Your recap exaplined perfectly well why I haven't kept up with the relaunch.  That sounds absolutely horrible.

I haven't read much of the relaunch (stupid local library is seriously lacking in sci-fi books, espectially Star Trek ones), but what I have read is good, and I like the way the universe seems to be progressing.


It may well be at odds with the way you pictured things, but I suggest you at least give it a try.  Maybe pick up Destiny from your local bookstore or Amazon - even if you don't like what happens to the universe, it's a damn good read.

I agree completely, as it relates to Sisko and the Typhon Pact.

You are entitled to your opinion but many fans disagree.  There are talented authors who are fans themselves working hard to continue the journey.  And you can't judge shelves of books based upon a few sentence summary.

Spock's child by Saavik.


Was it a boy? If so perhaps name him after his grandfather - Sarek II.


Was it a girl? Then Spovik perhaps?


Why do people keep suggesting Worf?!!!!!!!!!!


He'd be bloody hopeless as a captain. Picard had to keep restraining him all the time. He is too quick off the mark, too volatile - too much shoot first, ask questions later. He hasn't a drop of diplomatic blood in him - despite a fair amount of Star Fleet conditioning. Once a Klingon always a Klingon.


Whoever wanted them in Star fleet anyway?!

I agree.  Worf made an excellent captain of a warship and is superb in battle but the captain of the flagship needs diplomacy experience I just don't think he has.  He has been an excellent 1st officer in the books but don't see him as captain. 


I also am stuck on the point that politically, you aren't going to give command of your flagship to someone whose species is not a member of the federation and who goes back and forth between friends and enemies, especially when he is in the family of their chancellor.

I wish I had kept a count of the amount of times Picard asked his bridge staff for opinions and Worf's was always "I vote we blast them to bits captain!" to which Picard would always come up with an immediated counter point like ...


"I only asked who wanted milk and sugar..."

Well, Worf was younger and less seasoned then.

Well I can agree with everyone that Worf is not the right choice. And okay, Vaughn may be too old but I still don't think the main protagonist of DS9 should command the ship from TNG. From what I can tell, authors do their best to keep the novels of each show distinct. Sisko as the Enterprise's captain would only blur those lines to the melting point.


Plus, he's got his own ship and story progresing in the lastest novel. To take him to a new ship so soon would be like wasting all the character development and crew interactions he had in Rough Beasts of the Empire.
