    One thought on “Ghost Ship”

    1. (Cross-posted to my blog, Android Dreamer.)A consistent problem in bigger franchises such as Star Trek in which tie-in media is released almost simultaneously with the primary media is that who a character really turns out to be is a bit fuzzy. Generally, a writer of a novel such as this has very little to go on aside from rough preliminary outlines and early scripts. Keeping this in mind, I went into reading Ghost Ship reading kid's gloves.Being the first novel in the Star Trek: The Next Genera [...]

    2. I can't say that I'm the biggest Star Trek fan by any means. By that, I only really enjoyed "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Maybe it's because I was born in the early 80's, but for some reason I really can't get into Classic Trek, and I had a hard time really getting into "Deep Space Nine." Therefore, for me it's all about "The Next Generation." Seriously, I have all the episodes on DVD, I own all the comic books and now I've delved into the novels! I guess I'm a pretty big "The Next Generatio [...]

    3. 3.5 starsOverall a good storyline, though I didn't always agree with the author's interpretation of character motivations/personalities. Picard was often a bit more brusque than on the show, Riker a great deal more biased, even Troi somewhat more volatile than normal. However, this is a tale set at the beginning of TNG's run, so I guess it's to be expected for the characters to be slightly rougher, still somewhat unsettled in their roles and in their relationships to each other.Other than that, [...]

    4. Yes, the characters don't match the program. Dr. Crusher wasn't one to use her son as a catspaw, Wesley wasn't so incompetent, Yar didn't have enough hair to brush it out of her eyes, Riker didn't have this much discomfort with Data, Picard was rarely such a sour patch, and there's NO universe where Troi would be called a "mind slut" by the people of this future. They tended to be way more tolerant of each other. Nevertheless, for never having seen the show, the author had a lot of interesting i [...]

    5. This was a great novel for the begining the the STTNG book series. I've read it a few times now and it holds up well after multiple readings. It's hard to believe it was written before the author had ever seen the show and had to work with only charachter sketches and a partial script of the Farpoint episode.

    6. Rounded down to 2 stars from 2.5.This novel was written extremely early in the series, and the writer chose to (or was told to) focus intently on characterization and the inner lives of the crew, before anyone (including the author) really had access to much created canon. Now, after years of canonical development, this book is essentially an alternate universe branching off within the first couple of episodes of the show. If you're looking for the comfort and familiarity of the characters you k [...]

    7. In honor of the 25th anniversary, of what would be my all time favorite show if it were not for The X-Files, Star Trek the Next Generation is coming to Blu-Ray totally redone. Having read most of the novels over two decades ago,  I thought that I would write my general feel for the serial STNG novels. I could never do a real review now, other than to say that I loved them.Star Trek the Next Generation was both my favorite science fiction series in college, and also my favorite serial novel. I [...]

    8. This is the first novel in the ST: TNG series.In 1995, a Russian ship testing a new EMP weapon, is attacked by a unknown entity and destroyed. The crew is never found. 300 years later and Deanna Troi starts having nightmares about the incident and the dead crew start visiting the Enterprise. When they are also attacked by the entity, Picard faces some difficult decisions. Is his ship more important than the souls of the dead crew?I really enjoyed revisiting the characters right at the start of t [...]

    9. The book was alright. There were some fun elements, but there was a lot I could have done without. Riker's prejudice views on Data were downright annoying. The other characterizations were a bit off too. Picard seemed like he was sitting on a cactus the entire time. Troi was emotionally stuck, and Data was anything but Data.That being said, the book succeeded at what Star Trek does so well. Ethics, prime directive, and tough decisions that end up working themselves out to help the audience come [...]

    10. Diane Carey can write some great Star Trek (check out "Best Destiny"), but lord oh lord is her first TNG novel absolutely dire. I don't recognize ANY of the characters fact, some of them are rendered as absolutely distasteful. Since when was Riker -- of ALL people -- a bigot! The man understood Data immediately upon meeting him in "Encounter at Farpoint", but here we read he has an active distrust of the androidwhy?Skip thisd skip TNG book #2, and go straight to "The Children of Hamlin". You'll [...]

    11. I saw this sitting on my Kindle and decided to give it a shot. I guess I can blame most of the character differentiation on the age of the book, and the fact that they were dealing with season one characters. Still, it gave me the feeling that the author just didn't "get it" in parts. Oh, and warp 13? Hrm.

    12. Pretty good book. The characters are a little different from their television counterpartsbut not enough that it harms the book. I liked the premise, the conflict was a little contrived--but it was still a lot of fun with characters I love.

    13. Perhaps it's because this book was written when TNG was rather new, but the author did a poor job of capturing the characters' personalities, temperaments, etc.Otherwise, I thought the story was interesting.

    14. UmDon't read it. It isn't good.When I decided to try reading all the Star Trek books (or at least as many as possible before I get distracted with something else) I knew there would be some that were worse then others. I've read enough in the past to know that. But this one is really bad.There are a few problems I can easily get past. Data using contractions, Riker being referred to as Bill, some inconsistencies in the way the characters are in the show. Those can all be marked up to the book be [...]

    15. This was the very first Next Gen novel so the show itself was still in early development. Worf is described as part of the "Klinzhai tribe" to explain why Klingons have forehead ridges now. (Did DC Fontana take Roddenberry's joke about Northern and Southern Klingons seriously?) Troi calls Riker "Bill" the whole novel though she only did in one episode and it never took off. According to this book, she does so because her father shaved with Brill Cream? How lame is that?I had forgotten what unlik [...]

    16. Riker was an awful narrator and completely out of character. And the romance I was supposed to care about between he and Deanna was not compelling in any way. It hindered the storytelling, having him spend pages thinking about her when we already knew her perspective. Deanna was also extremely out of character, as were Yar, Picard, and Data (at some points). The only interpretation I enjoyed was of Geordi, and even then I don’t think the author did it intentionally (though if I wasn’t suppos [...]

    17. This book was a bit of a slog, especially with the opening chapter. The gratuitous use of the word "comrade" made the dialogue feel comedic to me. This novel was just bland and didn't seem to pick up steam until the middle. The synopsis makes this story sound like a great adventure but it falls flat. I originally intended to rate this as one star but the very end, the last chapter, redeemed it for me.

    18. A decent story with an intriguing plot. The biggest issue is the author had to write it before the show was filmed or even fully cast so the characters do not quite match their TV show personas. I did enjoy the Geordi LaForge/Data friendship as it felt sincere and true to how it became on the show. A decent read but nothing special or noteworthy.

    19. This book was in the spirit of the series. I felt that some of the characters did not hold true to the show. LaForge was a bit insubordinate, and Troi a bit weak. Data was a little too human. It's a quick read and a nice break from a heavy book. Recommended if you liked the show.

    20. Not bad. Certain characters act differently than they should but you have to remember when it was written.

    21. After reading the novelization of ENCOUNTER AT FARPPOINT, I was curious what the first numbered, original TNG tie-in novel was like. This is GHOST SHIP by Diane Carey, published in 1988. I've now read it so you don't have to.Comments:--The cover is by a Spanish artist called Enric Torres-Prat, a prolific artist who started in the 60s and produced work steadily through the late 80s. In the 70s he appears to have developed part of his signature style of facial composition, which involves rich hues [...]

    22. I'm pretty new to the Star Trek fandom and therefore haven't been exposed to much of it. Whether or not this was a good place to start, Ghost Ship was my first Trek novel. The book certainly wasn't bad. The author seemed to know where she was going with the plot, but the characters seemed off (even from what little I've seen of them) and the feel of the novel just wasn't quite right. The book opens with an introduction to the Sergei G. Gorshkov's crew. This really captured my interest, as the ch [...]

    23. This was the first STNG book release along with the series. There are common problems in that situation, such as the characters had not yet been fully developed in the show. So, who they are in the book really doesn't reflect the characters we came to know in the show. Removing those challenges it was a pretty good book. Often Star Trek goes into deep science, philosophy, politics, and other meaningful topics. I was taken by surprise to find this story focusing on euthanasia. There were 3 or 4 c [...]

    24. The Grand Star Trek Book Review #1: Ghost Ship (TNG #1)I've decided to go back and review all of the Star Trek books I've read. Why? Because I'm a complete loser, that's why!Anyway, don't ask me to remember too much. I've read one Star Trek book since 2002 so my mind usually remembers where I bought the books, when I read them and where, and if they were good, bad, or terrible.Oddly, I read Ghost Ship really late and it was towards the end of my Trek reading days, sometime around 2001 before I w [...]

    25. I do not read a Trek novel for its perfectly attenuated narrative accuracy, nor do I expect an independently written Trek one-off to attain the gravitas of a well crafted DS9 or NG episode. I approach it as an end in itself, cradled in the mythos of the Trekiverse, beholden to it, but free of its ultimate restraints. In this approach I find Ghost Ship a smoothly crafted novel more as a study of the craft of franchise novelization and less as a reflection of its nearness to accurate characterizat [...]

    26. Ghost Ship mostly revolves around Geordi and Data's struggle to determine whether he is more than a machine and the survival of the Enterprise from the attack by the electrical cloud being. Some inconsistencies in character portrayal are: 1) Commander Riker is extremely harsh toward Data, 2) Captain Picard is more demanding than he normally is, and 3) Geordi shows open distain toward Riker. I do love a good Star Trek: The Next Generation story. This book came out less than a year after the show [...]
