Mini Book-Review: Articles of the Federation

Finished reading Star Trek: Articles of the Federation today (by Keith R.A. DeCandido).
It's about the Federation's new president and her first year in office, and takes place in the new "expanded universe" of inter-related novels.  Not a bad story. One of my favorite supporting/guest/recurring characters retired from Starfleet at the end.  It was an interesting look at the political side of the Star Trek universe - what happens while the starships are doing their thing.

I've still got a couple of other ST novels on my shelf to get to, but right now I'm reading an SF novel called "Migration" in the "Species Imperative" series by Julie E. Czerneda.  It's quite an interesting series involving a salmon-researcher from Earth, an alien species that liquidates and then devours every living thing (plant/animal/etc) on a planet then moves on, and spies from the Interspecies Union. The first book in the series was really good, I'm a little more than half-way through with the 2nd book - it's not as good as the first book, kinda slow, especially the first half, but it's getting better.
