Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I'm waiting to see how the books actually read first. My biggest fear of course is how the Borg will be defeated. I'm definitely hoping the one blurb is wrong about settling the issue.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

From David Macks Homepage:

STAR TREK: DESTINY – Book I: Gods of Night
(Oktober 2008)

Half a decade after the Dominion War and more than a year after the rise and fall of Praetor Shinzon, the galaxy's greatest scourge returns to wreak havoc upon the Federation — and this time its goal is nothing less than total annihilation.

Elsewhere, deep in the Gamma Quadrant, an ancient mystery is solved. One of Earth's first generation of starships, lost for centuries, has been found dead and empty on a desolate planet. But its discovery so far from home has raised disturbing questions, and the answers harken back to a struggle for survival that once tested a captain and her crew to the limits of their humanity.

From that terrifying flashpoint begins an apocalyptic odyssey that will reach across time and space to reveal the past, define the future, and show three captains — Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise, William Riker of the U.S.S. Titan, and Ezri Dax of the U.S.S Aventine — that some destinies are inescapable.
STAR TREK: DESTINY – Book II: Mere Mortals
(November 2008)

On Earth, Federation President Nanietta Bacco gathers allies and adversaries to form a desperate last line of defense against an impending Borg invasion. In deep space, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Captain Ezri Dax join together to cut off the Collective's route to the Alpha Quadrant.

Half a galaxy away, Captain William Riker and the crew of the Starship Titan have made contact with the reclusive Caeliar — survivors of a stellar cataclysm that, two hundred years ago, drove fissures through the structure of space and time, creating a loop of inevitability and consigning another captain and crew to a purgatory from which they could never escape.

Now the supremely advanced Caeliar will brook no further intrusion upon their isolation, or against the sanctity of their Great Work. … For the small, finite lives of mere mortals carry little weight in the calculations of gods.

But even gods may come to understand that they underestimate humans at their peril.
Still nothing specific on Book 3....

Wow, just wow, that sounds awsome. I'm assuming since they came from David's website that they should be accurate. Although judging by the other descriptions on the site they are probably not the actul blurbs.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

The blurb for Book 1 doesn't say much, but I do like what the Book 2 blurb suggests about that volume and the preceeding one. This should be an edge-of-your-seat kind of story.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Yeah it sounds great. The fact of that the borg invasion doesn't seem to happen within the first two books seems to downplay the fact these are "borg" books and more a galactic mystery.
So this aint about Borg invasion, more of an "impending" borg invasion.

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Now this is what I call a story.

The Borg only seem to be bit players in these so we can expect them to have their (hopefully final) exeunt in book 3.

Now I just need to read GTTS, hurry up Amazon UK!!

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I'm still trying to figure out the 4 ships thing, because those only mention 3. Unless they are including the ship that's been destroyed, which judging by what we've seen and heard might be

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

I'm so glad David Mack is writing this Trilogy.

I've been a fan of Mr. Mack's ever since Vance Hawkins got captured and decided to mess with the interrogator just for shits and giggles.

Can't wait to see what's next.

I guess not. I wasn't sure, so I figured I'd just be careful.
