New Frontier No Limits.

So Ive been taking my time with this book, Reading one story at a time and stretching it out until Im able to get a copy of Blind Man's Bluff, it was over a year ago that I read Treason so Ive been enjoying having small doses of New Frontier.

I read the Captain Calhoun story, Mac goes to "clean up" Picard's mess from the events of Pegasus. That was a fun story and a nice tie in to Next Generation.

The Shelby story was interesting, seeing the steps she took to connect the dots between Neutral Zone and Q Who, even though to this day, saying that it was the Borg that wiped out the outposts along Federation/Romulan space, makes no sense. Still it is, what it is, and for what it is, that was a good in between story.

I recently finished the Kebron story by David Mack, my favorite so far. Kebron has always been a favorite character of mine, and this was a funny great look back at his early days.

So I see that Robert Greenberger is tackling Lefler next, should be fun!

Re: New Frontier No Limits.

I'm reading this one myself right now. I'm a huge NF fan and Peter David himself suggested I read it at a Vulcon convention in February.

I'm in the Soleta story right now. I enjoyed the Calhoun story as it made an interesting after story to "The Pegasus" and explained what happened to the cloaking device. It is also interesting to see how much more willing Calhoun is to risk lives when he is working alone. Didn't much care for the Shelby story, pretty uninteresting. The Kebron story was amzing, as expected; now I know why Kebron doesn't need love because he has gold fish. The Lefler story was sad and then the Morgan story angered me as a parent. I have no respect for Morgan Primus now.

Immortality is a terrible burden. Sounds great in theory, not so in practice. I thought it was a thought-provoking conundrum.

Re: New Frontier No Limits.

Why do so many people think mortality and death define life? Sure immortality would be a burden if no one else has it, but I would imagine still interesting. The universe is growing. There is always something new to see and learn. I think it is very limited for the mortal to judge the immortal and look down on the ability. It is like the poor hating on ALL the rich because they don't have riches. Fullfillment in life is a state of mind, no matter how long lived you are.

And yet you, a mere mortal, pass judgment on the immortal Morgan Primus with, "I have no respect for Morgan Primus now".

Re: New Frontier No Limits.

Because she was going to fly a shuttle into the sun to commit suicide with her young daughter aboard. She was going to kill her daughter in a suicide attempt. That is unthinkable for a parent. Then she abandons her young daughter because she can't handle her life? That is cowardly,selfish, and pathetic to abandon your child like that, mortal or immortal.

And yet, it happens every day somewhere in the world, for any number of contributing factors. Do we lose all respect for (temporarily) mentally ill people, or attempt to help them?

I thought I had read No Limits, but based on these story descriptions, I'm beginning to think I didn't.

I know what it is. I have it sitting on my shelf.

I'm just starting to think I didn't read all the stories.

Re: New Frontier No Limits.

This is the only New Frontier book I haven't got (well, aside from Blind Man's Bluff, but I plan to get that when it's out in paperback).

It has never sounded like I'm missing too much, from previous threads.

Re: New Frontier No Limits.

Started to read Lefler's Logs this afternoon, only got a few pages into it.
Im a little confused about the stardates. Are we really supposed to believe that Lefler was 7 during season 1 of the original series???
