Re: TOS: That Which Divides by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I thought it was pretty pedestrian. I didn't really get a feel of much tension even in the parts that felt like they should have been. There wasn't anything else in particular to dislike, but equally it's not something I'd read a second time.

Finished it the other day, and have posted my review of it. Not bad, but nothing really "grabbed" me as being stellar or excellent. Solid, a good read, but not exceptional.

I looked up Lt.Boma in Memory Alpha to help put a face to the name, and I noticed he has apperaed in two previous non-canon books(Dreadnought and Battlestations). Does his posting to the Huang Zhong jive with those two previous books? They have him listed as a civilian scientist not a Stafleet Lieutenant.

He was a lieutenant in the episode "The Galileo Seven"; Carey's books postulate that he left Starfleet afterwards.

I haven't read That Which Divides, so I can't speak to how well it gels with Carey's accounts. My guess is "not very well", though.

I don't think they jibe at all. (Jive = nonsense or deceptive talk; jibe = agree or be in accord; gibe = mock or deride.) Dreadnought and Battlestations fit into the old '80s version of Trek novel continuity, which is very different from what the later shows and books have established.

Thanks for the info guys. Sorry about the jibe mistake I'm enjoying the book so far and should be done with it in a few days. I may post a few more questions between now and then.

The peril of using broken English in a forum populated by writers . A constant fear of mine. Luckily I have the ESL excuse + "show me your German" .

^ I did learn German "Deutsch" in High School (Gymnasium) many moons ago. I still remember a bit of it. Ex: Wie heisst du?(sorry no Scharfes S on my computer), Wie alt bist du?, Wo wohnst du? etc.. I can still count in German and say a few more phrases.
