Crusher, to whom Picard was recently married, does want children, and the topic is a point of contention with the couple.
Greater than the Sum
Hugh leads "The Liberated," former members of the Borg Collective who have broken away and live as individuals. David Mack, for example, has become known for huge, sweeping epics. Una McCormack delivers stunning political and cultural commentary.
As for Christopher L. Rather, it is an amalgam of the ideas of hundreds of writers, all contributing to a vast tapestry that, at times, doesn't hold together as well as we would like it to.

Christopher L. A number of inconsistencies have cropped up over the years in the way the Borg have been portrayed. In The Next Generation , the Borg ships were said to have been completely decentralized, with major systems distributed evenly throughout the vessels. However, in Voyager , the crew is often able to target specific systems on a Borg vessel, such as the shield generators or weapon systems. Bennett is able to provide a plausible reason for these differences in a way I had never considered, causing this seeming contradiction to make some semblance of sense.

Similarly, the differences in the nature of Borg we have seen over the years androgynous unassimilated drones vs. Christopher Bennett clearly shares in that delight, and he has become quite good at it!

Bennett is able to reconcile the various inconsistencies that have cropped up over the years in how the Borg have been portrayed in Star Trek. Ultimately, the final showdown with the Borg involves an heroic sacrifice by Hugh, who gives his life to deliver a killing blow to the Borg: a "multi-vector agent" MVA that combines a number of attacks on the Collective into a nano-virus that is designed to incapacitate the Borg. The attack proves successful, and it seems that the Federation now has an effective tool with which to combat the Collective.
However, at the end of the novel, the Borg begin attacking the Federation en masse. In one of the first engagements, Lieutenant Leybenzon, former security chief of the Enterprise , loses the weapon to the Borg in an act of extreme hubris, giving the Collective the ability to adapt to the weapon before it can be used to defend the Federation.
Final thoughts: I really enjoyed Greater Than the Sum.
Bennett gives us a unique take on the Borg, which is difficult at this point, and also sets the story up nicely for the apocalyptic events of Star Trek: Destiny. Top marks for this novel from me; Bennett delivers not only an action-filled thriller, but a perfect character-driven story that gets to heart of what it means to be human. What more can you ask for from Star Trek? Labels: Christopher L. For the sake of humanity, the Borg cannot gain access to quantum slipstream technology.
