Hhhmmm.... very interesting.
Though I still think at the very least, they could have used SISKO or CHAKOTAYa little more (maybe in Book III?). It could be an excellent opportunity to tease the audience about upcoming DS9 or VOY novels. For example, in book II the Tholian ambassador's reference to "what happened at Taurus Reach" peeked my interest enough that I finally broke down and order the first 3 VANGUARD novels.
Are there any plans then to bring DS9 and VOY novels up to the same timeline as TNG and TITAN series in the immediate future?
