I looked up Lt.Boma in Memory Alpha to help put a face to the name, and I noticed he has apperaed in two previous non-canon books(Dreadnought and Battlestations). Does his posting to the Huang Zhong jive with those two previous books? They have him listed as a civilian scientist not a Stafleet Lieutenant.
I don't think they jibe at all. (Jive = nonsense or deceptive talk; jibe = agree or be in accord; gibe = mock or deride.) Dreadnought and Battlestations fit into the old '80s version of Trek novel continuity, which is very different from what the later shows and books have established.
