Re: MU: Rise Like Lions by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I'm sure they have a jar or two of them lying around somewhere.

Re: MU: Rise Like Lions by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Votes "Bloody brilliant!"

I got Rise Like Lions out of the library since it was mentioned int he Disavowed thread. I couldn't put it down (luckily my daughter was at her science club and my son was happily playing by himself), I reckon it's the best Trek novel I have read in a long time.

And I can vouch for David Mack's ability to put all the relevant references into the story because I haven't read any of the other MU novels and I didn't have any problems.

David, any chance of you writing more New Frontier? (or are there other NF stories already that you have written? ) - I'd love to read more of Calhoun and his crew written in your style. The Excalibur parts of Rise Like Lions were wonderful.

Re: MU: Rise Like Lions by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

My only other contribution to Peter David's ongoing New Frontier saga was my Zak kebron short story "Waiting for G'Doh, or, How I Learned to Stop Moving and Hate People" in the anthology No Limits.

The work I did in Rise Like Lions with the Mirror Universe versions of his characters was something about which I spoke with Peter before I wrote the book. Not sure I'd go out of my way to use those characters again, but I wouldn't mind revisiting their tales of adventure in the MU.

Thanks for your kind words — glad you enjoyed RLL!

David, did it take you a long time to come up with all the chapter titles?

A little while. Some came easily during the writing of the manuscript, others required a bit more reflection and were filled in at the end.

Ditto.

I know David Mack is known for his action / drama, high stakes kind of stories, but since reading that story I've wanted him to write a pure comedy romp. It'd be hilarious.

Re: MU: Rise Like Lions by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Maybe I'll try to get Michael Dorn and Armin Shimerman to record the audio of my favorite Worf/Quark moment from my "lost" DS9 story pitch and then hire someone to animate it. That would be a hoot.

It sounded like a goddamn riot when you were talking about it at Shore Leave. And Michael Dorn always had surprisingly great comic timing.

I'd buy that!

I could try, but I think it would work better as a performance. (Anyone who's heard me tell the story of this lost scene knows why.)

Re: MU: Rise Like Lions by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Well great, I've never heard the story of this "Lost" pitch and now I'm wondering where I can get the rundown.

ALSO:

David, are there currently any plans (or even thoughts) about going back to the Mirror Universe and exploring or maybe seeing agents of the Galactic Commonwealth interacting in the RU? I know I'm probably not alone in my appreciation of your work in the MU and turning it into another corner of Star Trek that really holds my interest.

Currently awaiting your Section 31: Disavowed novel.

I've talked about it on numerous podcasts over the years. But for now let's leave it as a tantalizing mystery….

We can revisit this question after you've read Disavowed….
