Oh nice, I hadn't even thought of that! That would definitely be a surprising twist, although it would still involve the death of a major character.

Half a major character, to be precise.

Yes, apparently TNG is where characters from other Trek series go to die.

Because after Dax is done with Ezri, it's off to the symbiont pools to make worm-whoopie and replenish the symbiont population as per the moratorium on joining imposed by the current Trill President in Trill: Unjoined.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I had the weirdest idea last night. You know how characters have a tendency to die in David Mack novels? (No offense -- it keeps you on your toes.) Well, what if 85% of the main characters of TNG, DS9, VOY, SCE, Titan, and New Frontier were killed? Then all of the remaining main characters could be grouped together onto one ship -- an Enterprise, maybe -- and then instead of having five on-going series, it'd just be one "Star Trek: Destined" series. Or something.

I wouldn't want that but the thought amused me.

That would be interesting having maybe one or two characters from each series survive but I imagine coordinating 8+ novels in a series in a year and keeping the quality and continuity up between them would be a nightmere.

A crew with Picard, Dax, Worf, Troi, B'Elanna, Seven, Shelby, Gomez and the EMH would be interesting though.

Yeah, what she said. It would be cool to see, but I wouldn't want to lose that many great characters.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Hey guys, just found these synopses on Amazon UK for all three Destiny books. I know the first one has been posted before, the original post in the thread, but I thought I would post it here again along with everything else so we can get a more complete picture:

Destiny: Gods of the Night

The Borg return -- with a vengeance! Blitzkreig attacks by the single-minded aliens with their hive mentality and their mission to assimilate every intelligent being they encounter are leaving whole worlds aflame. No one knows how they are slipping past Starfleet's defences, so Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew are detailed to find out -- and to put a stop to it if they can. Meanwhile, thousands of light years away, Captain Will Riker and the crew of the Titan follow bizarre energy pulses to a mysterious, hidden world. There they find a figure out of legend: a Starfleet captain long thought dead. And at the same time, over in the Gamma Quadrant, newly promoted Captain Dax and her crew investigate the wreck of the Earth starship Columbia NX-02, missing in action for more than two centuries.

Destiny: Mere Mortals:

The Borg have found a secret passage through subspace and are using it to attack the Federation. But the passage is only one of many that the Enterprise crew have discovered inside a nebula. Working together, Captains Picard and Dax must find the right one before they can lead a counterstrike to stop the Borg invasion. Meanwhile, Captain Riker and the crew of the Titan are being held hostage by the powerful reclusive aliens know as the Caeliar. Their freedom hinges of the action of fellow-prisoner Erica Hernandez, commander of the long-lost starship Columbia. Hernandez has lived among the Caeliar for centuries, enduring disasters, accidental time travel and interstellar exiles. After so long, can she be persuaded to fight for her freedom, or is it too late for the Titan as well as for her?

Destiny: Lost Souls

An armada of several thousand Borg cubes has wiped out a fleet of ships sent by the Federation and its allies. This time the goal of the Collective is not assimilation but extermination. Jean-Luc Picard, Will Riker and Ezri Dax unite in a final desperate bid to halt the Borg's genocidal progress through known space. But their three starships - the Enterprise, the Titan and the Aventine - are no match for the Borg armada. Or are they? With them is Erica Hernandez, former captain of the missing starship Columbia. Endowed with powers and insight gained from centuries spent with the alien Caeliar, she can end the Borg threat forever - or transform it into a menace which will devour the entire galaxy.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Are these legit? I remember reading the first one, but I can't remember if it was real or not.

Yippie, more Borg.

But seriously, I hope those blurbs aren't legit. David Mack will have a very hard time to overcome the wide spread borg fatigue among readers if they're legit. I'll get them anyway since I trust David to have written some good novels, but those blurbs doesn't really make them move up on my priority list.

David didn't say it was fake or ask that it be removed in the OP. But here's the question. Think of all the people who are going to die, and tell me that this isn't a Mack Original???

Defcon, please think about what you're saying

This is Mack we're talking about. Who better to stop the Borg in their cybernetic tracks than The Knife himself?

I thought it was suppose to a "Legend" - this is some Enterprise nobody isn't it?
