YMMV: Star Trek: The Lost Era

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The goodbye scene between Picard and Ariel in The Buried Age
  • Fridge Brilliance: The "night people" sub-plot in Well of Souls becomes considerably more meaningful and fascinating when a reader recalls a certain key speech in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine A Stitch in Time, which the subplot is in large part based on.
  • Tear Jerker: As usual, anything involving the Vulcan/Romulan sundering, particularly in Catalyst of Sorrows:
    "Was the silence absolute, or did their ships sometimes...pass in the night? And if, when Romulus and Earth were at war and the Vulcans hung their heads and said "we don't know who these people are", was it at least partly true?"
    • The death of Hadlo, and also that of Bennek in Day of the Vipers. The former in particular:
    "Oralius! Prophets! My love is for you both!"
