Re: LE: One Constant Star by David R. George III Review Thread (Spoile

I checked, and I can't find any references to Captain Sulu or the Excelsior in any novels or comics set between 2308 and 2319. But the frame story of the first original Captain Sulu audiobook, Transformations, is set in 2314 according to Memory Beta.

MB also says that Stargazer: Enigma mentions Crajjik being the captain of Excelsior in 2308, rather than its first officer as in this novel. But that's a reference to something that happened 25 years before Enigma, so maybe some character misremembered something?
And there are such things like temporary captaincy or so. I´m not familiar with all of the Stargazer novels. And in the end it is not too relevant. DRG III is still an expert for the Sulus and I´m looking forward to seeing them in future adventures .

I wonder if David R. George III read Burning Dreams before finalizing One Constant Star. I would sure like to know if he figured that Burning Dreams was ignorable in favor of One Constant Star or if he figured that Hikaru Sulu's Excelsior in 2320 could be Excelsior (NCC-21445). Or something else.

^ That's also been my own personal fix for this since last summer, basically -- that TNG Okudagram which gave a different registry-number (NCC-21145) allows for Hikaru Sulu to still potentially be captaining a vessel named Excelsior in 2320, if one chooses.

Was just checking Burning Dreams, and the only specific thing mentioned in that novel is that Sulu's starship is Excelsior-class, not that it was necessarily the same one commissioned in 2285, so there's some fudgeability there.

Naturally, the MMO takes a different tack, having the original, century-old Excelsior surviving into that era and operating right alongside the NCC-21145 Excelsior, which contradicts One Constant Star, but that game's always been in its own continuity anyway, so it doesn't bother me.

Finally got around to reading this, gave it above average for the character work, but only slightly. Agreed with a lot of the praise and complaints it got here.

Anyone else raise an eyebrow at the fact that during the extremely delicate operation involving the shuttles raising the portal near the middle of the book, that when one of the shuttles fails they didn't have a single backup shuttle ready to go to take it's place? Or any contingency plans, at all, for such an easily expected event?

Tut-tut, I am very disappointed in this lack of foresight.

(Yeah, I get DRGIII wanted a dramatic moment with the Enterprise rushing in at the last minute, but still )
