The Shadow Commission by David Mack

Mrklingon shared a highlight from
Lost Souls by David Mack
“Inyx, are you in love with Captain Hernandez?” The looming alien bowed at the waist and half turned away, as if to conceal his ever-dour visage. “I don’t know if our species experience love the same way,” he said. “All I can say is that for me, she made eternity worth contemplating.”

“You welcome your children into the world knowing that if all goes the way you plan, you won’t get to see the end of their story. It seems a sad notion until you realize that’s what gives you hope for the future.”
David Mack, The Persistence of Memory

“Starship command is like comedy, Number One. Timing is everything.”
David Mack, Destiny: The Complete Saga: Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, and Lost Souls

“Drinkin’ two-fisted are ya?” “It’s all right, love—I’m a writer.”
David Mack, Storming Heaven

“I read a report from Starfleet Command last year that said you’d met the Greek deity Apollo. I was just wondering . . . did that really happen?” Kirk glanced at someone off-screen, then his mouth curled upward with playful mischief. “I prefer to think that Apollo met me. . . . Enterprise out.”
