Well, Diane Carey has always found ways to take shots at anyone or anything that contradicts her view of the Trek universe. Probably why she hasn't written anything of consequence in years. No one will deal with her BS.
Off-topic. When Therin
mentioned "DC," he meant D. C. Fontana, author of the novel Vulcan's Glory
, not Diane Carey. Fontana is the one who inserted the line about Spock being the only son of Sarek in order to protest TFF.
