Btw, ENT featured Arik Soong in the Augment trilogy after Immortal Coil was written. They do not contradict one another, or do they?
Nothing I can really think of and I'm almost to the end of the book.

I dont see how they would, at least not in any big way. At most, Immortal Coil would assume Noonien's quest to create artificial life is his own, not one begun by his father(?) Arik.

I've also pulled it from the shelf again, as I'll likely be buying PoM next thursday. I wasn't too crazy about Immortail Coil during my first read - certainly a minority opinion at the time - but I'm finding that I'm enjoying it more this time around.

One thing about this novel that I appreciated was the sense of humour, some of it approaching the level of meta-humour. The example of Galor IV, with its governor wondering whether it was the mere presence of the Enterprise that triggered planetary emergencies, was one example.

Cool! I might have to move this up to the top of the line for my stuff to buy. Would I miss anything if I the last 3 or 4 Typhon Pact books, and moved on to this?

Re: TNG: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack Review Thread (Spoile

It's funny, for a democratic body ran by a civilian government. It seems Starfleet has an awful lot of power to come in and take over without even consulting the government. Like a battalion commander shutting down Ohio without first consulting elected officials.

Not a complaint about the book, just an observation about our utopian Federation.

I don't think so. The first book, at least, has virtually nothing to do with the Typhon Pact storyline.
