The last note I have is stylistic. There were times where parentheses were used where I really didn't care for it. That's the typographical equivalent of mumbling and kind of says "not important, not important," about whatever's between them. And sometimes the information between them either WAS important or was quite funny and deserved to have more of an impact than the way it was typed allowed it to have.
Yes indeedy, Christopher does love his parenthetical phrases. I think I've seen more parentheses in his Trek writings than I've seen in anything else I've read in recent memory.
Although, I did notice that his recent Mirror Universe story was distinctly lacking in them. ::wistful sigh
