I like the cover. It's simple, but effective.

Time to bring back Kirk, the way it should have been!
Whilst I don't generally like resurrections, its got my vote...
I'd vote for this as well

We've already had Nexus-Kirk retcons in Engines of Destiny and Crucible: Kirk, as well as a few Strange New Worlds stories. So that's already been done. And it can't be the only story the Nexus can lend itself to.

Ah, although they're somewhere in my pile, I've read none of these...

Yeah but Captain Kirk fell down a cliff and died, that traversty needs to be redressed in the mainstream continuity of trek-lit

It really doesn't.

Kirk's time is long done. Leave him be.

QFT. I'd have said the same (well, not "long" done) about Data myself. And Janeway. And even Sisko.

Kirk would never say that himself, he'd fight his way off that rock.

I disagree. Spock is more important to the franchise than Kirk is.

Of course, now the main continuity can't use either of 'em (beyond 2387). Figures.

Re: The Stuff of Dreams cover

Bringing Kirk back to the main continuity isn't a great idea. It could be done well though and I'd still really like it to happen. Sorry !

I think Spock has gone for the duration of the JJverse movies, but I'd not be surprised if we got (a) Spock back at some point. After all, Spock Prime and JJSpock have melded if I recall correctly...

Wasn't that the point of the Shatner books?

Yes, but they aren't in mainstream continuity. I'd like to see Kirk back properly...

But that makes the Shatnerverse books rather superfluous, doesn't it? Wouldn't it make more sense to just have the Shatnerverse Kirk cross universes and come into the mainstream TrekLit universe?

I'd prefer to have new Shatnerverse books that deal with things in the mainstream continuity, even if they weren't actually written by William Shatner and the Reeves-Stevenses. You could have the cover have some kind of blurb like "STAR TREK - As envisioned by William Shatner!" or something to clue people in and still get his name on the cover.
