Still on Harbinger
(about two-thirds through), a quick note: There's a nod to Doctor Who
in chapter 2, when Quinn uses a sonic screwdriver. Bam, that took me right out of the story - parodistic elements in a serious tale really hurt suspension of disbelief, IMHO. I actually had to stop for a minute and convince myself that maybe, maybe
a sonic screwdriver is a valid item of Trek technology.
Other than that admittedly minor quibble, I'm quite intrigued so far, though. There's no doubt I'll move past book one into the rest of the series.
