Again, no on both counts.

And now that we've hit the books I figured people would guess, hopefully someone will get on the right track.

Nope, nope, and nope.

Nope, nope, and nope, although 21Spike65 is somewhat on the right track.

So it's New Frontier, I guess. Let's see which books had the Enterprise crew?

Since it was their first appearance:

House of Cards

We have a winner!

Yes, Riker reflected on that memory to compare to the tension he felt when he entered the briefing room to discuss the collapse of the Thallonian Empire.

Your turn.

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

Nice.

Here's a new one:

Starring out of the viewports into the void surrounding his vessel, he knew his anger would soon fade. Eventually he would refocus his energies on whatever challenge or obstacle presented itself. But even as the Enterprise surged forward through the vast expanse of space, James Kirk felt the seeds of pain, shame, and hate planted within the center of his own heart, dragging him backward into the chaos of rage and despair.
He could only hope that, one day, the dream of peace between his people and the Klingons could be accomplished before the dark emotions he harbored finally engulfed him.
