Re: Destiny=New Jedi Order?

Zefram Cochranes first contact with aliens ended up being with a scruffy looking nerfherder and some hairy tall guy that howls a lot. Some chic with her hair braided too tight and a white blonde guy with a fixation on some dead old guy were unwilling passengers

Re: Destiny=New Jedi Order?

From what little I know of Destiny (basically just the overall storyline), the comparison to NJO is an obvious one to make. However, I suspect Destiny will end up being the stronger story overall since it is a trilogy and won't be dragged out over 19 goddamn novels - seriously, no single storyline warrants that many books. Plus, it looks like Star Trek novels will be reeling from the effects of this story years later, whereas aside from a Vong-formed Coruscant, you could easily forget the Yuuzhan Vong war ever occurred by the time of the Legacy of the Force novels. Star Wars books just jumped ahead like 10 years in the narrative. It'll be interesting to see what the Trek universe is like a month or two after Destiny, should Destiny really bring about the huge changes some have speculated it will.

I'm sure there will be other differences between the stories, and seriously, the story of the more powerful enemy coming to conquer all in their path is just sort of staple of the genre...Hell, not even the genre, just storytelling and history itself.

Agreed. That was the first time it ever took me three years to read a series. The damn thing just went on FOREVER, and has (so far, anyway) put me off the Dark Nest Trilogy, and the Legacy series.

That said, I'm still looking forward to Destiny. What little I know of it, it sounds interesting, although I must have missed something somewhere, "Captain Ezri Dax"?? How did that happen??

Nothing against it, just don't remember it from a previous book.

The story behind Dax's promotion is explained in Destiny itself. The trilogy is set four years after the most recent DS9 novel.

When did this thread become about trying to convince you to purchase something that you should already have on your to be purchased list?

And for those interested in a spoiler, its also explained rather quickly in the excerpt that is available on the book's page at amazon.com (or at least on the Kindle version's page.)

Re: Destiny=New Jedi Order?

Considering that the NJO series made me stop reading SW books, hell no.

The first Destiny book was great anyway. I finished it in two nights or so.

Re: Destiny=New Jedi Order?

I'm trying to figure out, per the topic, who would lead the Trek heroes to victory against the Borg, only to betray them 10 years later, turn into a dark, powerful, and get killed by his twin sister...

What?

Well I suppose Riker could do so, then get killed by his copy. Close enough.

Works better if Tom was the one to "go dark". He was portrayed as the "evil twin" anyway.
