    A couple minutes ago, I decided to see if S&S had anything on A Singular Destiny, and I found this :

    This sounds awsome, I can't wait!:bolian:

    Can't wait either. This should be a good series as well.

    A Singular Destiny is, well, a singular book, not a series or part of a series.

    Y'know, this copy was posted on ComicMix ages ago, and I kept waiting for someone to notice. :lol:

    And yes, that is the really-o truly-o back cover copy.

    Awesome! I have been waiting for a follow up to Articles forever. And following up on the amazing stuff in Destiny I think it will definitely be work the wait.

    ^ It isn't really a "follow up" to Articles as such, though many characters from that novel do appear in the book. But there's a whole heckuva lot more to the novel than that. :)

    Oh, we'll be seeing quite a bit of the Kinshaya. Assume nothing. :)

    That looks phenomenal! Could this herald the possibility of exploring Sonek's past or future adventures?

    You mean "Sonek Pran: Intergalactic Man of Mystery". Then the sequels, "The Sonek Who Frinxed Me" and "Latinumember"

    Would you be willing to tell us what species he is, KRAD? His names doesn't sound human, but it doesn't really bring one specific species to mind.

    I think in one of the other threads someone mentioned it sounding like a Vulcan/Bajoran hybrid and KRAD responded something like "he he he" or an equally suggestive non-answer.

    To me, the Sonek definitely sounds Vulcan, not sure about Pran

    I was thinking Vulcan too, but they usually just have one name.

    I don't know, Sonek Pran sounds Vulcan/Andorian to me. Which would be very interesting in terms of their cultural (and highly antagonistic) history.

    It's not really a big secret, I just like being mysterious to mess with people.

    Oh, you wanted an answer? :lol:

    Sonek is what used be called a quadroon: he's a quarter human, a quarter Vulcan, a quarter Betazoid, and a quarter Bajoran.

    Here's a description of him from Captain Dax's point of view when he first beams onto the Aventine:
