Yes, Kris and I saw the new movie tonight. Good Star Trek.
And remember before you say something really silly here in a comment, I wrote more Star Trek than any other book author and edited Star Trek short fiction for ten years for Pocket Books.
And I wrote in every series, (many with Kris) including the first original books in Voyager and Enterprise and I wrote the first book in Star Trek:SCE.
So it was a good Star Trek movie. Worth seeing.
And no, I have no desire to write Trek anymore and no one has asked me in a decade. The writers like Dayton Ward and David Alan Mack and Keith deCandido and Kevin Dilmore and Greg Cox and others are doing a great job with the books. Support their work if you want great Star Trek novels.
