It's not Trek, but I took advantage of the May the 4th deals and got the digital version of John Jackson Miller's Star Wars: Rebels prequel novel, A New Dawn. Miller is the author of STTTN: Abent Enemies, and STTNG: Takedown.

Wait, the prequel novel has the same title as Episode IV?

Bad Markonian. You are banished from sci-fi fandom for six months.

Not if you call it Episode IV as Markonian did, once you accept that it's the fourth episode it is A New Hope.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I just got a copy of Dayton's TNG: Armageddon's Arrow. Started it, and liking it so far. Did notice a mistake on page 32...it's implied that it's only been 3 years from the events of Destiny, when the historian's note clearly states that this story takes place in January 2386, which is just under 5 years since Destiny, which was is in February 2381. I'm a tad bit nitpicky I guess

Re: Latest acquisition!

Star Trek New Visions #6 "Resistance" by John Byrne.

Perhaps not the best Borg story but to me it was well done while retaining the classic series atmosphere.
Of course it was another 'we'll never say their name' situation but I actually did not mind it that much.

In general these photo novel comics Byrne has been producing turned out better than I first thought they would. I am actually pleasantly surprised.
