Nice! First DRG3 and now you too. Now IFM is firmly entrenched in our current lit continuity; who cares about some editor slightly shrugging it off a few years ago! Now all we need is for Barclay to go missing from the Voyager fleet in late 2382/early 2383. Which...by the pace Voyager is progressing through the timeline...should be in about 8 years

Re: Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

I love this novel. I too hoped this would start a new series with Geordi, Scotty, Barclay, and Nog. I even had hopes that O'Brien (who wasn't in any series at the time) would show up. I do have one question though, was Tomalak's Fist supposed to be a Valdore (or Mogai) class warbird? It sounded as if it was a much larger class, but I'm not sure.

Excatly my thought. Anyway, Tomalak's Fist is neither Valdore nor Mogai class (keep checking Memory Beta to learn the difference soon ). It's this hunk:

Just listened to the Romulan episode on Earl Grey on Trek.fm. Romulans really do have the coolest ship designs.

Re: Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

I've always wondered if the Romulans had a 'Vertical' starship design. I love that one!

As for LoneMagpie: I just had a thought - for someone who's from Yorkshire, perhaps he could introduce some actual Yorkshirebeings into Treklit? There haven't been many, have there?

Re: Bring back David McIntee (LoneMagpie)

It never seemed to me that IFM was dropped from continuity. Even when I heard those, I remembered that George explicitly referenced IFM's major events in his duology.

The only big difference between IFM and later books is that Geordi's relationship with Leah Brahms didn't work out, and that his relationship with a doctor who had been transferred off did. That's easily fixable: maybe things didn't work out with Brahms. It's not as if they necessarily got off to a good start, after all.

I enjoyed the book, and would like to see more books by McIntee.

I'm not actually *from* Yorkshire, I've just lived here for the last 15 years...

But if there's a chance, yeah, I wouldn't mind doing that!

And yeah, Tomalak's Fist is the vertical-oriented version from the calendar.

I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link, but if you search David McIntee Petition on fb it should show up. Is it okay for me to post that info on here?

Yes, you can post it here

Don't go posting it everywhere though - that would be spamming and against the rules, but here where the discussion is happening is fine.

Sounds good, thanks for the help. I'm still trying to get the hang of the procedures around here, so it's always helpful to get an admins point of view

I forgot to thank you for posting this. That was Andrews original premise for the dderidex, right? The vertical ship design. And that's one of his SOTL images, right? I had no clue that was also Tomalak's Fist, that's a huge ship

Well, I didn't actually expect anyone to take that seriously, but it's both amusing and touching that someone has!

On second thought, my post fits better into the 'Picture the Novelverse' thread. ;-)
