Default The Star Trek: Vanguard novel series thread

Long story short, the Vanguard series is some of the best Trek I've ever seen in written form. So far there have been 5 books published, and if you like Trek, particularly TOS-era Trek, these books are for you.

Anyway, some of us got to talking about the series at Wonderfest. I'd mentioned that I'd found a page where the creator, David Mack, listed some annotations to the first book and mentioned who he had in mind when he came up with the central characters. Here's the link:

Thanks for that, Cat. Catherine Bell as Atish? Hells yeah!

During that same conversation, I mentioned having collected a few images of Vanguard station as it was developed - different designs, and different scaling. Here they are:

Damn fine pics and great study material.

I'll start doing so shortly. I'm busy imagining Katherine Heigl and Bridget Moynahan in bed together.

Plus being on a little scout ship with:





Okay. Now where we? Catherine Bell in a TOS minidress?


Oh hell.



Be back later!

Dave, I remember you telling me about this series at last year's WF. In my Army days, I used to read Trek novels on guard duty. I started reading the first Vanguard book last August when my life took a hard left turn. I don't have that book anymore, but I'm hoping one day in the future I can revisit the series.

I'm going to be in New York this Sunday. Are book stores going to be open? Is it some sort of holiday?
