I loved the Avatar books (I actually read them together in Twist of Faith). It felt like the perfect continuation to the the TV show, which I felt had ended unresolved. It's also the book that motivated me to start reading all the other Star Trek books. Which is a decision I was very happy I made. So I suppose it'll always have that special honour. I can definitely agree with that. I think he's the only one that's a fully formed character in my head when I read about him. Although there are a few others that are getting there.
