^ I think RPJOB was referring to a ship described in the series' fifth novel, Precipice. In a scene featuring T'Prynn and Pennington, on page 74, last paragraph:
“No, Mister Pennington. We are going to steal one.” She wasted no time selecting a ship. “That one,” she said, nodding at a teardrop-shaped craft with a protruding pod on the starboard side.
Ha!

I missed that entierly! Nicely done.

And why is a reference to Star Wars geekier than a whole novel about Star Trek?
Because if you know that much about two geeky franchises, it's geek²!

Re: TNG: Immortal Coil by Jeffrey Lang Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I wanted to read this book every since I read "Cold Equations." I finally got around to it and I really liked it. I wish I had read it first. I like how it tied together event from TOS and TNG. The use of the M-5 computer was a nice touch. Great characters, great story. A fun read.

Re: TNG: Immortal Coil by Jeffrey Lang Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Just interviewed Jeff about the book on Literary Treks and it's out now! I have to say, just read this book and love it! To me it's a watershed book in Trek lit and really made me like Data, a character that I have never been that keen on. Well done!

I just listened to your latest podcast.You had a great discussion with Jeffrey Lang about Immortal Coil. It's one of my favorite Data Novels.

Thanks so much! I agree with you, personally my favorite Data novel so far, but I have not read Jeff's newest so could be even better!
