    I wouldn't think so. The timing wouldn't be right if Shaun Christopher is born sometime between 1968 and 2010. :p

    Yeah, I'm not aware of any release date yet. At the moment, it's just a twelve-page outline. I'm hoping to start writing it tomorrow morning.

    Why set it during TOS when you can set it during TAS? I want more TAS-era novels!

    Arex meets Shaun Christopher. Then M'Ress shows up. It writes itself!

    Well, according to David Gerrold, Arex and M'Ress were already aboard before "The Trouble with Tribbles". When he wrote "The Galactic Whirlpool", he gave them a cameo (and a feature role to Kevin Riley) and, at the end of the story, Kirk decides the whole crew needs a well-earned rest and the ship makes its way to a quiet shore leave... on Space Station K-7.

    Now, although many timeliners put that novel into a TAS-era slot, I once asked David what was his intention for that ending, and he said it meant that Arex and M'ress were always on the ship.

    Dare I confess that I'm not very familiar with TAS? I have dim memories of watching the tribble episode when it first aired, and I tracked down a VHS copy of "The Counter-Clock Incident" when I had a write a Robert April story ages ago, but that's about it . . . .

    Nothing too wet-blanket-ish there. I want to get back to Gary and Roberta one of these days, too. But they just didn't work in this book.

    (I actually had Roberta stowing away aboard the Saturn Probe at one point, but that seemed to be pushing it . . . .)
