Reviews of Balance of Power (1995)
Review by johnafair (2007-10-18)
This is a really cool Star Trek novel and easily one of the funniest.
Basically, with a galaxy wide scientist dies his entire stock of inventions are put up for auction to the highest bidder, whoever they may be!
The command team of the Enterprise all find themselves working for various powers - Picard for the Klingons, Worf for the Federation and Wesley for a renegade bunch of Ferengi. Actually, Wesley's life becomes decidedly serious as an Academy colleague's invention threatens to destabilise the galactic economy.
