Author sighting in Genesis Wave

Just started a re-read of the Genesis Wave series of hardcover books and found that apparently David Mack is a Lieutenant in Starfleet R&D!

He composed the current re-assessment of the Genesis Device.

Re: Author sighting in Genesis Wave

^ Chapter 14, right? I wrote that "classified internal report." Because at the time I was hired it seemed as if I wasn't going to be able to be acknowledged as the author, I snuck that in as a way to "sign" my work.

Re: Author sighting in Genesis Wave

Of course, we later learn that Lt. David Mack is a filthy liar, because he's feeding us a version of Project Genesis that is carefully doctored to remove all evidence of Project Vanguard and the Shedai.

We shouldn't trust this man, people. He works for the government, and the government is working on a cover-up.

Wasn't there a Vulcan named "D'Mack" mentioned in either A Singular Destiny or Losing the Peace?

There was also a park on some random planet (Vulcan I think) named after a prolific board member here, but in Destiny, said park was raised to the ground to the outrage of said board member.

And T'Bonz, was I think a security member onboard the Enterprise E.

I believe you are thinking of Therin Park on Andor. Fortunately, after the Borg Invasion, when the city of Lor'Vela became the new capital of the Andorian Empire, the new Parliament Andoria Complex had its garden renamed New Therin Park.

And T'Bonz, was I think a security member onboard the Enterprise E.
Transporter operator, actually, in A Time to Kill.

I think you mean to type "razed". It's completely different from "raised".

Well, it *was* on Andor, and we know they have underground cities, so maybe...

Boy, did you get that wrong!

Heather Jarman named Therin Park on Andor for me ("Paradigm") and Terri Osborne was cranky that I mentioned it here too often, so she had some Tellarite terrorists blow it up "to teach me a lesson". I didn't even know for about a year, 'cos I wasn't up-to-date in reading the CoE eBooks.

Then David Mack announced in "Destiny" that Therin Park had been rebuilt, only to have the Borg decimate it. No malice or outrage on my part whatsoever. Nor his.

Since then Dayton Ward has placed New Therin Park in another city, and linked it's significance to Shantherin th'Clane (of Christopher Bennett's "Ex Machina"), and more recently Michael Martin named an Andorian warship in a "Titan" novel after the same Therin.

But you knew that.

Re: Author sighting in Genesis Wave

Doesn't KRAD have a character or two named for him in the novelverse?

Why thank you for claiming that, of course, as always, you know best, even when you don't, but still try to think you do.

Also - coincidentally - a character in a Gold Key comic was "Krad".
