of it which implies some shady dealings going on in the Federation government was interesting enoug to earn it an extra star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best of the A Time to� series July 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has been the only novel in this series to catch me off guard, and I loved it.
This book is the second part of a developing story on a young Federation world where the native population has been drugged by a natural element to the planet. This gas also shaved years off of each generation. In an attempt to solve this problem, Starfleet Medical releases an outbreak of violence threatening to tear the planet apart.
In the truest Star Trek fashion, the grand medical tea of the Enterprise comes to the rescue with a cure. But in a way only The Next Generation can do, they argue the morality of this cure and force the Picard into deciding the fate of this world.
In the second plot line, the Rikers-Will and Kyle-struggle to bring an end to the violence in their own way. They find the initial victim of Starfleet's error and try to return him to the medics to help bring about a cure. I will not spoil the story for you but this is the plot line that is most like a red herring. I was shocked at the resolution. I loved every word but felt my emotions yanked perpendicular to where I was headed.
This story is does include the proposal of marriage and the offer of the Titan to Riker. There was no surprise with either of these two. But this is not the final section of this book and this little footnote to the story, the finale, bring about more questions.
