Well David, I have to say from the except I read over on TrekWeb the other day, this whole triology is going to be awesome and the biggest event of all the books of the year. Glad to see that the calendar featuring the found Columbia was mentioned to have been explored before the start of the Dominion War. Any hints to if we are going to see flashbacks to those scenes of the Columbia first being found? I"m just happy that the image was finally used to set up a story. Can't wait for the first book comes out.
