Re: TNG: Immortal Coil by Jeffrey Lang Review Thread (Spoilers!)

It''s funny, I just read "Persistence of Memory", not realizing that it was more or less directly tied to "Immortal Coil". Had I known, I'd have been even more excited than I already was.

One of the things I felt sad about with the current age of Trek Lit was that much of the current paradigm of fantastic stories and well developed insights into the characters and continuity didn't really hit it's full stride until post-Nemesis, which meant that Data didn't get much of the kind of character treatment that the rest of the crew has gotten in recent years. "Immortal Coil" holds a special place in my heart as one of the only pieces from the 'modern' period (outside of a couple of subplots in the "A time to..." run) that gave a serious attempt at doing just that.
