One of my favorite characters in Trek Lit is Miranda Kadohata, and I hope to see more of her (maybe a writer on here can shed some light on that?) I definitely think that the newer characters can be as interesting as the TV characters,
I'd like to see Kadohata return too. And it would also be nice if Faur got some kind of character development... as it is now, she seems pretty much a cipher.
Generally speaking, I'm all for lit-only characters. I like to see the universe expanded beyond just the TV shows. IMHO Vanguard
is one of the best series in recent memory, and it was (almost) all lit-only characters!
