When I first saw "Resistance" on the shelves, I snapped it up right away. I miss TNG, and any chance to continue their adventures appealed to me greatly. I followed it up with "Death in Winter", "Q&A", "Before Dishonor", and "Greater than the Sum", and I quickly lost interest.  It seemed like the authors spent more time deciding who was going to sit where on the bridge in the absence of Data, Riker, and Troi, and introducing a parade less interesting, non-canon characters to replace them, than following the lives of the characters I know and love. In "Greater than the Sum", it's a full 90 pages before we even SEE Geordi, meanwhile we follow the author's new character for the bulk of the book.  I fell a bit behind around the time of the Destiny trilogy, and when I learned they were going to stick us with a Borg origin story and then get rid of the Collective, I decided that was enough.


 


My question is, have things improved in this series? Is the focus back on Picard and the original TNG crew, or are we still following a parade of one-character trait nobodies? Are the post-Destiny books any good?
