    1. There are so many instances where the TV series left viewers hanging. These short stories answer some of the questions raised and round out otherwise flat characters. I especially wanted to read about when Picard took Admiral Jarok's ("The Defector") suicide note to his wife and daughter. And it was great to get some background on Stefan DeSeve from "Face of the Enemy."Now I'm exploring to see what other goodies are waiting in this book.

    2. Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Sky's the Limit by various This is an anthology of stories set within the various seasons of TNG and the movies. Overall a good reading experience, even if the quality of the stories differs. I read the framing stories, Meet with Triumph and Disaster/Trust Yourself When All Men Doubt by Schuster & Mollmann, as one story - I didn't quite know what to make of the first story until I read the conclusion, got the hint about Tapestry and of course Wolf 359. It' [...]

    3. I Enjoyed This BookI enjoyed all the stories. It was time well spent. Star Trek has always been part of my life. The crew members have been and always will be my family and friends.

    4. Excellent collection of star trek storiesI really enjoyed these stories that occurred through out the seasons of star trek the next generation. I found the last story to be extremely emotional .I look forward to reading more like this.

    5. Three and a half star, really. Better than mediocre, but not really as good as I generally expect from a four-star book. This is a collection of Next Generation short stories, which is not really a format I care for; still 13 of the 14 stories were at least okay, and some were quite good. The exception was the last story, which was a pretty dull introspective on Picard's mindset after the costly victory over Shinzon in "Star Trek: Nemesis". In that story, nothing much happens at all other than P [...]

    6. The good thing about Star Trek novel is that the paper medium allows writer more space, more time and more resources to tell a story than a costly TV production.This book is a collection of short stories about TNG characters: that fact already wastes the strongest point of any books. Beside this, all stories appears just drafts of possible stories to be developed. Everything is rushed and approximate. The most part of the stories are plain bad, the others are too short to be of any interest. Pro [...]

    7. An excellent collection of short stories from various time periods in the history of ST-TNG, with quite a few focusing on the era around the final film. There are some very interesting narratives and visions here, and it's definitely worth the time of any Trek fan to read this one. My personal favorites are the one that takes a different view on the ultimate resolution of the episode "Journey's End" and the tale of Worf learning to take care of Date's cat Spot, which is told from both their poin [...]

    8. Probably more like 3.5 stars, but I don't do half starsOnly picked this up because I've 'met' one of the authors online, and wasfeeling stalkerish curious. And of course I was a big TNG fan back in the day. It was really pleasant to reacquaint myself with what felt like a bunch of old friends. I didn't read all the stories in the anthology, skipping any that didn't engage my interest sufficiently within the first page or 2. I think in the end I read all but about 3 of them. A most enjoyable litt [...]

    9. This was my first try reading a Star Trek short story collection. I can't believe how much I enjoyed it. I have read some st novels over the years and was never very impressed. I think the universe really lends itself to short story form (or maybe it's just that I already know the characters) but I will definitely be reading more of these in the future.

    10. Wow! Talk about a stupendous collection of short stories that fill in the gaps between seasons and movies in the Star Trek TNG universe. If you are a fan of the TV series and movies, this book is a great supplement to expand the depth of the Star Trek TNG world. (Of course I recommend all of the Star Trek TNG books, but THAT's a lot of reading!)

    11. A selection of short stories based on the Next Gen. They start at before the beginning, and end just before Riker goes off to Titan. I particularly liked the Barclay story and the Four Lights. Yes, Picard remeets his torturer. A good read.

    12. My favorite stories were "Acts of Compassion", "Redshift", "Among the Clouds" and "Thinking of You".

    13. I nice collection of short stories, including one that is partially from the point of view of Spot (Data's cat)
