Over A Torrent Sea is without uestion the worst Star Trek novel I've read since returning to the books after David Mack's Destiny trilogy Set after the Borg Invasion of the Alpha uadrant the USS Titan led by Captain Riker resumes its deep space exploration and discovers an auatic world kind of like the one Voyager visited in the season 5 episode Thirty Days Except this oceanic world is filled with truely bizarre but intelligent alien creatures The crew sets out to try and communicate with the creatures but with little success When an asteroid threatens the waterworld the crew of Titan try desperately to warn the oblivious inhabitants of the coming dangerSounds exciting It definitely is not Author Christopher L Bennett commits the cardinal Star Trek sin Writing a Trek story that only nerds or Trekkies could understand or appreciate Undeniably well researched this book is filled with geographical and ecological science But unfortunately this has resulted in pages and pages of dry exposition filled with near incomprehensible scientific jargon and Trek's trademarked technobabble Bennett also introduces us to a nonhumanoid race that is truely alien and could never have been realised on the tv shows But again this results in lengthy eloborate descriptions of these extra terrestrial creatures that leaves you scratching your headMore importantly the story lacks tension or excitement and unfortunately the characterization and dialogue of the few Trek characters we know from the series Riker Troi and Tuvok is off the mark They sound or act nothing like the characters we've come to know and love After David Mack's Destiny trilogy pulled me back into the world Trek Lit Over A Torrent Sea almost made me regret that decision Best avoided

I sit here wondering if I will ever come across a Titan novel that will be a real thriller This one was among the weakest of the post Nemesis Trek novels I've yet readThe premise is uite intriguing The starship Titan and its grotesue zoo crew begin to survey a planet whose surface is entirely ocean I really like the concept of this I remember an Animated Series episode with a similar theme that captured my imagination The crew discovers an intelligent form of life that look like something between suids and whales and they call them suales Basically the plot centers around a few things First the efforts of a Selkie officer named Lavena who is originally from a water world herself to communicate with the suales Second the Titan's efforts to deflect an asteroid which just happens to be about to impact the planet; the efforts go haywire Third Deanna Troi is pregnant and about to pop and an over protective medical officer goes to extreme lengths to protect them in the midst of the crisisBut along the way I kept waiting for something to happen and it never really did The narrative is filled with scientific banter about the nature of the planet and its life but these got really old fast The dialogue between characters is atrocious The story jumps the shark pun intended in multiple places the aforementioned protective doctor taking the pregnant Troi to a warp incapable planet to use their hospital facilities for birth; Riker becoming malnourished after being stranded on the planet and being found lying in his own filth The interactions between Lavena and the suales seem forced and corny; the suales were perhaps the most shallow characters in the novel And perhaps worst of all it reads like a soap opera Riker has apparently had a fling with this Lavena person a long time ago and it leads to awkwardness and arguments that are just painful to read Two other characters Pazlar and Ra Havreii just read the book have an even painful treatment here I could probably go on a lot longer but I'll just stop here It just seems like Bennett was intrigued with the idea of an ocean planet and tried to create a plot to fit it And the result was a disjointed forced awkward narrative that was devoid of excitement Now I'm on to James Swallow's Synthesis and hopefully I will find something exciting there

Following the events of Star Trek Destiny Captain Riker and the crew of the Titan are sent back to the original mission exploring strange new worlds and seeking out new life and new civilizationsEarly on in Christopher L Bennett's Over a Torrent Sea the reasoning for sending Titan back out on its original mission instead of staying behind to rebuild the Federation is laid out in a fairly believable manner Then it's on to the planet of Droplet a world made of mostly of oceans with a uniue alien race living in the vast oceansAfter reading and enjoying several of Bennett's previous Trek novels I wish I could say this one was eually as enjoyable Unfortunately the story takes a bit of time to build up its momentum and even once things get rolling it's still a lot of your standard Trek novel cliches repackaged we're out of contact with the away team the ship and world are threatened there's internal crew conflict
