Re: Charting the Novel-verse
The parasite infestation on Benecia doesn't come from any pre-existing work of Trek Lit. I wanted to work in at least an oblique reference to every time-travel episode of ST, and since ENT: "Twilight" was erased from history, leaving no way any character in the book could know about it, I decided to include mention of
interspatial parasite infestation so that at least something from that episode would get a nod.
I'm sure this is me just having a brain freeze, but what episode/book/comic has the story about the Defiant making several loops through time to retrieve crewmates, after seeing reality change around them? It's referenced in Chapter 3.
, I think. Kira and O'Brien making several trips through time to find Sisko, Bashir and Dax? They realize something went screwy in time when they can't pick up any Federation signals in their present, only a Romulan transmission from Alpha Centauri, but they of course remember the "real" history.
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
