It was nice to see Riker and the diverse crew of the starship Titan back in a new book, written by James Swallow. The book is fun, thoughtful and action-packed, pretty much everything I want in a Titan novel. Read my full review here: Star Trek: Titan: Synthesis book review | Sci-Fi Books Club

This is my favorite book out of the 6 set series. The Destiny books were good and this stands right up there with them. The Titan is out and about moving on with their exploration and the book starts off with a simple but refreshing, if not a bit slow, story arch of daily life on-board a star ship exploration. Then out of nowhere the main plot starts. Riker and crew make contact with a race of intelligent yet emotional machines. What is meant to be a simple away mission brings the USS Titan in the middle of an ancient war of attrition between the AIs and a entity known as the Null. The rest of the story simply needs to be read.

James Swallow does a wonderful job using the diverseness of the Titan crew to convey his story from many angles. We get to see more of each character's strengths, weaknesses, and mannerisms really unlike any of the past six books. The plot is simi-complex at first and thus pulls from many facets of the crew members' lives.

This story is intriguing and a well-paced read that should please anyone who has kept current with the series but also as well as people who are familiar with Star Trek TNG but maybe never read a Titan book before.
