We seriously do need a scene in which Lwaxana actually interacts with her granddaughter.

Oh, are Troi and Riker going to get an earful when they get round to finally taking Natasha to Betazed.

"You went ice-skating with the Andorians, you had plenty of time to actually let me see my only grandchild!"
Are you serious? I was thinking about it lately, that I missed scenes with Lxwaxana and her grandchild. She must be beside herself . Lxwaxana can handle kids.

Yeah, it would be lot of fun to see Luxana again. Have we even heard anything about what she's been up to since he end of the Dominion War?

So the blurb for Sight Unseen is now up.

http://www.thetrekcollective.com/201...lurbs-for.html
In the wake of political upheaval across the United Federation of Planets, Admiral William Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan find themselves in uncertain waters as roles aboard the ship change to reflect a new mandate and a new mission. On orders from Starfleet, Titan sets out toward the edge of Federation space to tackle its latest assignment: to work with an alien species known as the Dinac, who are taking their first steps into the galaxy at large as a newly warp-capable civilization.

But when disaster befalls the Dinac, the Titan crew discovers they have unknowingly drawn the attention of a deadly, merciless enemy—a nightmare from Riker’s past lurking in the darkness. Friendships will be tested to the limit as familiar faces and new allies must risk everything in a fight against an unstoppable invader—or a horrific threat will be unleashed on the galaxy!
Hmm. Lurkers in the darkness from Riker's past? Could Pocket Books be following up on the solanogen-based lifeforms from TNG - "Schisms"? (Star Trek Online portrays them as an Iconian servitor species named the Solanae)
I had the same thought.

If you're making a grammar point, I have no idea what you're pointing at in that post. It looks completely grammatical to me.

If you're not, I have no idea what you're saying.

I think he means that the idea of Titan - and Troi and Natasha specifically - visiting Betazed was part of the simulation. Is there any indication that the ship actually visited Betazed? They were at an orbital station, or at least Riker was, but I don't know if they actually visited the surface. That part was made up. Although I like to think they'd take the opportunity to actually do it, and see Lwaxana.

Oh, haha, right, I forgot that was part of a simulation. Okay, that makes more sense now. Sorry for the misunderstanding if that's what you meant, Dimesdan!

Since met with Deanna and Jean-Luc at the 'hospital' in orbit of Betazed, I would assume that they visited the surface at some point. It's not like they were only there for a few hours.
