Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I've been reading Harbringer, the first Vanguard novel. I really like it, but I'm kind of hoping to finish it soon so I can move on to The Light Fantastic and the first "Seekers" novel that have been queued up on my Kindle. I'll get back to Vanguard after I read those novels.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I got Q&A, and finished it a few days ago. It was a very enjoyable story focused on Q. It didn't dethrone the Q-Continuum trilogy as my favorite Q book story, but it was good. I like how it tied his appearances together, but I also like how it didn't negate the idea that, sometimes, Q just likes to mess with Picard for no reason

It was actually a bit weird to get into the stuff on the Enterprise-E, because I'm used to the current novelverse stuff, so I wasn't familiar with the replacement Enterprise-E crewmembers in this book (Miranda Kadohata, T'Lana and Zelik Leybenzon), since they definitely weren't on the ship by the time the Typhoon Pact came around.

Looking on memory-beta, all three eventually went off the deep end, so good riddance to them (and I actually liked Kadohata). I also learned while looking them up that I should avoid Before Dishonor like the plague (I guess even Peter David can have an off day, the book sounds downright revolting and Peter David's stuff is usually excellent). Honestly, it seems like every book post Nemesis that featured the borg was terrible, although Before Dishonor seems like something I'd hate less for what the borg did and more because it has the three crewmembers in question doing something that could never, ever happen, especially on the Enterprise (outside of some kind of alien mind control of the whole crew).

So, overall, I enjoyed Q&A quite a bit, although knowing that a few of the newer characters are horrible, horrible people makes me wish they hadn't been given so much time in the book.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

The mailman just delivered my IDW #29, 30, and 35.

So, I'm going to be reading those later on this afternoon.

(And, according to an email from the comic store I bought the above from: #36 is available).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm reading Star Trek Vanguard Precipice by David Mack. A lot of action is certainly happening with the charcters in the first few chapters in this book.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Death in Winter a few days ago and it was nothing special if I'm honest; rather boring actually.

But I've just started Taking Wing and I love it so far. The Titan is shaping up to have a great crew and I'm so hoping that the likes of Dr Ree and Melora Pazlar will stick around for a good while (although, I'm not sure how likely that is).

Finished a re-read of Red October (Clancy) this morning. It's been a while, but still enjoyed it.

Currently it's Death Troopers by Joe Schreiber

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished a 70s Trek novel The Price of the Phoenix. Really good. Made me fall in love with the Romulan Commander all over again, she has a really strong role there as a full equal with Kirk and Spock. The homoerotic subtext was jaw droppingly strong, much more blatant and titillating than the famous Killing Time first printing. I loved every minute of it, but I'm still amazed it got printed. The subtext is just about official enough in this one to just be considered text. At the very least there's a strong objectification of Kirk - he's stripped naked against his will - twice! if you count his transporter clone imaginatively called James, who mind melds with Spock while naked. It's crazy, but an action packed brisk read.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Vanguard's Harbinger and I was very satisfied with it. It felt like it dragged on a bit at times and I can say unfortunately that there are some dry parts, mostly with Pennington, that I just skipped over. Overall it was lovely and I'll be definitely looking into the rest of the series.

I'm currently reading through the first book of My Brother's Keeper, Republic, and I really do love it. It fleshes out Mitchell and really makes Where No Man Has Gone Before quite was.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Star Trek: The More Things Change.

I then read the first Falling Skies comic, which is a prequel to the first season.

I'm now reading The Cold Dish, the first in the Walt Longmire series, by Craig Johnson.
