And then this thread died.

I just saw this in SFX and thought I'd check it out. Interesting.

No one said it was created by Judith & Garfield Reeves Stevens, who are responsible for some of the better Trek novels as well as the final season of ENT. The stories have more, I dunno, consistency, but don't reach as far. Connor isn't in it enough to give it actual dinosaur verisimilitude, which was an aspect of the original I preferred. We aren't getting a sense of actual epochs, even though the terror birds can be narrowed down to the Cenozoic. The creature effects in the first ep were a little ropy but they improved quickly.

Oh, interesting tie back to TOS, as well as Connor.


The cast is not bad, and it will be interesting to see where it goes.
