No, I already read 1-5, but starting with Declassified I decided to wait until the next one came out and read them together...and then learned that the one after that was the finale, so decided to wait to read all 3.

I finished Children of the Storm a couple days ago and really enjoyed it. The only, very minor disappointment I had, was that the core Voyager characters seemed secondary to the plot. That's not to say I didn't enjoy the new characters. It's just everyone's been talking about how Chakotay is finally getting development and what-not, and I just really am not seeing it three Beyer books in. But really, interesting story, enjoyed it a great deal.

Also overcame my frustration over e-book-only editions and read Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within. It was fine, but I really would have preferred a longer story. I think Christopher's strength really lies in the densely-plotted novels that I have been able to just lose myself in.

And thus ends the giant goal of getting caught up on Trek! Well, at least as it stood when I started the list. What I had planned to cover in 2011 bled over into 2012 a bit, but I'm super proud of myself for sticking to it and finishing:

2/17/12 Indistinguishable from Magic
2/27/12 DTI: Watching the Clock
3/5/12 Children of the Storm
3/6/12 Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within

So, I have a list for this year too, but it's filled with mostly NOT Trek. Not that I didn't enjoy that ride, but I'm SO ready to visit another universe or two. First off - Artemis Fowl. I read the first one a few years ago and thought it was charming, so I'm going to read at least the first four that I already own. Depending on how I feel when I finish, I'll either go out and find the rest or move on to something else.
I have been doing my own massive re-read of TOS/TNG.
I started with TOS #1 "The Motion Picture", and TNG "Encounter at Farpoint" and am going to read them all in release order.
I'm currently on TOS #4 "The Covenant of the Crown" and TNG #6 "Power Hungry." I read a chapter of one book, then hop to the other book reading a chapter, and then back to the first book, etc etc.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished up with The Red King earlier today. Definitely enjoyed it more the second time around, but I think that is to do with the fact that I was more invested in the Neyel, having recently read The Sundered. Good stuff and establishing a firm foundation for Titan.

Now a brief detour back to Vanguard for Distant Early Warning and Summon the Thunder. Then back to Titan for Orion's Hounds.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I feel I am going to be reading Kip Fulbeck's "Paper Bullets" because of personal, and academic interests.

I already have a full stack of books to read...and I'd been having trouble deciding exactly I wanted to read next.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I picked up the first trade paperback of KRAD's post-Peacekeeper Wars Farscape comics on Thursday after work. Read it and immediately reached for more. Read 4 or 5 volumes on Friday evening, and this afternoon/evening finished the rest of the series (including the last 8 issues of The War for the Uncharted Territories "floppies") and the two volumes of Farscape:Scorpius, scripted by David Mack. They were all very, very good. If you like Farscape and wonder what happens next, these constitute about a season-and-a-half of new Farscape goodness.

I'm sure I have a copy of KRAD's Farscape novel, House of Cards, around here somewhere, lonely and unread... I wonder where that went? Aaaah, here it is. Straight to the top of the pile for you!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished The Romulan War: Under the Raptor's Wing. I really enjoyed it, I don't see why this book gets such a bad rep.

Just started Star Wars: The Cestus Deception.

Not really sure what will be on deck after that; most likely The Hunger Games, as long as my daughter has finished rereading it (for the third time) by then. She's not much of a reader so I'm really glad a series has grabbed her so much that she won't stop reading it, even though the subject matter creeps me out.

If she's not done, then I'll probably read a short story collection I just bought titled Robots: The Recent A.I. instead.

I really don't know why you would say that. The post-NEM TNG novels are generally accepted to consist of:

- Death in Winter - Romulan politics, Picard/Crusher hookup
- Resistance - Rogue Borg cube threatens the Federation
- Q & A - Q's back!
- Before Dishonor - Rogue Borg cube threatens Earth, enrages Janeway fans
- Greater Than the Sum - New crew lineup; Picard chases down the last of the rogue Borg
- Destiny: Gods of Night - Now the real Borg are out to kill us all
- Destiny: Mere Mortals - Ditto
- Destiny: Lost Souls - The same
- Losing the Peace - Federation refugee camps
- Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony - Andorian crisis
- Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within - Internal crises with the Talarians and Kinshaya

Of all of these, only Losing the Peace deals with displaced populations.

You missed IFM - which also has bugger all to do with displaced populations, as it happens.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished and reviewed Dayton Ward's new release, That Which Divides. Not bad, but didn't really "grab" me the way some Trek lit does.

Now I'm reading New Frontier: Gateways #5: Cold Wars.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Purchased a number of ST books for my reader but not reading much yet. Reading Yoshihiro-sensei (Francis Fukuyama) with "The End of History and the Last Man," "Trust," "The Great Disruption" (reread), "Our Posthuman Future" (reread), and currently "State-Building." OPF may have relevance to eugenics wars and such. Made an improptu New Year's resolution to read "Sense and Sensibility" and finally got about 4/5 of the way through this book.

Some of you may be jealous of me as I have not read very much of the newer ST books and therefore have many good books to read sometime soon. Have read many TOS and TNG but not much others. May read the two "Maximum Warp" books by Dave Galanter & Greg Brodeur soon more to cover modern TNG. "Articles of the Federation" does seem to be a good read by KRAD. Look forward to SCE books soon too.

Does advanced technology only mean spaceships and rayguns? Surely public administration and education would have advanced as well. Will essentially contested concepts always be essentially contested concepts? I guess I just have to read more books. ... Hope to begin NF soon too.
