Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

I know his name's spelled wrong but he needs to come back into the Trek fold. Who agrees?

It all depends on IF David wants to return. I would love to read some more of his work. But I can understand he's upset with the way his work was sort of completely ignored by the editors.

Note I said editors, since I want to make sure people don't go blaiming the other authors. From what I gathered, they basicly had to retcon David's work. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

I'd certainly be interested. IFM had a really different tone than anything else that has come out in the last couple years, and I like my TrekLit varied and full of interesting ideas.

I would definitely be up for more Trek from David McIntee. I really enjoyed enjoy IFM and was really disapointed when I heard it was apparently going to be his last Trek work.

Re: Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

I would love to see more Star Trek novels by David McIntee. IFM was the second Star Trek novel that I read after years of not reading any Star Trek. CLB:s Watching the Clock was the first one that I read and it blew my mind and I wanted to read more, but I was cautious as well, felt that maybe I just stumbled into something great and the other treklit is not as good. But when I read IFM it felt like I had come back to home, I really enjoyed the novel and after that I started buying more Star Trek novels as IFM showed that there are more great treklit these days.

Re: Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

I'm a huge fan of Lonemagpie's IFM. I can't point to a single other author who did Geordi quite so well since the days of TNG. No offence to the other authors who've tackled him, but McIntee was my favorite. When I heard that it took place on the Challenger, i was really hoping that this would be Geordi/Barclay/Ogawa/Scotty/Nog's new status quo. Challenger could be the home of new SCE stories...or the Challenger could have missions like Aventine and show up now and then in other books...

The whole thing about the differences in this and DMack's Data trilogy are easy enough to overlook. DRG3 mentioned this story in Plagues, and they explained away the rank bump. The Brahms thing is easy enough to chalk up to not working out. Simple as that. Hopefully an editor interested in working with Lonemagpie will be in Pocket's, and our, futures..

I'd be a liar if I said I didn't hope that somebody at S&S might think that way for an SCE relaunch...

Thanks for the other nice comments as well.
