Star Trek: A Time to be Born by John Vornholt

Star Trek: A Time to be Born
John Vornholt
2004, Pocket Books, New York

The Enterprise is sent to help with the retrieval mission at the Rashanar Battle site where derelict ships float around a gravity sink. They destroy a dangerous mimic vessel setting off a chain of events which threatens Captain Picard's future in Starfleet.

I read it but didn't enjoy it. The writing is poor and the storyline is mediocre. A few of the ideas are interesting but mostly it felt like covered territory. And what is with Trek authors doing terrible metaphors??!! There were some doozies in this one.
