Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I've been meaning to ask, will the Vanguard Declassified novellas be moving the story forward or will they be flashbacks? Or both? The article made it sound like at least some of them will be flashbacks.

Yes.

Saw the magazine today. Nice update and I like the cover of the Titan novel in TTP.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I thought the cover was pretty cool too. Although I keep hoping that we'll get to see more of the non-TV characters on more of the covers.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

I read the description for 'Paths of disharmony'.

I think it describes half the book (which most likely is as follows):
After the borg genocide, with the andorian population at an all times low, a solution to their reproductive problem is reconsidered - the reduction from 4 genders to 2. Of course, this causes social strife in andorian society.
Furthermore, the andorian-rest of the federation relations are worsening, what with a third of Andor being vaporised on Starfleet's watch.

In these conditions, a summit on Andor is convened, the Enterprise attending.
But a surprise guest appears as well - the tholians, who offer the andorians a cure to their reproductive crisis (while keeping their traditional 4 genders). In exchange, the tholians ask the andorians to leave the hippy federation and join the typhon pact, an alliance kindred with the warrior nature of the andorians.

Re: Massive New Trek Lit Update in Star Trek Magazine

^^ Man, how whiny does that make the Andorians sound? "Wah, you might have faced down the biggest Borg invasion fleet ever seen, you might have saved the galaxy from an event that killed over 60 billion people, you might have even done it in a way that removed the Borg threat forever and kept the Federation alive as a viable entity. But did you do it quick enough stop Andoria getting a few scrathes?? No you did not!"

Six months out from publication. That might be a new record for someone dismissing my work before even bothering to read it.

Didn't sound like he was dismissing it to me. Mis-characterizing? Yes. But he never said he wasn't going to read it...

When did I dismiss it? I have it pre-ordered and am quite looking forward to reading it.

I just found the blurb, the line about a third of the population dieing under Star Fleets watch particularly, to make them sound a little whiny. Not a criticism or anything, just an observation.

MNM,
There seems to be a misunderstanding.

What I posted above is a synthesis based on the latest blurb (at memory alpha), previous blurbs (on this site) and various bits of information, mostly from DS9 Relaunch.

Man, that sounds like a really obnoxiously snot-nosed dismissal of a book that won't be out for six months, on the sole basis of an unofficial blurb.

Not a criticism or anything. Just an observation.
