Product Description

For more than a decade, actor John de Lancie has delighted and provoked audiences as Star Trek®'s most unpredictable antagonist, the enigmatic cosmic entity known only as Q. Now de Lancie has turned his talent and imagination to the creation of a whole new world, a startling vision of Earth on the brink of an evolutionary leap in human consciousness....

It is the day after tomorrow, early in the next millenia, and all over the world people begin experiencing bizarre mental transformations. The majority of men and woman find their minds shutting down, but a handful develop astounding new psychic abilities. They are the adepts.

An ordinary family man. An autistic child. A beautiful Guatemalan revolutionary. A mysterious European traveler with vast ambitions and a secret agenda. As society breaks apart and new alliances form, these strangers become locked in a crucial battle to determine the future of a brave new world.

But more than human minds are at war here, for deep beneath the earth, an alien intelligence, dormant for thirty million years, is stirring once again, and sending its psychic tendrils into the minds of a vulnerable multitude. This inhuman entity has its own plans for the Earth, and they do not include Homo sapiens. Fighting amongst themselves, the adepts can scarcely imagine the awesome and ancient intelligence that will ultimately test a new breed of humanity.

Soldier Of Light is a profound and mind-warping exploration of the outer limits of the mind's potential -- written by innovative and always surprising personalities. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Most Creative Apocolypse I've Read!
Who knew that there was something like this in the brain of John deLance?In everything with JdL that I've watched, he's always been the bad guy or the aggrevator of some sort.The closest thing to an exception to this has been Q, who has gone from annoying to good guy, taking the span of three series to do so.I wasn't sure what to expect when I sat down to read this book, but it certainly wasn't this.This is an experimental apocolyptic adventure in sci-fi, and I don't think anyone could have done it better.I was very pleased with this book and think that I could read it many more times over the years.Very bold for a new author.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Book is great!!!!
In this book two brothers, Owen and Harley, are entangled in a world where something is trying to erase humanity. This being, called "The One", is a very ancient being who has gone mad and has decided to destroy every living thing in the world. In the beginning of the story "The One" resides in the center of the earth in a protective shell. While he is risingup to kill everything, his old and powerful mind is sending psychic rays that mess up the human brain badly. There are some exceptions. Those who are in the exceptions getamazing psychic powers.
The Keegans are an exception also. Owen, his wife, and his daughter Constance , who before "The One" started rising wa autistic" set out away from the UNcivilized world to some where there are not a lot of people. Harley meets a little boy with powers stronger than his. When Owen is near Guatamala he docks the ship near the land becuse Kate (his wife) is sick, from "The One", and Constance runs off to find a friend.
After awhile of searching for Constance, Owen meets a man named Van-Meers who has just saved Constance from a group of people who were going to kill her because they were confused about what was happening to the world. Well when they find her, Kate is about to die. Van-Meers who has very strong powers can bring her back from the death side. After he is done he tells Owen that now he has to join his clan or die. Thinking of his family Owen decides to join. When they were traveling Owen reached out to Harley with telepathy and told him that they were in trouble and needed help. When Harley finally shows up Van-Meers is stronger than before and blasts both the Keegan brothers. After they wake up they find that the people are gone with Constance and Kate. When they finally find Van-Meers and their family, they find them near a volcano. They then find out that "The One" is very near the surface and is about to come out. After they get there Owen and Harley confront Van-Meers and with the help of Kate they succed in killing him. As soon as van-Meers is dead "The One" shows himself and tries to kill the Keegans. But with all their strength combined they eventually kill it. I loved this book and recommend it to any advanced reader.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
As their world seems to be unraveling around them, the brothers Owen and Harley Keegan take action. Owen takes his wife and autistic daughter, and flees to the safety of a boat on the ocean. Harley, ever the fighter, decides stay and build a home in this new world. However, neither understands how truly new the world now is. The Earth has moved into a sphere of being, the place where true intelligence exists, and the human mind is coming to grips (or not) with the new reality. Some people gain new powers, but many die. It is a war of all against all...but it's even worse then that, for at the core of the world exists the One. For many cycles, the Earth has belonged to the One, and it has no desire to share it with the upstart newcomers - man.

I must admit to some trepidation when I picked this book up. I read I. Q., also cowritten by John De Lancie, and did not enjoy it. However, what that book tried to be, this book is. Even as the world unravels, the story stays strong and clear. This book keeps you at the edge of your seat, and up all night! I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soldier of Light, will the Keegan's survive, could you?
Soldier of Light Review

Interesting dark and dismal concept of what our future might be like, John de Lancie, actor and now writer of "Star Trek I, Q" and better known for his portray of the mischievous "Q" on Star TrekNext Generation teams with Tom Cool, Sci-fi author of "SECRET REALMS" andof "INFECTRESS" do an excellent job in keeping you riveted to the book. Thebook follows the exploits of the Keegan brothers Harley and particularlyOwen who has to try to rescue his family from the all powerful and lord ofevil, the One. Can the Keegan's survive and can they defeat the One. Willgood trimputh over evil or will the One obliterate mankind?

If you likespine-tingling adventure in our futuristic society, if you want to see afamily stretched to it limits and beyond. If you like to see heroes riskingall to defeat the evil One and if you like a love story that transcendsmost romance novels. You need to read "Soldier of Light".

The evil One isout to destroy human kind, as we know it. It will take beings of equalpower to beat the One before mankind becomes as extinct as the dinosaursthat the One destroyed.

The book is based a lot on John personal beliefsand his philosophy. You can see a lot of him and his own personal family inthe characters of this book. Tom Cool brings a lot of interestinggeographical terrains and highly descriptive scenes to the book.If youwant to see mind minulapation at it worst being used on the innocent. Youneed to buy a copy of "Soldier of Light".

I hope they will do an audiobook on "Soldier of Light" with John de Lancie as narrator. It would beterrific! Get your copy today, as "Soldier of Light" is an excellent read.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting entertainment
The world is no longer the same. However, when the change came it was not nuclear, chemical, or biological. Instead the change was psychic. Most of humanity simply went insane, turning into cesspools of angry rioters. A fewbecame adepts with extra sensory powers to fight to stay human. However,the One plans to destroy all earthlings as it once ended the reign of thedinosaurs for the recently awakened One relishes destruction on a globalscale.

Two Bay area siblings Owen and Harley Keegan attain powers tocombat the One. As civilization collapses, Harley becomes a knight inshining armor rescuing helpless females from insidious thugs. Owen,accompanied by his wife Kate and their daughter Constance, flee Oaklandlooking for sanctuary. However, the One begins to entice the two femalesinto the world of evil. Owen knows his fight with the One has turnedpersonal as he will brave hell for his heavenly cause.

SOLDIER OFLIGHT is a strange, action-packed apocalyptic tale that will please diehard fans of the sub-genre. The story line vividly describes apost-apocalyptic world and the action never slows down for a nanosecond.However, the characters never seem genuine nor attain reader empathy(especially the pathetic women) and the One appears more like anunder-nourished Galactus. John De Lancie & Tom Cool know how to packthe action, but some readers will remain cool towards this tale.

Product Description
In this thrilling adventure, you will be dropped deep into another spectacular culture - the Borg, the strange and powerful race eager to assimilate the Federation.

Cadet Qaylan Furlong's father was killed by the Borg in the battle of Wolf 359. Now, ten years later, the Borg are attacking again, and Starfleet won't allow Cadet Furlong to stay aboard the Starship Cheyenne to avenge his father's death - but Q will. He'll do better than that, in fact, taking the cadet back in time ten years and putting Qaylan on the same ship as his father to give him a chance to save him - and the entire Federation - on a mission of extreme danger, difficult choices, and surprising results.

John deLancie (in his role as "Q") headlines a Star Trek cast and crew in this chilling experience of the future and the adventures of the heroic Starfleet officer who must save the Federation! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Star Trek: Borg - A New Chapter for the Saga
When I first played the game, I was fascinated, not just by the gameplay, but the story and the characters. In fact, when I reached the end of the game, I was disappointed that the story of the U.S.S. Righteous had come to an end.

In this audio adventure (great for listening to in the car!), it is 6 months after the events which transpired in the game, and Cadet Qaylan Furlong (who finally has a voice!) is describing what happened in the game, in his personal log.

A lot of the dialogue is recycled from the game, but that's to be expected. However, new dialogue was also recorded by the cast of the game, creating a compelling first-person narrative which plays for an hour. And even better - we learn what happened to the crew of the Righteous after the game's ending! I'm not going to tell you what it is, I don't want to ruin it, but if you enjoyed the game, like Star Trek audio cassettes, or just want a good Trek story, then you will not be sorry to buy this product.

I wasn't!

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting at the very least!
To say the least, this is an interesting way to spend an hour or so on the highway.As the other reviewers have stated, it seems more like a video game.The main character gets himself waxed, Q come's in, complain's and runs him back to just before he screwed up.A decent plot, that get's caught up in the spirit of being a video game, which makes it somewhat tedious.John DeLancie and the other readers do a pretty good job with what was given to them though.

1-0 out of 5 stars PAIN!
In this Star Trek work based on a video game the main character receives the ability to go into a PAIN TRANCE.The idea being that when you are in this trance, you pass out and escape any pain the body may receive.Oh howI wished for this ability while the work was inflicted on me.The haplessstringing together of sections of the video game with a narration attemptsto make this into a fluid work.It fails in amazing fashion.The videogame roots are so obvious it is painful to listen too.The main charterdies over and over (much like you must during the game) and is set back ona boring path that makes no sense whatsoever.Even poor Q seems bored bythe whole thing.Avoid.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best ever !!!!!
Should be the next Star Trek movie

1-0 out of 5 stars Too much like a computer adventure game
The plot of this story is too simplistic and too much like watchingsomeone play a computer adventure game. The hero dies or fails the mission,so is repeatedly taken back to the previous spot to try again.Just likeplaying a computer game, dying, and them starting back from the last savedposition.Q, rather than being the nuissance that he usually is, plays therole of the game's "hint book".There's also the feeling oflimited choice in the character's action, just as with an adventure game.(For example, there are oonly three things that the hypo-syringe can beused for at the end, vs. the kind of open-ended use of things that existsin real life.) ...

Product Description

As the end of the twentieth century nears, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth. When it hits, the impact will result in the end of all life on the planet.

Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth's inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity's priorities. However, before the truth is told, the all powerful being Q appears and reminds Spock that he is prohibited from interfering in Earth's history. Besides, Q doesn't see mankind as something worth saving.

This initial encounter between the two legendary characters explodes into a battle of wits as Spock cleverly befuddles Q with his own words. As barbs are exchanged, and humanity's flaws and wonders are laid bare, Spock's logic just may convince Q that humans are indeed a species worthy of salvation, but will he be too late?

In Spock vs. Q, Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie again bring their characters to glorious life in the most lively and entertaining debate since Nixon vs. Kennedy. Recorded in front of a live audience, Spock vs. Q is a stirring audio program that could only come from Alien Voices. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Spock versus Q, can it get any better??
Dear Star Trek fans, since you are all familiar with Spock and Q it would be illogical for me to explain to you why you must purchase this item. (Un)fortunately we are not Vulcans, so we are allowed to enjoy this CD to fullest.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Seller!
Received item in excellent condition. Highly Recommend this Seller and would buy from again. This was a gift to another so I have not watched it. The receiver of this gift stated it's exactly what he wanted and is very pleased! Thank you!

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Content: Spock and Q engage in a debate regarding a potentially life-extinguishing asteroid headed toward Earth.

I bought this at a library book sale and assumed that it was a serious debate since the two actors look rather serious on the cover (hint to book artists: cover design should give indication of book content). Listening to this tape was like listening to one of those old radio broadcasts from the mid-20th century era. Spock's final words, "Say goodnight, Q", even echo the old George Burns/Gracie Allen dialogs which ended with "Say goodnight, Gracie". Although the program is supposed to be humorous and even witty - it disappoints due to the unsophisticatedsilliness which permeates the dialog. Nimoy and deLancie are fine, it is the material that is not very good.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I'd hoped for.
I did enjoy this CD but the debate between the two men sounded so scripted that it took some of the pleasure out of the experience. Unless you're a hard-core Trekker,this isn't for you.

This is a very funny, very witty exchange by two of the most misunderstood beings in our galaxy. This one is as good as the sequel is awful. Stop after you've heard this one. It is a masterpiece! ... Read more

The Maelstrom, a metaphysical whirlpool of apocalyptic proportions, is pulling all of reality into its maw. The Q Continuum pronounces that the end of everything has come, but Q refuses to meekly accept the end of all he has known. Defying the judgment of the Continuum, he sets out to derail doomsday--at whatever the cost. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Q (and John De Lancie) transcends a bad story
God becomes bored and decides that she will end the multiverse. Q sets out to rescue everything, and finds himself repeatedly bumping into Picard and Data. The storyline is confused and confusing, and the characters are pitiable caricatures of themselves.

After this outpouring of scorn let me say that somehow the authors succeeded in keeping me listening. There are two things that makes this audiobook worth listening to, and that is Q and John De Lancie himself. Peter David (one of the authors) and John De Lancie (author and reader) succeed in producing a Q at his quirky best. Therefore, if you want a good story don't stop here, but if you love Q then this book is one you should check out. [Q-Squared is much better.]

Also, I must say that I love listening to John De Lancie's voice. He does a masterful job with this audiobook. Overall, I give this audiobook a guarded recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book on Tape
Having John DeLancie, "Q", narrate this book on tape really brings the story to life.Anyone who has read the book should definitely get this CD and listen to it.It is one of the more enjoyable books on tape I have listened to.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great, except for the beginning and the ending
All in all, this is the one audiobook one should acquire if one is a fan of Q.Written by the actor who plays him, you need never worry that he will act out of character.The way that Q's journey goes is an intriguing philosophical journey.The problem is that the begging secion and the next section is done by someone else, and it justs drags the overall stry down, to the point where it seems it hardly has an ending at all.

For the record, the story takes place after the episode of ST: Voyager where Q and another have a baby.

I am reviewing the audio cassette version.John de Lancie created the character Q in the Star Trek, TNG TV show.He was always funny, fun interesting and engaging.He is all that here and he leads us and his old buddies Picard and Data on a romp across the universe to solve a mystery, and maybe even prevent the end of time itself!3 stars is for good.3 star uis for fun, and having delacie read the book himself, just made it fun to listen to.Sometimes the plot just got stupid.I went from laughing and smiling to Ughhhhh back and forth listening to this.In the end i liked it enough that i have listened to it several times now.It does get even better with a second listen, but it was 3 star on the first listen.Now if you like wierd sci fi... You may want to give this a 4 or 5. ... Read more

Product Description
The mischievous all-powerful cosmic entity known only as 'Q' has plagued Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise since the opening episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Over the millennia of his lifetime he has encountered countless challenges and many powerful enemies. But none has been so deadly as the being that now threatens not just the universe we know but all the myriad alternate universes with it. Against this attack on everything that is and everything that might have been, Q stands alone - except for Captain Picard. And with the existence of not only our own universe but thousands of others at stake, Picard must find a way to work with his nemesis - or the whole of existence as we know it will simply cease to be. A memoir in Q's own words (as only Peter David can write them) of a last-ditch effort to save the multiverse, I,Q is a stunning exploration of the nature of reality itself, enlivened by insights into the character of its cosmic hero that only John Delancie, as the actor who brought him to life in the first place, could give him. ...

EnterpriseTM is chosen as the site for the wedding.Captain Picard is pleased by the happy duty, but his pleasure is cut short by the arrival of the Federation delegate from Betazed, Lwaxana Troi, the mother of ship's counsellor, Deanna Troi.

Despite Lwaxana Troi's romantic overtures toward the captain, the celebration seems to go smoothly until the situation is further complicated by the arrival of the notorious and all powerful being called Q, who has come to examine and challenge the human concept of love. The festivities are thrown into turmoil, the powerful Tizarin families are on the verge of war, and Lwaxana Troi is determined to teach Q a lesson in love that he will never forget. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Entertaning, hilarious, very well written
I was never too fond of the character of Lxwanana Troi (although there were a couple of standout episodeswith her in the latter days of "TNG"), and Q always seemed a little too human for me. But Peter David wrote a very good novel involing them. All of the chracters are written exactly as they are in the best TV episodes -- this, as some else said, really could have made a good multi-part teleplay. There's also a subplot involving Wesley Crusher which is quite funny. The framing story is also quite believable -- the novel is not strictly comedic. "Star Trek" novels are always a mixed bag, but "TNG" fans can't go wrong with this one. I'm looking forward to reading David's "Q-Squared" after this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Nice Read For Valentine's Day
The entire time, this story felt like something I should have been reading on Valentine's Day. The whole book is about love and Q's "romance" with Deanna's mother. Overall, it is a good story but it gets silly when Lwaxana Troi takes revenge on Q for breaking her heart. I could picture it all in my head and it was pretty laughable more than threatening to read her beating Q up with Q powers of her own. A lot of the characters from TNG are missing or with little mention. I was surprised how the only cast members really in the story are Picard, Deanna and Lwaxana.

5-0 out of 5 stars If Q is in it, and Peter David is writing it, then I am reading it
Q meets Lwaxana Troi... Why wasn't this an episode in the series?Peter David who is slowly becoming my favorite Star Trek writer does it again with this incredible entertaining novel.

A wedding among two of the most important families in the Federation is about to happen.And all our favorites make roll call.Including the wonderful and very complex Lwaxana Troi and everyones favorite entity Q.Q returns to the Enterprise because he wants to know about this whole human idea of love.Since there is a wedding not to mention the love sick Lwaxana there it seems like the perfect classroom for him to experiment.In this experiment besides trying to sabotage the wedding he also becomes involved with Lwaxana which is worth the price of the book when she finds out that it is an "experiment". All hell breaks loose and Q I am sure is reminded of an old earth saying "Hell have no fury like a woman's scorn".

There is also a side story involving Wesley Crusher and his gift from the bride.A gift that shows up naked in his quarters.Ol' Wes is not one of my favorite characters but Peter David makes him tolerable without changing who he is which is a small miracle.

As always Peter David knows his Star Trek characters.That along with a wondefully fast paced story it is an impossible book to put down.One of my favorite things about any episode or book that Q is in is the chemistry he has with Captain Jean Luc Picard.This relationship is captured masterfully in this book. Lwaxana Troi is also written extremely well as she is (as usual) on the hunt for a man. This is not one of those save the universe type of stories.Not even the Enterprise can or has to save the universe every day.Still very light and funny but still one of the best Star Trek novels I have read.

Grade: A+

5-0 out of 5 stars Another of David's Effortless Wonders
Writing a humorous book is hard enough, but then make it a humorous Trek book?Good luck - but that's exactly what David accomplished in this rich, smart, TOO-QUICK jaunt of the ultimate battle of the sexes - Q vs. Lwaxana.The back-story is slight but you won't might mind in the slightest as David has a true gift for characterization, with nobody getting Worf in particular better.Plus, as a bonus of sorts, this is somewhat indirect sequel to Imzadi with many continuing threads hinted at/glaring for anyone reader of the previous books (though as usual David writes so well that non-readers of Imzadi won't be left out in any way).I can't say enough positive things about this charming little work of fantastic fiction which would have been a truly remarkable episode if ever filmed.

If you are a STNG fan, get this book.Read this book.You will enjoy it - Q guarantees it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun Read
A delightful story for Star Trek: TNG fans. The main characters are Deanna Troi's imperious mother Lwaxanna, and the god-like entity "Q." The two huge egos clash at a wedding that Picard is reluctantly hosting on the Enterprise. The bride and groom come from a Romeo and Juliet-like background, as two feuding races come together only for the young couple. But Q has an agenda of his own, simultaneously romancing Lwaxanna - to her daughter Deanna's absolute horror - and stirring up doubts and fears between the bride and the groom. How can Picard take control of what is threatening to become complete chaos on his ship?

Really a fun read. The author has great understanding of the crew of the Enterprise's characters. Q-In-Law has many laugh-out-loud parts.

I loved this when it first aired on TV and I love the CD. I wish they were still in business and recording more of these. I am a Trekkie so I may be prejudiced, but it's a great combination of story, dialog, and acting. ... Read more

Product Description


Written by Cecelia Fannon

Following their debate over the fate of mankind, Spock and Q have continued their discussions over a meal. After dining, the two return to the stage to recount their repast, which included encounters with several of Spock's former shipmates.

However, at the moment the two verbal sparring partners shake hands, a power surge places them in total darkness. Suddenly, Spock and Q are no longer on stage, but somewhere in deep space.

As they struggle to determine what has happened, a curious personality change takes hold. Spock is overcome with giddy delight. Q is much more serious, even...logical.

Masterfully performed by Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie, Star Trek® Spock vs. Q: The Sequel is a fascinating and often hilarious role reversal that reveals previously unknown sides of Spock and Q. It is a program so original it could only come from Alien Voices®. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Sure to please star trek fans!
Spock Vs Q CdStar Trek: The Spock vs. Q Collection (Gift Set)These presentations are sure to please all fans of the star trek series.The confrontations between Spock and Q manage to skillfully integrate philosophical debate with slapstick comedy in a wonderfully entertaining combination.The irascible Q juxtaposed with hyper-rational Spock makes for a mixture that truly exemplifies the priniciple of 'infinite diversity in infinite combinations.'I highly recommend these CD sets.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good...unless maybe you are a die-hard, convention-attending trekker!
OK...I've never been to a Trek convention.I've never put on "the uniform" or "the ears".I've never sparred amongst my nerd friends (of which I have many) about how many Red Shirts bite the big one in episode 22 of Season 1 of TOS.However...I have been a fan (NOT fanatic) of all things Star Trek since the day I was born.OK...tehcnically it was one week after I was born (9/8/1966) that the first episode aired, but close enough, yes?I just found this and the first "Spock vs. Q" to be a bit too contrived.It was obviously playing to the over-enthusiasm of the crowd at the live taping.All the references in the first Spock vs. Q were cute at first, but then seemed like the story would do anything to find a reference to something in the small or silver screen stuff.

Don't get me wrong.I dearly love both Leonard Nimoy and John DeLancie.Two awesome actors playing great roles in nearly every instance.This performance however could have benefited from some of the superior writing of TNG or anything afterwards.The whole "swapping minds" thing...just didn't do it for me.If they were trying to pull off a personality switch on the order of Face/Off (Travolta/Cage in a brilliant performance), then they fell way short.

I suggest saving your cash and skipping these audio presentations.Better invest your funds in some other great work by these two (TOS, TNG, films on DVD...or even some of the great films Nimoy has directed...they are all awesome!) Or maybe even save up to attend a convention!You'll get more out of meeting one or both of them...and might actually score an autograph!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining transference of personalities
In their previous duel of wits, Spock was able to best Q and now they are about to engage in a second round. However, as they are about to begin, there is an enormous surge of power and they suddenly find themselves in an unknown location. The situation is further complicated when Spock begins to take on the personality traits of Q and Q those of Spock. Since Q is robbed of his powers, and Spock does not know how to use them, there is nothing either of them can do to save themselves.
The personality transfer is very well played by Leonard Nimoy and John deLancie. The sound of Spock giggling and uttering Q-like witticisms was very entertaining. The dampening of the Q personality by applying overtones of the Spock persona was also very funny. Jokes fly back and forth between them as they continue their verbal sparring, although now their personalities are blended with the opposite dominant in the other's body. Of course, in the end, the situation is resolved and they save themselves.
Fun to listen to, this tape is an aspect of Star Trek that is just good, clean entertainment. I enjoyed it so much I listened to it twice.

5-0 out of 5 stars As great as you imagine.
Its an epic battle of wits, on the dr. Faustus scale.
Truly a great and unique treat for any Star Trek fan.
Makes a great Christmas gift! :-)
Get it. You ain'T gonna regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great followup!
This was as good as or better than the first one.It was surprising and very enjoyable to hear the personality trade between the two.Spock doing all the singing and laughing like Q.John de Lancie wasn't too highly convincing playing a logical minded Spock, but who cares.He's one person who cannot downplay his personality too much.Highly enjoyable and hopefully there will be a third one. ...

Product Description

The enigmatic entity known as Q remains one of the greatest mysteries in the universe, yet no one, perhaps, understands Q as well as actor John de Lancie, who has played Q. on television for more than a decade. Now de Lancie and Peter David, the bestselling author of such acclaimed novels as Q-in-Law and Q-Squared have joined forces to send Q on an unforgettable cosmic odyssey, told from the mischievous trickster's own unique point of view.

The Maelstrom, a metaphysical whirlpool of apocalyptic proportions, is pulling all of reality into its maw, devouring the totality of time and space while bringing together people and places from throughout the universe. The Q Continuum pronounces that the end of everything has come, but Q refuses to meekly accept the end of all he has known. Defying the judgement of the Continuum, he sets out to derail doomsday -- at whatever the cost.

Q has been everywhere and done everything, but now he's in for a cosmic thrill ride beyond even his own astonishingly unlimited imagination. Old friends and adversaries wait in unexpected places, transcendent hazards abound, and the multiverse's most unlikely savior encounters wonders and dangers enough to render Q himself speechless. Almost.

Can even Q, reluctantly assisted by Jean Luc Picard, prevent the Universe As We Know It from literally going down the drain? I, Q is a wild and witty voyage through the secret soul of creation -- as only Q can tell it!Amazon.com Review
As fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation know, Q is the omnipotent extradimensional entity who so often causes whimsical havoc on the Starship Enterprise and elsewhere--for example, by helpfully introducing Captain Picard and his crew to the menacing Borg collective. Now this petulant demigod's first-person story is told by John de Lancie, the actor who plays Q, and Peter David, author of successful Star Trek novels. It's an irreverent romp through one bizarre scenario after another, as not only Star Trek's Federation universe but the entire multiverse of alternative timelines looks set to gurgle down a metaphysical plughole. Q's own wife and son vanish into the maelstrom, and his "Q Continuum" colleagues blither about calmly accepting apocalypse as a change from eternal tedium. Only Picard and Data the android accompany the questing Q, whose monstrous egotism and complaints that Picard never genuflects to him are barely affected when he loses his godlike powers and realizes that he may need mere humans. En route to the end of all things, they encounter other Federation characters, including Romulans, Klingons, Ferengi, and our captain's dread cyborg alter-ego, Locutus of Borg. After a fast-moving sequence of fights, wisecracks, insults, old jokes, and ultimate despair, the fate of the multiverse is ... but that would be telling. Frothy entertainment. --David Langford ...

4-0 out of 5 stars 249 pages of Q, and he never stops talking!
I find Star Trek's "Q" one of science fiction's most enjoyable characters. I, Q is an entire story told through the words and actions of Q himself! If you enjoy Q you will find this story very informative, however, if you dislike Q, you may want to skip this book. It is above all else 249 pages of Q, and he never stops talking!

1-0 out of 5 stars Q. doesn't believe in God, and he lets you know.....in almost every paragraph.
Q. is one of the most beloved characters on a show with nothing but beloved characters.So I got the book.Well it seems that Q. and his unique perspective is used simply as a cheap college expose on God and religion.The main characters are Q. Picard, and Data....but really its just Data and Q. So there's a bunch of philosophical expose on supreme being and robot, machine and man, creator and created.However, Q.'s usual smirks and condescending attitude has been hijacked so that the author can mock people that believe in God.I'm aware that Star Trek often tackles serious issues, but there's hardly a page where Q isn't repeating his beliefs on God, his hatred of God, the stupidity of God, and his disgust for God.I think the word God is used on almost every page.Literally!I'm not offended easily, but this seems like a hack author trying to pass off his community college 'anti-religion' thesis as a Star Trek novel.

5-0 out of 5 stars We need more Q
Defiantly one of the better Trek audio books; read by the man himself this should be a treat for casual fans and the hardcores alike.Picard, Q and Data must unite against forces that threaten to literally unmake the universe.A good way to kill three hours.

4-0 out of 5 stars An interesting and unique narrative
This book is a pretty good read, and if you like Q, it is a lot of fun. It's a narrative, and very different from most ST books - but it's "Q". who better to talk about him than himself.

Not Star Trek Cannon, but a very good read.

5-0 out of 5 stars Q gets an A!
When I saw the title of this book, "I, Q", I thought to myself, here we go again. Now, who would want to read such an obviously self-centered egomaniacally titled book about an alien being, who believes he is Omniscent.

Well, let me answer myself - people like me!

But to say I was pleased upon reading it would be a slight under-statement. As a matter of fact, the book achieves a kind of satisfaction in phantasmogria that I've not read in quite some time.

The End of Everything - that's how Q addresses the pivotal event in the book time and again, and that's what I'll stick to - is at hand. The End of Everything, not just the present, but of the past, of the future, of this universe and all the parallel universes that might be out there - Everything, is happening and no one seems to be able to do anything about it. No one knows why it's happening and whether this is It, or would there be some sort of cosmic reprieve from it at the last moment by some Deity intent on impressing their presence and importance on the living...

No one know. Chaos rules.

In the midst of all this, we have Q, who, while on an idyllic fishing holiday with his family (Yes! you heard me! his family!) "Lady Q" and "q" (so much for originality from the Great Q!), is suddenly being sucked into the Maelstorm that is pulling every living thing into a gigantic black hole. He somehow escapes the initial tug, but loses his family. As part of the deluge that is passing him, he is able to rescue Picard and Data from the whirlpool, and the three set out a mission to revert the End.

What follows has to be read to be believed. Rarely have I read something that uses imagination so vividly and so effectively. At times I got the feeling that this would be just another ST book, with Picard and Data in the thick of things, with Q along for the ride. Well, I am glad to say I couldn't have been far from the truth. The book truly takes you to places no human has ever gone before, and there are sub-plots that show that a lot of effort has gone into writing this story.

Look out for a guest appearance from Locutus of Borg!

The characters are well depicted and they successfully convey the mood they are all known for from the TV series / movies. Lancie doesn't intend you to think of new characters, but to delve deeper into what you already know of Q (and at times Picard and Data!). The plot seems really far-fetched, but the good part is - its refreshing original.

Darn good read!

I'm going to try and get my hands on the other Q books out there, notably among them "Q Squared", "Q-in-Law", and "Dark Mirror". ... Read more
