Just started this this weekend. I'm on the second or third chapter and so far I'm really enjoying it.

Below average.

A little too much "small universe syndrome" and I never bought Rasmussen's reason for being there.

I have only just started it and am about 100 pages in. I really am not enjoying it so far which is sad. I do hope that I come to enjoy it by the end.

I finished up the book last night. I really enjoyed it. I'm a big fan of Geordi, Guinan, Nog, and Scotty and I thought David McIntee did a great job with all of them. The only issue I had with the book was that I did find the science stuff in the second half a little confusing.
My rating: Above Average.

One of my favourite Trek books in a long time. I really liked Tyler Hunt too, Trek needs more Mancunians in Space.

Pretty much my feelings as well. I liked the first half more than the second half and I gave it the same rating.

The German publisher Cross-Cult has NOT removed IFM from its schedule!

http://www.startrekromane.de/termine...uckt/2013.html

It is slated for December 2013. There's no German title yet.

Yay!

I just wanna see what sort of new cover they come up with!

Oh, and I'm also curious as to what the German for "Gie him the severe Malky" will turn out to be...

Don't get your hopes high - new covers are only done if the originals are not deemed awesome enough. The Titan series has the original covers, for example.

The existing cover for IFM can be considered awesome...
The only change I could see would be adding Captains La Forge and Scott to the cover.

The IFM cover *is* great as-is, yeah...

^ FWIW I've asked on their forum if they have decided yet if there will be a new cover and linked to your post here. We'll see if/when they'll answer.

They've also relvealed their covers for the first four Typhon Pact translation, and a new Muddless cover for the translation of Mudd in Your Eye. You can see them on sited linked to above or at The Trek Collective.

Tell them if they want any input on stuff like suggestions for colloquialisms, I'd be happy to help directly. (I can get by in German, and my wife has a degree in German literature)
