Comments Before Dishonor

  • Alejandro

    Exciting action against the Borg!This book is a direct sequel to the events described in the novel “Resistance” by J.M. DillardY RIVERS DON’T GET BACKSometimes,-- --in order to feel alive, one has to take chances with one’s safety.No. One really does not.While there is a novel published in-between of Resistance by J.M. Dillard and Before Dishonor by Peter David, which is the novel Q & A by Keith R.A. DeCandido, but that's a self-contained story concerning Q (the all-powerful entity, [...]

    It's getting late, and I have a lot to do, so, I'll just say this: This book was better than usual for a Star Trek novel.

  • ***Dave Hill

    (Original review: hill-kleerup/blog/2008/04/)Peter David has written a lot of very entertaining and well-crafted Star Trek novels. This, alas, is not one of them. Overall: FairStory: FairRe-Readability: FairCharacters: FairStory: This book, part of the new Next Generation novels, is a sequel to "Resistance". Unfortunately, that book was written by J.M. Dillard, and David tries, but can’t quite manage, to pick up the threads from the prequel and carry them along.The Borg are back — but, of co [...]

    a perfect example of star trek at its very best

    This is the sequel toStar Trek: Resistance by Peter David, and you should read that one first. Resistance references events in the Star Trek movies First Contact and Nemesis and the 6th season of Deep Space Nine.There are some spoilers to the novelStar Trek: Vendetta by Peter David, though you don't have to have read that book to read this one.*****My main issue with this book is that I really like the relationship between Kathryn Janeway and Chakotay. Even though in cannon they never had much o [...]

  • Julie Ann

    Hated this one. I love Peter David's "Star Trek" stuff (he has spun the best Q yarns out of all of them), but this one felt like an "anti-Voyager" rebuke.

  • David Hibberd

    Take the Enterprise, Seven of Nine, Ambassador Spock, Captain Picard, the Borg, the Planet Destroyer, Kathryn Janeway, Lady Q, and other assorted characters and the result is an enjoyable story. When Janeway joins a team investigating a dead Borg cube things happen. The Borg awaken and create a new queen who wants Picard and Seven. During its dormancy the Borg cube has changed. It isn't good. It is up to the Enterprise and others to defeat the Borg. We know that Starfleet will prevail, but it is [...]

    I have long considered Star Trek novels to be a kind of "cotton-candy" literature--mostly sugar and little substance. This novel doesn't break out of this established mold. Also included is something that has frequently annoyed me with fan-produced and professional non-canon stories--the inclusion of cross-series characters and references. Of course, I can certainly understand the compulsion, considering how all the Trek series are taking place within the same universe, and there is precedent ev [...]

  • Jimyanni

    Peter David is an entertaining author; he is very good at telling a good story, with plenty of action and interesting characters. He handles established characters well, and has a good feel for who they are and what they would do in a given situation. His tone is always recognizable to an experienced reader, and sometimes it gets a bit irritating if one has read too much of his work in too short a period of time. He is very fond of the "sudden reversal" in which a character proclaims definitivel [...]

  • StarMan

    I'm not a huge Star Trek novel reader, but I've consumed a dozen or more Trek titles over the years. I rate them as their own genre, rather than compare them to "regular" sci-fi, since Trek books conform to certain rules and expectations of their own.Before Dishonor is Book 2 in the "Borg Wars" series, and is one of the better Trek books I've read. It stars one of my two favorite non-TOS* Trek characters: Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One (aka Annika Hansen). The holographic [...]

  • Katie Buerk

    This book was awesome super hero Picard and damsel in distress to mad scientist crusher get up close and personal with the Borg queen

  • John Cipolla

    I liked this story. was interesting how picard spock and crew worked to get the planet killer from The doomsday machine to fight the borg

  • Crystal Bensley

    I want to knock off a star because of a character death but it's just too damn exciting a story! Love the New Frontier references too.

  • John

    Where to begin with this review. Half of me greatly appreciates how well-written, entertaining and engaging this novel is. It's Peter David, after all; he has a legitimate claim to be the most talented writer in the Star Trek litverse, and he probably is. This is a riveting, eyebrow-raising and page-turning Borg-invading-Earth adventure that I found difficult to put down. The other half of me, though, wants to whack Mr. David upside the head for a number of reasons. First, the treatment of Seven [...]

  • TK

    This is literally the worst Star Trek novel I have read. I felt like the voices of nearly ever character were inconsistent, often blending together and never felt distinct or appropriate. The plot grows steadily more and more ridiculous as the story progresses. It didn't even capture a campy fun spirit. It was just convoluted and a mess that got more and more terrible as it went on. I won't spoil the plot, but the book builds up a pretty significant threat but never moves beyond a micro perspect [...]

  • Ebenezer Scrooge

    Peter David continues to be, far and away, The Best Writer of Star Trek Novels. In the early days, there wasn't much competition in my opinion. But the so-called relaunch novels have been fantastic, like they are having the authors actually take the time to write a good story. And it seems like they have had some freedom now that they don't have to stay tied down to a tv series (by which I mean going beyond the movie/tv shows timelines and not staying within it) they can pretty much do what they [...]

  • Daniel Kukwa

    The first book on the long road to Kathryn Janeway's fall & resurrection, and a semi-sequel to "Vendetta", this is all action-packed plot, hurtling along at a break-neck pace but never losing control, thanks to Peter David's steel-handed authorship. This is an unyielding adrenaline rush from start to finish, with added doses of Mr. David's best jokes to lighten the apocalyptic mood.

  • Goldenwattle

    An enjoyable read. It improved as it went.

  • Derkanus

    Summary: This book picks up right where Resistance left off: The Borg super cube has been left derelict, and Admiral Janeway beams aboard to research it. She receives a portentous warning from Lady Q however, that even though Janeway thinks she will live long enough to defeat the Borg queen in the future (ST:VOY Endgame), the timeline can be altered and those events might not come to pass. Janeway is then subsequently "absorbed" into the walls of the cube and assimilated into the next Borg queen [...]

    This is the first full ebook I purchased that I thought was worth the entire price. There seems to be a trend lately of shorter books that make the ebook price seem a little much (considering one can get a print version used and the general idea that ebooks should be cheaper, but I've had that latter discussion many times).I read Greater than the Sum and Star Trek: The Next Generation-Losing the Peace prior to this one, already aware of the major Janeway spoiler.Peter David bridges 3 Star Trek u [...]

  • Matthew

    I thought this book was awesome. I find some of the other reviews and I've read here and on to be uber-nit-picky. I found the ambiguity of the mutiny to be excellent and in the great tradition of Star Trek (even if Roddenberry conceived of less internal conflict possible on a starship) and asked very interesting questions about the capacity of a charismatic captain to really function in a military organization as did Captain Kirk. Plus I found really flooring the catastrophe that Janeway is put [...]

  • Edwick

    I love the concept of novels, but its usually pretty hard for me as a reader to sit down, get sucked in and power through a 400 page novel. This book I did just that, and it was awesome. It was an easy read and great experience to get my brain a little more practice in reading bigger novels.I enjoyed this book in the post-nemesis series of Trek novels. The Borg were insane and the cast of characters was pretty good.Paramount states anything seen on-screen (movies, TV) is canon and "officially" h [...]

    There hasn't been new trek for me in a long time, and this book was a walk down memory lane. Overall entertaining and fun.The good thing is that it features some of my favourite and/or most familiar characters: Spock, Picard, Seven, Janeway, Q and of course, the BORG! And for most parts, they talk and behave like I remember how they would. The bad is that the rest of the time, they talk and behave like any Peter David character would, with snappy one liners and witty, if sometimes predictable, i [...]

  • Elizabeth Perez

    This book is about the TNG crew and part of the Voyager crew with Spock basically taking on the Borg and doing what they have to to save earth. There was just so much good about this novel although I do understand how some gave it such a low rating. So the bad: I feel like David didn't quite nail some of the characters like Worf and lady Q. I just can not see the Q's actually thinking it's funny that anyone would die in a church. Star Trek is made by an atheist but I still felt those comments we [...]

  • Noah

    This is a book that I acutally finished today - rather than weeks ago. I hope to improve on that.I tend to read a lot of different books simultaneously. Some based on location (the bedside, the bathroom, the bus) others based on interest (the bedside often includes a stack of seven titles at various stages, and I pick up the one that matches my mood at the time - often something fictional (or two or three), something religious, something scientific, something sociological). This means that it ca [...]

    "Before Dishonour" follows directly on from the events of "Resistance"Admiral Janeway is on her way to examine the Borg cube defeated at the end of "Resistance" while the Enterprise is on it's way to Vulcan to attend a ceremony honouring the late Ambassador SarekA dire warning from Lady Q (see Voyager episode "The Q and the Grey)isn't enough to deter Janeway from her visit to the cube and it's not long before she discovers that the Borg haven't been defeated. They've evolvedOnce again it's up to [...]

  • Allison

    Bloated continuity. I hadn't read resistance prior to this so a lot of references passed me by- as someone mentioned in another review, this book is in desperate need of a recap before the book begins.The story is fair, some of the dialogue made me chuckle, characters are fairly fleshed out and distinguishable which is a relief after KG's Voyager novels. That's about where the good ends. For the most part, about 40 percent of the way through this novel became too over saturated- not enough time [...]

  • Charles

    I've never been a huge fan of Peter David's Star Trek stuff. It's hit or miss with me. This was an okay story, but I'm taking points off because this was a direct sequel to another book, a continuation of that storyline. There were so many things being referenced from that previous book that I was quite confused early on. I thought they were referring to events in the movie "First Contact," but it slowly became evident that that was not the case. It would have been nice if somewhere in the book, [...]

  • Eileen

    Hahaha, I get it. This wasn't really Peter David! It was doubtlessly the same ghost-writing imposter who butchered Blood Canticle, a mockery of the Vampire Chronicles supposedly written by Anne Rice. At least, I hope it was.Because honestly, there's not much I can say about this, which is frustrating because I was so incredibly let down. Peter David's Vendetta is one of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels, right up there with Dan Simmons's Hyperion. So when I heard that there was a sequel, I was [...]
