Re: Star Trek Vanguard: In Tempest's wake by Dayton Ward
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.
Which I want much more of. Just because Vanguard is over, I still want to see the aftermath spill over into TOS, including the survivors...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
