Re: Star Trek Vanguard: In Tempest's wake by Dayton Ward
Notably if I remember things correctly the author did prefer for it to be seen as a TOS story, so the Vanguard labeling is possibly marketing's doing.
Yeah, he said that it was supposed to be changed to TOS at some point. Apparently someone must have changed their mind. I get the feeling that this isn't really meant to be the last Vanguard story so much as an epilogue that ties it into TOS a little more.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
