Re: The U.S.S. Bozeman's experience?
I've not yet had the privilege of reading Watching the Clock beyond peaking at excerpts via Google Books. It's on my list of books to read. By the way, are you involved in the upcoming series of novels that follow the events of the Typhon Pact series?
It is an amazing book. I rate both the DTI books among the best modern Trek books (Heck, they rate highly for me among any Trek books).
