Re: TP: Brinkmanship by Una McCormack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Personally, I've only read the Aventine parts of it. However...from what I've read of that, it's actually pretty balanced. I don't see Ms. McCormack as imposing anything (unless it's in the Picard parts, maybe?). She delves into a grey area.

Ezri's not being a dove by any means--and Alden's not being a caricature of a hawk.

BTW...I sincerely hope that, if Alden ever shows up again--and I hope he may...
