INVOLUTION 11 features

Dixon Hill rides again--the rails, that is. Riker's birthday present to Picard is a hoIodeck adventure aboard a train where he's joined by his favorite redheaded doctor. Oh, what they can do with handcuffs! "On the Right Track" by N. B. Thayer.

Throughout his life, Jean-Luc Picard has lived with the Imowledge that nothing he ever did could please his father. In D. J. Nicholson's "Fathers and Sons," a young Jean-Luc Picard comes to understand at least a little of what his father expected of him.

After the destruction of the Enterprise-D, Picard takes a little R&R on "Historia," a planet with a peaceful, Earth-like environment. Yet peace is hardly what he finds; sadness and despair fill his days, and nightmares plague his nights--until Megan. By Marilee Rafferty.

When Crusher is injured during treaty negotiations gone bad, Picard discovers "Unexpected Insights" into his relationship with Beverly Crusher. By Sally Bradstreet.

After his trip through time in "All Good Things...", Picard wonders about his future. Is he destined to spend it sick and alone as Q predicted, or with Beverly by his side? "Endings" by Anne-Marie Flowers.

When Jean-Luc is given a copy of his unauthorized biography, long-ago but never forgotten memories of life on board his first command are dredged up. Set after Star Trek: Generations, Miranda Greene takes us on Picard's bittersweet journey in "Stargazer Days."

What would life have been for Jean-Luc Picard if Q had left him "A Dreary Man in a Tedious Job" (from the episode "Tapestry")? How would Starfleet's top captain take to life in the lower levels? Find out as Margaret Basta gives Picard a life far removed from the one he's come to know (and love?).
