Just recently I recommended Keith DeCandido's I.K.S. Gorkon books to some fellow warriors. I found the adventures of the honorable Captain Klag and the spirited crew of the I.K.S. Gorkon quite enjoyable. Any thoughts on DeCandido or the books?

I love this series! I just wish they came out more often.

The author DeCandido truly captures the Klingon heart. His use of the warrior language is accurate (I believe he consults with the KLI), and adds much to the enjoyment of the story. I like the use of established Trek Klingons, which strengthens the ties to the Trek Universe.

My one wish would be that the adventures of the I.K.S. GORKON became a new Trek TV series (such as the oft rumored Klingon-series spinoff).

I also love the series.  It is skillfully wrote and the list's in the back are good (especially the list of who he based his characters on).
 
While reading the first book when the Klag killed his enemy(not naming for the sake of those who did not read it yet) and Keith was describing the fight and then the death I honestly felt the urge to partisipate in the death howl.  An urge I had to repress since I was sitting at the counter of a diner, where I am a regular, at the time.

The thing I like most about the series is that Keith DeCandido sucessfully integrated the tv klingon society and the klingon society portrayed is books like The Final Reflection.

I have not read the books.
Is it a series or what?
I am always looking for a good Klingon Book.

Among the things I like about the books is the way he's weaving many of the concepts of The Final reflection into the canon structure of the Klingons that has developed since it was originally published.

I am on the third book, and I tell you I absoultly love this series. I only wish they would make it into a TV Series, then we can all experiance the true Klingon Nature!

I can't wait to fininish the last book, so far they just entered the Sphere through the polluted water, and it is getting good!

If it were a TV show, it would have to feature a lot of previous guest stars. That's one of the best things about it, in my opinion, is the fact that we have met so many of the characters before. Especially Toq, and Rodek.

Yeah, that is why I really got into these books, I still like Goran, I would love to see his character! I think they would have a hit if they made it a series, Space the final Conflect, these are the vouyages of the I.K.S. Gorkon, to boldly conqure new worlds and bring them into the empire! Grin Something like that!

Just my thoughts.

I did see a Klingon website somewhere that had the following quote:

"...to seek out new life and new civilisations - and boldy conquer them for the glory of the empire!"

Personally I love these books and as I have stated elsewhere on this forum, I just wish the author would hurry up and write some more.  I am intrigued as to whether Rodek will regain his memory, and the on/off romance between Kurak and Leskit.

I would love to see it televised but again, as has been discussed elsewhere, would you really trust Paramount to do it right?

Did anybody read the second Captain's Table set of books?  I ask because there was a story told by Klag, about him and his brother Dorek, that while sentimental, was very revealing.

[I have just finished reading " A Burning House" by the same author. It is a real insight into the Klingon way of life and it ties into so much that we already know. I am now searching for more from this author as he has a solid grasp on Klingon society. Qapla'
