It doesn't involve Worf thinking about Jadzia, does it?

My first thought: Warpath?

Same series, but an earlier book. Actually, that goes for Lesser Evil even more.

Yep, it was the very first sentence of the book actually. It was Vaughn thinking about Prynn as he watched her getting blasted out of her chair during the battle at the beginning of the book.

Guess it wasn't as easy as I thought.

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

Damn, this means I have to dig out a quote now, doesn't it?

Give me a few minutes...

Edit: Here we go.

"For a long moment, no words were spoken.

And then she said simply, 'One for the road?'

I smiled and accommodated her. It seemed only polite."

This one's a hard one.

I think we'll all need a clue for this one.

And I had sought to craft a memorable line. Oh, well....

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

^ It was a memorable line. I knew instantly as soon as I read it that it had to be Vaughn. Because Lesser Evil had the Ruriko flashbacks, I jumped to that first. Sometimes even my encyclopedic mind fails me....

Yup, the last three lines.

Damn, I had hoped it would be harder than that!
