Review: The Last Best Hope

The Last Best Hope by Una McCormackMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a prequel novel that takes place before the first season of Star Trek: Picard.  The story shows us the other side of the preparations to save Romulans (and Remans?) from their fates which are doomed due to the Romulan Star going supernova.  I was hoping for some more congruence between the ST09 Countdown comics

Double Dragon Neon | Tried

When Double Dragon Neon came out on gamepass, I thought I'd give it a try. When I was a kid, I rather enjoyed playing double dragon on my monochrome Gameboy, and it always seemed like a fun game - even though I never think I beat the original.  Since it was practically free to try on my Xbox, I thought: why not?On the surface the game seems like a nice reboot of the original.  Updated graphics,

Some more STO accolades

I've been saving this post and keeping track of accolades I earned since the last time I posted about my accolade hunt in Star Trek Online.  Since a few of them are now collected - here is what I've earned. These are in the order I got them (2019-2020).Time BanditThis was one of the few Red Alert accolades I was missing.  To earn this one you need to save the entire cargo fleet from being

Review: Star Trek Blood & Honor

Star Trek Blood & Honor by Mark LernardMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good story that takes place early on in DS9's run (Sisko is still a commander). It's interesting to see a Romulan-Bajoran cooperative that seems to start to take place. I wish we had seen more Romulans in the actual show. Anyway - an artefact is found in the gamma quadrant, quite a few want it, and it's assumed that it

Review: Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Assassin's Creed: Revelations by Oliver BowdenMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a good ending to the Ezio storyline (and it wrapped up the Altair line as well). It follows the events of the game with the same name, but I think the author adds some more details to fill out the story. I like that they've also added the events of the short film "embers" in this book, but again - lack of modern-day

Review: Double Time

Double Time by Peter DavidMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad story. It involves the timey-whimeyness of time-travel, and a crew that I am not all that familiar with, but connector characters like the timeship Relativity and Captain Braxton make an appearance which make it feel more connected to other parts of Trek. I was way more excited that I probably should be when I turned the page and

Review: The Looking Glass War

The Looking Glass War by Mike W. BarrMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was an interesting mirror universe (but not THAT mirror universe) story. Mirror Odo is murdered and this kicks off an armed conflict between the dominion and the federation. Someone comes from the mirror universe to enlist Odo-prime's help to stop the war, and to unmask the murdered. Who dunnit?View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Celebrity Series, The Rules Of Diplomacy #1

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Celebrity Series, The Rules Of Diplomacy #1 by Aron EisenbergMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This is more of a review for the collected story (not just #1).  I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this much, but it was a rather fun tale of Nog playing host to a Klingon ambassador's kid (an ambassador in training?) and showing him around Ferengi culture on DS9. Not

Review: Lightstorm / Terok Nor

Lightstorm / Terok Nor by Mark A. AltmanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars One of the stories was about the building of Terok Nor, a joint effort between a Bajoran prisoner and a Cardassian architect, brought together by their interest in building things. A tentative "friendship" (perhaps understanding is the word?) flourishes, and in the end they both die. The Cardassian having been erased from all

COVID travels

Every month Google sends me a note indicating what data it has collected about my comings and goings. I guess Google also likes to remind me that I don't go very far these days due to the COVID emergency 😜. Considering that I usually walk this distance (and that I didn't have a car in May), this ain't bad at all.
