    Nogura was indeed modeled after Mako, whereas Jon Cooper bears...uh...more than a passing resemblance to actor James Naughton, circa 1974. :)

    Dayton did you write OP solo, or did you write it with Dilmore? I only ask because I've seen two different versions of the cover, one with just your name and one with yours and Kevins'.

    EDIT: Never mind, I just checked S&S and your site and they both have just you.

    I executed the manuscript, based on a story we developed together.

    Ah, ok. Was there a reason you wrote it alone?

    Due to other matters and priorities which had to take precedence, Kevin wasn't available to help with the actual writing in the time available/allotted.

    Please keep writing Vanguard (best Trek series ever)! I hope there are plans for more stories.

    ^ The fifth Star Trek Vanguard novel, Precipice, will be out in December. I am hoping to finish writing the manuscript within the next few weeks.

    Just re-read Reap the Whirlwind today and thought of trying my luck at suggesting another title. Nuts!

    I'm ashamed to admit I actually get the reference. I even have that show on DVD. :)

    And a reminder that US issue 18 and UK issue 145 will be released pretty much simultaneously on the movie's release- as there's no TrekLit content in the Movie Souvenir Special I won't be pushing it here (although I guess there's a link in that Bob Greenberger wrote the cast bios, and Marco Palmieri's help has been invaluable in pulling it together).
