I thought that the IDW comics didn't fit into the novel continuity. If the Alien Spotlight comics shed light on this continuity and even fit into it, why doesn't Countdown?
Firstly, the novels are not yet up to speed - the events of Countdown are still several years away.

Secondly, some novels include references that seem to prepare for Countdown, e.g.
- reunification of RSE
- La Forge is a Commander again.
- Worf's mishap during the Dominion War will no longer prevent his promotion (Picard weighed in).
- Picard considers retirement and ambassadorship to Vulcan.
