    1. Cool Sci Fi Adventure ENGINEERING A STORY any government is only one crisis away from either anarchy or totaliarianism.While this is indeed a Deep Space Nine story, I think that they could easily published it as a Starfleet Corps of Engineers novel too, since the story is focused on Chief Miles O Brien and Lt Cmdr Nog, that both are the key engineers of the new Deep Space 9 Frontier class station, and even when the narrative occurs in other space station, still is a story full of engineering con [...]

    2. An easy pleasant binge read, but it was less than I was expecting Although the overall story was entertaining enough, there were two issues that bothered me 1 the relationship gold that existed between O Brien and Nog in televised DS9 didn t seem to be recaptured here 2 I simply wasn t that interested in the rehabilitation of former Captain Ben Maxwell This novel was a decent enough diversion, but I need some meaty DS9 noweferably Sisko s new adventures in the Gamma Quadrant.

    3. Reasonable book, nothing extremely exciting overall A small contained storyline with O brien and Nog In that respect does reasonable well.

    4. Not everyone is going to love this story It is far outside the norm for a Star Trek novel, but to me, it was perfect I love character studies, and Benjamin Maxwell is one of the most fascinating secondary characters on Trek The exploration of his past, and the past of the other characters in this novel, make Force and Motion a five star book for me.Full review treklit 2016 10 F

    5. Actual review forthcoming, with coherent words and whatnot It s good, very good, but I m just sitting here at 1 AM staring into space kind of laughing, tad maniacally, because this was Wild from beginning to end, but mostly That Ending that ending Surreal madness, possibly genius, and exactly what my poor brain needed GOOD NIGHT

    6. I always love it when they bring back a character from one of the TV series and show us what he or she or it is up to now This time up, former Captain Benjamin Maxwell from The Next Generation.Ben Maxwell spent time in a penal colony following his destruction of a Cardassian ship and threatening another while following a hunch that they were arming for war Years later, he s a free man, and working as a janitor on a remote starbase populated by eccentric researchers Chief O Brian is ordered to ta [...]

    7. These Star Trek books are my guilty pleasure Love keeping in touch with that universe of characters and setting This one brings back a character from a TNG episode and imagines how his life proceeded from that tragic turn in the series.The storytelling jumps all over the place chronologically, which makes following the story confusing Otherwise it is a serviceable installment for Trek fans.

    8. Fantastic novel, and first comedy I can remember in a Trek book for a while now Yet it s also a poignant story about a damaged man and his recovery out in the back end of space Nicely absurd in places and always riveting I loved this book.

    11. I ll be the first to admit as a reader that I m always a bit skeptical when an author in any Star Trek universe brings back a character we ve not seen in a while With Force Motion , Jeffrey Lang brings back the now disgraced Captain Benjamin Maxwell from TNG s The Wounded with a book that is so badly put together that even the main plot which may not cover half the pages of the book can t save it even if it tried The main plot has the with Chief O Brien Nog headed for station Robert Hooke which [...]

    12. Too disjointed and meaninglessJust lacking of a good story and richness found in normal star trek novelsry abstract and inconsistent timelines with poor depth in story and characters, hard to buy into , no real goals, no real or in fact resolutions Lots of starts and stops and sputters that began and ended nowhere Lots of name dropping techniquech as the mention of Vics lounge but without development and sour after taste wondering why it was brought up at all, same with mention of shedi meta gen [...]

    13. With a cool cover art and exciting premise, I eagerly jumped into reading Force and Motion as soon as I received it last week I had recently rewatched the TNG episode The Wounded on BBC America, so I knew who the character Benjamin Maxwell was, but I had no clue there was second DS9 After a quick Wiki search, I learned that the original DS9 was destroyed awhile back in the book series and a new Federation DS9 was built.While twenty years have passed since The Wounded, Chief Miles O Brien feels l [...]

    14. Capt Ben Maxwell was one of the most interesting characters on Star Trek The Next Generation He threw his command away after destroying a Cardassian ship during peacetime because he was convinced the race was re arming I loved the episode because it explored the losses felt by combatants in war In this case, Maxwell still has nightmares about the massacre of his family.Chief Miles O Brian of the USS Enterprise and a former shipmate of Maxwell convinces him to surrender In this new novel, we find [...]

    15. Thankfully, not yet another rehash of the assassination or religious zealot plots However, it jumped all over the place and seemed to both take itself too seriously and be too silly at inappropriate times It was awkward both in organization and prose J.Lang can do better, and has done better in the past.Might not be his worst work, but it s down there with it Feels like something written over a weekend to meet a deadline after months of procrastination.
