Book Review: Q-In-Law (Star Trek: The Next Generation #18)



Q-In-Law (Star Trek: The Next Generation #18) by Peter David
Rating: 3/5

"Is it necessary to turn the Enterprise into a catering hall?" - Worf

The Enterprise is hosting a wedding for a young couple from conflicting families (think Romeo/Juliet, but not). Worf is upset because he doesn't like visitors and of course everyone is up to no good (80% of the time he's right). Riker is depressed because he realizes he doesn't have love in his life. Picard is upset because Lwaxana Troi is a guest and attempts to avoid her romantic overtures. Deanna is upset because her mother is in mourning and telling everyone she is dead. Lwaxana is upset (and horny as usual) because her daughter will never marry. And then Q arrives... and as usual all hell breaks loose.

Peter David, one of my favorite TNG authors did a good job keeping me reading, but that's because he's a good writer, but the plot of this novel was rather weak. But that's okay, just consider this like one of those kooky TNG episodes where you know they only wrote it to give screen time to certain individuals (spoiler alert - Q and Lwaxana).

  1. This was probably the first Star Trek novel that I ever read when I was a teenager. You're right about it having a weak plot, but I remember really enjoying it. I thought it was funny. It certainly got me hooked as a Peter David fan from that point on.
