Re: Speculation about stuff in latest Typhon Pact novel SPOILERS WITHI

I still don't think it makes any sense that Odo is trapped when they have no problems zipping Janeway back and forth between Earth and the Delta Quadrant.

It's not like they only have one slipstream ship.

If someone posted a thread about "Spock Must Die" or "Mission To Horatius" I don't think it would be necessary to post a Spoiler warning on those 40-50 year old books. That would be like if someone posted a review thread of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" with a spoiler warning, even though the play is 400 years old. There are always going to be people who have never read the books yet.
This reminds me of the time I was talking about the 1933 film King Kong, and got complaints because there was a remake coming out and what I said could be considered spoilers.

Like I wasn't allowed to discuss a 70 year old film because someone made a remake?

Re: Speculation about stuff in latest Typhon Pact novel SPOILERS WITHI

I was about to post what I think is the likely outcome re Sarina, but it could be viewed as a story idea. I'll just say that I still don't trust her. I'll wait to see if I'm right...

Odo wouldn't have much pull to get a lift by slipstream imho. The equipped ships are few and far between, and are probably pretty fully occupied.

He's Head of State of a power you have an extremely tenuous peace with. I think I could spare a starship to send him home.

Now that he's stuck in the Alpha Quadrant. What would keep more volatile elements from taking control of the Dominion in his absence?

Wait, what? I'm guessing you posted this as an example of "spoilers everyone should know by now", but I guess I'll be "that" person and say this *is* actually a spoiler for me. I guess I should get going and watch those last three movies...

Yeah, this. I know they want him stuck in the Alpha Quadrant because plot, but seriously, the Federation would be stupid *not* to dispatch a QSD ship to send him home ASAP.

And considering the writing team and DRGIII can think of these, there will be probably be a very good reason for Odo staying in the AQ.

Well, the book has been out since 2005, the film, 2009, so yeah, you really should
