Jump Force | Tried

Tried June 2020xbox gamepassOne more game that I tried before my gamepass expired last year. I figured I'd try as many games as possible to see what I liked, in case they were on sale in the future (which this game appears to be frequently on sale).I am not all that familiar with the broader Dragonball universe. I recognize the characters, and I remember watching some Dragonball back in the day, but

Review: Full Circle

Full Circle by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this relaunch of the relaunch series. I didn't expect the Voyager (or the Federation) to be going back into the Delta quadrant so soon, but I can't wait to see where this ends up.  The fleet of ships being prepared gives me mental shades of Battlestar Galactica.From the blurb:When the USS

Review: Enemy of My Enemy - Spirit Walk Book 2

Enemy of My Enemy by Christie Golden My rating: 4 of 5 stars This story had a good conclusion. Would have been fun to see Captain Chakotay on screen :-). Too bad the first officer was basically dead on arrival, but I guess this opens up the door for Tom Paris to become the first officer.From the book cover: Captain Chakotay and his sister, Sekaya, are being held captive

Gato Roboto | Done

One more from the distant world of 2020. This is a game that I played when I still had gamepass, and I think I may have rushed through to complete it while I still had GamePass in July 2020. The game is a metroidvania-style game where the protagonist is cat (kiki), in a mech-suit, traversing a world to save the scientist that she comes to the planet with.  A bit short on story (as with most games

Review: Old Wounds: Spirit Walk Book One

Old Wounds: Spirit Walk Book One by Christie Golden My rating: 4 of 5 stars Chakotay gets the Captain's seat, new crew members mix with Voyager's old crew, and we're off to see Capt. Chakotay's first adventure as Captain of the Voyager. This book is part 1 of 2, so it ends on a "to be continued" but the first part was rather interesting. Lots of callbacks to past Voyager and

Review: The Farther Shore

The Farther Shore by Christie Golden My rating: 5 of 5 stars The exciting conclusion to the novel titled "Homecoming" which immediately preceeds this one.  I am not surprised that there was a "badmiral" involved. I am surprised that despite the horrors of Wolf 359, and the Dominion War, that someone thought it was a good idea to become a Borg Queen and start

Star Trek Timelines | Reached Endgame

Dusting off this old post from April 2020! I had started to write this up back then, but then it got stuck in my drafts.  Anywho...here's another game that I've reached the end-game! huzzah! (sarcasm).So, what is Star Trek Timelines?  Star Trek Timelines is a mobile free-to-play game that takes place in the Star Trek Universe. I first started playing this on my old iPad 2 (back when that

Review: Homecoming

Homecoming by Christie Golden My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a good kickoff to a relaunch series for Voyager. The book picks up from the series finale of the series and we get to see what the crew is up to as they settle into life back in Federation space. Too bad there is something nefarious happening in the background that harshes their calm...From the book cover: After

Review: Situated Learning

Situated Learning by Jean Lave My rating: 4 of 5 stars A book I've been meaning to read ever since I was introduced to communities of practice in 2005.  It only took a dissertation as an excuse to pull it off the bookshelf.  Not a bad introduction if you're looking for a historical view of CoPs. I am sure there are other books on my bookshelf where the

Review: Control

Control by David Mack My rating: 5 of 5 stars I really loved this story. Bashir has a future as a spy ;-) I am a bit annoyed that they killed off Sarina. I am wondering if this is really the end of S31 and control...From the book cover:No law… no conscience… no mercy. Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, and answering to no one, Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division
