Re: TTN: Fallen Gods by Michael A. Martin Review Thread (Spoilers!)
Having spent a little time turning over the events in my head, I find myself troubled by one thing.
Perhaps I'm just being too "pie in the sky" about it, but even given everything the Federation has been through post-
, I could never, EVER believe that the higher ups would force any Andorian who chose to stay to stay out of his/her job. Especially since, given that I believe this takes place prior to
Plagues of Night/Raise the Dawn
, there isn't any actual threat. And certainly I don't think anyone would expect any captain to just blithely enforce the order. I get the parellel Martin is going for, especially since it's spelled out overtly in the text, but I just can't buy that as something that the touchy-feely Federation we all know and love would do that.
