Re: It's Over.
As much as I've been enjoying the big political arc, I do agree it would be nice if we got more stand alone exploration stories. Maybe instead of all the TOS books in the beginning of the year, they could give us a combination of TOS, and standalone 24th century in-continuity exploration stories leading up the the big event at the end of the year.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
