Definitely downloading tomorrow. After a reading a string of 24th century books and The Rings of Time, I'm in the mood for more TOS.

I thought about staying up until I can download it, but then I might not be able to sleep at all...

This leads me to believe that Pocket (or at least DRGIII) hasn't forgotten that many of us really want to read the Ascendants storyline. Perhaps it will finally happen soon, and the backstory will now be even fuller.

Well, did order it just now. Wasn't sure, since TOS and the 5YM don't really interest me that much. But it's DRGIII, and with that little spoiler I'm intrigued enough to want to read this.

Mine should arrive tomorrow, apparently. I'm glad at least one of these TOS books will satisfy my continuity needs. Enduring until July will be a little easier now .

Re: TOS: Allegiance in Exile by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

This was definitely my favorite David R. George book in several years. My only complaint is about the structure. Each third was good, but I think it loses something read in quick succession, rather than waiting (and reading other tales of the Enterprise?) in-between each "episode".

I see what the current title means (twice over). But can anybody see how the contract title of The Red Ensign could have applied to the book? Because I'm not seeing it.

Could you speak as to how significantly The Famous Spoiler factors into the story?

From the comments various authors have made about the practice, the contractual working titles are sometimes just placeholders that don't have any specific relevance to the story at all. They're just something to put on the paperwork.

True, and that could be what this was. I was wondering if there was some significance that I was missing that someone else saw, though.

I think these Facebook posts by DRG III indicate that it never had any significance.

Thanks! Since I just got done with the Cold Equations and am quite in the mood for an introspective piece I think that settles my reading order decision ... *heads to online store*

My copy should appear in time to start by the weekend. How "fast" a read is it?
