Kindof- but Destiny is set so far in the future. Take the DS9R- We've been getting novels since what? 2001? But we're still nine months past where the series ended. There is an awful lot of crew tweaking that could happen over the next few years that probably isn't refined yet. I'm sure the editor could truly say... :P But for us to "really" know who was around or what they were all going through- especially re characters from the series, would be giving something away. Still, I too was a bit surprised there wasn't a few more bits about Sisko, Kira, the Dominion... but that makes me more eager to follow the DS9R.
