Re: Star Trek: Destiny: Lost Souls - Discuss/Grade

I just bought it at Borders today.

Interesting anecdote about that. A woman, about forty, was talking to the sales associate at the Star Trek shelf. She was complaining about the selection of Star Trek novels; they didn't have what she wanted.

I couldn't get at the shelf to see if they had what I wanted. Finally, the sales associate left, I came around and at the shelf from the opposite direction, and there I saw Lost Souls. "Book three!" I exclaimed.

"What's this?" she said.

"Destiny," I said. "It's the fecal matter hitting the fan Star Trek trilogy. I need the final book, I need to know how it ends."

We talked about Gods of Night, and I tried hard to sell her on buying that, but she ended up buying Resistance instead, to get the post-Nemesis story from the beginning.
