True but I've had a busy week and I thought it was announced and I just missed it somewhere on the list.

Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

Although it's been in the local book shop a few days, I have finally picked up Lost Souls and began reading it this morning and even though I'm up to chapter seven, I'm really rather enjoying it.

Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

i'm 240-some pages in after starting it Monday and loving it.

although the security teams should've had a squad machine gunner to cover the riflemen's reloading and a grenadier might've been helpful. or at least using their hand grenades when facing massed ranks of drones instead of hosing the group and wasting ammo.

I'm just the two hundred page mark! And I was thinking, maybe they also should have some night vision goggles on as then the blue on blue wouldn't have occurred, but Mr Mack, I am loving it so far.

Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

NVG's wouldn't have worked with the energy dampeners. every solution i could think of for stopping blue-on-blue required power. NVGs, some kind of marker light, torches on their rifles, IR beacons...

Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

I have just this second finished Lost Souls and I will endeavour to write up a coherent review of Destiny over the weekend, but for now, I just wish to thank you David for such a wonderfully constructed and executed tale.

Apropos of nothing, but I was just watching WALL-E on DVD, and there's this shot where a bunch of huge cubes of compacted trash are blown out the Axiom's airlock into space, and when I saw that, I couldn't help thinking, "Oh, so that's the origin of the Borg."

Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

so, with the 63 billion death toll, is Mack still the biggest muder merchant going, or does Keith beat him with his MyrU tale?

surely KRAD is the winner for Most Series Regulars Dead in his MyrU tale...

^ Haven't read any MyrU stories yet but have a few books. Which story are you referring to? I'd like to look it up.

EDIT: I misread. "MyrU" is clearly Myriad Universes and not "mirror universe" which I thought at first. Gottit!

You all lose out to Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, who wiped out all of existence in the Millennium trilogy.
