I (and I know of others) struggled to get through. Took me a few attempts to finish it, and I only did so because I hate leaving books unfinished. But personally, I felt it sucked.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

Slightly OT, but does anyone know if there are any stories set during the TNG era in the YE alternate reality?

There might be one in the Myriad Unverse books, but I don't remember any.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

^ No, there's not a myriad story about the "real" Ent-C, although one of the plot threads in Q-Squared takes place in an alternate universe which features a version of it.

Hmm, I was going to say that it could've produced a good Myriad Universes tale, maybe something fleshing out the backstory of the war. But maybe the fact that Q Squared had already done a "nearly-YE" timeline is the reason MyrU didn't do one.

It's awkward for me - the first quarter-to-third focuses almost exclusively on characters who, while important to the story, are exclusive to the novel, as opposed to the two characters we know who actually were on the Enterprise-C. I get why, of course, making an audience connection for these new characters, but it starts out not feeling like what I thought it was going to be, a story about the Enterprise-C. But it picked up after about a quarter/a third of the way in, and I enjoyed the rest of it.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

I started in on "Well of Souls" but I couldn't finish it, I found it almost Myrshak/Culbreathian in its sheer impenetrableness.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

After Y-E was there any interest in stories or books about the Enterprise-c?. I mean "Well of Souls" I had to try really hard to finish it. The crew of the ship was interesting but in more of multiple book way

Yeah, I've always been rather shocked that there aren't more Enterprise-C stories.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

I would love some more Enterprise B & C stories. I know there are a lot of series out there competing for the few publication spots each year, so maybe some stories in an anthology.

That was my thoughts. I could have connected to the characters and understood what was going on alot better if this was book two or three of a series.

I'm always wishing for more anthologies. It's a great way to get tons of stories that would probably never be made if they had to be a full sized story.

Looks like the Enterprise-C is a bit underrepresented in Trek lore.
So is the E-B. Let's see, the B is in Generations, The Captain's Daughter, Engines of Destiny, "Shakedown," Serpents Among the Ruins, "Iron and Sacrifice," and IDW's Spock: Reflections and Captain's Log miniseries. The C is in "Yesterday's Enterprise," "Hour of Fire," Well of Souls, and Vulcan's Heart, and a log entry from an E-C officer is one of the interludes in A Singular Destiny (between chapters 13 & 14).

Okay, I guess the C has been featured less than the B.
The B was also in my Alien Spotlight: Klingons comic.
