    Holy shit dude! That looks awesome! Consider it pre-ordered :klingon:

    "Each chapter also celebrates famous Klingons, warships, and battles, and the role they've played in advancing the Klingon Empire."

    ..
    .any chance of a Klag mention?

    Oh yeah, totally gonna preorder this.

    The only way this could be better is if they gave a free eBook copy for on the go reading.

    I don't know who that is, but I can promise at least a mention of Klag. ;)

    Very nice!!! Love your writing, especially your Klingon books!! What's even better is that it's an actual Star Trek HARDCOVER book?!!!! :eek: Seems like ages since a hc book was published. ;)

    Sweet! Since this is KRAD, can we assume this will be in continuity with the novelverse, unlike the last main reference book (the one about the early Federation)?

    ^ It will, yes. There will be references to Morjod's coup, the Borg invasion, Klag being the head of the Fifth Fleet, Lukara forming the Order of the Bat'leth, Presidents Zife and Bacco, and some other stuff besides. :)

    Awesome! This looks like it will be a definite buy. I might even break my own rule and pick up the hardcover, if they don't do an e-book.

    If you buy it off of Amazon, with their new Amazon Matchbook program, you just might get your wish...
