||A book about a mission on a planet, where everyone wears masks which mark their social function and prestige in a mediival-ages society. It takes place during season of TNG when Pulaski was the doc. The Enterprise investigates secretly on that planet in order to determine how Ferengis try to make profit there in a bad way. The book has some phantasy-aspects like Lord-of-the Rings in it. It was written in a time, when TNG wasn't yet very well defined and so made use of the opportunity to interprete the people a bit. Not superb but absolutly well to enjoy it while taking a look back seen from todays position. A look into the "childhood-days" of TNG.
