World War III was already covered in Federation. It may not fit with the TV/film continuity anymore, but it would be an almighty effort to top it quality-wise. Wanting another WWIII book just to tick some post-FC continuity porn boxes seems a little pointless to me.
Bizzarely enough, I started to read Federation yesterday, and Christopher is correct of course, the Cochrane scenes don't read like Star Trek at all, but as a lover of sci-fi in general, I found those scenes to be the best part of the book.
