Glad to know that Slings and Arrows is going to be collected into paperback. What fascinates me is the possibilities of the Enterprise crew's reassignments and where they all went to prior to waiting for the E to be finished. I have speculated that Commander Riker would be high on the list for requests as first officer and possibly offered yet another command of his own. Data would be interested. I kind of picture a "The Lost Years" TNG style. Everyone in a flux and going their seperate ways before being reunited a year or so later.
Well then, boy, are you in for whatever the opposite of a treat is...
