Though only given 50% of the book in order to create my review, it has caught my interest. Staring much of the ST:NG cast, the main focus, at least for the first half of the book is on Lucas Picard (aka Locutus of the Borg) and Data. It appears that the Borg has finally devised a means to defeat the Federation - but even as they do, Picard and the Federation leaders are devising a means to fight back - though it may take centuries to finish the job.
One can only hope that they can finish the task in the last half of the book - an ending I will be waiting to read in the near future. As the book moves forward and backward through time, the reader begins to see the nature of the plot - both its failures and its successes. The Borg, as always, is deadly, and it will take a carefully laid trap to bring an end to their current attack on the Federation planets - a trap that will be 5 centuries in the making.
