    Just wrote my review for What Judgments Come. Check it out! Oh man, March/April can't come soon enough! I am both eager to finish the story, and sad that there won't be more. David, please don't kill everyone!

    Just caught up on this and it was terrific, certainly my favourite Wardilmore entry in the series. The Nimbus III and Defiant bits were really odd though. I've never been a huge fan of TOS, I think I've seen most of the episodes and about half the movies, but that was a long time ago. I got in to this series as it was just terrifically written and a wonderful story.

    I'm aware from reading this board that there are certain references and clever tie-in things that I've missed, but that's always been reading this board after the fact. To me the Nimbus III stuff was okay but felt like it was leading to something in the next book, as part of Jetanian's arc, and I hope that's the case. The Defiant plot was just just a slap in the face though "here's half a story, go find the end somewhere else". It's the first time I've felt that the point of the sub-plot was just to be clever, rather serve the ongoing narrative.

    Then again, I've not read Storming Heaven yet so maybe both of those stories will feature plot points that pay off in the books as well in episodes of a very old TV show.

    I just finished this novel today and then read through this thread to see others' reactions.

    A lot of the thread reviews seemed pretty dismissive of the Nimbus III sections of the book. I actually enjoyed these sections more, I believe, because I'd seen the film Argo last year. The storming of the Federation embassy mirrors the storming of the American embassy in the first act of Argo and both really capture the frantic fear and mob violence involved.

    The Nimbus III scenes were very well written in WJC (just as the scenes in Argo were well portrayed) and I resurrected this thread because I was wondering if anyone else felt some déjà vu while reading the book or seeing the movie.

    I finished this one up last night. I thought it took a little while to get going, but once it did it was great. Really looking forward to seeing how things end in Storming Heaven. I'm going with Outstanding for this one.

    If you think this was good wait until you read Storming Heaven, its a fitting finale to Vanguard. Also make sure you check out Dayton Wards In Tempest's Wake. Its an e-novella that fleshes out the USS Enterprise's contributions to Vanguard and actually ends the series.

    Oh yeah, I definitely plan on reading In Tempest's Wake, and Seekers.
