And the blurb is now up for Star Tek: The Next Generation - Takedown, which is now set for a Jan. 27 release: http://bit.ly/STTakedown

I finished it a few weeks back and it's with CBS now -- and I have to say I have rarely had so much fun writing. The book is the sort of naval SF story I've always wanted to write; and it is absolutely steeped in Trek lore. Really looking forward to talking more about this one, as the release approaches!
There's no smily for jumping with excitement so I've settled for

Whoa! I'd heard in the other thread this book was going to feature tensions between Picard and Riker, but I never guessed it would go that far. Now this book really has my interest.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I would be annoyed if it was a mirror-Universe/myirad Universe Riker or Picard against regular Riker or Picard. Ain't saying it is....but I would be psyched if it truly was this universe Riker vs Picard....yeah....a little fan-boyish....but I'd read it!

No mirror universe involved.

And that's all I can say this side of San Diego Comic-Con. I won't be at Shore Leave this year, but presuming San Diego's dates don't shift into August, I will do my best to make next year's. I'm off...

Taken some time to come up but BD has it as pre-buy price of £4.26!

http://www.bookdepository.com/Takedo.../9781476782713

(It doesn't stay at that price, so best to move quick)

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I am wondering if Admiral Will Riker has been replaced by his duplicate Thomas Riker in this book.

Also I expect that this story is about what Dax will do in the aftermath of her imprisonment in the Fall series.

Will she obey Admiral Riker's (or the person she thinks is Admiral Riker) orders or will she risk getting into trouble with Starfleet by disobeying him.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

I wonder if Takedown will take place in November/December 2385 or during the exploration mission in 2386. It seems to me like the Enterprise crew has earned a very long vacation for busting Bacco's murderers.

Re: New Aventine novel announced for 2015!

(Figures it would be a thread like this to bring me back after all this time. Good to be back, at any rate. )

This is good news! Any new novel on Ezri Dax is good for me.

For the most part, I'm with Mage on how Ezri has been handled. The DS9 Relaunch gave her some decidedly unlikable attributes--which would've been okay (considering the early explanation that she was just adjusting to her "integration") if we'd seen her growing out of it. Instead, the writers would follow the pattern of her apparently realizing what her problems is...and then the next story focusing on her, she's back to her old problems.

And to be blunt, it got to the point where she was mentally revising history so that it wasn't she who conjured up Jadzia in Avatar...but Julian? (In the same book where she broke up with him...in a manner that REALLY came across like she was trying to put responsibility on him for supposedly never having gotten over Jadzia....)

Now...that being said...I do like, for the most part, how she's been written as Captain. I had some issues with her characterization in Destiny (far too hard-edged), but I loved how KRAD and Uma wrote her...and I'm okay with her in Zero Sum Game. I liked her interactions with Bashir in The Fall series...and I sincerely hope that'll be picked up on, in the books to come.

It seem to me that, as Captain, she seems to have worked out a lot of her issues from the Relaunch.
