    Thanks for posting that picture of M'Ress, I heard she appeared and I was wondering what Byrne's version of her looked like.

    For people curious about the Eaglemoss "Star Trek" graphic novel partworks, Issue #1 arrived in Sydney, Australia, this month. The first hardcover is "Countdown", the prequel tie-in to the 2009 movie, story by Orci & Kurtzman. The first Gold Key story, "The Planet of No Return", appears at the back. Both stories have new explanatory prefaces. $AU 4.95 introductory price.

    An accompanying 12-page, glossy brochure promotes the future issues. A set of 50 hardcovers is depicted. If one takes out a subscription, four gifts get scheduled: a command insignia lapel pin; a set of movie poster prints in a collectors' tin; two classic Gold Key covers printed as tin plates; and a pair of steel insignia bookends. Subscriptions can also be upgraded to include four "New Visions" hardcover omnibuses, to arrive over the span of the subscription.

    Volume 2 is to be "City of the Edge of Forever", IDW's adaptation of Ellison's original draft script, with #2 of Gold Key as the backup story. $AU 12.99 will be the fortnightly price.

    Volume 3 is the TNG story, "Hive" by Brannon Braga, plus another Gold Key.

    I found a bunch of TOS e-books marked down on Google Play, so I got That Which Divides, The Empty Chair, A Choice of Catastrophes and Unspoken Truth.

    Would I get more out of Unspoken Truth if I read Pandora Principle first?

    Not really. They differ on some of the details of Saavik's backstory (UT has Sarek and Amanda play a much larger role in raising Saavik), and really, they're both elaborating on the backstory Vonda McIntyre created for Saavik in her Wrath of Khan novelization.

    Oh, I was under the impression Unspoken Truth was more or less a sequel to Pandora Principle.

    No, only to the Saavik-backstory elements they have in common. TPP is mainly a movie-era story (between TMP and TWOK) about a Romulan bioweapon attack on Earth, but it features a couple of extended flashbacks to Saavik's origin story. UT is about the year in Saavik's life following The Voyage Home, and also has flashbacks to Saavik's formative years, which are mostly but not entirely compatible with TPP's flashbacks.

    Are people liking the Trek day planner? I usually buy a pagan one. I just picked up "Hearts and Minds", the Klingon travel guide, "Section 31: Control", and something else of Dayton's at Shore Leave. Currently reading "Crisis of Consciousness"

    I'm currently rereading the Phoenix novels by Marshak and Culbreath because I just
    picked up an original Bantam copy of Triangle. In damn near mint condition!

    Folk, the beginning of Star Trek (indeed ALL) mainstream slash fiction.

    And I paid a single dollar.

    Garage sales rule!

    Is there more than one place in the world called Sydney as I was under the impression that there isn't.
