Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Last night I finished Star Trek: Titan: Absent Enemies by John Jackson Miller.

Today I read the Fable short story "Reaver" by Peter David.

I'm now about to start the Once Upon a Time comic Shadow of the Queen.

I've still got Federation: The First 150 Years to finish, but Christopher L. Bennett's Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel has just appeared on my Kindle and that takes priority!

Agreed, Tower of Babel is my top priority too

I'm very interested to hear what you think of it. I' a huge OUAT and I've been very curious about the GN.

I finished the Kate Daniels (World) novella, Magic Mourns.
My review wrote:
A fun short novella. While this book is part of the Kate Daniels series, it is actually narrated by one of the series supporting characters, Andrea Nash. As much as I love Kate, it's fun to get into a different character's head for once. I really liked getting to learn more about her backstory, and the releationship between her and the Bouda (Werehyena) Rapheal was a lot of fun. The story itself was also pretty good. I'm a big Greek mythology fan, so I especially enjoyed those aspects of the story.
My rating: 4\5

Forgot to mention that I had also been working my way through Diplomatic Implausibility by Keith R. A. DeCandido before I started Tower of Babel. Managed to get my hands on a bunch of older Trek novels recently after finding out a friend of a friend from work was looking to clear out some of his books (which he had just sitting around taking up space in his basement).

Anyway, I was in kind of a Klingon mood, so I decided to read Diplomatic Implausibility first. Finished it earlier tonight, thought it was a lot of fun. Now I'm focusing completely on Tower of Babel, which I'm about halfway through.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

While waiting for Christopher's latest effort to arrive, I picked up Avatar book 1. I've never really read the DS9R...was kinda saving it...but now i'm right into it. I'll put it aside for Tower of Babel, but i think i'll pick it back up right after

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

i've got a ton of trek reading in front of me. I took a break away from the Post-Nemesis stuff for a few years. The last stuff i read was Destiny. I would buy them, stock up on them, just never really be in the mood to read them. So now I'm diving into all the Voyager books, starting with Full Circle. After that, its on to Typhon Pact, TNG: Cold Equations, and the Fall.
4 years ago, i had found all of the old numbered TOS books, from The Motion Picture, all the way to In the Name of Honor. So over the years ive been working through those.

That's funny you took a similar break from the books to me.
I stopped at Destiny a few years ago and just started back in to reading them recently.
Just finished catching up on Voyager a few weeks ago.
(Although I stopped after reading Children of the Storm to give myself a few more Voyager books to read down the line.)
Really enjoyed them.

Currently catching up on Titan books.
Then I want to read all the DS9 books after Unity.
After that it's on Typhon Pact, Cold Equations and eventually The Fall.
Have two Department of Temporal Investigations books to slot in somewhere as well.

Looks like I have a lot of Trek reading ahead of me as well.

Thanks, both of you. Glad you enjoyed them.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm thinking of buying the book "Ex Machina", and reading on Amazon.com parts about it.
Perhaps a very stupid question, but why is Kirk called captain when he is a Admiral?

"Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel" - having highlight and then lookup some of these ENT-era races, which I'd forgotten. (Malurian, Lorillian...)

In ST:TMP, Kirk was wearing captain's rank stripes and addressed as "Captain" for most of the film. Even aside from the naval tradition that the commanding officer of a ship should be addressed as "Captain" regardless of rank (a tradition which most onscreen Trek has ignored, except for bits of DS9), the evidence suggests that Kirk accepted a demotion to captain's rank, perhaps as part of his deal to get the ship back. Most tie-in fiction set in the post-TMP era has remained consistent with this.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The other day I finished Once Upon a Time: Shadow of the Queen.

I'm currently reading Star Trek: No Time Like the Past by Greg Cox.

If you're interested in the Huntsman character from the first season, then it's worth picking up. I thought the story was pretty interesting but nothing amazing. The art varies from chapter to chapter but I thought it was mostly good. Overall, it's a fairly entertaining story about the Huntsman. Most fans of OUAT will probably enjoy it.
