Not that this will make the slightest bit of difference to my enjoyment of the book (I'm really just idly curious), but am I right in thinking that the background for Saavik in this book and the one in Carolyn Clowes' excellent The Pandora Principle are contradictory?
From my interview with Margaret Wander Bonanno last year:

“I’m relying somewhat on Carolyn Clowes’ excellent novel The Pandora Principle,” she reveals. “In the novelisation of The Wrath of Khan, Vonda McIntyre makes passing reference to Saavik’s being half-Romulan and an orphan from a planet called Hellguard, but isn’t able to go into a lot of detail. Clowes takes that concept much further, showing us a feral child surviving on a hostile world when the Romulans abandon it. I’m paying homage to that in a number of flashbacks, tweaking it a bit to fit my story.
