^Thanks for the review! About the bit that annoyed you... if it's the thing I think you mean, I'd point out that Lucsly isn't a Starfleet officer, but a civilian government agent. And his job involves a lot of classified and potentially dangerous knowledge, so sometimes being selective about the truth is part of his job.
I understand. Also, it fits with the themes of the book as well as "Once More Into the Breach" where the importance of figures' factual history has less to do with their importance than people think. Still, I've always been vaguely suspicious of books/TV that go, "we can't handle the truth!" I imagined it wouldn't have bothered me were it not Kirk.

Thanks for responding!

I intend to read many more of your books in the future! (I really enjoyed the Titan one!)
