Got a copy!

I like it: interesting exploration of Trek history and a reconciliation with our present, nice to see the solar system in the Trekverse, good to see the TOS crew in their prime.

Re: TOS: The Rings of Time Review Thread

Up to chapter thirteen, so far I'm liking where this is going. A few things caught me, some names I shall not mention got my attention.

Nice review. When I read the book in manuscript, I did the same thing you did -- as per Quantum Leap, Stargate, and other shows with "body-switching," I visualized Kirk when it was Kirk inside Col. Christopher (unless the scene was from another character's POV), and vice-versa. My mental casting choice for Shaun Christopher was Ben Browder.

Ooh, Ben Browder, good choice! I went with the more boring option of (a slightly older) Roger Perry.

To be honest, I often found myself visualizing Kirk even when he was in Shaun's body . . . .

Loved it....especially some of the names for the characters. I went back and watched Tomorrow is Yesterday this morning and saw a reference to a couple of these names.
