Some more info on The Fall... (sorry if repost)
 
Blurb for the second novel in the series, The Crimson Shadow:

Quote:

The U.S.S. Enterprise has been sent to Cardassia Prime, where Captain Jean-Luc Picard is involved in discussions over the removal of the small number of remaining Starfleet forces left over from the end of the Dominion War. Also present is the Cardassian Ambassador to the Federation, Elim Garak. All parties involved are keen to see Starfleet leave Cardassian soil, not only because the Cardassians are now allies of the Federation, but because Starfleet has been badly overstretched in recent years and the resources are needed elsewhere. With so much goodwill at the highest levels, this meeting should be a formality. However, within a few days of the arrival of the Enterprise, a Bajoran Federation officer is found murdered. The crime may be racially motivated: an ultra-nationalist organization called "Cardassia First" has been stirring up anti-Federation feeling across Cardassia over the past year, and a Bajoran is an obvious target..

Blurb for the third novel, A Ceremony of Losses

Quote:

Despite heroic efforts, the Andorian species is headed for extinction. Its slow march toward oblivion has reached a tipping point, one from which there will be no hope of return. With countless lives at stake, the leaders of Andor, the Federation, and the Typhon Pact all scheme to twist the crisis to their political gain at any price. Unwilling to be a mere bystander to tragedy, Doctor Julian Bashir risks everything to find a cure for the Andorians. But his courage will come at a terrible cost...


If this is a repost, my apologies. The mods can close/remove/merge this topic then.

They both sound amazing!!! And great follow-ons from both DS9 and the DS9 relaunch: so lovely to see.

I feel so spoiled. When I became a ST fan in December 1979, desperately seeking out previous TOS episodes that had featured Andorians, revisiting "Yesteryear" (TAS) and "Mr Spock's Time Trek" (its View-Master adaptation) - and wishing Paramount would do a sequel to TMP featuring John Phillip Law as a rogue Andorian antagonist - I never imagined that so many tie-in novels (and episodes of "Enterprise") would start focusing on Andorians decades down the track.

Bliss.

"A terrible cost". I'm worried for Bashir!

Maybe I'm missing something, but are there any blurbs for the first novel available anywhere?

The blurb for the first novel is the generic blurb about The Fall:

Quote:

The Federation is rocked to its core as the Typhon Pact is suspected of being behind a barbarous act that shatters the fragile peace of the Alpha Quadrant. An original Star Trek novel, this is part of a five-book story arc that takes place over a sixty-day period, but it’s not necessary to read each novel in order to follow the storyline, which involves all aspects of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine universes.

It'll all be for the best if it gets rid of his duplicitous girlfriend...

That's kind of what it sounds like, but you gotta remember that David Mack is the author. I'm sure several thousand/million other people will also die :devil:

Or I wonder if this will be the death of Bashir?

Those sound really good. I'm hopping I'll be caught up with the 24th Century stuff by the time the series is coming up.

These do sound really good.

I need to get caught up on the Typhon Pact books by the time these come out. Seems like another Destiny type level of awesomeness based on the title.

^^I'm of the opinion the title just refers to the season fall, also known as autumn. Given the series covers a sixty day period, that could easily be October and November.

^I gather that is actually where the title came from in reality -- the editor and authors talking about what the fall project for 2013 would be, and the description sticking -- but I'm pretty certain that's not what it means in-story.

Maybe it's a book mini-series about Deanna's latest hairpiece?
