    Really? The Nasat's antennae prick up in excitement!

    My copy had dispatched, so I'll be getting it very soon.

    WOW! I don't bother with many TOS novels (least favourite era, and not keen on the stand-aloneness) but I did really enjoy the excerpt from this one so was pondering it, depending on reviews. But now I'm sold in a flash; off to order a copy!

    Too early for mine to have shipped.

    They are critical. The Ascendants in the mid-23rd century--or some Ascendants, at least--were actively hunting the Bajorans.

    Well.

    Wasn't going to buy because I'm not huge on TOS books, but this made it for me.

    Hmm... I generally like TOS books and the era's stand-aloneness. Might have to think twice about this one now.

    Holy crap! I was already pretty interested in this, but now my interest just went way up.

    My interest level just jumped from 'Oh great - yet another bloody TOS 5 year mission story' to sort of interested...

    Edit: just cancelled my 'we'll get it to you some time this year' order with Amazon UK and reordered it with The Book Depository who should get it to me in the next week...

    Yeah, I think I might have to grab this one now, just for that little tidbit about the Bajorans.

    It makes me wonder what other nods to the future AiE will have?

    I'm glad I looked at those spoilers, because I also just went from "meh, another 5YM TOS book" to "must read!" :techman:

    Does anyone know yet in which year (or the stardates for when) this takes place? Just curious.

    I like interconnected books and I like standalone books. So I pretty much buy all Trek books... :shrug:

    Just wish they still published some 24th century books set during the various TV series.

    Definitely downloading tomorrow. After a reading a string of 24th century books and The Rings of Time, I'm in the mood for more TOS. :techman:

    I'm also glad I read the spoiler. My interest was 0 (don't need another 5 year mission book), and now it is 9.
