Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I see "The Fall" actually isn't waiting for that season. On iTunes there is The Fall item by David Mack available; and, on Kobo there is The Fall item for preorder by David George III. At least I guess that's what it seems. The books shall probably be everywhere in a short while. I got a new smart phone - another medium for Star Trek. Cyberspace, the final frontier.

TNG #21: Chains of Command. Run of the mill early 90's TNG novel from a one and done writing team. Interesting alien species but story falls short in execution.

DS9 #19 The Tempest by Susan Wright. Not bad to have a story with a little more focus on Keiko O'Brien.

Just finished Star trek Vanguard: What judgements come.
I was a little disappointed with this book, to be specific with the the Shedai.
When you have a very powerful enemy who are responsible for a lot of death and destructions and you don't have much or anything against them, don't experiment with them until you have a proper weapon against them.
I hope that the last book of the otherwise great serie is better

Q Squared. It's one of my favorite TNG novels as it brings in Trelaine and Q and alternate timelines and I just think it's so cool. I think I've read it about three times now.

"These Are The Voyages: Season One" by Marc Cushman with Susan Osborn. This truly is a remarkable book.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Fable: Blood Ties by Peter David yesterday. I found it surprisingly enjoyable considering I was disappointed by the game it's based on, Fable III; although I did enjoy Peter David's other Fable novel, The Balverine Order, which took place before the game. It had also been a long time since I played the game, and I didn't remember the main character of the book, so I had to look him up online to jog my memory. I was somewhat surprised to see he was voiced by Simon Pegg in the game, which I either didn't remember or never noticed to begin with.

I'm now reading the USS Excalibur story, "Making a Difference" by Mary Scott-Wiecek, from New Frontier: No Limits.

ETA:
Well, I just finished "Making a Difference". That one was really short.

I'm now going to start Star Trek: From History's Shadow by Dayton Ward.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've gotta say that the last few Dayton Ward books that i've picked up have not kept my interest. I've put them down and not gone back. That being said, i just picked up Open Secrets and i'm gobbling it up. I wonder what my problem was? Sorry Dayton! This book rocks!
