Re: Charting the Novel-verse

The post-Finale Deep Space Nine literature has the most intricate and complex continuity of all the Trek novel lines. To accommodate this, the core-novels will be listed as either part of the "Primary Core Continuity" or the "Secondary Core Continuity." The "Primary core continuity" is the "main" DS9 story, and the "secondary core continuity" are books and stories that aren't a part of the main story, but were released with deliberate connections to it.

Primary Core Continuity

The Lives of Dax -- While completely consistent with the post-finale fiction, the Audrid and Joran tales are of particular interest to the DS9 series as a whole. It should also noted that the character T'Pau in the Lela tale can not possibly be the T'Pau from TOS and ENT due to inconsistencies with her age.
