    Greg Cox returns this February 25th with a standalone 5YM TOS novel (his not-so-guilty pleasure), No Time Like the Past. This one's interesting because it sort-of answers a recurring demand for stories set within the original runtime of the 24th century Trek shows: The fetching blonde Captain Kirk will run into this time around is no other than Seven from smack in the middle of her timeline on Voyager.

    This and more can be found in the blurb:

    I swear, it's like Captain Kirk attracts time warps...

    "Man was a menace."

    Just out of interest, Jedi Ben, have you read either of the Department of Temporal Investigations books? The second of the two concerns itself with Kirk's reputation and experiences regarding time travel, among other things.

    I haven't got around to them no, should they go on the hit list?

    They're a lot of fun, especially if you're intrigued by time-travel as seen in Star Trek . . ..

    Thanks.

    Hmm, quite recent too so easily available. Once I've worked my way through Vanguard I'll grab 'em.

    Well, it's mostly a TOS book guest-starring Seven, although there are some chapters involving the rest of the Voyager crew.

    I'll be picking it up; first TOS novel in a long time I'm getting. Usually I find crossovers like this kind of corny, but it seems to me like it should fit Cox's style well, and Beyer's got me on a real Voyager kick.

    The book will not be true to TOS if Kirk does not passionately kiss Seven!!! :lol:

    It'll be sadder if he doesn't even try.

    Even though I collect the TOS books, I don't generally read them as soon as they come out (unless we are talking about the Shatner books)----so it could be years before I read them. But with Seven and Voyager, it's getting bumped up to a higher slot (just like when "Spectre" came out, I read it because of Voyager).

    Works for me!

    I confess I've made a point of mentioning this book in the Voyager forum just to make sure it didn't fly beneath their radar.
