Hi Christopher, Still reading, but I just loved...



Loving the book so far, currently ranking it near Ex Machina, my favorite Trek book of yours, and indeed of the franchise.
Thanks! As for the spoiler, no, you caught all the references of that particular type. I considered including the thing you suggest, but I couldn't figure out a suitably concise description and I didn't really have the opportunity.

However, there are plenty of in-jokes in character names and the like.

Are there any sneaky little mentions of the Star Trek: Online alternate future in this book? Grabbing it for sure on the 9th when I head into the city.
Nothing from ST:O, no. I'm not very familiar with it, and I don't really think of it as something that can fit into the same Trek continuity as the novels, even as an alternate timeline. I mean, there are so many game-oriented things about it that could never be true in the "real" Trek universe, like the absurdly gigantic "sets" to allow virtual camera movement, the way every player is instantly a captain with one's own ship, the way every specific mission gets played over and over again by different people, etc.
