Re: Into Darkness and the novelverse [SPOILERS]
Deneva and V'Ger already been addressed in the comics. I haven't read any of them myself, but I'm pretty sure I've seen references to V'Ger being in the Nero comic series, which covers what Nero was up to between the opening of the movie and the main story. They did an adaptation of Operation: Annihilate as the 5th and 6th issue of the new ongoing comics series.
