    I just did an Amazon book search for Star Trek the Next Generation and found the first Titan book on page 3. Does that count?

    ^ Not really, as the search found "Star Trek: The Next Generation" in Mike Martin's bio that's displayed on the book's page (the book itself is listed as "Taking Wing (Star Trek: Titan, Book 1)."

    Another example: I did a search for "Dayton Ward" and it pulls up pretty much every book where my name is mentioned in acknowledgments or in the booklist they used to have in the back of the novels. Doesn't mean I wrote all those books. :)

    Every B&N and Borders I have been to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and the bricks and mortar shops in the UK, they all have the Titan books after the TNG ones. I pointed out that they were a separate series, and the staff member (who knew what she was talking about for a change) pointed that Riker was in it and he was TNG, so it goes with TNG.

    fictionwise.com also used to list Taking Wing as Star Trek: The Next Generation Taking Wing (Titan book 1), as if Titan was a TNG miniseries like the ATT series. I don't know if it still does.

    Simon & Schuster chose to stop selling titles via Fictionwise.

    When ever I go to a new town or see a book shop I've never been in, I go in and make a bee line for the Trek/Media tie in section, normally, they are just bundled up together.

    Same here--but...there are times, when I hit a used bookstore (I Love The Smell Of Old Books In The Afternoon), I find in the Sci-Fi section a bunch of Trek books mixed with non-trek books in a complete jumble--and I end up helping the store sort it out In Order Catergorical ('Cause I'm the very model of a Modern Major General! :))

    (Sorry...just trying to take Dayton's advice concerning humor. How am I doing, Mr. Ward?)

    :lol: Oh, I'm the same. Sometimes I arrange them chronologically instead, though.

    I just looked up Next Gen at S&S's website, and they actually don't have Titan under TNG... but they do have Forged in Fire under TNG.

    Well, it's become very obvious over the last few years that the people in charge of the website know nothing about Trek. This is not the first time I've spotted something like this.

    That's a line from Star Trek: Insurrection where Troi said Ugh to Riker's beard as well. :).

    ^Is it, now? No way! ;)


    I will say--the sooner the boys at Memory Beta put this Ezri image up at the beginning of her entry, instead of that comic image, the better.

    Paths of Disharmony has a page up now, as well, with its blurb:

    Hmmm, sounds like we might be seeing our first member consider switching from one group to the other.

    I'm a little amused at the blurb calling Andor an "ally" of the UFP. I was under the impression that it was a member of the Federation....

    Well, the members of the Federation are allies, yes?

    Besides, I think "ally" in that context sounds better than "member."

    But, I'm biased.

    I'd love that, too--but the reason they have the bloody awful comic pic is because it's supposedly the only clear image they've got with a red command collar.

    Ah...I guess, but...by that argument, a family member could also be called a "friend of the family"....

    Or Pennsylvania (one of the "Founding Members", if you will, of the USA--much like Andor is for the UFP) could be called an "ally" of the United States....

    Okeydoke. :)

    BTW...do the writers write the blurbs usually--or is that up to marketers?
