Do you think he could go straight from Destiny to Cold Equations, as someone that doesn't care very much about continuity as long as he can recognize most of the characters, and not be lost?
I'd say he almost certainly could. If he read and enjoyed Destiny without having read the Titan books or Greater Than the Sum, etc, then reading Cold Equations without having read Immortal Coil or (for the second book) the Typhon Pact stories shouldn't be an issue. Most of the focus is on characters he'll know from TV or else met in Destiny anyway.

If he knows Data and the backstory with Data's family, then everything should be more than fine. For the second book, the Typhon Pact might need explaining, but that will take about 30 seconds, I'm sure.
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
