    I'm going to write a 2-novel LaForge story---Forget that, it'll be a single LaForge novel with just the bones of two novels jammed together to create a terrible story. (Indistinguishable From Magic)

    Katherine Stano shows she has better chemistry with Clark Terrell than with Atish Khatami.

    Whichever novel has the scene in which she's greeted by Terrell at the Sagittarius crash site and says, "Happy to be here, sir. Well, not really." I believe it's #2.

    George Sanders decides that sacrificing himself and his crew to stop the Borg is more important than giving Trek authors an opportunity to include him in future Trek novels.

    An infant Kurn is grounded for throwing his food and thus changes the course of Klingon history.

    George Sanders?!? The late actor who was the first "Mr. Freeze" on the Adam West Batman TV series?? What does he have to do with Star Trek??

    Oh. Capt. Sanders (from DS9:"For the Uniform"). I see: A Singular Destiny named him George (after the actor?), and killed him off. On the other hand, the ST RPG named him Harlan (What? Did they, ahem, "chicken out" of calling him "Harland"?)

    I always surmised that Harlan was his first name and that he went by his middle name, George. Thus, his full name was H. George Sanders.

    The first is A Singular Destiny, which deals with the immediate aftermath of the Borg Invasion. There's a chapter containing Captain Sanders' final log entry, in which he details his plan to engage multiple Borg vessels and recommends that his entire receive posthumous commendations for their bravery during the crisis.

    The second is The Art of the Impossible, which covers several decades of Alpha Quadrant history (and may be the best Trek novel I've read thus far). My earlier post was reference to a 1-year-old Kurn angrily throwing his bowl of food across the family dining room in front of guests. Ultimately, he was left at home while his parents and brother traveled to Khitomer. We know the rest.

    And to think you could have gone along with the game and just given the titles in your original post.

    Royal Jelly, The Enterprise Cloaks and Locutus shows up - Resistance.

    A murder mystery, some flash backs and a not so epic Borg vs Changeling fight - Lesser Evil

    I believe Spock was hiding the green salami, not hunting it, unless I'm remembering a very different book! :)

    It's not so bad actually, my problem with it is that for a first adventure of the TOS crew it's not a strong one. The characters are interesting. The comic isn't so strong either but both have their own merits.

    There will be no logic to this book. The DS9 crew will need to use everything, including the kitchen sink!

    This. If they wanted to do a "NuKirk is reckless and needs to get taken down a peg" movie it could've been "he screws up with a primitive culture big time" rather than "Khan did 9/11". But that's a discussion for another time.

    I'm surprised no one's asked which book I was talking about.
