This is such a hard choice, I'm torn between medical and engineering. Let's go with engineering since I am working on a Masters in Information Science. Yay for Trek and so many awesome giveaways.

Looking forward to the new book. Full Circle and Losing the Peace set the stage to introduce the Typhon Pact however, I was beginning to think nothing was going to materialize as 2010 has been a dry ST book year.

Definitely command for the win! By the way, I love the excerpts I've read for the forthcoming (David Mack) addition to the Typhon Pact storyline. I've been waiting (un)patiently for the books to start coming out. Curse Pocket Books for making us wait so long for our 24th century fix. lol
