Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

If TPTB had used the Typhon Pact branding (or another branding that could include VOY) to indicate the post-Destiny timeframe (as this is what seems to be the case), I wouldn't have any problem with it - what we're getting is (IMO) a marketing "ploy" without much input / regard to the actual ongoing narrative.
But that is not the case. There are plenty of novels in the post-Destiny timeframe that don't have the TP branding: A Singular Destiny, Losing the Peace, the entire Voyager series from Full Circle onward, Over a Torrent Sea, Synthesis, Fallen Gods, the two DTI novels, Indistinguishable from Magic, the upcoming TNG: Cold Equations trilogy, and the upcoming TNG e-novella The Stuff of Dreams. In fact, there are twice as many extant or upcoming post-Destiny tales without the TP label (16) as there are with it (8).

So it's bizarrely counterfactual to claim that the TP branding is being used for the post-DES timeframe in general. On the contrary, it's used only for books that are actually about the Typhon Pact. It really is as simple as that.
I think he's saying they should all be branded in some form, not that they are.
