    One thought on “Dujonian's Hoard”

    1. This is the second book of the book event of Star Trek called The Captain's Table. This is little more solid story in comparison with the first book involving Kirk & Sulu. In here, at least you have Captain Picard and he doesn't have to "share" the pages with any other captain. The novel has some positive points like exploiting the archeology expertise and passion of Jean-Luc Picard into the plot. Even there is a little of romance here that it's always appreciated with Picard character, so i [...]

    2. I wanted to like this book so much. I thought the story had so much potential, but it just fell short in alot of ways for me. The Captain's Table setting & the first person narrative was a big adjustment. But I could have warmed up to that a lot easier if there hadn't have been so much input from the other captain's at the table. Having them all give their 2 cents between every chapter got to be a little to much for me & I definitely think less would've been more in that regard. However [...]

    3. As a general rule, I'm not a huge fan of Trek stories that separate the ship and crew. This is one of those stories for Picard and while I was skeptical at first, I'm glad I stuck with it. This fun tale reminded me a lot of the TNG episode Gambit with Picard under cover on an archaeological adventure through the galaxy. Well worth your time.

    4. Captain Picard find himself in that surreal tavern called the "Captain's Table," and is compelled to tell a story to the other patrons of the bar for the price of his first drink. Upon immediately entering this strange bar, he enounters Jean Lafette, complete with a sword. He settles down to a table, and starts his story, the price of the first round.Story: One of Star Fleet's ex-officers is missing. He went tnto an unexplored part of space to investigate the "Dujonian's Hoard." Jean Luc and Mr [...]

    5. In book two of The Captain's Table mini-series, we get to hear Captain Picard weave a tale of high adventure and romance for the other captains at the bar. This is much better than the first book. It's a fairly solid story and it is told the way you would think a story told by the legendary Jean-Luc would be told. The voice is perfect, but it actually feels like it's being told by Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard rather than just Picard if that makes sense. It's kind of like reading A Christma [...]

    6. Far better than the previous Captain's Table novel, this story is at least entertaining and flows well. The journey through the story was better than its destination, as the entire impetus for the plot kind of withers out as secondary, unimportant. Friedman makes better use of the series concept, writing in a first person that actually does sound like Picard and keeping the reader's interest in the story through the cutaways to the fellow captain's listening to Picard's story in the bar. Still, [...]

    7. I love the Captain's Table theme. The bar lost in time and a series of excellent, first person stories told AS stories.Picard's adventure is exciting - but a little weak:The strategies and Picard's unlikely successes are a bit of a stretch. They just scream "plot device". That's OK though, the story is still pretty gripping.And the love story is lacking, at best. It seems sort of like it was added after the rest of the story was already fleshed out. Like it was the editor's idea or something. [...]

    8. Friedman is one of my favorite authors and he did not disappoint with Dujonian's Hoard. I felt this was a decent TNG book, told in Picard's words about an mission he had with Worf. I enjoyed the second book of the series more so than the first, although the first seemed to have a little more action.

    9. Captain Picard, in a magic bar, telling the story of the time he and Worf went on a pirate adventure chasing a legendary treasure. The story itself was alright, but the constant interrupts by the people listening to the story got old fast.

    10. I was ready for some Star Trek and this did not disappoint me. Action, pirates, romance, and Jean Luc Picard. What could go wrong?

    11. If you like a pirate treasure theme adventure then you'll enjoy this book. Told in the classic campfire/tall tale method that will leave you guessing as to the veracity of Picard's story.
