My first post on this thread should make it clear that it is a tangent on the threat title (one of many previous ones, in this forum).
If you have a problem with this - you must have a problem with a LOT of threads here.
It's more than just a tangent -- it comes straight out of nowhere and has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic at hand. I don't understand why you're bringing up the question of what aspects of books from authors who are "on the out" might be contradicted here instead of the actual threads dedicated to the topic of authors being on the out.

It's the equivalent of bringing up the new James Bond movie in a thread about Les Misérables but ignoring the actual Skyfall thread.

EDIT: Sci's right, and since I've remembered how pointless it is to argue with you I'm done.

So - talking about the future alive/dead prospects of a canon character is not a tangent - indeed, exactly on the subject of this thread for you, yes, Sci?
OK.

I want to apologize for my lack of self control and dragging this thread farther off topic than it should have gotten. Sorry.

So, Jaresh-Inyo died in Articles. And of course, McCoy died in Crucible.

Read the post I already repeated once. And then the thread you claim to know.

Also, you went from "we don't know for a fact that that is why they chose to ignore IFM" to "All we know for sure is that instead of trying to explain away the stuff with Ogawa, Barclar, and the La Forge/Brahms pairing they decided to ignore them." in the same post.
'don't know for a fact' and 'we know for sure' are contradictory, JD.

Your 'see no evil hear no evil speak no evil' just went into high gear.
Who are you trying to convince, JD? Yourself?

Her second Treklit demise, after Ann Crispin's Sarek.

Oh, and Trelane died in Peter David's Q-Squared.

I would urge you to edit your post to include a spoiler box.


Those books are eight years old at this point.
While it's nice to include a spoiler, it's not mandatory after this length of time.

(I'm one of the mods in here now, BTW.)

Minor nitpick - that scene was actually in The Soul Key. He first reappeared in F&O, though.

For the record, Ed has been editing Star Trek novels since at least 2005. He took over editing my Khan books after John Ordover departed. So he's not exactly "new."
