    1. One of the best Star Trek novels ever! An instant classic!READER’S LOGThe best way to escape a bad day was to start the next.I have been lucky to read previous material by John Jackson Miller, the author, as he put it, published in another galaxy, that I enjoyed a lot, and I was able too to read his first step into the Final Frontier with a short story published some months ago that I think it was excellent.And now, I am totally astonished about this great book that it deserves to be side-by-s [...]


    2. There wasn't really a whole lot of meat to this book; it wasn't one of those Star Trek books that makes you think, or that is so riveting that you'll rave about it to anyone who will listen. But it was definitely a fun read if you enjoy the genre, and if you don't, why are you reading this review? The characters were handled well, the pacing was good, the plot more or less held together (no worse than most, anyway) an in general, it was just a good, solid example of the genre.


    3. I didn't enjoyed this nearly as much as I wanted to. I liked having the combination of Ezri and Riker working together and as opponents, but I really struggled. I found the descriptions heavy and often unnecessary, and the interaction between the characters to be very stiff and robotic.


    4. 4.5 stars. I first found this a little worrying, at least based on what was happening to one of my favourite characters in the canon, but when the big bad was revealed, I was relieved, since it meant things would work out. The action did pick up nicely, and thinking through the consequences was fascinating, and I loved how the author managed to tie in multiple episodes from the TV series as well as into the greater tapestry that has grown in the book relaunch.


    5. Although the story is good, I had a very hard time getting into this book. It took me forever to finish because I would read a couple chapters, then put it down to read something else, them come back to it only to put it down again after a few more chapters. After I got through the first half of the book, I started to like it and was able to finish it rather quickly. I'm not sure if it was the author's writing style or just that the first half of the story was rather confusing. 8 different speci [...]


    6. I struggled to click with the writing style a little. Clicking combadges stuck out (you don’t click them. Really) and it was evident that Miller is new to the genre.Still, for the first time Post nemesis, I felt as if I was reading something I’d like to see onscreen, the sort of story that would’ve fit well into a feature-length episode. I enjoyed it for that, even if the story was already done on television and little new was added. It was a solid, episodic adventure for the continuing vo [...]


    7. A fun and exciting entry into the post-The Fall continuity of Trek novels. It was great to see the continuity touchstones that John Jackson Miller used to craft this story, including the reintroduction of a species from TNG that I've always been curious about (I won't include that particular spoiler here as I feel it guts the story to know it in advance). A definite improvement over Miller's previous foray into Trek literature, and hopefully a portent of many more great stories to come!Full revi [...]


    8. This was a pretty good read. As a nitpicker I have to give a shout out to the editor who let Wolf 357 pass as the location of the battle against The Borg Cube. Seriously how many real Star Trek fans don't know it was Wolf 359?


    9. Wieder eine omnipotente Macht in Star Trek UniversumAdmiral Riker wird zu einer Konferenz zwischen der Förderation und dem Typhon Pact zu der "Fernen Botschaft" gerufen. Als er sie betritt kommt er und die anderen Konferenzteilnehmer verändert wieder heraus, sie beschaffen sich schnelle Raumschiffe (Riker ruft die Aventine, das schnellste Schiff der Sternenflotte under Captain Dax, und starten einen Kriegszug gegen verschiedene Kommunikationseinrichtungen der Sternenflotte und ihrer Mitglieder [...]


    10. Confusing, but in a good way!There's a mystery, with Riker and seven other diplomats going off the rails. Why? How? Is it real, is her crazy or And who is making him review it all?I was satisfied with the solution, even more when I realized the backstory came from TV episodes, not the novels as I assumed.


    11. 4.5 starsA thoroughly enjoyable story. I really enjoy a good crossover between series.The only thing I didn't like were the few chapter fom the romulan's pov, because I just didn't care.




    12. This is a nice little "Star Trek" story that the fans should enjoy. The conflict, pacing and resolution are just as would happen on a typical television episode.



    13. A fun story that works well as a standalone adventure. A great Star Trek style mystery that’s probably in my top ten Trek novels.


    14. I’ve always enjoyed Star Trek, but I’ve never gotten into the books. For me, Star Trek was first and foremost a TV show that also had some movies. However, I do love a good book, and as a fan of John Jackson Miller’s previous work, I wanted to give Takedown a try. It was a bit of a gamble, but in this case it paid off. From space battles to squabbling diplomats and unraveling mysteries, Takedown is a lot of fun.“Let me get this straight. You’re telling me all this may have begun at a p [...]


    15. 4 Stars. Read a library copy.Good Next Gen Star trek book. Knowing some of what happened in recent books helps, but is not as necessary as remembering a season 4 episode called "The Nth Degree".Enjoyed it lots.


    16. Zunächst hat es etwas langweilig angefangen. Erst nach ca. einem Drittel konnte mich die Geschichte fesseln, als Picard ins Spiel eingestiegen ist und ich als Leser, zusammen mit ihm, hinter das komische Verhalten von Riker gekommen bin. Ab da hat es richtig Spaß gemacht.Vollständige Rezension auf meinem Blog unter buchvogel/2017/03/

    18. The newest edition to the Star Trek Relaunch universe, Star Trek: Takedown, by John Jackson Miller, is an exciting story that features the crews of the USS Enterprise, the USS Titan, and the USS Aventine.While the crews of the Aventine, Titan, and Enterprise have featured prominently in the Relaunch universe, the TNG and Aventine crews really share the spotlight here. Titan's crew, will return in Star Trek: Sight Unseen, written by Star Trek Titan's regular author, James Swallow, due out in Octo [...]


    19. The debut Star Trek novel for John Jackson Miller, "Takedown", starts off with a simple idea & turns it into one of the better uses of a race not seen in a very long time. The book for the most part is a frame story where we find Admiral Riker in some sort of room with Simus (whose identity isn't revealed until nearly the very end) witnessing the destruction of the Corvus Beacon a remote communications array something he ordered the Aventine to do. From there, we travel 3 weeks into the past [...]


    20. My first Star Trek novel. Miller does a credible job of translating this particular cinematic/telly franchise. Granted it is more socio-politically nuanced than Star Wars, which is probably why it is a much better novel than his own A New Dawn.The characters are all credible and fairly well-rounded; I was quite surprised at the amount of humour as well and the sub-textual critique of the bureaucracy (and hence inflexibility) of Starfleet.What I found particularly intriguing is how Miller uses th [...]


    21. I really enjoyed this book. It is the first Star Trek book I've read, even though I've been a fan since a young age. For some reason I never got around to trying one. Well, I'm glad i did as this was highly entertaining.Being amongst old favourites of the TV shows was a real treat. I could hear their voices all through the story, particularly Riker's, which has always been a strong one. Only occasionally did I feel a character was saying something in a way that possibly didn't match that voice I [...]


    22. Another winner! I don't like a predictable book, and this was not predictable. I couldn't figure out what was going on; why was Admiral Riker on the Aventine instead of Titan, what was his mission, why would Captain Picard feel the need to stop him?Once again I was treated to a blast from the Star Trek NG past, and it was a pleasure to see this alien race again after so long. I won't give away which race, but the chaos they caused in pursuit of their own goals had the potential to throw the Khit [...]


    23. A secretive meeting for ambassadors of various aliens sets up a dynamic, destructive and ingenious plot of which Riker find himself in the middle. Taking the reins from a previously aired installment of The Next Generation and exploring the aftermath of contact with the Enterprise, John Jackson Miller writes an in-depth look at some of the consequences. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this author.


    24. Meh. To be fair, I think any book I read after the last book (Dreamers Pool by Juliet Marillier) would seem meh at best. If it wasn't the book that came after the shining awesomeness of that book, I probably would have liked this better. Maybe. I like Riker a whole lot and it was nice to see him in a non-Titan book. That said, this was fairly slow. Not my favorite Trek novel ever. Not bad but not great.


    25. Not bad. I like it when a Star Trek book takes a single episode from the series, looks at it and goes 'OK, THEN what?' Which this novel does fairly well. It also introduces a service to Star Fleet that makes a lot of sense if you think about it.Sorry for the vagueness but it's hard not to spoil this *lol*


    26. I have watched every ST series, and attended cons. This novel was fairly entertaining, although I have a major negative reaction to characters being taken over or copied. Reading about Riker as an admiral so that he ranks over Pickard is interesting. You definitely need quite a bit of background to understand all the connections among the aliens. I enjoyed connecting with Worf, Pickard, etc.


    27. The best way to escape a bad day is to start the next.A good politician always knew which way the winds were blowing, a better politician made the weather himself.A weapon unfired is no weapon at all.Don't assume that present conditions are permanent. Your future may be different than you imagine.
