Just out of curiosity, who reads the audiobook version?
No one said they read it, just that we listened to it. Audiobooks are perfect for when you're stuck in traffic or out on a jog or bike ride. They are mostly abridged versions that get released so things are cut out, but every once in awhile (like the Vulcan's Soul trilogy) they get released unabridged and you get to listen to a 10 hour audiobook! It's just one more medium on top of Movies, TV, Books, and Comics for us to enjoy trek. You should open your mind and try one out. You might like something new and different.
I'm sure JD meant to ask who READS the audio book in the context of them someone reading the text and thus speaking the words so you can listen to them! Say like Stephen Fry reads the Harry Potter novels for the audio versions!
Well...I feel like an ass...My bad dude. I totally should of realized what JD meant. Q...I mean John DeLancie, read it. I always like it when one of the actors from the series reads an audiobook...they usually get almost all of name pronounciations correct

Well, Beverly, being the 'Captain's Woman' didn't have a stable relationship with muPicard, whom she mentions has wandering eyes for pretty young Ensigns. (Being that Beverly is the medical doctor, she makes it clear that if you get on her bad is hoped that you don't have a sickness while she is on duty).

Troi, as much heat as she gets from TNG fans, is a 'badass' in this book. She senses everything, and doesn't have any problem with getting into your dreams, thoughts, what have you; and the more a person is afraid, the more she likes it!
Worse, Troi likes to play.

In the meantime, the phrase "prejudicial terraforming" says so much about the MU.

There is a huge difference between being a freedom fighter and being free. Hell yes, she was subjugated. She grew up in a world ruled by people who deprived her whole species of rights and dignity. She lived under constant threat to her life, safety, bodily integrity, etc. She saw friends and fellow members of her community tortured, starved, raped, killed. She had her own mother forcibly taken from her when she was a small child and never saw her again. Even though she had the will to fight, that hardly means she wasn't psychologically and physically oppressed to a horrific degree.
Yes, but in the real universe, she always fought and didn't give up. She held onto the notion that she would one day be free.
You are confusing the idea of submission with the idea of subjugation or oppression.

Being subjugated or oppressed does not mean you have submitted to that subjugation, it simply means that a group of people are using organized force to deprive you of your natural rights. And that's exactly what was happening to Kira and every other Bajoran by the Cardassian Union.
