Well, what do you expect?

Most stories steal stuff from other places nowadays.

I started it the other night, I'm mostly through it right now, but they did steal a lot from M*A*S*H (probably why I like it so much). Really there's no focus on any of the main characters unless you've read The Approaching Storm and remember Barris Offee. Good book so far, I just wish that there was a Klinger character ;p

EDIT: Why do SW medics need labs anyways? Got a bacterial infection? Into the bacta with you! Injury? Bacta. viral disease? Bacta. Bug bite? Bacta.......lol.

LOL

And try reading 5 or 6 diffs in a row TSL. That's torture on the eyes. Also one of the reasons that I had to get contacts

Well, so long as the books aren't another ER style glorification of doctors, they sound like fun :p

I just finished reading it at about 1am. Good book, the bug out was well written and only a few more weeks now until Medstar 2 comes out and we can get the conclusion. It's kinda like a season finale and then the opener

I finished reading MedStar II today. I was hoping, especially with the title that it'd focus more on Barris than it did, but it was still a pretty interesting read. I thought that I knew who the spy was the entire book, but then realized that's what the authors wanted you to think.
