Hi all. Am in the middle of Doomsday World (TNG#12) and am really curious about the number of authors put on this novel. The cover lists the authors: Carmen Carter, Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, and Robert Greenberger. Any one have any insider's info? Were all four to be authors from the get-go? Or were authors added over time? Was it a marketing issue? After all the first three already had each at least one TNG novel under their belt and perhaps were presumed to be able to bring in readers. Was there some grand plan to make this a "novel of significance", e.g. use the story here as a springboard for other stories? Any ideas?
