    It varies, Amazon has the POD version for $25.52, the MMPB ranges from $6.69 - $82.33 on the Amazon Marketplace, and the e-book is $15.99.

    I hope this doesn't sound rude, but I was just wondering Therin, do you read the books? You post all the time about buying the books, but I don't see remember seeing you actually discussing them in the review threads very often.

    Of course I read the books, and the comics.

    I am waaaaay behind on my Trek novel reading, but am current with the IDW comics. I often find I can offer little in the review threads that others haven't already covered by the time I read the books, so I rarely go there these days. I also had a job change at one point that eliminated my two-hour daily commute (and two-hours home), and lost my highly-coveted novel-reading time.

    Reading Facebook on the phone, on my shorter train trips, has seemingly replaced novel-reading. I also have a paid gig writing professional reviews of non-Trek children's literature and writing teaching notes, so those items' deadlines always have to take priority.

    BTW, I just today I secured this, from someone selling off their Loot Crate IDW exclusive:

    Origin of Data

    I managed not to hear of this until now. I think I'd seen the cover art and assumed it was part of the main mini-series. Although I do expect it will appear in the reprint omnibus trade paperback of "Mirror Broken" in a few months (along with the exclusive prologue of the same story from Free Comic Book Day), knowing there was another exclusive out there just had me running off to eBay this morning. And damn that "Priority"-only international mail option. Grrrrr.

    I have found Star Trek Seekers - Zweite Natur in front of my door when I came home from work late in the evening.

    I've been trying for a while now to get the NEglish version of the new ST:DIS book, but I seem to have to make due with the German translation, which, thank God, is also in the proper format.

    Have indicated anywhere what the official abreviation for the show is? I've writing DSC, but I've also seen DIS.

    The Writers' Room staff at CBS have said it's DSC. And it was even marked on a shuttlecraft in Episode #3.

    A big week already, and I haven't been into the comic shop or Galaxy yet!

    New Trek stuff
    by Ian McLean, on Flickr

    "Outside In Boldly Goes" and "Outside In Makes It So" are collections of Star Trek articles. IDW's "Loot Crate" exclusive comic, "Mirror Broken: Origin of Data", was an eBay win. "Renegades: The Requiem" fan film has arrived for sponsors on DVD; and ThinkGeek's unlicensed "Captain's Log" spiral notebook was at Zing! this afternoon.

    UPDATE: From the comic shop!

    BTW, Mego's Neptunian, an original-to-Mego TOS action figure from the 1970s, features as the penal administrator of Neptune Station in the TNG "Mirror Broken" comic!

    I just got some Barnes & Nobel credit from the e-book lawsuit, and after The Flash: The Haunting of Barry Allen, the first tie-in novel for the TV series, I had a little over $1 left, so I got STTOS: Miasma.

    Wow on getting the art book already! Does it really have stuff not available elsewhere, or is it all stuff previously posted online?
