When I read the title, i thought that someone else has become frustrated about the current state of trek lit too.
I don't want characters to become unrecognizable though.
That's the key and the reason why i dropped the DS9 Relaunch.
I don't mind character progress and i fully appreciate that the writers want to use the whole playground. But these developments are not authentic. That's like Kirk dropping command of the Enterprise and pursuing a scientific career - nonsense.
And the events in the other novels ...
especially the Jesus-, ahm, Janeway-story and 'Cold Equations' are way over-the-top.
So, my personal
wish is to have stories that are interconnected, show character development but are not totally distorting the characters.
Just my 2c.
