Back in the world of Star Trek: Picard, Una McCormack tells a story of what Raffi got up to between seasons one and two, when she’s sent on a mission to hunt for a missing war criminal.
I love how this novel turned out to be nothing like what I expected. It’s not you old fashioned monster of the week type adventure - but actually something deep and character-driven and using McCormack’s rich knowledge and love for the franchise to create something that feels true to so many characters.
It’s fascinating to see this novel because it does take us in a different, yet equally satisfying, direction from that taken with the previous novel continuity, and shows us an alternative view of what might have happened to a beloved character.
It’s a really great thought-provoking adventure.
