I do plan on getting the book and reading it but I have to know one thing:

What is Starfleet and the Federation's status at the end of the book?

Achernar...aka Alpha Eridani. That was where Redjac had one of its sprees, right? On the second planet in that system? Heliopolis City?

To the best of my knowledge Geoff Thorne has never had a killing spree on any world.

But I've only known the guy for 7 years or so, he could have had a whole other life before that.

Another thing I thought of that I wanted to mention (and no, this time it does not involve fruit)


In fact, describing that scene as moving really sums up my feelings on the entire book. . . It was simply moving.

Re: Star Trek: Destiny: Lost Souls - Discuss/Grade

Ok So I just wrapped up book three. I stated with book 1 over a week ago and I have to say, being on the road for this long the books were good companions. I found them all to be worthy travel companions. I liked how this book addressed the idea of where the borg came from and how they were eventually taken care of. In fact I think the events of this story, at least from what the borg were tyring to do, was long over due.



Thanks for the good read and for keeping me busy during my travels. Oh and I have a few days to burn while stuck in frigid Utah, anyone have any recommendations as to what to read?

Different Achernar. That one was/is in Federation space. There's another Achernar in Romulan space, seen in Star Charts (which is where I got it to use in Articles as the seat of the Romulan State).

The answer to your first question will be answered in Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer next spring, and the answer to your second would be answered by, respectively, the TNG novel Before Dishonor and the DS9 novels Unity, Worlds of DS9 Volume 2, Warpath, and Fearful Symmetry.

I recommend my own Articles of the Federation, which shows the first year of the Bacco Administration. (Which ends on a hopeful note, something I did not knowing what Dave was going to do to her during the first two months of her second year.... )

In response to your Janeway question in the spoiler section:

The book was Before Dishonor. The short version is, she went out to investigate the cube that Picard effectively neutralized in Resistance. That cube evolved, assimilated her, made her its new queen and was ultimately destroyed.

And yes, Sisko came back as of Unity and has been present in the DS9 relaunch books since then....Worlds of DS9 Bajor (maybe some others too, I can't remember), Warpath and Fearful Symmetry.

Funny, I was just thinking how surprisingly warm it had been here during the last week.

Err, huh? The Achernar in the Romulan map in Star Charts is Alpha Eridani, the real Achernar, and "Wolf in the Fold" did mention that Heliopolis City was on Alpha Eridani II (the name Achernar wasn't used in the episode).

Got a review up here: http://julioangelortiz.livejournal.com/308005.html

The Morgan Bates scenes... I really thought he was going to die. "Bad grammar"... I couldn't help but chuckle that that.

The captain of the other ship (the one named after the samurai... can't remember right now)... had we seen him before?
