James, Do you cover the events that happened in your e Book? I forgot the title
You mean The Stuff of Dreams? That's a TNG story, it doesn't connect up with the events in Sight Unseen.

Interesting. Amazon doesn't even have it listed anywhere.

EDIT: Just checked: This isn't yet scheduled.

Unless James knows something we don't.

He does. He's already said that it will drop in 2015, most likely in the fall.

Re: Some news on the new Titan novel, spoilery ofcourse.....

Well... I guess I'll be that guy.

Considering Swallow's Synthesis is one of my favorite Trek novels, I'm happy to see him continuing the series.

But the entire Strange New Worlds format was the draw for me, personally. I'm not terribly interested in seeing Titan become like TNG, running diplomatic missions and the like. Not that it may even turn out like that, but that's just the impression I get. We'll see.

Now, the new novel isn't out yet so I can't pass judgment on it (and I'll pick it up for sure), but this news has really dampened my enthusiasm for the series.

Just my $0.02, I'm probably in the minority, and certainly no disrespect to Swallow.

Hey, thanks. That's always nice to hear.

Yeah, you will. Star Trek: Titan isn't going to stop being about exploration, and while there will be diplomatic missions (John Jackson Miller's Absent Enemies is just that, for example), Riker and company will still be boldly going. Sight Unseen features a fair abount of new life and new civilizations in it. What's going to change is focus, location and some character relationships - but it's still going to be "TOS for the TNG era", which is exactly how Marco Palmieri described the series in the launch document back in '05.

^ Interesting to hear. I thought that maybe now that the TNG novels are supposed to focus more on exploration, that maybe Titan would take over TNG's previous niche... they would essentially swap formats.

Thanks for the info!

Thank you very much for the clarification. Again, no offense was meant, and you've alleviated some of my concerns.

Looking forward to Sight Unseen. I wouldn't mind if Takedown ends with Riker demoted like Kirk after IV and sent on a long term deep exploration mission to get away from it all.
