Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Don't any of you writers take this personally, but if you blow up the Earth, I will be *more* upset, *more* pissed, than when I saw the second part of "The Second Renaissance" * (from Animatrix). And *that* time, I got so freaked out that I went and got my existing Matrix DVD and ripped it to shreds.

If the Earth is destroyed (which is about the most un-Trek thing you could possibly do ), who knows what I might do?
Whatever it is, hopefully you won't do it to Poor Dominatrix Admiral Nechayev....

* Specifically, it was the scene where the machines have won the war, and are proceeding to lay the smackdown on the surviving human troops, who are seen being yanked out of their APCs, ripped bodily to pieces, experimented on, etc. You can see why I might get just a tad upset at that. And blowing up the Earth would be a lot worse than this, IMHO.
No kidding. Can you imagine what would happen if they'd killed off Optimus Prime?

I haven't read any of the trek books in ages. Mostly because I've spent most of the past two years broke trying to get my own career launched, but also because I find my interest waning. I certainly mean no disrespect to the current crop of writers -- I've met several of you and what little I do know about the books sounds interesting, but for me the glory days of the early 1990s were my favorite.

However, I would like to get back in to the books. I think the last ones I read were the two Khan books Greg Cox wrote. I was also very interested in Crucible, but there's just so much now that its hard to keep track. And, honestly, I don't know if its futile or not but it will be hard to top my favorite Trek novel -- Q-In-Law -- so I'm a bit hesitant.

That said, I hope the "leaked" plot points for this will prove to be inaccurate.
