A general question for the authors here (Trek and non-Trek), not necessarily related to The Red Ensign: when you submit a non-final title to your publicist, how often is it a title that is actually related to the material of the work, and therefore could end up being the final title? And how often is it just something random that you put down to call the work something for the time being?
Publicist? You must mean "editor." And I think a working title usually has some connection to the subject matter, even if it's just entered on the contract as STAR TREK: TITAN BOOK THREE or STAR TREK THE LOST ERA: PICARD. When I come up with an actual working title, it's always something related to the story, even if it's not the best feasible title. I don't just call it Blue Harvest or something.
