Cold Equations by David Mack???

Ok I know I mentioned that all these new books made my head spin trying to figure out what comes out when, I was just about to, finally, get out my trek books on a shelf. I loaded up the wiki on star trek novels and I saw a new series featuring the TNG crew.

Cold Equations (2012-2013)
Star Trek: Cold Equations is a trilogy authored by David Mack. Featuring the crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Cold Equations Book 1: The Persistence of Memory; 30 October 2012 ?
Cold Equations Book 2: Silent Weapons; 27 November 2012 ?
Cold Equations Book 3: The Body Electric; 13 January 2013 ?

Looks like for me one a month now until at least next January.

Re: Cold Equations by David Mack???

From Mack's blog:

Book One of the trilogy, which is written and now with the editor, is The Persistence of Memory, and it will put the Enterprise crew at the forefront of an effort to stop the Typhon Pact from exploiting stolen Soong-type android technology as a weapon of war.

In Book Two, Silent Weapons, Captain Picard and his crew must protect Federation President Nan Bacco when it becomes clear she has been targeted for assassination. However, in the course of their mission, the Enterprise crew discovers that there might be an even greater conspiracy lurking behind the assassination plot.

In Book Three, The Body Electric, the Enterprise crew is brought to the center of the Milky Way by an old friend — Traveler and former shipmate Wesley Crusher — to try to stop a massive sentient machine whose mysterious labors threaten the future of every civilization in the galaxy.

"The Body Electric" sounds like a dance music CD.

David Mack did talk about the upcoming books last week in his trekradio interview. If you are interested(?), you can listen to it here: http://www.trekradio.net/on-demand

I guess you're not a Ray Bradbury fan. Or a Walt Whitman fan. ("I Sing the Body Electric" is a Whitman poem from Leaves of Grass, and the title of a Bradbury story that was also made into a Twilight Zone episode.)

Wonder if this is false god centre, cytherian centre, or a new centre centre.

Hm..... Not to sure about the Wesley Crusher bit, but who knows. David Mack has never really disappointed me. Even Zero Sum Game, which I don't really like that much, had some good moments.

Dunno about that one...can't think of anything I liked about it at all. I do normally like his stuff though.

I'm glad to finally know what Wesley has been up to. I'm thoroughly intrigued by what Mack has said about the story.

I'm one of the few people who actually doesn't mind Wesley, especially the last few years before he left the Enterprise, so I'm really looking forward to his appearance.

I'm very excited by these synopses and their implications.

I for one will be excited to see Wes. I guess this will be the first time since his appearances in the A Time To series IIRC?
