You know I find it funny that people are expecting a resurrection in a Davis Mack trilogy of all places, I mean we are talking about the guy who has no problem what so ever killing one or more characters if it served the story.
If anything I'm wondering if someone is going to die in this trilogy.
Ok, that made me chuckle.
Although, I have a sneaky suspision that by the end of this trilogy, the E-E may have a new captain. With some of the talk in other novels about Picard feeling he is in a different place in his life then he thought he would be (husband, father), I can't help but wonder if he'll stay on much longer.
