Re: Do continuity errors/contradictions in TrekLit bother you?

To be honest, continuity errors do bother me, but much less so today now that the books pretty much exclusively carry the story forward and the authors and editors make a substantial effort to keep them consistent with each other. In the old days (1990s), it was pretty annoying when something happened in one book, and then was contradicted by another (or the tv series itself). I guess I'm not a real big parallel universes kind of guy...

Another thing that's annoyed me in the past are errors with copy-editing, for instance if a book has several typos in close proximity. I enjoyed reading the Errand of Vengeance books, but there was one point where several Klingon names that started with 'K' were incorrectly used interchangeably. Needless to say, it was a little confusing, though in most instances I was able to figure out who it really was by looking at the context.
