Reading through this book (my pace is much slower than usual because time seems to be slipping away from me at the moment), I can't help but wonder how the DS9 line is going to be handled with all of this. It's got years to catch up on, so how is that to be managed? Will we build up at its typically slow speed, with that series being perpetually behind the others? Will we see the effects of this on the DS9 characters, such as Kira and Vaughn, when they reach 2381?
Either way, I think the DS9 series needs more than two books in 2009.
