Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

IIRC the Narada's upgrade is based on reverse-engineered Borg tech, so it might not be Borg itself, just a Romulan knock-off.

Ergo: Yes. It is possible.

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

Starfleet Intelligence recruits a pair of genetically enhanced agents: Dr. Julian Bashir, of station Deep Space 9, and Sarina Douglas, a woman whose talents Bashir helped bring to fruition, and whom Bashir thinks of as his long-lost true love.
I feel like letting out a Klingon Death Scream.

(counts to ten, does some "plexing")

Okay...now:

Captain Ezri Dax and her crew on the U.S.S. Aventine play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a Typhon Pact fleet that stands between them and the safe retrieval of Bashir and Douglas from hostile territory.
All right...that makes it easier to swallow.

Mr. Mack...I will see how this works out...and I wonder if this will turn into a possible triangle--Ezri/Sarina/Bashir. I think I'd love to see that--especially if it "knocks some sense" into Ezri, and gets rid of that attitude she'd had towards Bashir throughout the relaunch. (I actually wrote an alternate version of Ezri's "Come to I'nora" moment for the FanFic forum....)

But I sincerely hope that this book does NOT close any doors for Ezri. She and Julian have suffered enough from that break-up. For goodness sake, it's bad enough that we get the "aw, gee, the Bashir/Ezri feelings weren't REAL, it was just a redo of Worf/Ezri--just a by-product of the Jadzia/Bashir feelings".

But NOW--to have THIS happen!



I'm sorry, I'm just...a little worked up about that break-up.

Seriously...I'll look forward to this. But, if some details of this...relationship...were possible...?

(And...FWIW, I think the "moments" between Ezri and Julian are reaonable rivalry for the last scene in "Chrysalis", IMANSHO. )

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

A chapter in A Singular Destiny detailed a top-secret Starfleet effort to reverse-engineer leftover Borg technology. Whether that effort bears fruition or causes massive mayhem (or both) is up to the writers of future books. But the possibility has been left open.

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

All righty, Mr. Mack...question:

Is it late enough in the game for some info?

No real spoilers, of course, but--will Ezri and Julian's past romance bear on the story in any shape, matter, or form?



(Gee, should we start a "SPOILER" thread for that, or what? Mods, what say you?)

Re: Official Final Typhon Pact blurbs

I could be wrong, but I doubt Mr. Mack will provide much in the way of truly spoilery info this far out, if for no other reason than to watch people squirm for the next 6 months or so.

It's what I'd do

So we're not allowed to tell them that's written in the format of a series of emails between Julian and Ezri's grandchildren. During the divorce proceedings.

No, Shore Leave's the point where we reveal that it's written in LOLspeak.

Eh...the grandchildrens' proceedings, right?

RIGHT?

CURSE YOU!!! CURSE...YOU...ALL...TO--

(Hey--what's the space equivalent of Davy Jones's Locker? Anyone venture a guess?)

Is this the same book that's being released in serial form on Twitter?

Davy Jones Locker equivalent. That'd be Captain Kirk's quarters with the lights out.

^Ah...so...that's torment?

Certainly not for the ladies. But even for guys, it's just...odd.

Unless it's the Evil Kirk, belting at the top of his lungs: "I'm Captain Kirk! IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'M CAPTAIN KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRK!!!"

Divorce proceedings? Wow, was this because Ezri was Facebook friends w/ Worf & Julian found out? I did hear it isn't a good idea to friend a past love, trouble always ensues.
