Re: new canon vs novelverse: worst case scenario
I remember enjoying Federation very much, and when it was superceeded by First Contact I did wonder if the authors might rewrite/rerelease it to fit around the movie. I think there's a fair few contradictions though...
blew it out of the water and I would've been disappointed if they had tried to rework it to fit First Contact
