Indeed. I finished After the Fall this afternoon and started reading Missing in Action. I'm disappointed that I'm coming to the end of the novel series. It's too bad Peter David hasn't written any more New Frontier novels: I wouldn't mind seeing from new blood take over the series.

BTW, has anyone else noticed that David uses the phrase "in point of fact" a lot? (And please don't reply to this by using the phrase as part of your response.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

For some reason I'm not in the mood for prose at the moment so I've downloaded the new German non-fiction book Maximum Warp about the Star Trek novels (you can find some info here: http://www.thetrekcollective.com/201...star-trek.html).

Probably will start it later today.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

about half way through Harbinger, the first vanguard novel. So far the description of the station and its inhabitants is reminding me a lot of Babylon 5.

Kinda like a TOS-era DS9 ?

Now, now... Babylon 5 was horizontal, Harbinger is vertical!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I came back to this site after only a short absence and with a new computer which makes reading so much more easy. But, it seems I must speed up my reading of newer books to keep up. Very much still reading "Warchild" by Friesner (ST-DS9 #7) and I have purchased so many of the newer books already. And more to come! Also must watch episodes of the serieses which I have missed out on. Much of the talk is becoming foreign. Thanks for the help about 'relaunch' (or, relaunches). The Trek BBS is on the favorites bar of this new computer. I did go to Bard-on-the-Beach again (twice) this year in Vancouver by the Space Centre. A nice location for Shakespeare.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've just finished reading My Brother’s Keeper #3: Enterprise , as well as Vanguard #3 - Reap the Whirlwind, and i've moved onto Vanguard #4 - Open Secrets. I'm hoping Dayton Ward can keep my interest as well as David Mack has on Vanguard. His and Kevin Dilmore's Summon the Thunder did, so i'm sure he will

A lot of things remind me more of B5 than DS9 - the diplomatic delegations, the interior parks, the trams to get about, the rougher unfinished areas away from the core, the raised officer level in the operations centre, etc.

Not saying thats a bad thing, just that its reminiscent.

And it is somewhat all alone in the night.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Enjoying the Captain's Daughter, and since things seem to be falling quite well (my Voyager rewatched just hit Flashback before I started CD) I figured I might hit Lost Era: The Sundred just to have my fill of Sulu and the Excelsior. Good idea or bad idea?

I really enjoyed The Sundered when I read it a few years ago. It's one of the only other Sulu -Excelsior stories other than Forged in Fire and CD. Definitely worth your time. tons of TOS people in it too

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Thank you sir, I'll add it to the To read list. Forged in Fire caught my eye too, but I'm trying to do a chronological run, and seems I already missed that one. I'll get it on my next one (which I'm already planning, which might be a sign of madness)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started Terok Nor: Day of the Vipers.
Arrived with a whole pile of books so now I have plenty to read though I still haven't received my Destiny books so I am kinda stuck there.

My new book has given a whole new meaning to "dog-eared". My sister's puppy decided to chew on it.
