Re: The U.S.S. Bozeman's experience?
IMO, forget Ship Of The Line. Like Christopher stated, it was clearly seen in the episode itself there was a woman in the bridge-crew, something Diane Carey completely ignored while she went for an all male crew. That, together with bad writing, silly plot and Picard doing nothing but worshipping Kirk, make this a rather silly novel.
I would like nothing better than to forget it. I still have visions of George Hill ensnaring Bozeman
bridge officers with his tentacles.
