That Harriman book looks interesting

Do you think the Harriman story will touch upon anything spoken about in the fan-movie “Of Gods And Men” when Harriman said he was going to quit Starfleet over the Kirk incident if Uhura and Checkov hadn’t been there for him/befriended him.
Maybe they will cast that kind of relationship for McCoy’s guest appearence.
I do like the idea of someone who served with Kirk for 20+ years explaining to Harriman that sh*t happens and to not beat yourself up.

@2. If they did have something like that, it wouldn’t necessarily have to have come from “Of Gods And Men” (it’s pretty simple theme, methinks.)

The book certainly looks interesting (I haven’t read the Harriman Lost Era novel yet), although the art on these issues is pretty mediocre all around… thank god for Byrne!

Although, looking closely, that Klingon on crutches looks a lot like Terrax :P

@3: The Lost Era novel (“Serpents Among the Ruins”) is one of my all-time FAVORITE Trek novels. Romulan intrigue, the fleshing-out of what had been a “throwaway” character, and Elias Vaughn (though in a supporting role); what’s not to like? For some reason, I have been drawn to the captains and characters about which we know little (Christopher Pike “Prime”, Harriman, Vaughn, etc.).


Go read “Serpents”. I will be reading the Harriman comic for sure.

I’d like to see a Captain Garrett issue. We don’t know much about the Enterprise-C apart from its legendary battle at Narendra III. Or a Captain Riker issue. I think a “Titan” series would do well.

@4: I haven’t read the Lost Era book either, but I did just start reading “The Captain’s Daughter” by Peter David, which touches on the same time period, and Harriman is a major character. He’s… a seriously messed-up dude. Lots of fun to read about, though. I highly recommend it.

@5: I second the Captain Garrett issue idea!

I’d also like to see a “Captain’s Log” issue with Captain Picard commanding the Stargazer.

Picard-Stargazer and a Capt Garrett are both great ideas. Jeez, they could totally get away with like 10 stand-alones.

That colorist nailed it!

Re: #9 –
I agree a hundred percent. Love to see a
Rachel Garrett novel (if they haven’t already
made one that i missed).

what about a comic series based around Peter Kirk? we never really got much about him outside TOS “Operation: Annihilate”, and a few novels here and there.
