Re: Star Trek: DTI: Watching The Clock Review Thread

Christopher, awesome book! One of the best Trek-books I've ever read. Loved how you tied everything together about the Temporal Cold War, loved the characters, loved the story structure. Everything about it was great and thanks so much for finally answering all the questions Enterprise left hanging for the last half-decade.

Another outstanding for me. Loved the way everything was so gracefully tied together, and rather appreciated the interpretation of the 29th century TIC (and the implied evolution). I never liked the whole 'arrested for crimes you're going to commit' angle, so was pleased to see this tackled the way it was.

I hope we see the DTI again.

We will. Christopher is writing another one, which is supposedly set during Kirk's second five-year mission. It's called Forgotten History and is supposed to be out in late April/early May 2012. He even mentioned that the framing story will be set in the 24th century and feature Dulmer and Lucsly

^Actually Forgotten History covers both the TOS era and the post-TMP era, and even some stuff in between.

Re: Star Trek: DTI: Watching The Clock Review Thread

I love that you post here.. xD

I was reading the book, hadnt looked at the author yet, and I was actually wondering if whoever had written it posted at TrekBBS. Then I looked, and I was like "oh, well yep."

Does this book deal with time travels outside of the movies and series?

It does an excellent job making sense of how we can exist linearly despite time travel and alternate universes. It isn't just good trek, it is great science fiction in general.

I didn't even want to read this book but a friend convinced me to and it turned out being one of the best I've read. I'd consider it a "must read" for Trek fans.

Any chance we might see some of the temporal agencies used by the other powers? I smiled when I read about the Temporal Assessment Group being mentioned since I really liked the LUG "All Our Yesterdays" Sourcebook. That combined with the Chronological Defense Corps was fascinating to me about competing agencies over time travel.
