Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

Enjoy the Aventine; don't enjoy Captain Ezri. The very idea that she's a Captain before literally every other character in all of the 24th century just chaps my ass. She was a neurotic waste of time one-season character who stole way too much of DS9's 7th season for herself when the time should have been spent on the crew we'd loved and lost with for the prior 6 years. Jadzia forever, Ezri never! :P

You're forgetting Kira Nerys (promoted to captain in 2376), Chakotay (promoted to captain in 2378), and Will Riker (promoted to captain in 2379). Not to mention Elizabeth Shelby, Kat Mueller, and Sonya Gomez. A lot of 24th-century series-regular characters (counting Gomez as the SCE lead) reached captain's rank before Ezri was promoted in 2381.

It's not as if every character is even pursuing captaincy in the first place. Militaries don't work that way. The higher the rank, the fewer people ever reach it. And ship command is just one specialty. The majority of people in any naval service go through their entire careers without getting ships to command, because quite a lot of them aren't trying to.

I've always felt like Aventine could drive a series; lots of great personalities. I've been a little bummed that, since A Singular Destiny, the Aventine's appearances have only focused on Ezri and Sam. I love Kedair, both in Destiny and ASD, and I've wanted to see more about her ever since. I hope JJM does the whole crew proud.
I'm with you Thrawn, been hoping for an ST: AVE series. I know it's just one book so far but I'll take it. 2015's going to be fun, Dawn arrives @ Ceres, New Horizons @ Pluto, & now the Aventine crew get their turn.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I must admit, I'm more excited by this than the other recent announcement and I'm curious to know if this is based directly after the events of the Fall as it would be nice to see how Ezri copes with being in command again.

Case in point, Geordi was offered a command track posting as Riker's second on Titan, but decided he'd rather be a Chief Engineer.

I felt the same way, but she's kind of been growing on me the last few books. Still not sure I'd buy an Aventine novel though. Oh well, that's what public libraries are for. I might try it out there first.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I'm really looking forward to this novel for the promised Aventine-y goodness!
I love how Ezri has grown in the ten years (in universe) since we saw her as a newly joined ensign in DS9. Ten years is a long time, and during that period we've only seen brief glimpses into her life, but each time she graces a novel, her character becomes stronger and more rounded.
The same goes for Sam Bowers, Lonnnoc Kedair and Simon Tarses.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I think it's worth pointing out that isn't going to be to be an Aventine only novel. I know one of the descriptions I read, either from JJM or Margaret Clark, said that it features more than just the Aventine characters. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was actually given the title for whatever series the other characters are from.
I'm pretty sure some of the other novels with Aventine in it were announced as "Aventine" novels, but released under a different series title.

I'd be curious to read that, as I'm sure others would be, any chance you can supply a link?

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

From JJM's blog, (the link is in the OP by the way ) :

Following my debut in the Star Trek universe with next month's Titan: Absent Enemies e-novella, I have a full-length Star Trek novel releasing in 2015!


It's as Margaret describes: I had a lot of fun writing the novella, and was struck with a great idea for a stand-alone adventure novel set in the 24th Century era. It turned out to fit in well with Pocket Books' plans to focus on missions of exploration, as Margaret describes in the podcast, so I'm pleased to be doing it.

As she says in the interview, it involves the Aventine, the ship of Ezri Dax (who you may recall from Deep Space Nine and many fine Trek novels); there are also many characters familiar to viewers of The Next Generation with major roles. Far too early to say anything else, other than it should be a blast to read!

You know...ever since A Singular Destiny, I've kinda been hoping Sonek would make a repeat appearance on Aventine and be a permanent fixture...a sort of Maturin to Dax's Aubrey.
