    You're right, but it has been done without a reset and with some impact, (although not in Star Trek). I direct you to Doctor Who's Logopolis.

    You're all thinking inside the box. 24th century fictional Earth is perfectly safe. The Destiny trilogy is going to destroy the real, 21st century Earth.

    But we already have the Undead Kirk in the Shatnerverse...

    Just a stab in the dark, but has it been suggested yet that the almighty incorruptible Jean-Luc Picard might just get sent to the big Vineyard in the sky? I hate speculation just as much as the next guy, but Picard has pretty much been the standard of modern Trek for just about 21 years now. He's got to get killed at SOME point.

    As long as there's a TNG series, I'm sure there'll be Picard.

    I mean, who'd take over command if he was killed? Worf? Remember that DS9 episode where Sisko said that Worf would probably never get his own command (after he bungled a mission to rescue Dax)?

    To me, the novels have asserted themselves to continue the Trek universe in their own right, so to speak. So they exist in a universe that has marched forward almost as if they are continuations of the TV series' they have in their titles, which I guess is just another way to say they are relaunch novels. With that said, in Resistance, Worf seems to resolve this "never to command a ship" issue with Picard and accepts the permanent posting as First Officer. It also bears mentioning that Sisko is no end-all/ be all authority on Starfleet/Federation protocol. His exact wording was something to the effect that he might not be offered a command of his own. Regardless, Worf certainly more than redeemed himself and showed his capacity for command with his actions as the Defiant Commander on-screen and off (Battle for Betazed for instance), his removal of an out-of-control Chancellor Gowron and subsequent installation of Martok which helped return the Klingon empire to a position to aid the quadrant in defeating the Dominion, in the novels by his involvement with being an Ambassodor to Klingon including defusing the situation on Tezwa in the final three A Time To... novels that could have potentially engulfed the Federation and Klingon Empire in war again. That doesn't even cover what he did as First Officer in Resistance and Before Dishonor, not to mention what he might do in the Greater than the Sum and Destiny novels. Its still conjecture on my part, but I could see the logical progression if that were the case.

    I think he's trustworthy in that regard. He *is* a Captain, after all, and a damn good one at that!

    The point is one Captain's opinion on future actions isn't a bible to gauge Worf's career by.

    BTW, I edited my original post to try to make my comments a bit more clear.

    He did a few impressive things in the XO position in Q & A, too...........

    Which, I have to say, is the best use of Worf in the TNG relaunch. In fact, so many of what Q had been up to during the course of the television series was reasonably resolved over the course of that novel, which I completely ditched the rest of my day to read when I bought it. Now, someone remind me who wrote that? ;)

    Only if you call Sarah Sutton attempting to act "sad" for about fifteen second impact. Because beyond that, the destruction of one-third of the universe in 1981 had pretty much no repercussions.

    That's because it was the boring third.

    Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

    There are a number of possibilities from the twenty-second century onward. It could be anyone and it might not even be a Starfleet captain, could be a Klingon captain. I'm just eagerly awaiting these books and saving up for the post-Destiny fest.

    David, is your trilogy over the 300,000 word mark?

    Surely it's going to be someone the readers will give a damn about?

    I don't see Silva La Forge fitting into that group.
