Bowers is black?
OK, here's my problem. I've read so many TOS books years ago I think I just got into the groove of not paying a lot of attention to the characters descrptions. I mean after all, how many times do I need to read a description of Spock?
So unless they point out something like Bowers being black or Tenmai is asian, etc in every paragraph that's a detail I'm probably going to miss.
And that's cool since it rarely matters to the story, and that's the way it should be.
