Good old fashioned Next Gen fun2000年7月5日に英国でレビュー済み
It's about time that we had a novel that echo's the good old days of Star Trek Next Gen books. Gemworld is intriguing and impossible to put down, Don't buy part 1 alone to "see" what you think as you will be eagerly waiting for part 2. The Enterprise-E is tested to it's limits in a story featuring Melora Pazlar of DS9 fame as she battles to save her dying world from it's internal political problems and it's crystal formations which threaten to destroy Gemworld. Go for it! you won't be disappointed.

Revenge of the nerd? Well.....call it triumph.2000年2月3日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Engineer Reg Barclay has always reminded me of the character Theodore Honey in Nevil Shute's "No Highway" (Honey was played by Jimmy Stewart in the movie). He's always been tentative and socially inept, but he wouldn't be an engineer on a major starship if he wasn't competent there. So, as with Honey in the Shute novel, once Barclay has to face a situation where he's good at what's invoved, he's going to score a victory. The story involves a crystalline world protected by a force shield. The engineering involving the "shell" has over the centuries evolved into a religion, but the shell is in danger due to a stellar anomaly a bit like a black hole, and all the dogma surrounding the religion/ techology isn't helping matters one bit. So Barclay ends up on the away team, accompanied by a female crewmember who's from that world. Here's a hint--after Barclay's long-standing unrequited crush on Counselor Troi, he becomes a big hit with this lady. After all, he's the hero, and the hero gets the girl. The story continues in the other book in this pair, "Gemworld Book 2". If you're going to get this one, you have to get the other--it takes both to tell the story.
