singular destiny

another Singular Destiny review

Jon Polk has reviewed Star Trek: A Singular Destiny.

Money quote:
Following up on the events of Destiny, Keith R.A. DeCandido does an excellent job in A Singular Destiny describing and contextualizing the events of that trilogy on the broader populace of the Federation and surrounding powers.

Thanks to infinitydog, who pointed me to this review while linking to Jon's negative reviews of Destiny. Ah, irony....

THOMAS JEFFERSON'S RULES FOR LIFE

Never put off till to-morrow what you can do today.
Never trouble others for what you can do yourself.
Never spend your money before you have it.
Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap.
Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold.
We never repent of having eaten too little.
Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly.
How much pain have those evils cost us which never happened.
Take things always by their smooth handle.
When angry, count to ten before you speak--if very angry, a hundred.


We need greater virtues to sustain good fortune than bad.
Duc de la Rouchefoucauld (1613-80)

First of all, thanks to everyone who sent me encouraging e-mails, messages, etc. You're all wonderful people.

I'm doing better today. With luck, I'll be better tomorrow. terri_osborne and I had a very nice, long chat, which helped both of us a great deal.

Took it relatively easy today. Had a good karate class, and did some research. Also watched Will Ferrell's You're Welcome, America: A Final Night with George W. Bush, which was magnificent -- not a word I use in association with the mostly irritating Ferrell very often. But this was right in his wheelhouse, and it was an excellent, if sometimes bittersweet, look back at the life of the 43rd President of the United States. I especially liked the breakdancing Secret Service agent....

Tomorrow, it's back into Spectres, and also writing up a comics proposal.
