Re: News about early 2014 schedule
Not to restate what I'm sure has been stated a million times, but I feel like this argument ultimately represents a strength of Trek in general and the novel line in particular, and one of the reasons that it supports so many more publications annually than any other similar tie-in line: lots of different approaches, and lots of different overlapping audiences.
Different writers with different approaches, different readers with different approaches. It's healthy. Keeps things interesting.
Oh, I completely agree. That's one of my favorite things about the Trek franchise as a whole. You can tell tons of different types of stories, in a lot of different ways and still have them all be a part of the same whole.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
