    Blur:

    The crews of Jean-Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko, Ezri Dax, and William Riker unite to prevent a cosmic-level apocalypse—only to find that some fates really are inevitable.

    THEIR MOST DAUNTING MISSION WILL BE THEIR FINEST HOUR.

    The epic Star Trek: Coda trilogy comes to a shattering conclusion as the Temporal Apocalypse forces Starfleet’s greatest heroes to make the greatest sacrifices of their lives.

    Got my copy today at Barnes and Noble after seeing Ghostbusters. Shocked to see it there. Only one lone copy tucked in the Trek section. 100% my lucky day.

    Cloud, where is the B & N store where you found the book? I was thinking to order online but now thinking I could check my two stores in Minneapolis.

    I'll have to wait awhile to get my book from Amazon. The fist two books took several weeks to come.The supply chain shortages are making it harder to get books right now.

    I'm calling it now: There will be a New Frontier cameo or mention. David always namedrops the NF gang, and there's no way the universe comes to an end without a little hint as to them fighting it every step of the way.

    Very small spoiler alert - David Mack has taught me a new word: abattoir

    It means....slaughterhouse. And it only took him 2 paragraphs into the book to do it. Lots of positive vibes to start. :beer:
