check my post. I have been here a long time and not ever done any wild speculation. Do I have the book, cover, and all infront of me? No... Just take it as a rumor for now. But there is a great deal to it. If I am wrong I'll be happy!!!!!!!! Because I think it's be very very bad thing.
Well, since only 18 of your posts are still in the system and only one is in TrekLit, it's hard to check your credibility this way.

I severly doubt that Earth will be destroyed personally, since I don't think that is something that would be approved by Paula M. Block, despite her rather relaxed ways in the past when it came to approving Trek Literature, even if the author/editors would like to do it (something I very much doubt, actually).

This just in... we can confirm that this rumor definitely is a rumor.

Besides, Pluto was just destroyed... so doesn't that mean Neptune is next? (Or maybe Eris...)

Easy, boy, easy! I'm just saying, I really doubt it. But hey, the Doctor Who books blew up Gallifrey back in 2000, and nobody saw that coming back then, so...

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Knowing nothing whatsoever about the Destiny trilogy and as much as Ienjoy the Reeves-Stevens' work on the Shatner-verse, there isn't any reason for the Borg to be responsible for V'ger.

If, as has been the case since they were introduced, the Borg are only interested in assimilating species and tech that could enhance the collective, a Voyager deep space probe wouldn't attract their notice any more than a planet full of cavemen and '57 Chevy's would.

Neither has anything the Collective wants or needs.

Repairing/enhancing a Voyager probe to, essentially, godlike status is quite beyond the capabilities of the Borg. If it wasn't, why would they bother sending out cubes and spheres? Just send out six or seven V'gers and you can assimilate the whole universe in no time flat.

It's like the Wookie defense.

And some of us wish you hadn't!

As for the rumor, that would be bold. However, I seriously doubt it if for no other reason than that I doubt that the higher ups would allow it.

If Earth were destroyed, I'd bet that it would be reset pretty quickly later -- if not at the end of Destiny then in whatever other book followed it up.

Pretty sure they're trying to avoid any resets with Destiny... which also means being careful about what changes you make, lest you come to regret it later on.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

And of course it has to last until at least the 31st century.

Not necessarily. It could be New Earth.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I really hope this is only a rumor. You can't blow up the Earth; Trek is more upbeat than that. This isn't nuBSG, you know.

I've been out of the loop recently, has that title been announced before? Or did you just sneak that surprise in on us just now? Either way I'm rather pleased that you'll be following up Destiny, ever since the final three A Time To books I thought the writing styles of you and David Mack complement each other nicely in this sort of follow-up type of situation.

While I don't normally think Trek (or any other sci-fi property) should be either more or less like another sci-fi property, I actually fully agree with your statement here. Earth is simply too important, too big (a player not size) for Trek to do something this drastic this soon ('soon' being relative of course after 40+ years of Trek ).

Yes. Yes it was. The early 2009 titles were announced at New York Comic-Con on Saturday. I posted here, and it was, as you can see, picked up by all the major Trek news sites....
