    I have lots of Trek books that I'm looking forward to for one reason or another but I have to say that this one and the final Vanguard books are at the top of my list.

    I can't wait! It looks like fall 2011 into 2012 is going to be a very good time to be a TrekLit fan!

    Definitely sounds intriguing. I haven't been keen on the whole Memory Omega business and the general Mirror Universe stuff has gotten somewhat tiresome for me, but I'll definitely be checking the book out for Calhoun and company at least. And who knows, maybe I'll find myself loving the rest of the book, too? ;)

    I'm really expecting this to be epic and a really good read.

    I'm a huge, huge fan of the Memory Omega MU arc, so I'm really really looking to seeing how all of this comes together. So will this be the first time someone other than Peter David has written a novel with Calhoun in more than a cameo?

    Well there were the short stories in the New Frontier anthology. Don't remember how many of those had Calhoun.

    Nearly finished with story one the empress sato story in glass empires, quite enjoying it. Likely just skip the sorrows of empire story in the book, and just read the full novel

    You should still read Sorrows Of Empire at the same place chronologically, just read the novel version instead of the Glass Empires version.

    Sounds good, will be interesting to see the various threads of the TPBs converge. I still have 'sorrows of the empire' to read, but hopefully I should have clocked that by the time this is released.

    It's The Sorrows of Empire, not Sorrows of the Empire. The phrase doesn't refer to a specific empire, but to "empire" as a generic concept; it's an expression referring to the hardships, burdens, and costs faced by empires and imperialists in general. Sort of like "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown," I suppose.

    I'm not sure where the phrase originated, though. It sounds like Kipling, but I can't find any Google hits to confirm it.
