Book Review: ‘Rogue Elements’ by John Jackson Miller

Star Trek Picard: Rogue Elements is the third novel in the Picard series. It was written by John Jackson Miller and was released in August 2021.

After nearly 6 years, John Jackson Miller returns with his third hardcover novel…although this time, it is his first hardcover for Star Trek. As such, Miller has made this quite the full story, tapping the full book out over 400 pages, a new longest novel for the illustrious author. 

I had a really difficult time with the Picard series. As such, I was nervous that I wouldn’t like the books involved. However, if the Discovery novels have taught me anything, it is not to judge a book by it’s tie-in property. Earlier this year I read and absolutely loved The Last Best Hope. When it was announced that John Jackson Miller was going to be writing a Picard novel, I knew I had to read it.

New Reveal: ‘Crimson Reign’

Qi’ra is making a return in a new comic series and IGN has the details. Five issues, will debut in November, and will be written by Charles Soule. It will focus on Crimson Dawn and Qi’ra.

According to Soule, “While Qi’ra plays a huge part in War of the Bounty Hunters, that event is really a Boba Fett story. I have a bigger story I’m going to tell with Qi’ra and Crimson Dawn, and it’s all connected to the reasons she kicked things off in War of the Bounty Hunters in the first place. You’ll learn more about that in the closing pages of War of the Bounty Hunters #5, out in October, and I think fans have no idea how exciting and new this story will feel.”

Book Review: ‘A Time to Harvest’ by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore

Star Trek: A Time to Harvest is the fourth book in the A Time to Series, produced by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster, written by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, and released in May of 2004.

This book is a significant step up for Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. I thought their previous book A Time to Sow was incredibly dull and boring. This book started out that way, and I was worried it would have the same issues. However, the second half of this book was amazing, and thus elevated the whole story for me. 

This book really doesn’t have much of a singular focus like the previous novels have. Dr. Crusher and Captain Picard probably have the most viewpoint chapters in the book, but certainly every main character had enough viewpoint chapters to make the book feel balanced. This book felt like a longer version of a Next Generation episode than the previous books had.
