I'm just saying that if they sneak stuff into a novel that doesn't belong there (without saying they've done it), I won't be adding that novel to my collection.
That would apply to every novel containing an in-joke that's every been written. And most every fanfic, I suspect.

So if they do it and they tell you in the foreword, you won't buy it, and it they do it and they don't tell you, you also won't buy it?
I don't mind in-jokes if it references something I like. But I hate the Abramsverse stuff and don't want it in something that claims to be a TOS book.

So yeah, if I know beforehand that the book is really a crossover between real ST and nuTrek, I won't buy it. If I buy it and find out it's a crossover while reading it, I will return it for a refund. Either way, it doesn't get to stay in my collection. And based on what I've read upthread, I've got some weeding out to do.

For some great Original Series fanfic, check out the Valjiir Continuum!
