At some point, it kinda feels like the Pocket Books folks are doing everything possible to go in a different direction from the background info from Star Trek Online, doesn't it? I mean I don't mind it, but it seems almost deliberate at this point.
Rather, when Star Trek Online was created in 2009-10, its creators deliberately chose to contradict the direction the novels had already been going in for years. It borrowed some ideas and characters from the novels, like Titan and President Bacco, but it disregarded most of the DS9 post-finale series, the events of Destiny and the surrounding books, the novels' prior portrayals of races like Species 8472, and so on. STO chose to be a separate continuity from the start, and it and the novels have both been charting their own independent courses.
