Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I've been reading through this thread and have been wondering will Mission Gamma 4 book Lesser Evil tie into the Destiny storyline? I recall they found out the Borg had been in the Gamma Quadrant. Will this be mentioned in the book. Since Dax was on the Defiant when found the former starfleet ship had been assimilated by the borg had crashed on an unnamed planet.I'm also curious as to how the NXo2 Columbia ended up in the Gamma Quadrant.

Well, I think it all depends on which way the superdelegates go...

Only in a painting for one of the Ships of the Line calendars (can't remember the year), at least so far.

I wonder if the Columbia thing will tie in with Kobayashi Maru.

Of course, this is just my personal speculation.
In this case, Ian, it's not speculation.

Margaret Clark has said in the past -- most recently at Shore Leave -- that there would be follow-up on "The Final Flight of the Columbia" image at some point.

ETA: I had to recheck some notes. It was Shore Leave 2006, not Shore Leave 2007. My bad. "There's a story to be told there," is the paraphrase in my notes.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I just saw that TrekWeb just posted the Amazon describtion that we are all talking about on here. Makes you wonder more about this whole thing.

I bet the Columbia got sucked into some kind of anomaly or wormhole that got her stuck in the Gamma Quadrant somehow. I'm sure Mack will explain that in the book.

I know for sure like you all, I can't wait for this book either. I have to figure out how to try things in w/ my on going series I'm working on, which will all be revealed in fan fiction and the art section as well. I have made some posts a summer or so ago about it.

Yeah, just look at Klingon politics and what has been happening with B'Oraq Obama.

I wouldnt judge by that if I were you, they don't seem to be the most reliable source when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Yeah, one of the few areas where they actually seem to have any kind of "connections" is when it comes to the IDW comics.

*sigh* And I thought we had finally put those kind of word plays into quarantine in the Bad SCE joke thread.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

As with most other people, I'm highly anticipating the Destiny novels and they're wide area of focus across many series. Because I'm not up-to-date on most of the novel-based series though, I'm a little concerned about the possibilty of spoilers and for those series and the continuation of plot threads that I am not familiar with. Because of this, I was wondering if those who are more closely involved with the novels might recommend to me what novel series I might spend the next few months focusing on to enjoy the greatest familiarity with Destiny. Here's how much I've read from each series:

TNG-R - Up to date (read up to and including Before Dishonor)
DS9-R - Only read Avatar, books 1 & 2
VOY-R - Read Home Coming & The Farther Shore
ENT-R - Up to date (read The Good That Men Do)
NF - Only read book 1, House of Cards
SCE/COE - Only on book 2 of SCE & The Art of the Comeback of COE
SGZ - Not read anything yet but own the Pantheon collection
GKN/KE - Not read anything yet but own Diplomatic Implausibility
TTN - 2/3rds through book 1
VGD - Up to date (up to and including Reap the Whirlwind)

Thanks!!
