Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

Sad to see Vanguard come to an end, but I don't mind the slots in Pocket Books' schedule it will create. By the time it ends, Vanguard will have had five books released in three years. I wish DS9 had that kind of release schedule.

Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

I'm sorry to hear that it's ending, but at least it will be complete and not left hanging due to any kind upheaval, schedule changes, etc. Looking forward to the finale.

Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

I was a bit saddened when I heard the news today about Vanguard and those last pages are going to be very hard to read. Thanks to David, Kevin and Dayton, and Marco who did such a wonderful job with the series. I'm sure that you will write a conclusion that will be fitting and memorable.

Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

Like many others have said, I've really enjoyed this series. And while I'll be sad to see it end, having it all wrapped up in a carefully-planned conclusion has a definite attraction.

I'd wondered if the Vanguard series wouldn't have to end or change drastically after reading Paths of Disharmony. When it talked about the Shedai research being locked away in a super-secure facility with the (electronic file) key being carefully hidden, that had to mean the mad race to unlock the secrets had to have ended one way or another. The meta-genome was so revolutionary that it should have changed a lot of things over the last hundred years, but it hadn't. So, something had to change...

That's one of the dangers of writing a prequel. There's always the question of why the new story wasn't known in the earlier stories that are set chronologically afterward. Like Chief O'Brien, temporal mechanics gives me a headache...

Not exactly a monumental change but wasn't it stated somewhere along the line that this was where dermal regeneration technology came from?

^And ever since Carol Marcus was brought into the series, I've been convinced the TMG also played apart in the creation of the Genesis Device.

^ I'm pretty sure that's been explicitly stated, if not in-universe then by one of the authors around here.

Ok. I couldn't remember if it was ever actually stated as a fact.

Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

On the other hand (ok, turtles don't have hands... other paw? other foot?) I think having some series that definitively end is (a) good for us readers, because we get the entire story arc and (b) good for enticing new readers.

Because (a) I'm still peeved that CoE just up and vanished on us without a real proper ending (though the two TerriO entries at the end were good) and (b) I keep trying to get folks to read TrekLit, and it's easier when I can say "Oh, there's just a few books in this series, it doesn't go on for 50 books and you don't have to know all the backstory to enjoy them".

And would explain why there is another Starbase 47 later on.

Is there an ending for Titan as well?

Re: Blurb for What Judgments Come

I don't see why there would be, it still seems to be pretty popular, and there's no arc that we have to worry about dragging on for to long.
