    I decided to make a dedicated thread to Dayton Ward's upcoming TNG novel Hearts and Minds, due out 30 May 2017. The novel looks to be the spiritual follow-up to TOS - From History's Shadow and TOS - Elusive Salvation which Ward has previously hinted at.

    Looking forward to more evolution of the Section 31 precursor.

    Nice to see Captain Picard on the cover again. I'm looking forward to getting this book. I'm really interested in the formation of what turns out to be Section 31.

    To be fair, neither of them is in this thread, the one actually about the book in question.

    Does anyone know the timespan it covers starting in the 21st century, for the historical parts?

    To be fair, this thread had died a death, had the sum total of two posts and hadn't been posted in since the day it was created by the OP back in October, so it's not like this thread is really the thread for the discussion of the book in question, in a few weeks it will be superseded by the review thread, plus there is the [SIZE=6]New 2017 titles and blurbs - DTI, McCormack DS9, and more! thread that has seen a lot more discussion.

    I completely forgot this thread existed, which is why I posted in the 2017 titles and blurbs thread.

    Which is fair enough, as I said earlier, it had two posts from the day it was created back in October.

    I personally don't understand the point in having an anticipation thread for a single book, I know some do get a lot of traction, but that's normally in a thread like the 2017 titles thread.

    I created this thread because I wanted to talk about this novel in particular. It may not have gotten much traction, but having not looked all the way through the 2017 titles thread, I figured posting the cover here would make it easier to find.

    If this novel follows past precedent, then the Enterprise-E crew will probably meet Roberta Lincoln, but as the past portions of the novel focus on 2031, I wonder if Rain Robinson will be the historical human contact.
