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 acommodate 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
  • Avatar book one by S.D. Perry
  • Avatar book two by S.D. Perry
  • Section 31: Rogue by Jeffrey Weddle and Jeffrey Lang
  • Gateways book four: Demons of Air and Darkness and the novella "Horn and Ivory" in Gateways book seven: What Lay Beyond by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Mission Gamma
  • Twilight by David R. George III
  • This Gray Spirit by Heather Jarman
  • Cathedral by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels

The Lives of Dax -- While completely consistant 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 rhe charater T'Pau inthe Lela tale can not possibly be the T'Pau from TOS and ENT due to inconsistancies with her age.

Why is A Stitch in Time is just in the Connected section, instead of the Secondary continuity section? Especially since the Secondary continuity list includes The Lives of Dax (also published before Avatar), Terok Nor trilogy (heavily includes the Oralian Way, which was originally introduced in A Stitch in Time), and Prophecy and Change ("The Calling" is a sequel to ASIT)? Also, apart from being directly referenced in Avatar, ASIT established Garak's role in the post-Dominion Cardassia that was referenced in the later books, includingThe Never-Ending Sacrifice, and, from what I've heard (haven't read it yet), the Cardassian story in Worlds of Deep Space Nine?

Another thing, shouldn't Seeds of Dissent be 'connected' both to the Eugenics Wars books (which I believes it references) and - by the same principle you used to classify Places of Exile as related to VOY continuity - DS9 (even though his family name is never stated, it's obvious that the character called "Mace" is meant to be an alternate version of Darrah Mace from Terok Nor: Day of the Vipers; pretty much everyone else in the novella is a version of a character we already know, the age fits - he is described as an older Bajoran man, which he would be at the time when the novella takes place, and the novella and Day of the Vipers were both written by James Swallow)?
Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
