An excellent follow-up to a horrible movie! This book takes place immediately after the events of the movie Star Trek: Nemesis, easily the least of any movie in the franchise. The tale features a Federation plan to save the inhabitants of a Romulan world from a devastating plague, much against the wishes of the Romulans themselves. There is a lot of information about Romulan society in this novel, along with a lot of great action and characterization. The only thing keeping me from giving it five stars is the fact that the death of Commander Data (and his "brother" B-4) are barely mentioned in the storyline.
