I started reading the Titan series and since this dealt with the same characters I read the Destiny series and loved it. Even read the follow up to it which I was a fair read, but not as good as the series itself.

I didn't read trek bogs for the longest time and the trilogy got me back in. I look forward to typhon pact and hope the books and future movies and shows maintain continuity.

I read the first chapters of book one and it was lame. I didnt even recognize the characters, all made up by fan boys who want to milk the berman verse cow more and more. Pocket Books is just plain greedy to put out this abomination of a story, its not trek at all. I will stick to the TOS novels.

I would never flame you for your opinion. I respect that. Like you sometimes...yeah I am reading and thinking...."who is this?! What the?!" Yadda yadda yadda. The first book sets up what happened to the Columbia from Enterprise, Capt Hernandez and her senior staff. It's dull but you have to get through the dull stuff to REALLY enjoy the good stuff. Please try again bud.---ken

I love the Destiny trilogy! I have read the first two books and am about halfway through the third. I couldn't really identify with the crew of the Columbia so much, but Mack develops the crews of the Enterprise-E, Aventine and Titan very well, as they pursue their various destinies. A movie about these crews--especially from this series!--would be awesome! But, they would be hard to reconcile with the latest movie (i.e., Vulcan). Overall, I think David Mack excels in descriptive writing, which sometimes approaches pure poetry.

I loved reading these books as well. In fact I am considering reading them again.

Destiny tops my list of best books of all time (in trek) I'm currently debating rereading them or the original Shatner trilogy, another favorite.

I am curious if people realize the Judy and Garfield Reeves Stevens co -wrote William Shatner's books and are responsible for the best parts of his stories.

I know Shatner is just there for the name.
