Re: TNG Numbered Books?

Last time I counted, I think I had between 4 & 500 Trek books on my overcrowded shelves. But I found Imzadi within 2 minutes.

But I can't believe that I forgot to mention #25 "Grounded" by David Birschoff. As a kid I remember that I had tried reading a few Trek novels (such as "Pawns & Symbols") but it really wasn't til I red "Grounded" that I got hooked on Trek novels.

Dude, spoilers much?
Well, it is getting on for 25 years old. Not sure if spoilers are REALLY necessary...?
It probably is when the OP has just announced an intention to seek out the book for the first time.

Re: TNG Numbered Books?

I've been doing my own re-read of the TNG books, but i'm planning on reading everything in chronological order, including DS9 and VOY. I just started "A Rock and a Hard Place" last night. Far superior to David's first TNG effort. "Strike Zone" has not aged well in my eyes. He wrote most of the characters in that one as annoying smartasses.

Strike Zone is pretty much the only trek media I can think of where I actually like Wesley

if that's not an accomplishment I don't know what is

Well, traveller Wesley isnt really the same Wesley as the tv series. Even then, since ascension he's pretty....I guess boring's probably a bit too strong, so let's go with milquetoast.

^FunnyThough when I was a kid watchinfg TNG I have to admit I thought Wesley was cool. Wheaton is much better as himself on Big Bang.

Re: TNG Numbered Books?

I have only one piece of advice. Find a copy of Gulliver's Fugitives, buy it and read the fuck out of it. Then when your brain has recovered from the concentrated dose of awesome, come on back and thank me. Don't worry I'll be here. ;-)

And Wil Wheaton got the bulk of the fan mail too, according to Richard Arnold. It seemed to be some of the adult fans who disliked Wesley.

Now that I am older I can see why people could be annoyed with his character. Though Wesley has a few solid episodes to his credit like "The First Duty".
