That time period would be very good and I would defiantly read a TOS book taking place then.
It's OK, I don't think anyone would actually take issue with you reading said book!

Very true. I would love a TMP era novel by Greg however.
Honestly, I think Christopher Bennett knows and loves that era better than I do, but I have been thinking about the gap between TFF and TUC . . . .

Ditto

^Me too. I'm amazed there aren't more stories set during that era, but that topic was already covered in another thread, so I'll just leave it there.....

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

The gap between TFF and TUC is, personally, my favorite "era" for stories with the original crew. Plenty of room there, and anything set during that period immediately gets my attention and money.

Since there have only been a few novels set in those years, though, in my personal continuity I fill in the "gaps" with my favorite stories from the DC Comics run, a good chunk of which took place then. They even had Saavik back on board for a while, which made me happy.

Now, I also love stories set after TUC, but let's face it, that period is now really overcrowded.

That would be great. There is so much to fill-in and/or do new stuff that's just new. (IMHO), we've had enough 5yr mission to make it 10 years.

Christopher's busy - for some time (I hope) on Enterprise !

There's a decent gap between TFF and TUC and you really do have an affinity for the characters.

There's certainly room for a book or two there, or even an *ahem* series !

Just a thought...

Since you are having fun in the 23rd century, how about some more movie era TOS?
You know, I've been thinking about that . . ..

If you do get to do movie era TOS and do write Savvik, please write her as the Kirsty Ally (original) Savvik. The Robin Curtis Savvik is just too stiff and not as appealing.
While I definately share your desire for more "movie era" TOS, there is no such thing as "enough" TOS in ANY era.

And, as far as Saavik goes, the more Robin Curtis, the better. I have nothing against Alley, I just think Curtis was better.

Another great movie era that needs exploring.

Make it so.

You are the only person I have ever come across that even liked (let alone preferred) Robin Curtis in the role.

I do too. I always thought she was more "vulcan" than Alley. Robin Curtis' Saavik seemed more like Spock. After reading her background, not only the half romulan thing, but the fact that she was raised by Spock and his parents, it seemed even more so. That being said, Kirsty Alley was still quite good

I prefer Curtis to Alley, and I believe Margaret Wander Bonanno does too; she wrote Unspoken Truth based more on Curtis's version of Saavik.

Although, to be honest, my preference has more to do with the actresses in general than specifically with how they played Saavik.

Yep, from my interview with her when Unspoken Truth was published:

“Simultaneously,” she adds, “I’m trying my best to stay true to the onscreen Saavik, but leaning more toward Robin Curtis rather than Kirstie Alley in both appearance and performance, and here’s why: Vulcans may say they have no emotions, but that’s only one of many unspoken truths. The emotions are there; they’re just constantly held in check. Add Romulan heritage to that, and you’ve got a simmering volcano, which cannot allow itself to erupt. That’s what I saw in Robin’s performance, and that’s what can be explored in a novel, through internal monologues, that can only be hinted at onscreen.”

Don't worry. I'm definitely in the Kirstie Alley camp!

I prefer Curtis as Saavik, and I also hope for books between TFF and TUC.
