Did I dream the following?

I can only vaguely remember this and maybe I'm mixing it up.


Kirk and crew find some portals - during the story, kirk disappears in one of the portals. The next book in the series has totally unconnected people and kirk is never mentioned.


Am I mixing up a couple of books ? do I need to up my meds? Did this really happen?

Yeah, that sounds like Gateways.

The conclusion to the Kirk story, indeed the conclusion to all of the Gateways stories, is to be found in Gateways book seven: What Lay Beyond.

Re: Did I dream the following?

Yeah, and each of the first six entries in a different series, so that would be why the next book followed different people. I check on Memory Beta, and the second one was the second, and last Challenger book.

Re: Did I dream the following?

here's another one - friend of Wesley's - sees nothing at all wrong with killing due to coming from a planet when people who are different (mutants) are killed instantly. What book is that?

I think it was Debtor's planet - I'm sure it's done in a comical fashion when the crew constantly misunderstand the character and the fact that to him killing someone is like blowing your noise...

Re: Did I dream the following?

That sounds interesting. Was the book itself actually humorous? There weren't nearly enough "funny" TNG books...
