Thanx for the many Welcomes. Now prepping to update uhura.com. Will keep you posted on progress on that front. Really busy. Luv, NN : )

What's your favourite Star Trek novel?

*agrees that this comm has been far to slow lately* "Might I suggest a party post Mods?"

Anyway where was I? Oh yes, what is your favourite Star Trek Novel? Doesn't matter whether it is TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager or Enterprise.

Personally my No. 1 would have to be the TOS/DS9 crossover "Trials and Tribble-ations" novelisation. Sisko and Dax throwing tribbles at Kirk's head has me ROFLMAO everytime.

Please be nice to eachother. I'm still scarred from some of thet comments in my last post here
