Got some more accolades (STO)

It's been a while since I played Star Trek Online with the intent to be on the accolade hunt.  I actually I thought I had most of them, but then I came across a list created by one of the game's other players and saw that I was missing a considerable amount.  After clearing out the retired accolades (ones that you can't get any longer), and the ones that you can in theory get, but you need

Review: Handbook of Narrative Inquiry: Mapping a Methodology

Handbook of Narrative Inquiry: Mapping a Methodology by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars While I didn't read this book cover-to-cover I did find quite a few chapters quite useful in thinking about and designing my narrative inquiry project. View all my reviews

Review: The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing

The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing by Michael A. MartinMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This book continues on from the previous couple of novels and explores the first year of the Romulan war. Archer becomes a Commodore (interesting how they say it's an archaic title, but still used, perhaps foreshadowing the change of the rank name around TNG). Trip's alive (yay); there are heavy losses

Review: Kobayashi Maru

Kobayashi Maru by Michael A. MartinMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I actually liked this book more than I thought I would. The description from Memory Alpha is "Captain Jonathan Archer's Enterprise and Captain Erika Hernandez' Columbia become embroiled in the shocking events that became the infamous Starfleet Academy no-win scenario." I always took the Kobayashi Maru to be a theoretical simulation

Review: Star Trek: The Manga Ultimate Edition

Star Trek: The Manga Ultimate Edition by David GerroldMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This is really a collection of the "ultimate" (I guess) stories from the other three separate volumes of the TOS manga. I did like the colorized version of the borg story, but I don't know what rubric they used to select stories for this volume. Maybe they should have just picked all stories from the previous

Review: The Good That Men Do

The Good That Men Do by Andy MangelsMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Quite an enjoyable read. I would have loved to have seen this on-screen. Section 31, Romulan mystery, spycraft, and Trip is alive and spying on the Romulan Empire as a section 31 operative. The pacing of this novel was pretty good. I didn't feel lost, or bored, or wondering "what the heck is going on now?" Need an adaptation for

Review: Star Trek: The Manga, Volume 3: Uchu

Star Trek: The Manga, Volume 3: Uchu by Nathaniel BowdenMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad collection of TOS stories. This book had a similar feel to the other two volumes in the series.  Too bad the manga didn't have as much of a following and Tokoypop decided to cease producing it.View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: The Manga Volume 1: Shinsei/Shinsei

Star Trek: The Manga Volume 1: Shinsei/Shinsei by Chris DowsMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was actually a fun read, and many of the stories "felt" TOS-like in their telling and execution. The final story was a little too Mecha/Gundam and it kinda felt like it didn't connect with TOS, but it was a fun nevertheless. Who says there can't be mecha in the Star Trek Universe? After all, there was

Review: Star Trek: the manga Volume 2: Kakan ni Shinkou

Star Trek: the manga Volume 2: Kakan ni Shinkou by Wil WheatonMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad set of stories. Compared to the TNG Manga the stories here really felt more like original TOS, with a manga aesthetic. View all my reviews
