This week I reread Seize the Fire
and enjoyed tremendously, just as last time.
The Gorn receive well-reserved expansion, and a good one at that. Another plus was the continuity with The Gorn Crisis
, though I haven't read that yet.
TTN is still my favourite series because the characters are memorable and because I love the species diversity. Not until I began reading this series did I notice how infested Starfleet was with boring Humans.
I can't escape to notice that TTN's modus operandi is to encounter a (seemingly) pre-warp culture in peril.
Having read STF again, and being in great anticipation of The Poisoned Chalice
, I might go back and reread all of the TTN novels. Hopefully the series continues after TPC.
