Re: Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn conclusion of the first TP a

^Okay, yeah, in the sense that it's just the background of the world in which the stories take place. Perhaps "premise" is the equivalent in non-RPG terms. Just as the premise of DS9 included a recovering Bajor, a hostile Cardassia, the strategically important wormhole and its inhabitants, and the unknowns (and eventually known hostiles) of the Gamma Quadrant, so the premise of the post-Destiny novels includes the Typhon Pact, the Khitomer Accords, the general political instability and reorganization of the post-invasion quadrant, the potentially destabilizing factor of slipstream drive, and the ongoing recovery, rebuilding, and resettlement efforts of various powers.
