Well, that doesn't make any sense. Pocket Trek has never been limited to publishing tales in only one all-encompassing continuity. Even during the current era when there's one primary novel continuity, there have still been other books that stood apart from it, like the Shatner novels, the Crucible
trilogy, and The Children of Kings
. Cross Cult has already published Crucible
, not to mention translations of the 2009 movie novelization and a couple of the Abramsverse Starfleet Academy
books. They haven't limited themselves to a single book continuity in the past, so why start now?
