Sorry, just not interested in this one. The time for this book was 10 years ago.
I don't know what that means. Plenty of Trek novels have revisited concepts or themes from episodes/films made decades earlier. Ex Machina came out a quarter-century after ST:TMP, but I never heard anyone say it wasn't "timely." And my next novel will be revisiting that era, seven and a third years after Ex Machina came out.

I don't mean to criticize this book or the author but this story seemed to come out of no where; I don't think the lost era has been visited in awhile.
It's only been a bit over three years since the last Lost Era novel.
