The ruler of a non-federation planet requests starfleet intervention in a civil uprising, Tasha Yar and Data get sent on their own to see whats what. As usual things are not to to be taken at face value.
I knew I'd like this book from the outset, because who can deny that Tasha and Data were two of the most interesting characters on TNG. And that we never saw enough of Tasha, and that we could never have enough of Data.
Of course theres always the impending doom hanging over this book, as I knew it was set only slightly before the episode where Tasha Yar dies, so I wasn't waiting for the perfect happy ending, but it really good none-the-less.See my other reviews of the Star Trek: The Next Generation novels:
