Therin was directing that response at a guy whose screen name is captcalhoun. I guess he might feel differently!
Exactly. I didn't think it was necessarily to point out the link there.

I was assuming that captcalhoun would be buying whichever version turns up first, so it just seemed an odd concern coming from him.

I think I'll be buying an omnibus that contains books I already own for the first time.

I guess it'll be about the size of These Haunted Seas.

Ooh, I just realised something that isn't on the schedule so far - Trek XI novelisation, anyone...?
When queried, Margaret answered that novelizations "happen very quickly". Nothing definite was said about a) if there was going to be one; b) who might be in line to write it. There were a number of times during the Pocket Presentation, and on a couple of panels Saturday, when Margaret/Marco said they were focusing on the 24th century "leaving JJ alone" with the 23rd.

To answer some other queries in the thread - the Gorkon and the Bacco administration are in the Destiny trilogy.

Shore Leave is a blast!

Well damn, I did not catch that either. I will probably be buying this as well.

Re: Shore Leave

If anyone is interested, I have updated my MS Word document containing ALL Star Trek fiction published since Bantam, with the exception of the Shatnerverse and Young Adult books.

PM me with your email address and I'll email it across. Please specify Word 2007 or Word 97-03.

I'lll be buying everything except the ST101, the 2009 calendar and Errand of Fury since I don't yet own the previous ones. I need to save some money.

Re: Shore Leave

Didn't someone (TerriO?) swear up and down that Mere Anarchy would never see a dead tree edition, something like a year ago? Not that I'm complaining.

What, another re-telling of the Klingons' destruction of the Guardian? Really, that trilogy was two parts retelling, one part original as it was. Not that I didn't love the alt-McCoy story at least.

I'm certainly not complaining either.

Although I don't own any eBooks, I had been keeping my fingers crossed for a print version of Mere Anarchy

^ For my part, I'm hoping this means we might see Slings and Arrows in assassinated arboreal format year after next.

Same here.

I grieve for the trees, but at the same time I know I will get repeated reading enjoyment from them.

Re: Shore Leave

Wow, that all sounds great.

Although the concept of Ezri Dax as a Captain still makes me sick. I've always disliked Ezri. She grew in the DS9 books. But not enough to be a Captain this soon! Unless we're taking a decades-long jump in time? Even then, it's a bit quick. Oh well.

The Voyager novel intrigues me most. "Full Circle" just makes my mouth water with the potential of Janeway back in Command and/or Voyager returning to the Delta Quadrant without the stranded aspect. Granted, I could be way off, but the ideas simmer...

Not that I recall. We were just told not to expect a print omnibus too soon.

What, another re-telling of the Klingons' destruction of the Guardian?
Sheesh. No one's forcing you to read it. I can't wait to see what David has up his sleeve.

What if the Dax symbiont already qualified as a captain, or at least a commander, in a previous host? Surely the fact that Ezri can tap into so much accumulated knowledge gives her a boost in her abilities and experience?
