Oh, and the excerpt from Tokyopop's Star Trek Manga saga was about as bad as you might expect; terrible writing telling a trite (Dr. McCoy saves the day much to the chagrin of not-really as-logical-as-you-might-expect Vulcans) story, illustrated by terrible artwork in which the characters are almost completely unrecognizable.
The stories varied from thought-provoking (the bookends, "Meet with Triumph and Disaster" and "Trust Yourself When All Men Doubt You") to downright hysterical ("Thinking of You"), from compelling ("Friends with the Sparrows") to, er, "CATastic" ("On the Spot"). IMNSHO, even the weakest story ("Ordinary Days") had merit, if for no other reason than we met someone who would actually *marry* Wesley, even if it was in an AU. Oh, har-de-har-har.
So, if you're a Next Gen fan, as well as a fan of the pro writers, you just can't go wrong with this book.
And, of course, let's not forget my fetish for good cover art. Kudos to artist Stephan Martiniere for his absolutely fabulous cover - and thanks Pocket Books for listing his name on the inside page. Well done!
As to the manga excerpt in the very back: eh. I suppose it's great for those who like it, but I'm not one of 'em. Plus I thought it was kinda strange to have a classic Trek comic in a Next Gen anniversary anthology, but I suspect that was just an advertising decision, based more on the timing of publication than fan interest. I can deal.
This book completes the story, and I recommend this book to all. Thank you and good day.
