Re: TNG: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack Review Thread (Spoile
I think part of the problem is that as the books continue to move forward they're going to become unrecogizable to casual readers. Data allows them to have a long-term connection to the original TNG TV series. I believe, long-term (unless they reboot the books at some point) Data will be back in Starfleet and in command of the Enterprise
Lets face it, the authors have really struggled to create characters for TNG that have had any kind of staying power post-Nemesis
