To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Quite a boring book, I just found myself finishing it for the sake of completion - there are better star trek TNG novels out there. I don't enjoy Wesley as a character but many authors seem to use him a lot, like in this story. There is a good dynamic between Picard and Offenhouse (the guy they rescued from cryogenic freezing in an early episode), but the other TNG characters are hardly involved in this story.
