Re: Cold Equations by David Mack???

I've been mulling this over a bit more last night, and I have to say that the Wesley part is starting to sound interesting. I haven't read the A Time To... series, and I'm intriguid to find out how Wesley has developed after all these years as a Traveller.

I thought Wesley rejoined Star Fleet? I could have sworn I saw him in a uniform at Troi and Rikers wedding in Nemesis? I could be wrong though

It never made sense that Wesley would just go back to Starfleet after a) growing frustrated with Starfleet and realizing it had never been the right path for him, just what he was expected to do by others, and b) evolving to a higher level of existence that would let him fulfill his true potential. So, fortunately, the novels (specifically A Time for War, A Time for Peace) explained his presence at the wedding as only a temporary visit, and his presence in uniform as... well... a matter of convenience.

Yeah, there was a deleted scene:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACQqe5-B3TI

Thankfully, since it wasn't in the final movie, treklit was able to sidestep it. The Nemesis bit that did make it into the film was explained away in "a time for war, a time for peace"(brilliant book), which basically said that Wesley travelerported in butt naked, thinking that it was a betazed wedding, and picard got him a uniform.

I much prefer the book version. While I have no particular problem with wesley rejoining, the way Nemesis did it was terrible(like most of the things nemesis did).

Well, there was a very brief shot of Wesley in uniform in the final film, which is why ATFW,ATFP needed to explain it; but the part where he had dialogue about being back in Starfleet (and about to join Riker's Titan crew, IIRC) was deleted.

I for one will be excited to see Wes. I guess this will be the first time since his appearances in the A Time To series IIRC?

While he didn't appear, I'm sure one of the books mentioned that he had been to visit his brother?

And didn't he also pop up for Jean Luc's and Beverly's wedding?

Or also perhaps read the novelization.

Note that Wesley is not visible in the movie unless you're seeing it in widescreen. He's down one end of the table. The table is shown from both directions but in the TV aspect version of the DVD, he's cropped off, confusing people who see Wheaton's name in the closing credits.

Re: Cold Equations by David Mack???

In Book Three, The Body Electric, the Enterprise crew is brought to the center of the Milky Way by an old friend — Traveler and former shipmate Wesley Crusher — to try to stop a massive sentient machine whose mysterious labors threaten the future of every civilization in the galaxy.
Any ideas or bets on what that might be/

Something "mysterious".

The human Reaper that Commander Shepard fought in 2185. Should have checked to make sure it was actually dead!
