"Q Are Cordially Invited"

The real story of Picard and Crusher's wedding? With Q as best man? Sounds intriguing, but one would have to wonder why no mention was made of it in Q & A.

The wedding of Captain Jean-Luc Picard to Doctor Beverly Crusher was a small, private affair overseen by the mayor of La Barre, France, and witnessed by the groom’s sister-in-law and the mayor’s wife. At least, that’s what the happy couple always told their friends. On the anniversary of that blessed day, however, Worf and Geordi La Forge manage to coax the real story out of the pair, to discover a tale of mythical treasure and a lost civilization in the Delta Quadrant. It all begins when the omnipotent being Q crashes the festivities, declaring himself best man and bringing along an unwilling guest as a surprise for the groom.

Because it hadn't happened yet in Q & A. Picard and Crusher got married between Before Dishonor and Greater Than the Sum.

Re: "Q Are Cordially Invited"

Anyone want to take bets on who the unwilling guest is?
I'm betting it's Vash, who has history with Q after all.

Re: "Q Are Cordially Invited"

Sounds like it will be a fun story. BTW it seems that the title is actually Q are Cordially Uninvited... (Oops looks like Startrek.com has it wrong, but that's how the title is on the "cover" and the Simon & Schuster site, Amazon, etc.) so will have to see what that means, lol.

Yeah, Vash seems pretty logical to me.

Re: "Q Are Cordially Invited"

Is this e-book only or will there be a paperback?

I was on Barnes & Noble, and I believe it's only being offered as an e-book.

Re: "Q Are Cordially Invited"

The original e-books are novellas, too short to be published individually as paperbacks. It's possible they may eventually be collected in trade paperback, but it's been several years since we've seen a TPB reprint of Trek e-books.

Re: "Q Are Cordially Invited"

We're still waiting for the final Corps of Engineers collection, Slings and Arrows, and what I hope will be The Struggle Within and The Stuff of Dreams released together, since both are TNG-relaunch stories featuring the Kinshaya.
