Book Review: The Persistence of Memory

Star Trek The Next Generation: Cold Equations Book 1 The Persistence of Memory by David Mack

The Enterprise crew investigate the mysterious and violent theft of androids from a high security lab. It leads the starship to a desolate world, a reunion with someone believed long dead and a tale of AIs, death and military build up. This is a good enjoyable adventure even if the action is inexplicably broken up by Picard googooing over his son.

Best Lines:
“Data; he usually exhibits the oratorical skill of a house-plant.”

“Is one world-slaughtering alien menace really so different from another?”

“Why should I go back to a quadrant littered with burning worlds.”
