No kidding. Can you imagine what would happen if they'd killed off Optimus Prime?
Ah, but they brought him back.
Reset. LAME.

I've said it before. I'll say it again. You good folks have absolutely no idea what's about to happen in the Destiny trilogy....

Yeah... they're assuming only one planet will be destroyed...

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

They aren't going to blow up Earth. It will actually be a holodeck recreation and earth will actually be cloaked to make everyone think it was destroyed to protect it from the new xindi weapon. In the 31st Centruy the Doctor and 7 of 9 will discover the truth in a book called "William Shatner".

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

So, how many years after Before Dishonor does Greater than the Sum and the Destiny Trilogy take?

Because right now I'm having a little hard time with the idea of Ezri making captain possibly before Worf. I would rather see Worf as captain of the Defiant with Ezri as First Officer.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

^They take place only a few months apart, but you have to realize that the DS9 fiction is set four years earlier than the TNG, and in all of that time Dax is moving up the command track. Worf, on the other hand, has only just barely returned to Starfleet after being an Ambassador for four years.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

David will probably be planning alot of unexpected twist and turns that are totally unexpected in this series we'll all be talking about them when these books come out. He enjoys keeping us guessing as to what will be happening with this series.

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.
Well, the great thing about Crucible (apart from the fact that it's well, great!) is that it doesn't require knowledge of anything but onscreen Trek. You don't have to "keep track" of anything!

The Angel of Death just couldn't get enough with killing a few characters this time, he's gonna blow up entire planets?

That's the kind of body count that's going to make it impossible for anyone to ever top you...

Oh, that's silly. Someone could take out an entire solar system. Why stop there? A few galaxies or maybe an entire universe?

So no, it's not impossible to top that.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Eh, it's different if it's not reset at the end, and is a planet we actually are familiar with. Destroy planet W from the XERT galaxy all you like, but blowing up the Earth counts for more. Especially since the body count would be heavy in characters we are already familiar with. Blow up eleventy trillion aliens from the Rth dimension, less impact on the reader (and the future of the storyline).
