I have a question about the timeframe of "The Unhappy Ones." The historian's note reads, "This story takes place in 2269, prior to the destruction of the Klingon battle-cruiser at Beta XII-A ("Day of the Dove" TOS)." I'm assuming that it would have to be before Day of the Dove because Kang's vessel is a complete loss (I think) in that episode. Although he could be in a new ship by the time of this story. But Memories Alpha and Beta both have Day of the Dove in 2268. Also, I thought I noticed a reference KRAD made to the animated Tribble episode, which is generally accepted to have happened after the live action episodes.

I guess I was just wondering if there was any kind of typo in the historian's note. Not a huge deal, just something that bothers the OCD timeliner in me.

(I apologize if this has been discussed already and I missed it. I reviewed the thread before posting and didn't see anything about it.)
I was wondering that myself.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins Discuss/ Grade

Is Seven Deadly Sins generally recommended by folks around here? I do like the anthologies generally.

^ I loved it. Especially the Klingon story.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins Discuss/ Grade

I'd recommend it. On the whole it was enjoyable, though I didn't personally really like the Borg or MU stories.

I'm in the process of reading it right now. I'm up to the Borg story so far (I skipped the MU story after just a few pages, it just wasn't doing anything for me, but I might go back to it later), and I've really enjoyed the stories I've read so far. I would definitely recommend it.

In my opinion, all the stories were at least good, and some were excellent.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins Discuss/ Grade

Is the MU story focused on the MU Sisko?

Yes. I didn't particularly like it, because it fell short, to me, of what it was supposed to present and deal with. Maybe it's just me, but that was one of the dullest and most emotionless of the stories (ironic when one considers the emotion that it's supposed to deal with is lust). At the end, I honestly couldn't really tell you much about what happens, except for what one of my friends called "the gay scene". (Note, that's their phrase, not mine).

Same with Revenant, pretty much.

Obviously, others are allowed their opinions, and mine isn't any more right or wrong than others, but it surprises me that more people didn't like Revenant. I thought it was a very gripping story—one that I found it very difficult to put down (although I will admit that the ending didn't entirely work for me...).

Maybe it's just because it was a new Borg story right after so much trouble was gone through to get rid of the Borg in Destiny.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins Discuss/ Grade

Me too. Plus, and I'm honestly not really sure, I just didn't care what happened to the characters. None of them connected, none of them really stood out, and I pretty much went "Wow, that kinda sucked" and moved on and forgot about it.

Yeah, I really liked "Revenant," too. I thought it was a good, creepy horror story.

The Cardassian story was probably my favorite, though.

Re: Seven Deadly Sins Discuss/ Grade

I agree about the Cardassian story, for sure. But, full disclosure, I already love Cardassians and Romulans to begin with.

Your Pakled story was excellent, too. And, apart from the Borg story, that one was probably the one I was most skeptical about.
