Whoops, I knew that when I wrote the book but I got it wrong in the annotations. It's fixed now.

I totally agree. However, Christopher's annotations had an error. I was just telling him. Also, Christopher, I notice you didn't change the thing about Seleneans.

Christopher,

Just finished DTI. Very, very impressive book. Expert weaving together of all the contradictory information about time travel, and an even better job in making the DTI characters people you care about. I can't even narrow down all the things I loved in this book. Thank you.

Outstanding! Best Trek since Destiny!

I am going to the annotations next and the answer to this question is probably there, but did I catch a reference to the proposed animated Trek series from a few years back that never got developed?

^That's an oblique reference. There's a more direct one later.

Re: Star Trek: DTI: Watching The Clock Review Thread

Was that specifically stated to be in our future, or one possible future?

I've read six books since then and my memory is a little fuzzy on the details.

looked like just one possible future, as they were quick to point out that that little side detour had been contained to it's own side universe, and not part of the main timeline they all shared...

Re: Star Trek: DTI: Watching The Clock Review Thread

Just finished Watching the Clock last Friday, and I think it's way, way above average bordering on outstanding.

The fates of the Bozeman's crew and Clare Raymond were among the things I liked best about the novel, very nice emotional touches amidst all of that time-bending awesomeness.

Highly recommended reading.
