Connections with other series
  • New Frontier has had two Captain's Table stories, one novel and one short story.
  • TNG: The Q-Continuum trilogy was consistant with New Frontier continuity by acknowledging Dr. Selar's transfer to Excalibur.
  • Double Helix: Double or Nothing was a part of the Double Helix series that spanned the entire Trek-lit line. The main villain of the series was a Thallonian, a species developed for New Frontier, and The First Virtue had scene that featured Thallonians in Thallonian Space.
  • Gateways book six: Cold Wars and "Death After Life" from Gateways book seven: What Lay Beyond were a part of the Gateways crossover that spanned the Trek-lit line. Calhoun and Shelby also appeared briefly in the TNG and DS9 entries in the series. The Excalibur and crew appeared (sans Calhoun and Shelby) in the Gateways finale TNG: The Other Side by Robert Greenberger.
  • TNG: Diplomatic Implausibility featured cameos via communications with Worf from Soleta, Kebron and McHenry.
  • A Time to Kill made reference of the Danteri Empire.
  • SCE: The Future Begins tied in with the New Frontier: Excalibur trilogy.
  • DS9: Warpath featured a brief appearance by a Thallonian crewmember.
  • TNG: Q&A featured cameos from Elizabeth Shelby on Space Station Bravo and Katerina Mueller on the Trident.
  • The Destiny trilogy and A Singular Destiny featured reports of Mackenzie Calhoun's Excalibur preparing for a suicide attack on a Borg Cube before finding a way to defeat it.
I hate having thoughts on the top of my head. They usually jump off and commit suicide.
