Review : The plot had some potential, but IMHO the author fumbled the ball. An isolationist colony + an unknown alien technology = Instant conflict! The Enterprise just happens to be there on a separate (but very derived) reason when the alien is discovered and investigates. Unfortunately that's where the implausible alien technology is introduced, and things begin to break down. Either the author forgot a few things, or he wanted the readers to conveniently forget certain elements. At one point sensors can't scan within an alien craft, then they can; communications don't work, then they do... Still a decent overall book, but could have been much better.
