Next-most-obvious guess: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock novelization?

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

I suppose it helps that I just read that novel.

New Quote:

The doctor shook his head, suddenly strangely embarrased at having been misunderstood, as though caught in a grave imposition. "Not an honor debt," he assured her hastily. "A favor." Then, swallowing hard, Bashir sat as straight as he could, and clenched his hands behind his back. "I was wondering if I might impose on you to set a fractured bone...."

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

I don't think so. I've reread that recently and it doesn't ring a bell. Of course, that also means I don't know which book it is from.

PS: Why do you say fictitously yours?

It's an affectation that turned into a habit. When I first started using the Trent Roman persona on a regular basis, it was at a free-wheeling amateur fiction website (both fan- and original), and there was no signature function as modern forums and bulletin boards have, so I started tacking that onto my posts as a thematically appropriate way to sign my posts. Eventually, it just became ingrained. Hell, it's gotten to the point that I sign almost all my correspondence with 'yours', regardless of the persona I'm operating under. Technically, it's still accurate since Trent Roman is not my 'legal' identity, but rather a nom-de-plume/guerre. And I've always had a soft spot for the ridiculously elaborate way folk used to sign their missives a few centuries back, so you could say it's also a deliberate archaism I've become fond of.

I remain, as always, your most humble and fictitious servant,
Trent Roman

Ah yes, from I remain, as always, your most ob't servant. I like it!

Now back to your regularly scheduled game, still being mulled over (unless Trent's got it).
