From Diane Carey's Ship of the Line
"Morgan Bateson here. Welcome to the Typhon Expanse, Captain Spock."
"Good afternoon, Captain Bateson. This is Jim Kirk speaking."
Every time I reread this exchange, I laugh out loud. Anyone else find it funny? It actually does fit nicely with something Christopher has included in his novels.
To clarify, the last portion of the spoiler code about the conditions Kirk asked for were written by Christopher. I don't remember where I found the first pieces of information.
