Re: ENT: A Choice of Futures by C. L. Bennett Review Thread (Spoilers!

Just started the second book, which reminded me of a question about this book.

Chapters 12 and 13 take place on the centennial of first contact day and none of the characters acknowledge the anniversary at all. I expected at least an internal monologue recognizing the date, if not a huge party.

At first I thought it was a missed opportunity, but it seems likely that the aftermath of World War III and issues with the Vulcans means 22nd century humans are somewhat more jaded about that date than the crew of the Enterprise-E.
