It's pretty neat how little holdovers like that show up as details in cover art.

The registiy of the Rio Grande is actually wrong on that cover if you look closely; it uses the registry of the Shenandoah (NCC-73024) from "Change of Heart" and "Valiant".
I'm sure Doug Drexler will whip himself naked through the streets of Aberdeen while weeping bitter tears of regret.

Just kidding. Apparently, the registry-number error in the digital model of the Rio Grande is a holdover from the post-production files of the DS9 episode "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River."

Ah, well. Bummer.
Like I said above I hope the plucky, lucky runabout isn't destroyed. I know how you authors like to blow up things. Ha.

Don't make me start a Bring Back The Rio Grand club. Us BBRGers are meaner than the BBKJers (Bring Back Kathryn Janeway) crowd.

I'm, uh, not really sure what to think here.

I wish I had one of these cool bookstores that sold things before the street date. I would check mine, but considering it takes them almost a month to get in current comic issues...

One outstanding seems promising though!

Some stuff was left unexplained, and I gather the forum hates that.

I'm willing to reserve judgment until I see where it goes though.

Yeah, that's one of the pitfalls of writing a middle volume in a multi-book series.

Read it in one marathon session today. No spoilers from me, but good stuff.

Can't wait for the next chapter.

Re: TF: A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Question for David Mack: Does the Bashir situation at the end of the book get resolved in peacable kingdoms, or do we have to wait until next year for your section 31 book? Ceremony of Losses was excellent by the way.
