In the novels, the Federation President... is established to be a male Bolian named Min Zife.
If they don't accept script notations and screenwriter's intent, they won't even contemplate tie-in novels.
Why should I?
You don't have to. But I for one see no reason not to. They're good books, for one thing.

Why would I trust your interpretation of a factoid from a novel based on an author's intent that you might have misconstrued?
I'm not sure to what you're referring. The novels -- including A Time to Kill by David Mack and Articles of the Federation by Keith R.A. DeCandido -- are very explicit in referring to Min Zife as the President of the United Federation during the Dominion War and just before NEM, and in establishing that Bolarus is a Federation Member (and that Zife was the Federation Councillor from Bolarus before being elected President). These aren't matters of interpretation; this is just what the books say.


But, hey, don't just take my word for it. Go ahead and read the books!
