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

Star Trek: Destiny Trilogy 3.5/4--I give it a lot of credit for its ambition. It certainly held my interest and is above-average compared to most of the other trek I've read recently.

I wouldn't put it in my list of favorites, but I'm definitely interested in reading about the after-math.

Note: I haven't read the three Destiny threads yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing what everybody has posted.

*lol*
I'd see him captaining a SCE ship, probably.

Seconded! Tho I suppose the Destiny follow up is kinda Articles II.....

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

Very late to the party here, but I just wanted to tell David Mack and everyone else that this story, and particular this installment, was *wonderful*. When I finished Lost Souls, I literally said "Wow." Out loud.

Finally, a logical explanation for the Borg, their combination of arrogance and imperfection, and even more finally, a reasonable conclusion to the Borg mega-saga! Add that to relieving Picard of the haunting he's experienced since becoming Locutus (which, in a reference that may make sense to other Legion of Super Heroes fans, evoked the Lar Gand/Eltro Gand explanation, in a good way), and even the devastation the Federation et al suffered could not detract from my happiness with this book.

Thanks, David. {ProfJonathan}

Finished this trilogy a short moment ago, all I can say is "Wow", it has definitely moved into my favourite list. Thank you, David Mack, for the adventure.

In case you're asking because you haven't read the book, I will spoiler-code the answer...

^ Except for the fact that Kiona Thayer is described as a brunette. But I guess that's what wigs are for...

Well, she probably didn't have hair for much longer.

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

When the Borg were transformed back to their original races I hoped that she would have been alive. Then I thought that she could not have lived for all that time even with Borg implants.

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

I've been lurking in here for awhile. WAY back somewhere the illustrious and talented David Mack and some fine spacefarers were discussing if there was anything written about synthehol and pregnant women and I just happened to be rereading Christopher L. Bennett's "Greater than the Sum".

On pg 336 he says "(fortunately, synthehol was safe for pregnant women to consume)"

Suppose that makes it so.
