I actually re-read Over A Torrent Sea last week, and although I like it, the science was getting in the way for me in that one. Usually, I love how Christopher is able to blend science and fiction so well together, but in this one, it really was a bit to much for me.
That's actually why I loved it, I think.

What I wouldn't give for a Trek book that's entirely sciencey, with little drama or conflict to get in the way of it. It'd never happen, and I wouldn't want EVERY Trek book to be like that, but one or two? Heck yeah.

You know those novels that start with 'Captains Log - we have spent the last two weeks studying the Parmesan Nebula...' when something more chasey and shooty happens ?

Let's not have the chasing and shooting. As long as theres plenty of character stuff and interesting science going on, let's have two weeks studying the Parmesan Nebula !

And yes, I did vote for 'Over A Torrent Sea' - not a coincidence...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
