I just finished reading Star Trek Vanguard Open Secrets it was an excellent story. I'm now reading Vanguard Declassified . I really like reading about the building of the station and the very beginning of the Vanguard space station.
Open Secrets is VAN book 4, while Declassified is VAN book 6. Precipice is VAN book 5. You may want to read it first...especially before David Mack's story in Declassified.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Yesterday I received The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, volume I in the mail. This afternoon I finished it. I started on the series a decade ago, when they were released, but for some reason I received the first volume as a set of audiodramas on cassette tape and the second as a book. The tapes were excellent, but I misplaced them and couldn't finish the story. Rewatching "Space Seed", TWOK, and Into Darkness prompted me to purchase a copy of the first book, so now I can read the second and buy the third. Poor Gary Seven; he has no idea what horrors he released on the world by rescuing little Khan.

^ Loved that book.

Currently reading ENT novel By the Book. This book might be ok but it keeps ripping you out of the story with the alternating chapters that send you back to this RPG game Crewman Cutler is playing with her friends.

Finished Crucible of Empire by Flint/Wentworth and enjoyed it.

I'm about half way through the new Seekers novel and am really enjoying it so far.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I am also reading Seekers #1 right now. I'm alternating between it and DS9: Twilight by DRG3, as I couldn't put it aside completely due to its high quality. Enjoying both very much

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished Vanguard: Harbinger this morning. Tonight after work i'll be starting Vanguard: Summon the Thunder. I originally read the first 3 books when each first came out. And then I stopped reading the series. So I started over, and plan to burn through all 8 books before starting Seekers book 1.

Count me as another person working through Seekers #1. I'm about a third of the way through.

Forbidden by Ted Dekker. I'm really enjoying it. It's book one of the Mortals series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Fringe: The Burning Man last night. I'm not really sure what I think about it. It's not necessarily bad, but I did enjoy The Zodiac Paradox more. What I thought of as the main storyline just wrapped up around the halfway point, and then the plot just changed. There was a lot of crazy stuff that happened, which is to be expected in Fringe. But the story is a prequel to the show, focusing on Olivia, and I never got the idea that she had seen any weird stuff before the show (other than the Cortexiphan trials as kid, which she didn't really remember as an adult). I just feel that if the events which happened in this novel actually occurred in Olivia's past she would have mentioned it at some point in the show. Like I said, I'm not sure if I liked it or not, it's not bad, but fairly interesting, so if I had to rate it I would give it 3 out of 5 stars.

I'm now reading The Walking Dead, Volume 4: The Heart's Desire.

The RPG was the aspect I enjoyed the most.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Voy: Homecoming and The Farther Shore. The writing style wasn't the best, but overall this felt like a proper finale to the series. I almost wish it was the real finale, except Data probably plays too big a role for the TV (and we wouldn't want a TNG star stealing a finale now, would we......)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Got Seekers 1 in the mail & decided it was about time I read Vanguard. So I'm reading Harbinger. There's an awful lot of characters introduced in the first few chapters, but I'm mostly managing to keep them straight.
