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?
Why not? It's not like every Trek novel out there is telling the same story. That TTN, TNG, and VOY are more or less on the same page is just what the editors and authors feel work best for those series. NF and DS9 get to continue on their own, at their own paces, whilst, of course, TOS, ENT, and VAN get to do their thing back in the 23rd and 22nd Centuries.

Will we see the effects of this on the DS9 characters, such as Kira and Vaughn, when they reach 2381?
I would just point out that the Borg's invasion fleet originated in the Beta Quadrant and that most of the damage done was borne there. DS9 and Bajor are literally on the other side of the Federation, so it's possible that the effects of the invasion would be minimized from their POV.

Either way, I think the DS9 series needs more than two books in 2009.
What, Terok Nor doesn't count?
