Overall, this was very good, although with this being a couple years ahead of the rest of the series, I have to wonder if it'll be ages before the rest of the series catch up to Destiny.
That depends on what you mean by "the rest of the series." The next books in the TNG, Voyager
, and Titan
series will all take place after Destiny
(well, the next VGR book will begin two years earlier and fill in the intervening time, but it will end up some time past the trilogy). Otherwise, DS9 and Gorkon/Klingon Empire
are about four years behind DES and Corps of Engineers
was about three years behind when last we saw it. The last New Frontier
book was set about two years prior to DES, and it's unclear when the next one will take place.
Will there be an Aventine series following this at some point?
Probably not, but the Aventine
is featured in A Singular Destiny
early next year.
