I would love to hear your thoughts on this point -
How do you feel about having a "second finale" so soon after the "official finale" of VAN?
I don't think that's an accurate characterization. Here's what Dayton's revealed about it so far:
  • The label is supposed to be TOS rather than Vanguard.
  • It is "a 'coda' of sorts."
  • It's told mostly from the perspective of non-VNG characters.

So that tells me it's not a "Vanguard finale," but a TOS tale dealing with some of the broader consequences/aftermath of the events of VNG.
you have a point there, Christopher. As I mentioned in the past, VAN (or VNG) as a complete story (though very much a part of the larger Trek universe) is a shining example of both top notch planning and execution by everyone involved.

Having a "post-finale Finale" kind of ruins that for me, so I hope you're right.

As to your last point, doesn't a lot of TOS proper (and TOS films) deal with what you termed the broader consequences/aftermath of the events of VNG?
RonG is Right!
