It was brought up in a thread recently and discussed by the staff and now I have the privilege to let you know that a Book Club is now here!

We will be reading and discussing various Trek books each month here at the Omega Sector and hopefully have fun doing it!

The first book reading will begin April 1st (no this isn't an April Fool's joke) and we'll have the discussion on the 29th!

So, for those of you interested, our first read will be Star Trek Vanguard: Harbinger!

I originally wanted to do Warpath, but decided I should just do one of the books I just picked up since I don't have time to go up to the bookstore and order another book, besides the fact that I'm broke right now :P

Harbinger is one of the best Trek books to come down the pike for a while. This should be a lot of fun!

Yeah, that is the plan as of this moment.. new book one month, older one the next.

Can those of us who read the book back in January (and consequently no longer remeber the fine details), and read close to fifty books since, join in?

I have no clue actually, I was waiting to see where everyone was at so we can make an appropriate time because of the time zone differences.
