I don't remember for sure, but I think when I read it I remember people complaining about how they thought that bringing in so many of the different AIs and characters from other parts of the franchise was a case of small universe syndrome.
Yep. The complaints came from TNG fans who had little knowledge of TOS. As mentioned in my first post in this thread, despite the fact that Memory Alpha is a very convenient source of quick research, some TNG fans were scathing that the novel didn't contain footnotes to all of the TOS and "Questor Tapes" references, or a dramatis personae with the full cast explained.
Memory Alpha did not yet exist in 2002. And I doubt that anyone was really asking for footnotes.
