    Probably not for that episode, but we're hoping to have her back for To Lose the Earth in the fall (if that book is released on schedule). We've been fortunate enough to have her on for her new releases, hopefully that can happen again!

    Mosaic by Jeri Taylor, quite a similar format to other books of the like. A fairly standard plot full of flashbacks and a lot of character development, I can't complain so far.

    Just started Best Destiny in the read/watch thru select trek chronological. I had started with the ENT novels, now I'm into the "April" Era. I read Final Frontier last week, and just finished Drastic Measures.

    I read Titan: Fortune of War by David Mack for the first time. I voted it "above average" in the poll. It's a solid action thriller with a mixture of alien races, some of whom Mack has not featured as often. I passed on this in the first place because my preference for Titan is to encounter new races and phenomena. You get a tiny bit of new information on the extinct Husnock, but that is not the primary focus. If it had been branded Typhon Pact, my expectations would have been more in line with what the book actually was.

    Is the storyline with Sarai and Batanides continued after this book anywhere? Batanides seems unusually militaristic and vicious compared to what I remember of her character from "Tapestry" and Rogue. I am hoping there is some reason why she needs dirt or leverage over Riker and Vale.

    Star trek TNG Dyson sphere by Charles Pellengreno&George Zebrowski. I really this novel was about a space mission to the dyson sphere. I really like the Horta captain from the science ship Darwin working with the Enterprise crew to help them save alien cultures who live inside the sphere. That everyone came together to help each other and there was no villians in the book.I also reread Star trek Strange new worlds book 2.

    Now between Books VIII and IX of Paradise Lost. Which puts me more than halfway through the combined length of Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, but only 38% of the way through Liturgical Easter (which is to say, I have plenty of time; my Easter reading is never as pressed for time as my Lenten reading)

    Reading the latest issue of ZOONOOZ (the membership magazine of the Zoological Society of San Diego) and the March issue of NMRA Magazine (formerly Scale Rails, formerly NMRA Bulletin).

    About to read Trill: Unjoined.

    In honor of May the 4th I'm going to be setting aside 2K Leagues Under the Seas in favor of the digital version of Star Wars Adventures Vol. 1, the first SWA collection.
