Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

I've only read about a quarter of the TOS novels, and I would have thought that I would remember such a conversation, so I'm 90% sure it's not in any of the ones I've read.

Clue please??

Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

I still think it's a Friedman book, so I'll go with Faces of Fire or Legacy

It isn't Renegade. Nor is the book physically bigger than a breadbox. And no one yet has even guessed the author.
