Yes, he's very much a "sympathy for the Devil" sort of character.

Re: Star Trek Vanguard: The Finale Thread (SPOILERS)

At long last the day has arrived: the official publication day for Storming Heaven, the action-packed finale of the Star Trek Vanguard saga!

The fine folks over at StarTrek.com have posted a short article by yours truly that talks about what the saga has meant to me as a writer, and why I feel that Vanguard‘s final installment is consistent with the ideas that first inspired the series.

As part of my own continuing send-off for the series, I’ve updated my website’s Vanguard Finale Page with two new PDF files — the original Star Trek Vanguard Series Bible, and the post-Harbinger addendum to the bible that I wrote for the benefit of my editor, Marco Palmieri, and Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, the authors who would follow my lead.

Caveat: The series bible and its addendum contain major spoilers, so I strongly advise you not to peruse them until after you’ve finished reading the saga.

This weekend, I’ll be recording a special roundtable discussion about the series with Marco, Dayton, and Kevin. We’ll answer questions submitted by fans, decide who wins the autographed sets of the complete saga, and spill the series’ secrets. As soon as I get that discussion edited, my friend Keith R.A. DeCandido and his cohorts at long-running fan-favorite podcast series The Chronic Rift will host the “Vanguard Farewell Podcast” as a special presentation.

I’m also working to arrange a special presentation, with help from some folks in the Internet-radio arena, to bring you a special podcast about the musical inspirations behind the Vanguard saga. More on that as it develops, so stay tuned.

For now, I hope you’ll all grab a copy of Storming Heaven hot off the presses and enjoy the last wild ride of the Starbase 47 crew and the rest of the saga’s sprawling roster of dramatis personae.

Whoa, releasing the original bible is very fancy, thanks for that. Looking forward to reading it one day.

Would I be breaking any kind of rules if I printed the series bible out so I can take my time with it?

Re: Star Trek Vanguard: The Finale Thread (SPOILERS)

If memory serves, I disabled the printing function on that PDF to discourage people from doing things like selling copies at conventions without my permission. (I know there are ways around it, of course, but I have to do what I can.) However, I apologize if that's an inconvenience for you.

Awesome news, thanks Dave! I'm looking forward to the podcast. Should we have finished the final book before we listen?

^ Yes, I'd recommend finishing the series before listening to the podcasts, as they will contain serious spoilers.

I always pictured Dr. Fischer as Morgan Freeman! I'm glad to see that he was the actor model you guys had in mind for the good doctor. Although I have to admit seeing Dorian Harewood also in the role.

Was Rush part of the musical inspiration?

Re: Star Trek Vanguard: The Finale Thread (SPOILERS)

Maybe a little bit ... but the podcast would focus on other, less obvious inspirations.
