I think we're not that close to seeing much of the Hirogen yet, but I'd love to see the Fen Domar.
In the novel The Needs of the Many the Hirogen have already reached the Beta Quadrant proper and later ally with Empress Sela. They've been nomadic for so long that they don't even remember having a homeworld. They could be anywhere in the galaxy by now.
Good point, I had forgotten both about their alliance and their nomadic nature.

That said, of course, TNotM is definitely is an alternative timeline, and I don't particularly see a need for too much creative cross-pollination between the two. (Lol, I just saw your post in the other thread where you use the same phrase! Ha! That was totally unintentional.) I mean, I don't mind it, but it seems to me that we don't need the same story told twice, and I would just as soon get two highly disparate interpretations of the post-Nemesis Trekverse.

And, truth be told, I don't find the prospect of Hirogen stories particularly exciting. But I'm sure I could be convinced otherwise.

It would make sense for the Federation to eventually make peace with its current neighbors and move on to new ones.
Yes! But that's probably stuff for the TrekLit productions when we come into the 25th and 26th centuries.
Mm, depending on the direction they go in, I could see it happening sooner. But yeah, probably a ways off.
