Is it just me or do these sound like bookend series? One dealing with the rise of the Federation and the other dealing with its decline.
Given how quickly the recent novels have been moving up in the timeline towards 2387, I think it's far more likely that The Fall would be about the Hobus Supernova and the fall of Romulus than about the fall of the Federation.
That's possible too. But aren't we still about four years away? It would seem weird for DS9 to do another time skip.
It would, which is why I don't necessarily think The Fall will be about Romulus. But I think it's more likely to be about Romulus than the fall of the Federation.
