Bio Rescue

Bio Rescue, by S.L. Viehl

This is another one by S.L. Viehl. Just like Blade Dancer it's in the same universe, but has different characters. The main species in this one are the 'Zangians who are aquatic. The whole idea of pods and a lack of property and a quite pragmatic view of life/injury/death. It's a very different way of looking at the world, from the perspective of a dolphin-person. Lots of inter-species stuff too, I love the way Viehl writes aliens! And I have to say, I was quite attached to the main character by the end of the book.

Some Assembly Required

SCE: Some Assembly Required, by

Well, I've certainly been on a sci-fi reading kick lately! This is book three in the "Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers" series. They're really fun books. They all started out as e-books, and each of the paperback versions has three or four e-books in it. The various stories all reference each other which I really like. Every now and then a character from one of the tv shows will show up, but for the most part they're all book-only characters. There's some really interesting one's too! A couple of the stories in this book focused on just a few of the characters and that was really nice. Kind of like a "Geordi episode" or a "Data episode".

There's really not a ton to say about it besides, it's Star Trek! And I'm a Trekkie!

No Surrender

SCE: No Surrender, by

It's amazing how much reading a person can do when they're stuck in airplanes and airports all day! I'm going to have to read something that's not Star Trek at some point I think.

So today I had some more adventures with the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. There were earthquakes, plagues, a prison break, and a crazy computer!

Yeah, not much else to say about it. It's Star Trek, it's fun, it's great airplane reading!
