    Just shy of six years since Troublesome Minds, author David Galanter returns with his second solo novel Crisis of Consciousness (after more than 20 years of writing for the franchise). Street date: April 28th.

    Blurb time:

    Yeah, I'll be checking a couple of the local bookstores this week on the off-chance it happens to go out ahead of street date (which tends to happen pretty frequently).

    Not to be nitpicky, but there is a s missing at the end of the novel's title in the thread title.

    I saw this thread and thought "Wait, I don't even have MY copies yet. Can it be out?" :-) Y'all scared me.

    For those wondering, the blurb is the setup but doesn't speak to the meat of the novel, which is again a Spock-centric story. In fact, it rather dovetails somewhat (not directly) with "Troublesome Minds."

    (And yes, Defcon is right... it's "Consciousness" not "Consciousnes" ;-) )

    That's a shame, I was intrigued by the prospect of sentient 8-bit consoles

    I am curious why you do not have any copies, yet?

    Looks like Amazon has the first chapter available for reading:

    http://www.amazon.com/Crisis-Consciousness-Star-Trek-Original/dp/1476782601

    I hope it encourages you to buy the book and let me know what you think. If I had to sum up what I think might interest people about this book, it's somewhat Spock thinking "what would Kirk do?" and Kirk thinking "what would Spock do?" in their respective situations. ;-)

    Knowing Amazon's history with Trek novel releases, it'll be waiting for me on my doorstep this Tuesday after work.

    The wait will soon be over.

    I got mine yesterday, and I like it so far.
    I don't want to give away any details, so suffice it to say that I am just after where the Maabas counsel of 17 has decided to put their faith onto Captain Kirk in dealing with the situation.
