The next one on my list is Flashback. Since this one is a single episode instead of a 2 parter there's going to be a ton of new content and since we've got Sulu it's all going to be about how TOS was the real Star Trek.
isn't bad, honestly. It was a decent novelization/expansion. As for Equinox
, Broken Bow
and the others? Nah, as much as I love her writing, it never really works for anything but TOS. The editors kept assigning novelizations to Carey because she could do them quickly.
However, to this day, Final Frontier
remains my favorite Trek novel.
Hey, I was surprised, I didn't think Flashback
was that bad either. Well, until the tacked on obligatory Kirk worship in the final 3 chapters. I was REALLY expecting a ton of TOS worship and she pretty much avoided that most of the way. None of the characters talk or think they way I expect them to but that's not always a negative in a Voyager novel.
I'll blasting through Broken Bow
during the downtimes while watching the Golden Globes.
The book I'm really reading right now is DTI: Watching the Clock
. I'm totally enjoying it. I'm about a quarter of the way through. The opening couple of paragraphs cracked me up. I haven't figured out if there's an ongoing plot or if it's a series of events tied to various time travel episodes but it doesn't matter. I'm having a lot of fun reading this.
