Generic? I did my best to make Choudhury unlike any security chief we've ever seen before.
I'm afraid she didn't stand out to me, not like your original characters in the DTI novels or on Titan.
Perhaps I just never got out of the "security chief of the week" mindset from the First Contact/Insurrection era TNG novels.
Finished it. Very much enjoyed it.
Hint, hint: Have a look on the Enterprise
-E bridge officers in Countdown
I guess this is final confirmation that the novelverse is setting up the events of the Countdown comic.
