Re: To read next: Voyager, New Frontier, or Typhon Pact

^As a general rule, Trek books are not written so that you have to read them all in a particular order to understand them. If that were the case, there'd be no point in having different subseries. Each series is meant to stand on its own, with references to other series just being bonuses or easter eggs. Indeed, for the most part, each individual book is meant to be comprehensible on its own. Anything relevant from earlier books or other series will be explained in the book itself.

In a multiseries crossover like Typhon Pact, generally the books' links to their own respective series are stronger than their links to one another. Destiny is the one real exception to that to date, although I'm not sure about the upcoming The Fall. The most recent Titan novel, Fallen Gods, is a followup to events in Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony, but even there, you could probably follow the story well enough just by reading the TTN installments.
