Re: Typhon Pact: Seize The Fire review thread I don't wanna speak for anyone, but the sense I'm getting isn't one of a dislike of diversity. It's a dislike of being constantly reminded of it. To answer your question, no I wouldn't feel preached to because of Black, Asian or Latino characters. But I would get annoyed if I were reading something that constantly said "life is so different on our ship because we have all these Blacks, Asians and Latinos". I'd be offended. And I think that distaste is what many are speaking of. We know the diversity exists, we don't need the constant recap and reminder. And I know each book has dealt with different characters and species as a way of discovering the crew, but it is frustrating to read a book and get to love a character and then you don't hear from them for a book or two. It's like loving Geordi and him not being in the next three episodes. I like Titan, but I too could do without the constant reminder of diversity, the challenge it poses and how awesome they are for undertaking it. Simply treat each character as a character, not as a lesson of tolerance I should be learning. It's awesome how diverse the crew is, but it cheapens it when you feel the need to constantly explain it to me.
