    Thanks to Defcon, I was put onto a Chronic Rift podcast by Keith R.A. DeCandido (KRAD) entitled Dead Kitchen Radio. Episode 8 of the series is all about Star Trek S.C.E., and it is full of great insight into the ebooks series development.
    I enjoyed the broadcast and thought I would share with the rest of you who may have missed it. Here is a link: http://chronicrift.com/node/1599

    He talks about why the Ship was kept small, character development, different series authors contributions, etc.. And the surprising influence the classic show M*A*S*H had on the series. Very enjoyable listen. Check it out:bolian:

    Does anyone know the proper order of the S.C.E. books? I assume Have Tech will Travel, is first in ths series?

    You mean the dead tree edition reprints? Yes, Have Tech, Will Travel was the first, and The Belly of the Beast contained within was the first ebook.

    Yeah, I actually think that was handled really, really well, especially in the first half of the series. I have specific examples in mind, too, but it's hard to talk about them without posting spoilers.
