I'll join the chorus and state that Forgotten History is among the Trek books I'm most anticipating this year. I am also very excited about the time frame selected for this novel as well. Christopher has stated he'd like to maybe move on to something else after this one but I still uphold my suggestion from the Watching the Clock thread that I would seriously LOVE LOVE LOVE an Uptime book starring Jenna Noi. As much as I liked Garica and the other characters, and obviously our two stars, I fell in love with Jenna Noi as a character. One of the best characters I think Chris has handled as a writer. So fascinating and I loved her banter with the DTI gang. So yeah I know I'll be holding out for the possibility of an Uptime book still
Oh yeah, I'll second this one.

It would be neat and quite difficult I'd imagine to do a Trek book from the Uptime perspective. but I'd love it.
Me too.

I believe the two Temporal Investigations agents reference that Kirk had seventeen separate violations on his record in the DS9 episode. Think we'll get a complete accounting of those, drawn from both Canon and lit sources?

No, I left room for a few more. Who knows, after all, when another writer may come up with another Kirk time travel story?

Makes sense, considering Cox just did it a couple of months ago.

Wow, that's a very long excerpt. That's over a fifth of the book.

I absolutely cannot wait to grab this book! I've been wanting more DTI novels since reading Watching the Clock!

I honoustly can't say what novel I'm looking out for more this year. With Storming Heaven already released, I thought at first that this year in Trek could not give me anything as good or better. But with the new DTI, the DRGIII duology, a new Voyager by Beyer, a new McCormick!!! And ofcourse a David Mack trilogy.

We are being spoiled in 2012 people!!
We've been lucky that's for sure. I'm so flipping behind, only half-way through That Which Divides & What Jusgements Come. Need to lock myself away for a weekend to catch up.
