Star Control 2 novelization finished (Eternal Doctrine)
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:33:42 pm »

Indeed Eternal Doctrine is finished! I ask you to check out all relevant information from this blog post I created.

In a nutshell, Star Control 2 novelization consists of two books: Groombridge Log and Eternal Doctrine, written by Tommi Salminen.

If you just want to start reading, here's a direct link to the PDF.

And since you can also buy the book, here's a direct link to Eternal Doctrine in Amazon.

Thank you for attention and please enjoy the story as much as I did.

Indeed I'd prefer to have more comments and especially reviews at online book stores. Groombridge Log got four excellent reviews on Amazon, but Eternal Doctrine hasn't got a single one.

If you read Eternal Doctrine, me and the rest of the world would like to hear your opinions.

OMG I remember reading Groombridge Log several times when it came out. Such a well-written thing. I have to give the sequel a read as well. Thanks a lot for your efforts!

I tried, but I can't give reviews in Amazon because I never buy anything from there.
But if you need help elsewhere, I'll gladly do it.

Goodreads would also be a good place to write a review.

Moro Tommi,

Ei tätä varmaan Suomeksi löydy Smiley ?

For the rest, sorry couldn’t resist to put it in Finnish.

No Finnish version available.

There is one guy who is translating it into Russian and the last time I checked he was going on chapter 5. For you Russian natives, here's a link

(Also, if the Russian translator is reading this, I'd like to have a chat with you. Please contact me so we can talk business.)

So, if you really want a Finnish translation, you are free to try to make one yourself.

This guy is me. Yes, the last year I abandoned the translation, but just now I decided to return to it, and for the last couple of weeks I edited those ready-made 5 chapters, at the same time refreshing the story in my memory. But in any case I will be translating for a very long time to talk about some business. I began to do this at the end of 2016, immediately on our forum, and for 5 chapters and the prologue I left about six months. I do this only in my spare time at my job. Smiley

P.S. And, Tiberian, thank you for the books. Very worthy.

Hey, thought it might fit here too instead of only on reddit...


Quote from: u/Tiberian on reddit
The Ur-Quan Masters novelization duology (Groombridge Log and Eternal Doctrine) was originally supposed to be a comic. Drawing the story turned out to be too cumbersome, but the prologue and chapter 1 were finished before the project was buried in 2010.

Chapter one of the book as comic.

If you like it, the only way to get to the end of the story is to play UQM, or to buy the books .

This link no longer works, because I updated the translation. No, nothing new, just a little improvement. The new edition is now here.

I just finished reading it.

Fantastic work.  I love the fact that The Captain wasn't the primary focus, the characters of the XO and crew-members were most enjoyable.     

On top of that I love the minor tweeks that filled in gaps and smoothed over the "game world" to make a cohesive story.

Five out of five stars.   Will read again.
