Imzadi by Peter DavidSeveral times while reading Imzadi I was completely surprised by where Peter David took the story Unpredictable and always interesting Imzadi is arguably one of the best Star Trek novels out there In a recent edition of his article Ten For Ward at StarTrekcom author Dayton Ward included Imzadi on his list of Trek novels for the new Star Trek reader Imzadi was the recommendation of his fellow author David Mack who said that its ending is also one of the best I ve ever read in a Star Trek novel I find myself in complete agreement with this statement Imzadi is a must read for any Trek fanFull review 25Despite having seen I think every episide of TNG when it was on I never got into reading the various novels Thgouh I on t really Dheu është flori do a lot of expanded universe stuff as a general rule But this was picked for a group BotM so Iecided to give it a goI will say that it started well enough espite the fact that I sort of cottoned on to the probably plot in the first few pages But I liked seeing some of the alternate future with Captain Crusher oing the Picard tug at his jacket and Commodore I think Data and an embittered Riker never able to get over a Troi who วิมานโจร died in the halcyonays of a beardless face IckBut once we started The Roman Forum down memory lane into the budding TroiRiker pairing I was less interested Actually I sort of hated this partFor one Riker was a womanizingouchebag I mean I know he was sort of the Kirk of TNG and all but in this it s pre enlightenment and he s just a cocksure arrogant smarmy jerkTroi on the other hand is a utiful mama s girl and ye gods since when was Lwaxana such a harpy for tradition and shit who is all cerebral and emotional and stufShe first spurns Riker s purely animalistic attention but really she was flattered and just needed to let her guard own and be taken by the big hairy manbarfA friend called this book a starleuin and yeah it s got so many bad romance novel cliches I Dragonhaven don t even know where to beginBut finally blessedly we get past that shit and into some time travelling shenanigans and things kinda pick up at that point though Iid sort of start thinking towards the end that if they threw in one random plot I might hafta screamFor all its faults of which characters that seemed off isn t even the half of it I Mr Peters' Connections did find parts of it pretty compelling read especially when shit was goingownIf we had foregone the whole horrible starleuin bit in the middle I probably would ve liked it a shit ton though I m almost embarrassed to give this a Star Trek novel five stars but I am compelled to go back every few years and read it so I guess it must be pretty good It might be because I am something of a romantic and whenever I start to feel the need for a good love story this is the one I pick up I loved The Next Generation it was my favorite Trek but I ve never read any other novels in this genre Every time I ve tried I have found that the author s ideas about extrapolating the characters personalities oes not fit with my own ideas and I just get annoyed For some reason this one idn t bother me perhaps because the story line was so good that I Nkomo The Story of My Life didn t care One little flaw in this book is the obvious reference here and there to the show It s almost like someone an editor said to the author yeah the story s great but you need to go back and make it clear that you actually watched the show There s an idiotic passage in which the grown Wesley Crusher admits to having an adolescent crush on Deanna Troi because of the gray jumpsuit she wore in the early seasons of the show Please We all know that poor Marina Sirtis looked like a cow in that horror My favorite Trek novel ever and of course made me aie hard Imzadi shipper I have it in paperbackand hardcoverand audiobook Back in 1996 this was No3 of year out of 145 books but was my Top book of the yearSet around the most important thing in Star Trek History The Guardian of Forever the Joan Collins Star Trek Emie award An Imzardi is beloved in Beltazod Diana Troy Riker lovers across time even wrong time I remember watching Star Trek with my ad when I was a kid It would come on after school and I loved it "the adventures the crazy escapes the close calls "adventures the crazy escapes the close calls was good stuff I had SUCH a crush on Will Riker when I was younger Not baby faced Riker but mature bearded Riker Man I loved him And to this ay I love a man with facial hair But that s beside the point LOLAs much as I loved the show I m not much of a tie in fiction reader I love Star Wars too yeah I swing both ways and but struggled through the tie in Star Wars too yeah I swing both ways and but struggled through the tie in collection I read And I read a Firefly tie in and thought it was OK I haven t really tried any others though Maybe I will someday but it s generally not a genre that calls my name So a friend chose this book for a group of us to read and I enjoyed it I idn t love it and I think that there were times when things felt a little much especially the romance but overall I id like it I think that the characters were true to the characters that I ve loved from the show and I enjoyed seeing them here The story was a little complex than I expected in all honesty and jumped around uite a bit It was a bit hard to follow considering that the ebook formatting was atrocious and there weren t line or chapter or section breaks where they should have been The last 50 pages of the book were by far my favorite I liked the humor here and the way that things came together It was a little too perfect but enjoyable I Tall StrangerLast Stand at Papago Wells d recommend it I ve tried to review this book a couple of times now and each time I ve had trouble I m caught between my nostalgic self and my analytical self or if you prefer childhood and adulthood Ultimately I think I have to breakown what has changed about me as a person and what hasn t to really Silks define what it is about Imzadi that troubled me I became a Star Trek The Next Generation fan sometime in 1991 when my Dad turned on the TV and I watched part of the summer repeat of Data s Day My memory and I have no reason why I be wrong about this is that the first scene I saw was the one where Dr Crusher taught Data how to 33 dance For the next two years I lived ate and breathed Next Gen to the point my mother put her footown and banned it from our home And although I never made a full return to those heady early Cavalier A Tale of Chivalry Passion and Great Houses days I ve been a fan of the various Star Trek series ever since Recently I ve been going through what I can onlyescribe as Extreme Stress which has nothing to Loveknot Welcome to Tyler do with this review except that it forms. Years before they served together on board the USS Enterprise Commander William Riker and ship's counselor Deanna Troi had a tempestuous love affair on her home planet of Betazed Now their passions have cooled and they serve together as friends Yet th. Comedy Trombone wah waaaah moment but we are invited towell longingly over the female lead s body again and again and again We are subject to multiple moments of no means yes including the big romantic breakthrough moment a particularly pernicious trope that probably One Step Further dates this book harder than anything else By the time Deanna has been abducted by an alien terrorist who promises to kill her not rape her and she expresses her relief I ve just about had it with Imzadi I know that Troi was never given much of a character on television and I completely understand that in many ways Imzadi functions as a romance novel where you expect Meet Cutes moments of big swelling music and totally unrealistic powerynamics That The Dreamers doesn t mean I have to like it though and it certainlyoesn t make it right They say you can never go home again and no I will never be ten years old again in this lifetime I can never look at these characterizations as innocently as I once id I can no longer fail to have expectations of professional writers The truth is though I still like Star Trek as much as I ever id I like its optimism I like its ability to tell incredibly human stories through the veil of science fiction and fantasy I still like Picard s totally upright morality I like Data s Girl on a Motorcycle deadpan humor and I like the way Riker straddles a chair backward like a little kid I still find a lot of comfort in that universe so it troubles me a bit that I ve come to a place where I can t just turn my brain off and relax I can t though I can t In a universe that s supposed to be a utopia where all people are eual it s impossible to get around the fact this novel seems to have been written for a small single track andare I say it adolescent audience I m just not part of that club any 40 stars Nobody La suma de los días does Star Trek better than Peter David and this is another superb example It is what you get when you take a richlyefined universe star trek and pair it with a writer with true chops I had two reasons to look forward to this book the author had been recommended to me and I yearned to learn about the origins of the RikerTroi romance The author s nonlinear storytelling and the time travel elements of the book were creative enough to keep me reading until the last page He has skill at crafting plot and action The relationship as written here however fell completely flat for me Their story was filled from start to finish with bad cliches current gender stereotypes masuerading as insights and just plain uninteresting characterization It s unfortunate that the author s creativity Traces didn t extend into this very important TNG bond My personal favorite Star Trek novel of all time And I believe that if I have to choose only one novel of all that I have read this one has to be my favorite novel at all too SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY This book has it allrama action romance mystery science fiction time travel alternate realities etcwell you couldn t ask for When I read the synopsis in the back cover back then in 1993 while judging if I C d buy the book or not I got amazedAnd when I read the book I just love it I am uite glad that I was able to get the book in its first printing with the extraetails on the cover with surface effects since nowadays they only reprint the story as a combo book under the title of Imzadi Forever uniting the first novel with its seuel and honestly it s sad that Imzadi "II wasn t nearly that good as The First Novel Just To first novel just to it kindly "wasn t nearly that good as the first novel just to treat it kindly my best advice is The Greek's Convenient Wife Harleuin Presents don t read the seuelHowever I honestly think that it wasn t the fault of Peter David the author of both novels but it was the fault of the writers of the TV show that they mess with a perfect couple like Riker and Troi and to put Worf in the formula I have nothing against Worf but he is not the soulmate of Deanna Imzadi is perfection made into letters on paper A wonderful example of an exciting sci fi novel merging with a true romance book creating an extraordinary storyWithout aoubt in my humble opinion I think that this novel is the most solid Star Trek The Next Generation novel and also the best book of the Star Trek franchise MERGING GENERATIONS It s incredible the way how Peter David could take a recognizable element from Star Trek The Original Series like the Guardian of Forever which is part of the best TV episode The City at the Edge of Forever to make it again as a key factor in a The Next Generation novel This is not so rare in various of the best novels by Peter David since he used too elements from classic episodes of The Original Series in other The Next Generation novels such as Vendetta and SuaredTALE AS OLD AS TIMEThe story is set in three ifferent time periodsThe Past Telling how William T Riker and Deanna Troi met for the first time several years before of their re encounter in the USS Enterprise D while Riker was still a young lieutenant and assigned to a post in the planet Betazed the homeworld of DeannaMaking a bond beyond friendship and love a bond beyond time and space a bond beyond reality and alternatives a bond so strong and uniue that only can be named with a Betazoid word ImzadiThe Present Exposing how wrong what it was supposed to be an easy iplomatic mission causing the shocking Missing Assumed Dead death ofCounselor Deanna TroiThe Future Where William T Riker is now an admiral but hardly his career is considered a success while commanding aistant space station without any strategic importance He is now a embittered old man still suffering The Mask of the Enchantress / The Secret Woman due theeath of the Love Of His Life In of his life In heart he knows that Deanna s I've been thinking...: reflections, prayers, and meditations for a meaningful life death was wrong he knows in very soul that thateath shouldn t happenedAnd he will go to the Guardian of Forever to change the past and the Temporal Prime Directive can go to hellHowever Commodore Data now commanding officer of the USS Enterprise F will begin a chase against his former comrade since his Bonded by Sin duty is to protect the integrity of the timeline even if that means that Deanna Troi should remainead in the pastT IS FORA curious trivia in this novel was that it was supposed to explain the meaning of the T in William T Riker and back then could be considered a spoiler but after the TV episode Second Chances now is not a spoiler any but a non canon curiousityThe T was supposed to be for Thelonious that you may think as something odd but it wasn t a bad idea then since the concept was to make something similar to the T in James T Kirk that it s for Tiberius in that way both characters of Hezbollah different generations would have Dies But hereath is only the beginning of the adventure for Commander Riker an adventure that will take him across time pit him against one of his closest friends and force him to choose between Starfleet's strictest rule and the one he calls Imzadi. ,
The foundation of why I read Imzadi in the first place In the last few months I ve found myself retreating into a nostalgic place wanting mostly to engage with the books films and television that charmed me when I was nine or ten years old Comfort food as mental Honored Guest Stories defense you might call it To that end Iecided to revisit The Next Generation realizing that I probably hadn t watched a full episode in close to fifteen years What I found is that the series has Orcs et Gobelins dated uite hard there s no moralizing uite like late 80s moralizing but at the same time it retains an appealing optimism and warm familial uality that made me want to keep watching And so Iid Eventually I came to a place where I wouldn t be able to access my new HD Blu Rays for at least a couple of weeks and ultimately became three months so I Florence of Arabia decided to try a Next Generation novel instead I read severalozen of these when I was about ten years old although I remember very few specifics The one thing that came to the fore of my memory was that Peter David s books were always the best Suared I recalled as a Guns of the Timberlands definite favorite along with Vendetta I searched for those at the local library but emerged instead with Imzadi a book Iefinitely remember seeing but which I have no actual recollection of ever reading not as if that means anything almost 25 years later I checked the book out I read it and I ve been conflicted ever sinceI know this is one of the most lauded Star Trek novels of all time I know I have friends who adore itI really really really couldn t wait for this book to endLet s be clear the initial section set in an alternate future where Admiral William Riker has gone grey as a High Five desk jockey is pretty appealing stuff David sets a mystery in motion pretty uickly and there s at least one nice piece of total misdirection when Riker is summoned back to a Betazoideathbed Despite a little frustration with the plot evice of the Guardian of Forever seriously fandom has run that thing into the ground I got a pretty good momentum with that initial uarter or so of the book and I was looking forward to what came nextUnfortunately things took a significant turnThere are really three problems with Imzadi for me The first which I ve already hinted at is my complete exhaustion with fanservice Admittedly this is the kind of stuff I would have found really cool at ten years old Wow it s the Guardian of Forever Wow they mentioned Kirk Wow they replayed a scene from Encounter at Farpoint from a ifferent perspective As an adult I find it tiring in the extreme You can pull this sort of thing off every once in a blue moon usually for some sort of special anniversary episode or story but otherwise the insistence of fan writers on tying every last little piece of their universe together in a connect the Gramm.it : Grammatica italiana per stranieri con esercizi e testi autentici dots picture only makes it feel smaller and less realistic A book like Imzadi only exists to tell a backstory we would never see on television but that only highlights the obvious issue I want to read something new not a series of cutesy little touchstone references My second problem with Imzadi is technical and that s simply that Davidoesn t write good prose He writes extremely casual prose chalk full of little choppy sentences beginning And and But His similes feel like the sort of thing you get from adolescent poetry I no longer have the book in front of me but I m fairly sure at one point he compares Riker s anger to the rage of a fiery volcano or something very similar This one s of a personal problem for me because I have a egree In English And I Teach English and I teach it s just impossible for me not to notice this stuff now I m all for stylistic breaking of rules certainly but avid s prose never comes across but David s prose never comes across way I have the suspicion it s the writing of someone who s simply better skilled at the short stabby Lives of Roman Christian Women (Penguin Classics) dialogue of a comic book panel than the long form of the novel paragraph at least at this particular point in his career So far it could easily be argued that the real problem is with me not the material I grew up the cardinal sin of anyone looking to suspend theirisbelief and enjoy the ride If these were the only issues I had with Imzadi though I The Tao of Bill Murray Real Life Stories of Joy Enlightenment and Party Crashing d probably chalk it up to taste and feel a little generous Unfortunately there s another problem I have with the book and it s a blinder in fact it takes me out of the territory of irritated and straight into repulsed Simply put the sexual politics of Imzadi are awful Obviously if I read this book when I was ten or frankly if I even read it at twenty that concern would have passed right over my head In my thirties though it s hard to pat something like this on the metaphorical cheek and let it pass with a gentle That s okay because it s not Star Trek particularly in its earlier iterations has never exactly been a bastion of sexual euality yeah I can already hear a bunch of male fans mooing their offended Badlands disagreement In the original series though it s a sign of the times you can t really find an American TV show thatoesn t play to the idea of women as soft focus conuests or exotic hippy children By Next Gen it s a little istressing it seems obvious now that Gene Roddenberry based both James Kirk and William Riker on his idealized ladykiller image of himself and as nice a guy as Jonathan Frakes seems to be that sometimes comes overunpleasantlyin The Next Generation All Frakes has to o is cock an eyebrow and leer smarmily to get a girl in his arms and although the writers find ways to send that up on occasion it can still make for uncomfortable viewing in 2016 Imzadi plays straight into that weaknessIf Peter David were here to Bloud Count defend his novel he would probably say that he tries toepict Riker as a sexually confident young man who has to be taught a better kind of love by the woman estined to be his beloved Indeed much of the center section of the story is taken up with a young Deanna Troi trying to teach Riker to get outside of his own head or well his own pants Unfortunately David perhaps in the expectation that the reader will agree seems to glorify in the idea of Riker as a headstrong young lech even "as he pays lip service to the idea that it s wrong This is a book where men make bets on "he pays lip service to the idea that it s wrong This is a book where men make bets on they can get women into the sack and Riker lies and allows himself to lose because he s become a Sensitive New Age Guy This is a book where the woman is a literal virgin of course and the man only feels like a virgin This is a book where the male lead is made to strip in public in E memories of that time linger and Riker and Troi remain Imzadi a powerful Betazoid term that escribes the enduring bond they still share During Bloodraven delicate negotiations with an aggressive race called the Sindareen Deanna Troi mysteriously falls illand.
