    all the Star Trek in the air lately had me looking up the old tie-in books, which of course were never intended to be "canon" the way the awful Star Wars EU was, so they actually had some fun ones creep in here and there. I looked up a couple best-of lists and I am pleased to report that of the books listed from the time period I read Star Trek books (1989-1992 or so) the ones I liked most tend to be the ones that the listmakers also picked out.

    And this is, like, I didn't buy every book. I saved up the excess quarters from my lunch money so I could afford a $2.50 paperback once per week and I was confronted with a wall of Trek paperbacks and had to carefully peruse the covers and read the synopses on the back and the little excerpts on the first page before making my selection

    but apparently I guess I just picked the winners over and over idk I'm just that good

    PRIME DIRECTIVE WAS FUCKING RAD

    and yes it did.
    I actually really liked the idea! It was a big cloud of spores that could only grow in environments with lots of heat and water and radioactivity so it had evolved to travel through space and move toward worlds that had radio signals coming from them and it would send out little fungus drones to buzz the planet and try to get the inhabitants to nuke each other so it could land on the planet and feed

    and it was like do you kill this thing for the crime of being a hungry animal or should you respect cosmic nature and let it live etc etc

    Enterprise did untold violence to the Star Trek pedigree and, as they say, these violent delights have violent ends.

    Whelp, I think i'm getting close to a girl.

    She seems pretty flirty with me and I like her back.

    So this is a nice recent development. I mean, it's okay if I'm misunderstanding the signals and she just wants to be friends but the fact that it's a possibility that she'd like me as more than a friend fills me with warmth.

    i wonder how that one was

    that was way after I had stopped reading star trek books but I am definitely curious. sometimes celebrity ghostwritten tie-in novels can actually be good goofy fun. William Shatner's TekWar was delicious. it had an actually pretty okay action/mystery story about a future cyberdetective hunting down the makers of a future cyberdrug but everything in the world was prefixed "Tek" so the drug was called Tek, Shatner was a TekDetective, he took his TekCar to the TekMotel and flashed his TekBadge to be shown to the dead TekHead, etc

    and his character's name was "Jake Cardigan"

    I defy anyone to come up with a more perfect package

    It was a dark and stormy TekNight and TekJake put on his TekCardigan to block the TekChill from the TekWind.

    I should've paid more attention.

    I remember the TekWar TV show being a thing in the late 90s.

    Now it's the future and I don't know how to operate my TekComputer well enough to read my TekMail.
