Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^Oh, yes. A lot of the '80s novels seem to be trying to have it both ways: they say that years have passed since the events of TOS episodes, yet the familiar TOS status quo is still in place with everyone in the same ranks and jobs. They didn't seem to dwell on the "five-year mission" concept as much as we do today, blithely saying that the mission was still continuing without change into what would have to be its eighth or tenth year or the like.
