v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

OK, maybe a few more accolades...

Well,  summer 'vacation' on Risa is upon us in Star Trek Online, and has been for a while.  This gave me a bit of an opportunity to claim a few more accolades that are Summer Event accolades (as well as go back for a few more Breen ones that seemed 'easy' to get)Unauthorized beach party - Basically come back to one of the beach-front spots after dark to join a fire-side party.  Ever

Review: Star Trek: Khan

Star Trek: Khan by Mike JohnsonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This takes place after the movie Into Darkness.  I think that the reader gets a sense of the backstory to Khan - starting in the pre-TOS timeline (where things are the same between the prime and kelvin timelines) and moving across into the kelvin timeline events that got us to Into Darkness. Through this story we see where Khan

Review: Star Trek, Volume 13

Star Trek, Volume 13 by Mike JohnsonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a review more of the entire "Star Trek: Ongoing" by IDW than just this volume.  In this particular volume the TOS crew meets Kelvin-timeline crew. It's an interesting way to see the aesthetics of the two timelines juxtaposed and people and their respective lives compared and contrasted. Throughout the series it

Review: Star Trek: Discovery: The Way to the Stars

Star Trek: Discovery: The Way to the Stars by Una McCormackMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Probably my favorite Discovery-era novel thus far.Some might say "oh, it's Just a Tilly story..." but I saw it as both a story about families, and a story about education. Tilly's mother basically wants to create a mini-me clone for herself, having Tilly follow her footsteps into the diplomatic core, without

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror by Scott TiptonMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Mirror Picard and crew are looking for resources given that the Terran Empire is a little short on them. How does one get them? Incursions into parallel universes (including the 'prime' universe) to collect resources, especially variants of the Enterprise D. This was an interesting story - with

Review: Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures

Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures by Dayton WardMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Rather interesting read - Enjoyed this one much more than the other DSC novels thus far. This was an interesting story about invasive species, refugees, and crimes against humanity that took place 10 years before the pilot episode for DSC. Here we see Georgiou and Lorca as commanders (we even get to see a little

Review: Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken - Origin of Data

Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken - Origin of Data by David TiptonMy rating: 3 of 5 stars I got this one as part of a Lootcrate. This comic traces the origin of data in the mirror universe. I do find the borgification of data interesting. I'd love to know more about the borg in the mirror universe in subsequent comics.

Review: Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018

Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018 by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this short trek into how Stamets discovered the spore transportation technology and how he got into starfleet. A little bonus at the end you get to see how Tilly comes on-board the Discovery. I got the impression from the TV show that cadets see now part of crews as some sort of work-study but apparently

Review: Fear Itself

Fear Itself by James SwallowMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This book felt very much like a TNG episode in DSC skin.It was a fine book to explore a bit of Saru's background (but I think some things in the book were in conflict with what we've learned of Saru on the show. There are Trek episodes that I put on in the background (they are fine, I just do other things while the show is on), and episodes
