I agree on this. I much prefer ships names not named for a particular person or place.

I really like seeing both, particularly ships named after fictitious people and places. It's a reminder that the Federation is its own culture with its own history and its own geography, not just America In Space.

Agreed. There's nothing wrong with a little diversity in a ship's name.

If anyone really wants the answer to that question, I recommend you head over to the Raise the Dawn thread, it has been answered.

Downloaded this and Raise the Dawn on my Nook this morning. I'm about about a page into this one so far, and couldn't be anymore excited to read these books.

Waited until Raise The Dawn was out to finish this one. Damn fine stuff. I loved the way he gathered and reframed the previous Typhon Pact novels - this is exactly the sense of narrative drive and interconnectedness I felt they were missing.

Plus, this novel alone could've been four, with whole novels devoted to the Robinson and Enterprise missions, but I enjoy the pace TrekLit is moving at these days. I'm worried it's ultimately unsustainable, as major plot developments happen really quickly, but I couldn't be happier with the ride as it is now.

I'm starting Raise The Dawn in 30 seconds. Man, what a cliffhanger.

Just finished this book myself and waiting to start on Raise the Dawn. Mr. George, terrific book sir. A book that finally puts together two of my most favorite crews.
