    who gives the books their tittles.

    Besides its kind of hard to claim the characters are that big in making something a Star Trek book, when a TOS changed the cast three times.

    Plus the characters and storylines argument also falls apart when you remember TNG didn't have the TOS cast, DS9 only had two TNG characters, VOY didn't have the TNG or DS9 cast, and ENT didn't have the VOY, TNG, or DS9 casts and yet their still considered Star Trek.

    ^You're all over the place there. All you're showing is that there's no universal rule where titles are concerned, that it's an enormous mistake to confuse the label of a thing with its contents. What Greg suggested about a Holmes "spinoff" is nothing like what I'm doing with Rise of the Federation. I should know, because I wrote the darn thing. Your analogy between them is completely wrong because you're fixating on the titles rather than the content.

    I admit I am waaaaaaaaaay (like, probably a decade) behind on my Trek Lit reading, but has anything ever been written about Spock's plan for Vulcan/Romulan Re-Unification? I always liked Spock's appearances in TNG, but when he got sucked back in time in ST09, I couldn't help thinking about his life's work that he left behind in the Prime Universe.

    Various Typhon Pact novels feature Spock on Romulus, including Rough Beasts of Empire.

    More than that, the arc has actually been carried forward, rather than waiting in limbo.

    Although it's neither cannon nor even hinted at, a twisted part of me always liked to think that the 'mirror universe' was our universe.

    I'd love to see a definitive "Ro Laren's history" story. I've been told there are one or two versions out there about what happened on Garon II that made her such a disgrace in Starfleet at the time of her introduction on TNG, but somewhere in the DS9 post finale novels there was a scene where Vaughn told her "I know what really happened" that seemed like a tease for an eventual definitive version of that part of her history.

    ^I'd really like to see some of Ro's history between the Maquis and Militia. We know a little of it from Abyss, but not much.

    Didn't see the ENT credits with the mirror Neil Armstrong planting the Terran Empire flag on the moon? ;)

    Yeah, but that was years after I had that idea. Like I said, I know the idea wasn't cannon.

    All I can say is this is the best book I've read in a long time. I lost my original copy on the bus and finally broke down and recently rebought it on the Kindle.

    Glad I did. Outstanding novel. :techman:

    I hate when things like that happen. But then I take solace in the idea that maybe someone stumbled across it and is now as in love with Star Trek novels as I am!

    Wow! Thanks so much for the kind words.

    I'd been wanting to do something with Shaun Christopher for year. I'm glad I finally got to do that book!

    I got the impression The Mirrorball Man was thinking in rather more... salacious... terms than that.

    But I suppose it could still be called Rise of the Federation...

    :devil:
