I do believe that's from our own Mr. Ward's In the Name of Honor.

Correct. It's the final paragraph of the novel.

Now it is your turn to post a new quote.

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

Woo-hoo!

All right, contestants... Name That Quote:

To their astonishment, a small stuffed tiger was ricocheting from one guard to another, making loud "grrrrr" noises. An owl was flapping about getting in all their faces, and a rabbit was bouncing squarely on the head of one of the security guards. The bear, for no discernible reason, was performing mild calisthenics and muttering to himself.

Sounds like the Winnie the Pooh scene from Q-squared.

Well, it's not that often that a bear, a tiger, a rabbit and an owl appear in one scene in a Trek Book.


There were many days in Spock's life that he would have defined as happy, though he doubted he would have admitted it aloud to anyone. But to stand there in Quark's bar and to marry Jadzia right there with Sirella officiatibg and Sarek, McCoy, and Uhura present was one of the moments he would treasure until the day he died.

Correct again.

If we continue that way I fear they'll throw us out of here.

You can definitely tell who has nothing else to do on a Sunday night, huh? This one should prove more of a challenge:

Sagan nodded, then resumed scanning the horizon and the distant, snow-bedecked steepness of Mount Maxwell. "The amount of energy you'll need just to cool down the atmosphere is incredible. The number of megajoules needed must be--"

"Billions and billions," Seyetik said with a smirk.

Sagan sighed. "I never, ever said that. Why does everyone feel obliged to make that same pathetic joke every time they talk to me?"

Well it's almost early monday morning for me, it's almost 4 am. Just can't find sleep tonight for some reason.

I'm pretty sure that's from Ishtar Rising. Not sure which part, though I would guess part I.

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

^ When I read Sagan, it just made click.

"Ambassador Zarv," Kirk said. The Tellarite seemed an unlikely choice for negotiation of any type. He was brusque, rude and going out of his way to be obnoxious. "Welcome aboard the starship Enterprise."
"I know what this hunk of tin is!" The transporter technician stiffened. Kirk bit back a smile. Scotty had his engineering section imbued with the same love of the enterprise that he had. If Scotty had heard the Enterprise referred to as a "hunk of tin," he'd have heaved the ambassador back into the transporter and dispersed the beam in empty space.

Well, you got it, Steel. It's Intellivore - obviously a Trek novel that's made a huge impact on the Trek community Ah well. I just liked the name of the novel, that's why I picked it up and read it - not Duane's best book.
Intellivore is totally sweet. It might not be Duane's best, but Duane's worst knocks most people's best out of the park.

I should have realized though-- I just reread Dark Mirror, and this reminded me of a passage there.
