. . .it is philosophy and theology. (In fact, I actually lent this book to a classmate in a doctoral seminar on hermeneutics!)

1) Diane Duane knows the "Classic" Star Trek characters as well as anyone and better than most.

2) She knows the classic episodes better than most.

3) She has filled her novel with extremely believable, yet extremely unique aliens of all descriptions.

4) And in the context of a "we've got to save the universe" novel, explores philosophical questions of God, meaning, existence, etc. in a manner which will challenge the reader (regardless of the reader's theological views).

Ms. Duane is known among "Star Trek" circles primarily for her novels about Vulcans and Romulans -- and this is well and good. But the true devotee of "Classic" Star Trek will not want to miss this title.

Sounds like the philosophy and theology aspects of this book make it worth the read. Thanks for the recommendation!
