Aren't we due for the next "Vanguard" novel?

I keep looking for it and I don't see any sign of it...

Re: Aren't we due for the next "Vanguard" novel?

I don't know why,but Vanguard has fast become my favourite Trek incarnation.As I have said before it seems like Trek being done by HBO.
Really looking forward to the next installment.....not something I get to say about Treklit too much anymore.

Re: Aren't we due for the next "Vanguard" novel?

my youngest elder sister read them over the last week or so and whined when i told her #4 wasn't out til next year.

she bitched about the book scheduling, so i told her what the authors say on here *adopts authoratitve voice* 'the books are split between like ten series, there's not really been more books of any one series than another except in '06 for TOS' 40th and last year for TNG's 20th and besides, if you read other authors you only get one book a year if you're lucky and it's amazing that Trek's books are going strong when the shows are dead and some tie-in lines barely manage three books a year...'

It's unlikely to be anything you can post in a forum like this.

^ I've been informed by the admins that this is no longer a PG-13 - or even R - rated board language-wise.


Aside from the Star Wars series (which I read only occasionally) and the now-defunct Harry Potter septalogy, the non-Star Trek series I follow consist only of the works of dead authors (mostly science fiction writers of the 20th Century, more than a few of whom regularly produced two or more novels a year, along with short works, but who will of course never write again).

Weirdly, though fewer Star Wars novels are released every year, I find the progress of that line more satisfying than Star Trek's. Aside from A Time To Kill, A Time To Heal, The Good That Men Do, Serpents Among the Ruins, and Crucible (particularly Provenance of Shadows), I've not liked any new Star Trek novel published this decade which wasn't either part of the Deep Space Nine relaunch or an installment of the Vanguard series. I haven't yet read Diane Duane's The Empty Chair, so that list may grow by one more (I loved The Romulan Way), but altogether, the Star Trek novel line has been less than I'd hoped, especially while the series I enjoy have produced only one novel between them in the last two years.

Alas, 2001-2003, when the relaunch produced four novels a year.

^Er... actually, they don't use the dartboard anymore. Not since there was a bit of 'sabotage' after one the janitorial staff 'accidently' took it down for a night. (In retrospect, making half the board DS9-R may have been too obvious... )

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I've been here for eight years. This was NEVER a PG-13/R board as far as language went. There were never any restrictions, other than keeping it out of the titles.

On topic - I look forward to the next Vanguard books and I too deplore less Trek books being published.

My apologies, my impressions were based on the old FAQ (which referenced movie ratings, IIRC) and the previously somewhat tamer (if not quite PG-13/R, as is inevitable in uncensored systems) board of the period of the TNZ crackdowns. I also didn't intend to be snide, if I may have come across that way. I'm not pleased with the increase in ribaldry on the board, but recognize it as my preference.
