Used to be I was all about DS9, but I can't say that anymore, mostly since I've forgotten what's going on in the series and need to reread it.
But hey, having forgotten what's going on in a favorite series is a blessing in disguise. Sure, it can feel redundant at times rereading things, but for those elements you've forgotten, it's almost like be able to experience it for the first time again. What a pleasure!
I disagree with your opinion of the movie, but I will defend to the death your right to watch it!

Re: Vanguard

You are absolutely correct. I've only done one re-read of the complete series so far, and that was right before Worlds of DS9 came out. The series just isn't a "MUST READ before any other book" type series like it used to be for me.

I may change my mind about that after reading Fearful Symmetry, but then again I may not. For like I said, the series has lost some momentum in my mind and while I think it's due to the fact that it's been a while since the last book and in no way reflective upon the content of the storyline itself, it has still caused me to reorder my purchasing perspective.

I still don't feel like I'm really putting my thoughts out there clearly, but please don't think I'm bashing the DS9 Relaunch, for it's what got me into Trek Literature in the first place. I guess I've just missed reading it to the point that I've gotten used to it not being around, so that even if it does come back, I might not rush right out to "jump back in" as quickly as I might have previously if the books were coming out a little closer together.

I'm the complete opposite here, the longer it takes for the books to come out the more anxious I become, and the more I want to read it.

Re: Vanguard

Interesting tidbit I found this morning.

Was re-reading the graphic novel "Debt of Honor" by Chris Claremont and noticed the mention of "Watchtower" class outposts being built out toward the Romulan neuteral zone. Mind you this was published back in 1992 well before we got the Watchtower class Vanguard station in the novels. Of course, in the graphic novel a watchtower class station is shown to be built on an asteroid. Still found this interesting.
