    There's a piece of eye candy posted recently. I do not believe it's in the chapter list, though.

    EDIT:

    For those who've read up to it, page 190 and another on page 192.

    I just caught back up, and wanted to give this a bump - especially since it is getting back to Trek again. :techman:

    They're also coming up on 1987, which of course means the introduction of the band T'Pau (or did they go with the name 'Klingon' in this timeline, like Carol has suggested they might have in ours if a different episode had been on while they were deciding on a name?) to the American Top 40. I'm hoping they fare better in the slightly better educated America of ITL, and maybe at the same time knock The Bangles down just enough to keep Suzanna Hoffs from getting full enough of herself to try to go solo and destroy the band. :techman:

    Emperor Norton -

    I just now bothered to look into how to sign up for an account over at the alt history board, and saw your comments about my comments here. Thanks. But I'm still waiting for my approval to post over there, so I'll pass on these thoughts to you. If you can share them with Brainbin first, that would be very cool of you.

    1. T'Pau formed in 1986, so he's not getting off that easy. (More seriously, he can obviously cover whatever he wants, but I just wanted to remind him that his reason he "can't" cover this matter isn't one. ;) )

    2. If it ends with 1986, then you're right - he won't get to Judgment Rites or the 25th anniversary. But he *could* say something about Star Trek: The Kobayashi Alternative and Star Trek: The Promethian Prophecy games (and also about the novel series, now that I'm seeing those were published by Simon & Schuster and that comes to mind) if he wants/thinks of anything good involving them.

    3. 1986?! BOOOOOO! I was hoping he'd catch all the way up to the present! :lol::vulcan: (<--only half kidding - although I guess the matter *was* pretty much sealed with the date on the Baba Wawa interview in the first entry). Oh well. It's been great. I hope maybe he will at least do an "epilogue" edition with any interesting notes he might have about things that would have changed between the interview and ITTL 2015 because of That Wacky Redhead? :D

    Nevermind - they just verified me. I'll post it. :techman:
