BTW,if I never again read anything more about Chen's love life it will be too soon.
Because characters should be written as flat, two-dimensional constructs without complete emotional lives?
I'm sympathetic to flandry84's view; it felt like a bit much of her. (Lasting the whole book? Really?) I would've just as soon had those scenes devoted to Geordi's love-life, honestly. A little Trys goes a long way.
No, I think the Trys/Taurik arc required some resolution. They introduced this arc four years ago after Destiny -- time for Taurik and Trys to commit to either being friends or lovers one way or the other. I was glad for the focus it got.

I do, however, want to see more about Trys's professional growth and development. We got a bit of this in Book II when she stared down the Atlas and the Gorn while left in command of the Enterprise; I hope they build on this as TNG progresses.
