Review: Star Trek: Discovery: The Light of Kahless

Star Trek: Discovery: The Light of Kahless by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Not a bad comic, and one that brings forth a bit of prequel mythos into Star Trek Discovery. In this one we see the origins of the Sacrophagus ship, and T'Kuvma and Voq themselves, and other Klingons who are acting...dishonorably...to say the least. I am wondering if there will be any references to this

Review: Narrative Inquiry: A Dynamic Approach

Narrative Inquiry: A Dynamic Approach by Colette DaiuteMy rating: 3 of 5 stars 3.5 stars. Not a bad book, and not bad in structuring a methodology for researching a narrative inquiry. The approach given, however, makes me a little perplexed as to what separates this type of narrative inquiry from something like Discourse Analysis. View all my reviews

Review: Artemis

Artemis by Andy WeirMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Since I liked the Martian, I decided to follow it up with Artemis.  I wasn't sure if this was going to be a sequel, or something totally different.  Basically: Moon smuggler, on a moon base, fitting the "young professional" category of employee tries something new. Royally messes up but survives. Walks away an entrepreneur.Fun novel.

Review: The Martian

The Martian by Andy WeirMy rating: 5 of 5 stars After a lot of hype I decided to read this book. It was quite a fun book to read. MacGyver, on Mars, becomes a potato farmer to survive until he can get rescued. Snarky MacGyver on Mars - which makes it more fun. Now that I've read this I do want to see the movie version, just as a comparison.View all my reviews

Review: Rosetta

Rosetta by Dave SternMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Back to Star Trek novel reading.  This was the last novel before the 'relaunch' of the enterprise series. Not a bad story - plus brownie points for some contemporary linguistics peppered in. That said, it felt a bit slow to begin (so much so that I lost the plot a bit while listening to it via TTS).View all my reviews

Star Trek Online 9 years

It's been a while since the actual anniversary date of STO, but it's been busy, so this draft has been sitting in my...drafts...for a while.  This year Cryptic broke up the pieces of the infographic and released them a piece at a time on twitter, before putting the entire thing up on their website at the end.  I am not surprised that Tactical captains are first in the list, and I am also

Review: Titan: Fortune of War

Titan: Fortune of War by David MackMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Pretty interesting adventure. I had completely forgotten about the Husnock and needed to look them up on Memory Alpha. In many respects it reminded me a lot of the hunt for Alteran, or even Goauld tech in Stargate once the Goauld had fallen. He who controls the powerful ancient tech controls the galaxy.  I wonder what the next

Review: Engaging in Narrative Inquiry

Engaging in Narrative Inquiry by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Informative. Worthwhile reading if you're interested in Narrative Inquiry as a research method. I read this book after the book I posted about yesterday.  This book seemed to go a little more in-depth as to the how-to of a narrative inquiry but it's still not a recipe.  Time to read another book.  One

Review: Narrative Inquiry: Experience and Story in Qualitative Research

Narrative Inquiry: Experience and Story in Qualitative Research by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This isn't a book where you are told how to do Narrative Inquiry in a step-by-step manner. That said, it's probably the best book to introduce you to Narrative Inquiry because it's about what Narrative Inquirers do, and the forms that takes. It really helped frame the research approach
