^ Hah! Hope you enjoy your marathon. I actually started writing The Black Shore
before the first episode of Voyager
even aired. At first, all I had to go on was the original series bible and some articles in Starlog
magazine, but most of the book was written while the first season was airing.
And, yeah, that does seem like a long
time ago . . . .
Oh, funny true story: I actually came up with the idea for The Black Shore
while attending a sales conference at a Florida beach resort. I was sunning myself on the beach, struggling to come up with an idea for this new Star Trek series Pocket had just told me about, when I glanced around at my surroundings: sand, shore, palm trees, etc.
"Hmm. Maybe I can do something with this . . . ."
