I'm very sorry to hear the series was dragged down by something like this, and it only validates the decision I made a while back that on the whole, modern Treklit just isn't worth the investment in time or money anymore.
It isn't fair to judge all of trek lit based upon one book or even this one author. Though I'm not reading Martin books anymore, I find the quality of the books and authors on the whole is the best it has ever been. That said, I feel Martin shouldn't be writing Trek lit anymore because his books do bring down the quality of the whole and might discourage readers.
If you just don't want to read new books, you are missing out on quality Trek.
