Re: Q & A Query (SPOILERS)

Of course I do consider your work, from what I have read and Q-Squared, superb literature, I do find them a lot of fun... Would you say they're bad, though? I think ASHES OF EDEN, SPECTRE and CAPTAIN'S GLORY were particularly good. What do you say?
Like I said, not my thing. *shrug*


PS: I wish THE ART OF THE IMPOSSIBLE was made, in some sort of way. Its THAT good. Then again, if you must know me, I wish all ST novels I have to have been canon. Except for ENGINES OF DESTINY - THAT was dreadful, what do you think?
Well, thanks, but TAOTI would be just about impossible (pardon the pun) to film because the actors are all the wrong ages -- or, in the cases of Mark Lenard and John Colicos, dead. I suppose you could do it as an animated feature, but then you're back to the dead problem with Colicos and Lenard (and yes, I know other people could do Kor and Sarek, and that in fact James Doohan did Kor's voice in "The Time Trap" on TAS, but it just wouldn't be the same).


NOTE: Sorry if I bore you terribly with my questions and all... Its not all that often that I can find a ST writer in these forums... Much less, a good one!
Not bored at all, but there are lots of Trek authors in this forum.....

^^Well, Ben Cross could do Sarek's voice. Not sure who could do Kor... James Callis?

Sorry if I seemed to be persistent in getting an answer out of you there. But I wanna ask, one last thing:

Does your "Articles of the Federation" contradict the Shatnerverse (I truly hate that term, you know) novels, as far as "Captain's Blood" and "Captain's Glory" are concerned? It won't really matter, cause if I buy the book I will only be interested in a good story, but I would've appreciated some 'heads-up' about it, as I have, sorta, formulated my own continuity of what happened in Star Trek and all.

Oh, did I mention that "Art of the Impossible" is part of it?

CGI animation wouldn't be out of the question, IMO. I could see it happen.

Anywho, even if its moot to discuss, it is certainly a novel I would've been interested in seeing.

Question: With the new film coming up and all, do you think that further novels from the TNG/DS9/VOY era will be made? I just wonder, as the new film may be set in an entirely new timeline/universe. What do you predict will be the future of that era of Star Trek novels will be?

Hey, like I said, I'm new to this. Besides for one-two Shatnerverse threads and a Q-Squared thread I made, I don't much frequent around.

Glad to know that, though. Great, in fact!

Well, Articles is consistent with the Titan books and, from what I understand, the Captain's Whozits trilogy isn't entirely consistent with Titan. *shrug* Either way, I doubt there are any active contradictions. Not really much overlap there either way...

I don't think anything significant is going to change. I can tell you that further novels in the 24th-century (and the 22nd, for that matter) will be told, as they are planned and scheduled for 2009 and beyond. The only thing that might change is TOS novels, but how much and in what way has yet to be announced.

Right. The third Captain's ____ book shows Titan making its first-ever first contact with a new race sometime in 2381, while in the Titan book series, the ship has made quite a few first contacts by mid-2380. Also, I think the second book in the trilogy shows Titan still involved in Romulan reconstruction months after it ended that mission and went exploring in the TTN series.

Also, I believe the first book in the trilogy conflicts with the DS9 Relaunch on the question of when/whether Bajor joins the Federation.

Nah, we'll just recast them, then redesign Trek from the ground-up. Seems to be the new formula for dealing with Trek in Hollywood.

Oh, did I say that out loud?

Seriously, though... if this new Trek movie manages not to tank, I wonder if there will be any nibbles on doing something with any of the books or book series. I'd rather see a Corps of Engineers movie or Titan than a rehash of past history.
