I first read this classic Trek novel when I was sixteen, and at the time it knocked me off my feet as one of the greatest NextGen stories ever told. Now I'm twice as old and happy to report that Imzadi by Peter David has aged well over the years. Many of the show references are dated to the mid-1990's Trek universe, but that matters little because of the specific trekkie fan base this story is for. Plus the subsequent expanded universe has done very little to diminish the story. The Next Generation TV show remains a cultural milestone, which lends this book relevance by extension.

This is the backstory of Riker and Troi's relationship, and I was surprised by how short their pre-Enterprise encounter was. From the show's point of view, their history felt significant, as if they'd known each other for years. Though the more I think about it, a short and passionate affair makes the most sense as Peter David writes it.

The third act of the novel seals the deal for this being one of the best in the Star Trek lexicon. So many great Trek elements are fused together for an unforgettable climax.
