Star Trek Book Challenge 18: Guises of the Mind (Star Trek: The Next Generation #27)

216871So on the challenge we have Guises of the Mind (Star Trek: The Next Generation #27) by Rebecca Neason… Not a bad book, it’s more of a filler really. Rather decent Deanna Troi story. It uses both her job and telepathic abilities to the fullest. The story is a bit of a ‘Man in the iron mask’ style. But that’s okay because I love that book as well, so meh.

Sadly there really isn’t much I can write…

Sadly there really isn’t much I can write or tell you about this novel. It’s just there hahaha, I mean here is the story plot of you:

The world Capulon IV is finally ready to join the Federation aften years of waiting. All that remains is the ruler’s coronation and a routine signing of the final treaty. When the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ and their passengers—a group of women from a religious order dedicated to helping the downtrodden—arrive for the event they expect to find a world willing and happy to receive them. Instead, they encounter deceit and treachery. The crown prince, once excited and eager to join the Federation, now refuses even to speak with Captain Picard.

Beaming to the surface in an attempt to work out the problem, Picard, Troi, and Mother Veronica, the abbess of the nuns, are drugged and captured. Now they must somehow escape and stop the crowning. If they cannot prevent it, the King will be omnipotent, with the power to destroy the Starship Enterprise and all of Capulon IV as well…

Little action, more of a mystery/drama novel really.. If you find yourself with a copy and some time to kill. I say give it a read haha.

Star Trek Book Challenge 17: Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

Star Trek Book Challenge 17: Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

217911The Borg and Captain Picard, how can you go wrong!? Let me start by saying this.. Thank God I picked up this book to read next. A lot of these Star Trek novels are so painful to get through. Oh should there are a few winners, but the number losers out weights them sadly. But Vendetta is making up for a lot of them :). So for this challenge I’m reading Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by…

Oh should there are a few winners, but the number losers out weights them sadly. But Vendetta is making up for a lot of them :). So for this challenge I’m reading Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by Peter David, now to let you know that Vendetta is a sequel for I guess you would say the events of “The Doomsday Machine”. Which is an episode for the original series of Star Trek and the episodes for “The Best of Both Worlds” Parts 1 & 2, from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Vendetta The Borg — half organic being and half machine, they are the most feared race in the known galaxy. In their relentless quest for technological perfection, they have destroyed entire star systems, enslaved countless peoples, and, in a single brutal attack, decimated Starfleet’s mightiest vessels. Only a final desperate gambit by Captain Picard and the “U.S.S. Enterprise(TM) ” crew stopped the Borg from conquering the entire Federation. And now they have returned. VENDETTA

In the bestselling tradition of “Metamorphosis” and “The Lost Years,” here is the newest Star Trek (R) Giant Novel, a story of vengeance and obsession.

Answering a distress call from a planet under attack by the Borg, the U.S.S. Enterprise crew meets Delcara, the lone survivor of an alien race the Borg obliterated. Blinded by hatred, Delcara seeks the ultimate revenge — the complete destruction of her race’s executioners. But the U.S.S. Enterprise crew learns that Delcara’s vengeance carries a terrible price, for once unleashed, the destructive force she commands will annihilate not only the Borg, but countess innocents as well…

I love this book and Peter David does a great job at using all the characters from the show. Even if it only for the basic of needs. The story line great and moves right along, I think if there was an issues with this book. I would have to say it would be the use and how Data comes off. But other than that I rather enjoyed this book from start to finish.

So if you fine to to read this, I say go for it. BUT! If you are to watch or read “The Doomsday Machine”,  “The Best of Both Worlds” Parts 1 & 2, I say do that first. But I don’t think it is a requirement to do so.

The Amish Were Right About Star Trek

So much has been going on the last week. Plus not having internet for that week didn’t help any haha. But I got a new job and that has been eating up a lot of my time, because we’re starting for the ground up and I’m helping train everyone as well. Aside from that I’m balance my podcasting schedule as well and coming up with new topics for Geek Fallout and Eclectic Mayhem. So I have a feeling…

Aside from that I’m balance my podcasting schedule as well and coming up with new topics for Geek Fallout and Eclectic Mayhem. So I have a feeling somethings might have to change, but I won’t know till next week.

Now we do have  a Eclectic Mayhem podcast coming up this weekend and the theme kinda is Robots (here is the post for the NEW Eclectic Mayhem)  and anything else we see fit haha. Also have a Geek Fallout podcast coming up on Monday and I think we’ll be going over Stargate some more! As for Nerdy Life Of Mine I haven’t been here for the past week or so, do to lack of internet and time. I do have lots to update on and post. Kinda have a stock pile to go over. But India (my sister) has been posting here and there, keeping things going :).

So the other day in the morning I got this little package in the mail labeled “TrekFan” http://padd.trekfan.org. There I followed Emmett Plant @EmmettPlant on Twitter and join the club on his site. But The pack looked like this:

20150515_11183520150515_111737

Inside was a set of 1993 SkyBox Master Series Star Trek trading Cards. Need I say more? A rather cool way to start off the day haha. The cards I got were Reaching Out To Picard, Praxis Explodes, In The Mind Of V’ger, Lieutenant Wolf, and The Bolians… Plus a checklist, because those are important haha.

unnamedSo thank you to Emmett Plant @EmmettPlant & “TrekFan” http://padd.trekfan.org for the random little gift!

Anywho! I’ll be posting a new schedule of things to come. I really don’t think NLOM will be affected by the change, but the podcasts times might. Wouldn’t know for sure till next week. Beside it’ll be my and Carly’s 2 year anniversary next week as well. So it might be quite again next week :).

With Derek Ash hosting, Chris Gaida producing and with podcasters Evan Hanson and MissM the crew of the ‘Geek Fallout’ podcast delve into the topic of: ‘Redoing Star Wars with other pop culture characters’

(personally I always wanted to see ‘Magnum PI’ replace ‘Han Solo’ with ‘Harry’ from “Harry and the Hendersons” as Chewbacca. Jessica Fletcher as ‘Mon Mothma’, Justin Bieber as ‘Greedo’…the possibilities are endless…)
And yes you read the title right! The Amish Were Right About Star Trek… This bring an important question, would there be any Amish in the Star Trek universe?
