LOL

These aliens they stumbled upon are interesting. The gateways sort of remind me of the Iconian gateways from TNG. It also seems that that Tholians know who they are.

Is it just the ebooks ? Updates are easy, but if it's the physical books too...

We could all post our copies direct to Dayton and he cold correct them and send them back.

Can we have his address please ?

Re: Star Trek Vanguard series

Are there any good blueprints of Vanguard anywhere? Are the starship docking bays like the one seen on Spacedock where the ship can fly into them, and the doors close behind the ship but not as big? Or does it just open enough for the saucer section to dock and the rest of the ship sticks out of the dock?

Re: Star Trek Vanguard series

I assumed the ships were enclosed within the station, but, obviously, that's an assumption on my part.

I had thought one of the books (1st or 2nd?) advertised blueprints, but the ebook version of the 1st book didn't include such blueprints. If they're in the 2nd I haven't come across them yet.

The print version of Harbinger had a foldout with station plans. The lateral view and cutaway are available on the Memory Beta page for the station, and an underside view is also available on Dave Mack's blog.

Re: Star Trek Vanguard series

A Constitution-class starship fits inside Vanguard's main docking bay with the doors closed just behind its nacelles. There were diagrams of the station in the print edition of Harbinger, but for reasons that surpass understanding, they weren't included in the eBook version. You can see them here on my website:

Star Trek Vanguard: The Finale Page

Just beware of spoilers! Don't read the series bible, or the annotations for books you haven't read, etc. I'd also avoid most of the linked podcasts until after you finish reading the entire saga.

Thanks!! I'll bookmark the site and check out the additional material as i finish the books. I'll check out the podcasts once I'm done with the series to extend my Vanguard experience.

Re: Star Trek Vanguard series

Book 2 takes a pretty bold Star Trek statement by having a Muslim woman as the Captain of a starship. Considering Muslims today treat women worse then dog crap as seen on many news stories. If this story ever made it to TV I am sure Muslim's would be screaming like stuck pigs over this version of Trek.

^That is by far one of the most ignorant posts i've ever read on this BBS. You should be ashamed of yourself. Generalizations like that have no place here.

Guess you don't watch the news. Ever hear of Sharia Law? No I am not ashamed of myself, the Muslim community should be. Funny how you never hear of them taking a stand against such treatment of women, at least none that gets any news coverage.

I agree with Paris, hanging out down in the TNZ, there is some truly dipshit statements, but this takes the biscuit.

Islam is a massive religion and as multifaceted as Christianity and only a small proportion follow that form of laws.

Wow. That was even worse. By far one of the most intolerant attitudes i've ever observed from a trek fan. Maybe reading some non-politically skewed literature about Islam would help. Education is the best tool to combat ignorance.

Well you wouldn't know it by following news stories I apologize if I was too broad in my comments then.
