Federation is a fun read, and it's surprising that it was put out so close to Star Trek: First Contact (the hardcover came out in 94, then the paperback followed in 95, then the movie hit in 96), but it doesn't really fit any where any more.
How is it surprising? The writers of "First Contact" would have been almost oblivious to the existence of "Federation". Who knows, maybe mention of Cochrane around the traps got the movie team thinking?
I'm not sure how Moore and Braga glommed onto Cochrane as a character for First Contact after they decided against the Renaissance-set story with Leonardo da Vinci. However, we do know that Braga had no idea who Cochrane was and thought that Cochrane could be Picard's love interest.
