I finished Book II: Mere Mortals about this time last night.  Now I'm reading ST:New Frontier Treason.  Almost done with it.

Want to get Book III of the trilogy soon!  Although it might have to wait until next paycheck  :)

Love reading books by two of my fave ST authors!!!!!  David Mack and Peter David ROCK

There are definitely WAY good authors in Trek who set the standard for good stuff, sci fi or not, and I'm afraid there's everyone else. But I've only read a handful that have seriously disappointed, then just avoid them after that.

I like Dillard, Mack, Carey, Martin/Mangels, Stern and others that deserve to be considered the caviar of the lot but I can't remember right now.

I'm hoping that's a compliment, because I *love* LOST.  I just started watching it a few weeks ago through Netflix on-demand and I'm four episodes into season five already...

I'd say that would be a mixed statement because when Lost is good it is really really good.   When lost is bad.....ouch.

I like Hernandez's story a lot so far.   (I am half-way in to book two.)

It actually was a compliment. I never stopped watching LOST when it got really hairy a couple years ago, even for LOST (a lot of people dropped out).

Wow, the whole series at once? That's gotta be an experience. Different from the cliff-hanger, "Things that make you go 'Wha-a?'" :laugh:

( I was thinking maybe the LOST folks got the idea from you...! )

Finished it last night.  And a lot of the other books following these make more sense now ;)  Or at least the blanks are filled in

Am almost done Book 1 & loving it. A lil' cheezy here n there but for 'licensed fiction' this is good stuff -- and it's #### good Trek.

My 1 complaint abt the fiction from the past decade: too many wars. How about some good ole exploration, first contact, or even the classic Trek morality plays...?

But I suppose Trek reflects the times, and these have been war-ridden times.

Yeh, it occurs to me that TNG/DS9 era of human history isn't a lot of fun to live in...First near-Borg attack, the Dominion War, now the Borg Wars...

You realize how frightened many humans must have been after the Xindi attack in ENT. Some to the point of the Terra Prime movement. As if they have been thrown irreversibly into grave inter-planetary danger--no way to go back, no way out. Then the Romulan War to REALLY make Starfleet re-think EVERYthing.

just copied Mr. Mack's post from the other Destiny Trilogy thread on background books for the Trilogy:

Quote
I wrote the trilogy so that you could just jump in, but it might be a more rewarding reading experience if you first read these few books:

Star Trek Titan: Orion's Hounds by Christopher L. Bennett
Star Trek Titan: Sword of Damocles by Geoffrey Thorne

Star Trek: The Next Generation -- Resistance by J.M. Dillard
Star Trek: The Next Generation -- Before Dishonor by Peter David
Star Trek: The Next Generation -- Greater Than the Sum by Christopher L. Bennett

Destiny Trilogy

:)

You were right, Sonny, way back when--the thread shoulda been pinned. But there are spoilers.

Wow, glad I wasn't alone in LOVING the Hernandez/Caeliar storyline--Trek, and sorta beyond Trek.

I'm just very curious about the impetus for making Hernandez the protag--Mr. Mack, you implied you had already chosen her before Mangels/Martin brought her into their storylines.

Was it merely an attempt to involve someone from all 4 series in the trilogy, so Hernandez was sort of a foregone conclusion? (The right person from the right time...) Or was there anything at all you saw in such a minor character that tilted the balance in choosing someone from that era?

Anyway, as it turned out, inspired. Choosing someone from that era added the best dimension to the trilogy, and her character came alive. I did feel she was already Captain-material onscreen but she finally got developed in the books.

Really makes one wanna see more of her...
