    Do not give up, Greg! At least for TOS and their movies

    You’re right, no doubt. But absent any other clues, it just seems the most likely possibility for now. Not a guarantee by any means.

    Unless Captain Worf and the Enterprise actually are going to be in the second season, I wouldn't hold my breath about that new book being about that.

    Yeah, they seem to be sticking to stuff we've seen onscreen, or that has at least been directly referred to onscreen, and I don't think Worf as Captain of the Enterprise was ever specifically talked about on the show.

    A pity that the DS9 book has been delayed but hopefully we will all be reading it this time next year.

    Don't forget Picard losing his brother and nephew in Generations.

    And Geordi lost his mother in an episode. The list is endless. TNG seems bleak when you really think about it.

    And then Data had to kill his brother, on top of that.

    Well, disassemble him. Lore was disassembled when Data first discovered him, and he was able to be reassembled and reactivated. So theoretically Lore could be brought back again. It's more like being in stasis than dead. (Except in the novel continuity, which established that Lore's parts were kept in Data's lab on the E-D and were destroyed when it crashed on Veridian III.)

    *shakes fist at Nemesis for not doing an easy continuity nod by having the Enterprise crew favourably compare B-4 to Lore the maniac

    Heck, given that very second TREK pilot was all about Kirk having to kill his best friend, I still can't see how how an unseen kid, whom we've never met, dying quietly offscreen many years before somehow makes the timeline all that "darker." :)

    I just got my copy. My local barnes had it out early. I'm 20 or so pages in and boy did you get a grin on my face when a certain someone showed up.

    My local Barnes & Noble had a copy the weekend after Christmas, but I deferred buying it because I'd rather spend $12.99 for the Kindle version than $25 for a hardback - but that's just me. That said, I did read the first chapter before I was helpfully informed by a store employee that due to the pandemic, we couldn't actually sit down on the floor and read...

    Got the new Titan one. It’s set in 2386 so I doubt Boilmer will be in it sadly.
