Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I can imagine that the idea that he has to ensure he kills off a few really popular ST regulars in each volume in order to get into the mainstream media is definitely not a compliment
I was simply referring to some bbs regulars' jokes that David Mack had a reputation for high carnage rates in recent books. I'm certainly not advocating that he should/will kill off regular characters, nor that Pocket should do so just to get some publicity for the fiction lines.

As we've seen over and over since the death of Spock in ST II, no one stays dead too long in Star Trek - or science fiction or comics - anyway, and to kill off major characters hoping to sell extra books ends up distressing much of the fanbase, who may then stop reading said books.
