Well, we've got not only Sisko and who knows what else in "The Rough Beasts of Empire", but Bashir and Dax in "Zero Sum Game" and Shar in "Paths of Disharmony". So three out of the four "Typhon Pact" books have at least some
claim to DS9 status on some level. I'm sure that will keep us going. Although I too am eager for a continuation of the DS9 books.
Oh well, 2011 looks great as it is, and we can't have everything. Maybe in 2012.
