    I'm a little disappointed to read that. It seems that anything big that Pocket do with canonical characters gets undone sooner or later.

    I hope we get to see AGT Riker (and "Future Imperfect" Picard!) on covers soon!

    ^What does AGT stand for in this case? An episode title? I'm missing the reference...


    Never mind. All Good Things...

    Please Disregard :)

    I wonder what the full ramifications of Riker outranking Picard will be?

    You mean aside from Picard reporting to an Admiral who is also his BFF? I doubt there will be many ramifications.

    Why would there be ramifications? Starfleet officers follow the chain of command of for the most part.

    This is how I think Riker will greet Picard "What up, beeeotch!"

    I really think Riker's more of a "Sup homey" kind of guy.

    Doesn't Riker's promotion mean the end of Star Trek: Titan?

    Either Titan will become Riker's flagship (AGT style... maybe they'll even bolt a third nacelle onto her ;)), or I think the Titan's going to become another Aventine-style cameo ship.

    You mean the Aventine's everywhere cameo? I am surprised that the ship hasn't shown up in TOS land.

    Not necessarily. DS9 didn't end when Sisko or Kira left the station (though Sisko's around quite a bit anyway), so why would Titan end because Riker's moved up in rank? I agree with those who see Riker taking the vessel as his flagship (much as Kirk did during TWOK and Riker himself did during "All Good Things...") and remaining in command of the vessel until a permanent replacement can be found. OTOH, why not have Vale move up and take the center seat? Or maybe this is finally the opportunity for Worf to have a command of his own?

    I must say this worries me. Titan is my favorite 24th century series, and I wouldn't be interested in it without Riker and Troi aboard.

    In the other thread on this topic somebody did bring up the fact that we are getting the Titan e-book Absent Enemies after The Fall ends. I can't remember if it anyone has said if it takes place before or after The Fall, but it does mean that the series most likely won't be ending with The Poisoned Chalice.

    Absent Enemies does indeed take place after the events of The Poisoned Chalice and The Fall.

    The fall series is amazing. I wish each author was doing 2 books and we could have a 10 part extravaganza.

    I'm kind of expecting Worf to get Enterprise when Picard quits to become a Federation Ambassador.

    If we lose Will to the Admiralty, can we have Tom back ?
