    Nope, she just drops it into a pocket after use.....oh. :)

    And although I'd like a little less TOS I wouldn't cut yours Greg. Thumbs up to the TMP idea though !

    It actually felt a bit odd at first, writing the Voyager crew for the first time in some seventeen (!) years. I watched a whole batch of Seven-centric episodes just to get back in the groove . . . .

    Very true. I would love a TMP era novel by Greg however.

    Honestly, I think Christopher Bennett knows and loves that era better than I do, but I have been thinking about the gap between TFF and TUC . . . .

    That time period would be very good and I would defiantly read a TOS book taking place then.

    It's OK, I don't think anyone would actually take issue with you reading said book! ;)

    ^Me too. I'm amazed there aren't more stories set during that era, but that topic was already covered in another thread, so I'll just leave it there.....

    There and back again...
    The gap between TFF and TUC is, personally, my favorite "era" for stories with the original crew. Plenty of room there, and anything set during that period immediately gets my attention and money.

    Since there have only been a few novels set in those years, though, in my personal continuity I fill in the "gaps" with my favorite stories from the DC Comics run, a good chunk of which took place then. They even had Saavik back on board for a while, which made me happy. :)

    Now, I also love stories set after TUC, but let's face it, that period is now really overcrowded.

    Christopher's busy - for some time (I hope) on Enterprise !

    There's a decent gap between TFF and TUC and you really do have an affinity for the characters.

    There's certainly room for a book or two there, or even an *ahem* series !

    Just a thought...

    While I definately share your desire for more "movie era" TOS, there is no such thing as "enough" TOS in ANY era.

    And, as far as Saavik goes, the more Robin Curtis, the better. I have nothing against Alley, I just think Curtis was better.

    Another great movie era that needs exploring.

    Make it so. :techman:

    You are the only person I have ever come across that even liked (let alone preferred) Robin Curtis in the role. :eek:

    I do too. I always thought she was more "vulcan" than Alley. Robin Curtis' Saavik seemed more like Spock. After reading her background, not only the half romulan thing, but the fact that she was raised by Spock and his parents, it seemed even more so. That being said, Kirsty Alley was still quite good :)

    I prefer Curtis to Alley, and I believe Margaret Wander Bonanno does too; she wrote Unspoken Truth based more on Curtis's version of Saavik.

    Although, to be honest, my preference has more to do with the actresses in general than specifically with how they played Saavik.

    And now I have come across a bunch of people that like (and even prefer) Robin Curtis in the role.

    I like that life can still surprise me ! :)

    Don't worry. I'm definitely in the Kirstie Alley camp! :)

    I prefer Curtis as Saavik, and I also hope for books between TFF and TUC.
