As the Federation recovers from the devastating events of Star Trek: Destiny, Captain William Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan are ordered to resume their deep-space assignment, reaffirming Starfleet's core principles of peaceful exploration. But even far from home on a mission of hope, the scars of the recent cataclysm remain with them as they slowly rebuild their lives. The planet Droplet is a world made mostly of water without a speck of solid ground. Life should not exist here, yet it thrives. Aili Lavena, Titan's aquatic navigator, spearheads the exploration of this mysterious world, facing the dangers of the vast, wild ocean. When one native species proves to be sentient, Lavena finds herself immersed in a delicate contact situation, and Riker is called away from Deanna Troi at a critical moment in their marriage. But when good intentions bring calamity, Lavena and Riker are cut off from the crew and feared lost. Troi must face a life-changing event without her husband, while the crew must brave the crushing pressures of the deep to undo the global chaos they have triggered. Stranded with her injured captain, Lavena must win the trust of the beings who control their fate -- but the price for Riker's survival may be the loss of everything he holds dear.

Over a Torrent Sea is technically listed as the fifth book in the Star Trek Titan series, but is actually the eighth book if you include the three book crossover miniseries Star Trek Destiny. Considering that Destiny is a major status quo changing event (not to mention a good trilogy) I would highly recommend that you read those titles first. This story is set in the year 2381, about two years after the events of the movie Star Trek Nemesis.

Following the events of the Destiny trilogy, where the Federation had its final (hopefully) showdown with the Borg, the USS Titan has resumed its mission of peaceful exploration into uncharted territory. During the course of the story the crew investigates a strange water covered planet, dubbed Droplet, that supports a surprisingly high amount of life. In what has become a pattern, the crew of the USS Titan screws up and violates Starfleet's Prime Directive on non-interference with the local civilizations and must spend the rest of the book trying to fix their mistake. Riker and the ships helmsman Laveena are stranded on the planet after an attempt to prevent a natural disaster literally blows up in their faces.

The planet Droplet and its inhabitants are fairly interesting, with a great deal of detail being given to explain the how and why of the planets ecosystem. The plot while interesting in theory just wasn't executed very well. It was sluggish and followed the pattern of the last few Titan books, where Riker thinks he is doing something good, but winds up breaking something and has to fix it. The stories self-contained nature also gives it the sense of being filler, with almost nothing of lasting consequence happening.

That one new change to the status quo being the birth of Riker and Troi's baby, which is the focus of the books secondary plot. This plotline follows Councilor Troi being abducted by a member of the crew right before she goes into labor with her baby. This plotline feels borderline ridiculous in both how it is executed and how its resolved. The whole scenario feels less like a dramatic event and more like padding to extend the length of the book, with the characters pretty much agreeing never to discuss it ever again.

The story also continues a trend of the Titan books to dwell and obsess over the sex lives of the various crew members, as if that was the only thing the crew engaged in during their off duty hours. This is compounded by the one-dimensional roles most of the cast assumes during this story.

Overall this story just didn't really captivate me and felt rather weak. The Titan series seems to have fallen into a bit of a rut with the adventures following similar patterns each time, giving a sense repetition. Hopefully future books break from the established story template and start shaking things up a bit.

I am a great fan of Christopher L. Bennett's work. He's one of those rare authors who attempts to take Trek technobabble seriously, which seems a bit like trying to roll Sisyphus' boulder, yet somehow manages to make things make semi-coherent sense. His Department of Temporal Investigations books incorporate a lot of RL physics to make Star Trek's "time travel runs on the power of plot" almost plausible.

Over A Torrent Sea is the first Star Trek Titan book to take place after the events of Star Trek: Destiny. Despite this, the events of the Destiny series are almost incidental to the book. They're not ignored, Captain Riker wonders why they're not rebuilding the myriad devastated worlds left behind, but the book gives an understandable reason for our heroes returning to their mission of exploration.

Actually, let me take that back, the events of Destiny are very important to the plot but reflects on the more personal losses of the crew as opposed to the widespread destruction the Borg inflicted. Members of the crew aren't thinking about the annihilation of Risa but people they knew who were killed, such as Tuvok's son or a family pet.

Over A Torrent Sea has a definite "old time" science fiction feel to it. Part of what has made Star Trek: Titan so interesting is the series has focused on developing new and unique cultures for our heroes to interact with. Care and attention is taken to develop the alien's culture, technology, as well as how they interact with their biosphere. Nods are even made to how their world may have evolved. The science is unlikely, but it doesn't mean it's impossible. Combined with the in-depth character study, I really liked it.

In conclusion, Over A Torrent Sea is a great book. It's a story about meeting new life and new civilizations while boldly going where no man has gone before. The fact there's no villains and the problems are purely natural in nature makes Roddenberry's vision stand out all the greater. Was it perfect? No, I had some problems with a few elements and it dragged in one or two places but I overall loved it.

Love the story and the introduction of Alli Laverne, another character from the Titan 's diverts crew! The story, all be it was understood, however was complex enough to be hard to follow. I love the story line and the birth Deanna and Will 's baby!

Though this particular book had an all to familiar ending, I'm glad the outcome was as it was. On a negative note, it had far too many oceanic grammatical terms that I had to keep up with. Far too many! Overall it was a good read but I could easily given up without finishing it.

Ugh. This book was so annoying. All the sex drama. It was so bad. I gagged and almost threw up in my mouth reading about Riker's manhood getting an uncontrolled rise due to Ensign Lavena's attempt to warm him up because he was shivering. You can skip this book and just read the end few sections.

I am biased about aquatic stories. I work in the aquatics industry so this book particularly appealed to me. This book was also a nice change of pace from Destiny as it takes place directly after the Borg invasion and is a slower but interesting story. I never imagined a water world with no land what so ever (not even islands, well not really). It's a solid ocean almost straight to the core of the planet. Neat ideas in this one...
