I believe the Eugenics Wars novels established that Gary Seven and Roberta Lincoln retrieved them.

Agreed. You don't want to see him chicken out.

Because then the novel would have to be called Fowl Deeds Will Rise.

They're likely sitting in a family-heirloom trophy case in Janeway's ready room, time-looped like Kirk's birthday-glasses.

Quick question about the novel, Greg:

You mentioned on Trek.FM that the book brings back a character from the TV series, one Kirk hasn't encountered in twenty years, and that this person appeared in an episode that was less-cheerful in tone than others.

Had a few theories as to whom this might be, after quickly scrolling down the list of TOS episodes; right now, my short-list of potentials includes Capt. Ronald Tracey, Ben Finney, and (yes) Dr. Janice Lester (deliberately skipping over "superpowered" characters such as Charlie X and the Gorgon, owing to the novel's synopsis).

Would've included Garth of Izar, except another novel and at least one DC Comics story arc have already dealt with him in the movie era. Any further hints you can drop us?

Not a Starfleet officer, but not an alien.

It's Elias Sandoval, isn't it?

Sorry, he was the only random character I could think of off the top of my head that fit the criteria.

Nope!

Here's another hint: The title of the book may be something of a clue . . ..

Fascinating. Does this mean Kevin Riley will make an appearance?

Riley was around as recently as the previous year (2287) during the events surrounding the Cetacean Probe's return (and journeyed across the galaxy with the Probe and the Enterprise-A), plus of course there's his history with Lenore and Kodos.

So color me intrigued by this.
