But I do fear (well, "fear" is perhaps a strong word for it ) Trek lit alienating new fans - I can imagine a casual fan, picking up a post-series novel and, saying "this isn't TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT!"
I think that's a fairly valid concern considering the turn Trek lit took with Destiny. Right up until the "A Time to..." books, almost everything felt like a logical progression from the end of DS9 and Voyager, then it felt like the Trek lit authors got a bit too
enthusiastic about shaking up the status quo (especially with David Mack providing more detonations than Star Trek into Darkness). It says a lot when Trek lit has more in common with the Star Wars EU than the canon material in terms of tone and general content.
