Re: Charting the Novel-verse

VOY and ENT
As with the DS9 books, I'll start the "core continuities" for Voyager and Enterprise with the beginning of the post-finale adventures and serialized storytelling, and factor in connections below.
Voyager:
Core Continuity


Christie Golden wrote the first four post-finale novels. She crossed Old Wounds into TNG: The Battle of Betazed.
  • Homecoming
  • The Farther shore
Spirit Walk
  • Old Wounds
  • Enemy of My Enemy
The series was then continued by author Kirsten Beyer. Full Circle contains scenes with Tuvok on the Titan and crosses over with the Destiny trilogy. Full Circle also references the short story "Isabo's Shirt" by Beyer from the anthology Distant Shores.
  • Full Circle
  • Unworthy
  • Children of the Storm
  • The Eternal Tide
  • Unnamed Beyer book

Connections

Christie Golden

Christie Golden wrote several Voyager novels before her post-finale works. They were all internally consistent with one another and included the character Lyssa Campbell, a character that Golden brought into the post-finale "core" books. She also wrote the Voyager entry for the Gateways crossover that spanned the lit line.
  • The Murdered Sun
  • Marooned
  • Seven of Nine
  • Gateways book five: No Man's Land and the novella "In The Queue" from Gateways book seven: What Lay Beyond
Dark Matters
  • Cloak and Dagger
  • Ghost Dance
  • Shadow of Heaven
String Theory
A trilogy of novels taking place during the series run that was referenced in Q&A by Keith R. A. DeCandido.
  • Cohesion by Jeffrey Lang
  • Fusion by Kirsten Beyer
  • Evolution by Heather Jarman
Connected:
  • TNG: Double Helix book four Quarantine by John Vornholt is essentially a Voyager tale. The Double Helix storyline crossed over directly with the New Frontier series and Stargazer continuities.
  • Section 31: Shadow by Dean Wesley Smith and Kathryn Kristine Rusch was part of the Section 31 mini that spanned the lit-line.
  • The Badlands duology by Susan Wright features a Voyager tale set in the novel continuity.
  • The Brave and the Bold book two features a Voyager tale. the BatB ties directly into the post-finale DS9 books and the IKS Gorkon series.
  • Tales From the Captains Table featured the Captain Chakotay short story "Seduced" by Christie Golden.
  • A Time for War, A Time for Peace by Keith R.A. DeCandido established the "holographic Kahless" made possible by classified emitter technology obtained by Voyager. Full Circle established that the tech was supplied to Kahless by Belanna Torres.
  • TNG: Before Dishonor, by Peter David, guest starred Janeway and Seven of Nine and had major repercussions in the Voyager series.
  • The Destiny trilogy by David Mack featured appearances by several from Voyager characters and directly crossed-over with Full Circle.
  • A Singular Destiny Keith R.A. DeCandido planted a plot seed that was picked up in Full Circle and Unworthy.

Mirror Universe: Obsidian Alliances featured the mirror-Voyager novel The Mirror-Scaled Serpent by Keith R.A. DeCandido that fits into the same mirror-continuity that has crossed into both the DS9 lit and the New Frontier series.

Myriad Universes: Infinity's Prism featured the novel Places of Exile by Christopher L. Bennett that included an alternate universe version of lit-only character Lyssa Campbell. Christopher's annotations for Places of Exile can be found here...

Enterprise

Post-Finale fiction
  • The Good That Men Do by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels
  • Kobayashi Maru by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels
  • The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wings by Michael A. Martin
  • The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm
  • Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. Bennett

Dave Stern

Author Dave Stern wrote four Enterprise novels set during the series. In each of his books, he included the character of night-shift XO, Donna O'Neill. The character of O'Neill was later imported into the post-finale fiction.
  • What Price Honor?
  • Daedalus
  • Daedalus' Children
  • Rosetta
Others
Last Full Measure by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels set up the post-finale books.
The Brave and the Bold book one by Keith R.A. DeCandido, a duology that crossed into the DS9 fiction, features a prologue with Archer and crew.
Tales From the Captains Table featured the short story "Have Beagle, Will Travel: The Legend of Porthos" by Louise M. Swann that featured Archer and Porthos.
Myriad Universes: Shards and Shadows includes the alternate universe Enterprise tale "Noabunga" by Dave Stern.
Enterprise notes from Sci...
The post-finale ENT novels also feature United Earth Interior Minister Haroun al-Rashid and Andorian Ambassador Avaranthi sh'Rothress, both of whom were first established in Articles of the Federation as early Federation Presidents from the 22nd Century. As with Titan: Taking Wing, the ENT Relaunch also uses the long form of Romulan names and the Rihannsu language established in Duane's novels (as well as the Andorian genders and naming conventions established in the DS9 lit. --tt) .

TGTMD and KM's establishing Nathan Samuels as United Earth Prime Minister places the ENT Relaunch in continuity with Tales of the Dominion War's "Eleven Hours Out" and with the Myriad Universes novel A Less Perfect Union. COE's mention of a United Earth President implies that United Earth has a republican parliamentary government, perhaps similar to, say, Ireland's or Italy's or Israel's.
