It's a great book series, and David Gerrorld, along with D.C. Fontana have launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a series based on the books.
I've always enjoyed David's works, and think this could work rather well as a series. Yes, it is Trek inspired in a few places, but I feel he's kept the best of Trek for his series.

Who else has read the books, and what are your thoughts on them, and this series idea?
