Re: TNG Numbered Books?
The Eyes of the Beholders (#13) was also one I enjoyed, and (in my head) its actually what happened with Dr. selar, not what apparently happened in the New frontier books (I haven't been able to read many of the NF books unfortunately, but as much as I really like Peter David, I think this book told a story with Selar, a background character in only one or two episodes, with a nice ending then the weird stuff PD did with her in that series).
Wow, we actually agree one something.
The Selar story was probably one of my least favorite parts of NF.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
