    I thought it might fun to do a new quote game. I think we've done this here in the past, but I can't remember exactly what kind of rules it had so here's how I would play it. Someone will post a quote from a random Trek book, and people will have to identify the book. You can post one clue when you first post the quote and every day someone doesn't get it right, whoever posted the quote will post another clue, like the author or pub date. This will continue until someone gets the correct book and then the person who got it right will post a new quote from a different book.
    Clue 1: It's a TOS book written before TNG premiered.

    I feel bad because I don't remember the actual quote, but I remember the peculiar spelling of Jenniver from The Entropy Effect ...

    Damn, I was hoping that one was old enough it would take longer. You got it, so go ahead and post you're quote.

    I know I've read that line...I'm going to guess TNG: Reunion based on the hint.

    Nope, cold, sorry :).

    Alas, it's almost bed time in this corner of the universe (well, more like long past to be honest :)), so I might be some time until the next response.

    FWIW, I think this was the last incarnation of this game here.

    It hasn't been 24h, but I'll post a third clue now, and maybe someone will figure it out in the half-hour or so before I will likely call it a day: The previous use of the title was for a video game released for PCs.

    Yep! Diego Reyes to Rana Desai, when she cancels dinner plans over an ongoing inquiry involving Reyes. Accordingly, the missing word in clue 2 is Mack, playing off an Apple ad campaign.

    "Really? I've never met anyone who doesn't make mistakes"

    Well, given what a hoary old joke that is, it's gotta be a Peter David book...

    Made me think Tev for a moment ... not in style, but in sentiment.
