Who else has read the books, and what are your thoughts on them, and this series idea?
It's been a long
time since I read The Voyage of the Star Wolf
. (I haven't read The Middle of Nowhere
or Blood and Fire
They read like Star Trek
with the serial numbers filed off. It might be better to say that The Voyage of the Star Wolf
is what Star Trek: The Next Generation
would have been if Riker, not Picard, were the dramatic lead. Gerrold took some of his ideas for what Star Trek
could be and built a novel out of them.
Gerrold has wanted a Star Wolf
television series for some time. (He even talks about it in his semi-autobiographical novel The Martian Child
.) Now that there isn't a Star Trek
television series, this could fill the niche.
