Quote:*great* theory - will that imply that Seven has finally gotten a Starfleet commission? And there's still that hint of it being Annika on the cover and not actually Seven.
Quote:I wonder if O'Brien could be convined to come back to the Enterprise?
Quote:did you feel as though the relation pings between Worf and T'Lana were way forced and unnecessary?

Quote:Anyway, the timeline is something I wanted to talk about, because I'm not sure where each series is right now. I think the DS9 relaunch is a couple of years behind Voyager, and Voyager's relaunch is a couple of years behind TNG & Titan. Don't know where New Frontier falls in there either (it first started just after Generations, though it was caught up to the DS9 relaunch during the big crossover).

Quote:Janeway makes an appearance, as well as some other Next Gen folks (who are no longer on Enterprise).
Quote:We are introduced to some of the new officers, and I think they worked better than the Vulcan counselor in Resistance.
Quote:It's a fun novel, but there's not much action. I definately enjoyed it, and would recommend it - though it's not one of my all time favorite Trek novels.
Quote:There were a number of scenes taking place in other locations (Titan, Gorkon, New Frontier) - but I thought it irksome that DS9 and Voyager were left out. Now the claim of the author is that it's because the series that were referenced have Next Gen connections - but I'm sorry, the Klingon commander from Riker's episode where he serves on a Klingon ship and Shelby who appeared in two episodes is stretching that Next Gen connection when you don't include DS9 which has Ro Laren on board. I didn't hate those appearances, but it felt a little like KRAD was taking me on a tour of his greatest hits.
Quote:I liked the way in which Q's appearances were explained as part of a larger tapestry - though I was ultimately dissappointed with the final planet/test and the way to save the universe.
Quote:I liked a lot of the alternate universes we were exposed to - some were more interesting than the mainline one.
Quote:Does the second officer have to be best friends with the Chief Engineer? They seem to make a big deal out of this - but I couldn't tell what the author was trying to do here.
Quote:Then the big reveal is, it's because she's in Data's old position and he feels he's betraying his friend's memory by being friends with her - or something. It just didn't play well for me.
Quote:Ok first anyone heard of The Sky's the Limit? Its a TNG book I guess I couldent even find a summary for it, just say on amazon that it came out Oct. 16. I'll have to go to the book store and give it a more of a looking at. I though Before Dishonor had to be next, with each of the last two books haveing excerpts from it in them.
Quote:Wheres Harry Kim or Tom Paries, mabye there have been books dealing with that which I never read because I have never been a huge ST literature fan,

Quote: but I felt like, all in all, nothing major happened. Nothing that's going to really change things. The book, as I suspected, is merely a bridging point to get us introduced to the new crew for Before Dishonor.

Quote:Upcoming post-Nemesis Star Trek novels will focus on the rebuilding of Starfleet and the Federation, Pocket Books editor Margaret Clark said in an interview. "The idea is that the Enterprise has recovered from its battle with Shinzon in Nemesis, and we have to deal with what the Federation is right now," Clark told Star Trek Magazine (via TrekWeb). "Starfleet is still rebuilding from the Dominion War where so many officers were lost, so many people devastated and so many ships destroyed that we have a fleet that is fighting under-strength. But luckily the Romulan threat is slightly reduced...it's a rebuilding period for Starfleet and the Federation, and hopefully a period of going back to exploration." Clark added that Next Generation books would focus on Picard's concerns that he would never be free of the Borg and the plans concocted by Picard and Admiral Janeway to try to stop them, "but the Borg keep flipping the rules!" The books, she added, will all be set in the 24th century: "We have made a conscious decision in 2008 to stay away from the 23rd Century," allowing the producers of the upcoming Star Trek film to explore that period. TrekWeb also has a review of The Academy Collision Course, the latest novel by William Shatner, which focuses on Kirk and Spock's first meeting. "The pretty cover does not illustrate the travesty of prose that is to follow," wrote reviewer Jeff Ayers. Ayers called the storyline "totally ludicrous from the start" and said that the climax of the story "goes so over the top and is so unbelievable that the reader is left laughing with the sheer lunacy", in particular Starfleet's recruitment methods. The book received only one star out of four as a work of Star Trek fiction.
