Re: New blurbs.... Including a 7 of 9/James Kirk team-up

As I recall, it's after "One Small Step" but before Voyager got back in touch with Starfleet . . . .

I have to admit, I'm interested in seeing what will happen when Kirk meets Seven, a very attractive, stunning young woman. Could be amusing.

What you don't think it could be amusing for Seven to smack Kirk down if he tries anything?
But I''m going to give Greg Cox a little more credit than that, as I do like his writing and I enjoy time travel stories most of the time.
Though since it IS Cox, I'm wondering if someone's going to ask if Annika Seven has a connection to Gary Seven...
Okay, just for you, a brief preview:

"Any relation to Gary?"

"Who?"
You wrote the entire book just to set up that exchange, am I right?

Interest in the "Private Little War" follow-up, as well. Seems to me that conflict likely continued at least until, possibly even after, the resolution of the greater conflict (Klingons v. Feds) that spawned it.

A book partially set during the Voyager TV series is cool. Kirk meeting Seven, on the other hand, seems goofy.

I eagerly await the inevitable Rom/Sulu team-up in the sequel.

[QUOTE=Relayer1;8456173

I had assumed that it was part of her cover story - possibly picked up on from Kirk misunderstanding her name and where she had appeared from...[/QUOTE]

Now there's a thought. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

And check out the epilogue of "New Frontier: Stone and Anvil" to find out how it all ends.

Seven meeting Kirk is no goofier to me than the crew of the Defiant ending up on the Old E or Janeway sort of meeting Sulu, though that last one doesn't really count since it was in Tuvok's mindmeld.

How about the actual actors taking the place of their fictional counterparts?

She fell for Chakotay, what on Earth makes you think she could resist Shatner. Err. Kirk.
Since I never met a Greg Cox novel I didn't enjoy and Seven is my favorite Voyager character, I'm looking forward to this.

And you must admit that there were not many choices on Voyager. Seven just happened to choose the most boring one possible (at least Harry and Seven have common interests in astronomy and music).

Thanks for the votes of confidence, folks. This is an idea that has been percolating at the back of my brain for a couple years of now. In fact, I almost ended up writing it before The Weight of Worlds, but I eventually decided that, after The Rings of Time, I didn't want to do two time-travel adventures in a row . . . .
Based on your cool personality here in the forums and my love of your previous books, I'll buy it and give it a chance. Though I'd be lying if I said I could wrap my head around a story with Kirk meeting Seven and take it seriously.

Although it would be nice to read Seven take down the famous Captain Kirk down a peg or two instead of the Kirk worship we get from other characters. Heaven forbid if it had been Harry Kim who was sent back in time to meet Kirk.
Hey, some of us LOVE time travel stories, as long as they're plotted plausibly and science/history doesn't go completely off the rails.

Besides, it could have been much, MUCH worse... imagine if Kirk had been subjected to Icheb!

There's a rather famous fanfic detailing that, plus many others besides.

8of5 posted some new blurbs from S&S today, including No Time Like the Past, a TOS book by Greg Cox featuring a team-up of James Kirk & 7of9. Don't believe me? Read it for yourself.
No Time Like The Past wrote:
Stardate 6422.5. A diplomatic mission to the planet Yusub erupts in violence when ruthless Orion raiders attempt to disrupt the crucial negotiations by force. Caught in the midst of tense and dangerous situation, Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S Enterprise finds an unexpected ally in the form of an enigmatic stranger who calls herself “Annika Seven.”

Stardate 53786.1. Seven of Nine is taking part in an archaeological expedition on an obscure planetoid in the Delta Quadrant when a disastrous turn of events puts Voyager’s away team in jeopardy—and transports Seven across time and space to Yusub, where she comes face to face with one of Starfleet’s greatest legends.

Stardate 6422.5. Kirk knows better than most the danger that even a single castaway from the future can pose to the timeline, so he and Seven embark on a hazardous quest to return her to her own era. But there are others who crave the knowledge Seven possesses, and they will stop at nothing to obtain it—even if this means seizing control of the Enterprise!
Usually with something like I would be scared, but with someone with the skill and history of Greg Cox behind it, it has the potential pretty awesome IMO.
Is this one of Kirk's 17 temporal violations?

Paging Agent Dulmer! Paging Agent Lucsley!

Even if it's not Kirk's fault the DTI will blame him. The man's a menace.
