As shocking as that would be I really doubt TBP would actually let this happen.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

It is amazing that Pocket and even David would let these WILD speculations go on unchallenged. Why can't everyone wait until the first book is released? I'm sure it will be well worth the wait and then everyone will feel like a low life because they totally missed the boat. Let David have some peace will you so he can finish the series without all this broo ha ha. (forgive me if broo ha ha is not spelled right.)?

^What's so wrong with people speculating about the events of Destiny? That maybe they'll be wrong? So what? It's part of the fun of anticipating a major new release that promises to shake things up a bit. I'm sure David Mack isn't going to lose sleep because people are looking forward to his books and wondering what might happen in them.

The smartest minds in the Starfleet Corps of Engineers would be in on that.

Plus Tev, of course.

Why bother to challenge them? The more rampant and misguided speculation there is in advance, the more surprised people will be when they actually read it. Besides, it's fun to see the bizarre speculations people come up with, and the totally unexpected things they read into the minimal info they have.

Let David have some peace will you so he can finish the series without all this broo ha ha. (forgive me if broo ha ha is not spelled right.)?
Brouhaha. And as it happens, Dave has already finished the trilogy (at least until the revision phase begins) and is now on a richly deserved vacation.

While you're at it, go over to to the "Star Trek XI" board and tell them they should stop speculating wildly on that until May 2009.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Don't any of you writers take this personally, but if you blow up the Earth, I will be *more* upset, *more* pissed, than when I saw the second part of "The Second Renaissance" * (from Animatrix). And *that* time, I got so freaked out that I went and got my existing Matrix DVD and ripped it to shreds.

If the Earth is destroyed (which is about the most un-Trek thing you could possibly do ), who knows what I might do?

* Specifically, it was the scene where the machines have won the war, and are proceeding to lay the smackdown on the surviving human troops, who are seen being yanked out of their APCs, ripped bodily to pieces, experimented on, etc. You can see why I might get just a tad upset at that. And blowing up the Earth would be a lot worse than this, IMHO.

Overreact to a unsatisfying leisure item, apparently.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I've advocated blowing the damned planet up a few times myself. As it is, Starfleet is a human-biased, earth prejudiced organization as it is. How better to teach those arrogant terrans a lesson than to destroy their precious planet, and who better to do it than their tiresome foes, the dreaded Borg!

And even within a single publisher, there's no strict requirement that separate works must be in continuity with each other. For instance, the Crucible trilogy and the Shatnerverse books both have continuity differences from the majority of books published these days. Consistency with onscreen Trek is a requirement for all tie-ins, but consistency with other tie-ins is merely an option.
Destroying the Earth is a plot point that deserves to have other novels be deliberately INconsistent with.

Am I overreacting? Hell yeah - it's what I do best! Why shouldn't I?

Whatever it is, hopefully you won't do it to Poor Dominatrix Admiral Nechayev....

No kidding. Can you imagine what would happen if they'd killed off Optimus Prime?

I haven't read any of the trek books in ages. Mostly because I've spent most of the past two years broke trying to get my own career launched, but also because I find my interest waning. I certainly mean no disrespect to the current crop of writers -- I've met several of you and what little I do know about the books sounds interesting, but for me the glory days of the early 1990s were my favorite.

However, I would like to get back in to the books. I think the last ones I read were the two Khan books Greg Cox wrote. I was also very interested in Crucible, but there's just so much now that its hard to keep track. And, honestly, I don't know if its futile or not but it will be hard to top my favorite Trek novel -- Q-In-Law -- so I'm a bit hesitant.

That said, I hope the "leaked" plot points for this will prove to be inaccurate.
