No, I entered
the thread to legitimately comment on Hive (what, did you think I decided "Dimesdan commented last, I must go and argue with him!", as opposed to entering a thread based on its title
?!); so you can knock off the holier-than-thou, patronising request for opinions.
FYI: What I had
intended to say regarding issue 1 was that I wasn't fond of the artwork and that (as others appear to agree) the story is a pretty blatant recycling of plotlines used before in one form or another through TNG and VOY. As such, I won't bother with #2.
But, you derailed things by making baseless accusations, which both Sci
and myself rebuffed. Not to mention an undeservedly arrogant attitude in your responses to an accomplished Trek Lit author, and openly insulting him by way of your petty little "pedantic" jibe. I sincerely doubt you'd have the gall to act that way in real life, and if you do then shame on whoever dragged you up into adulthood!
You insist upon continually arguing that Christopher
made a sweeping, absolute statement that Producers don't ever
read tie-in products. This is quite blatantly not what he said, and your accusation is therefore false. Restating it ad nauseum
will not make it magically come true. How is this hard to comprehend?
As far as his lack of a reply to you, consider: A) We don't all log in every day on these forums, due to Dreaded Real Life. B) He's possibly decided your lack of comprehension of even basic English is sufficient to warrant your argument as unworthy of taking the time to respond further.
If it's the latter, I'm inclined to agree. And about how that
looks from where you're sat, I couldn't give a flying Shat's hairpiece.
