^Yeah, STO has its own rather narrow set of priorities shaping how it develops its ideas. The books are able to be broader and more flexible, and don't have to interpret every race in terms of combat potential or whatever. I don't think Pocket and STO are deliberately trying to contradict each other. I know I'd never even heard of the "Elachi" until after I'd already written A Choice of Futures, and the STO folks certainly had no idea I would later write a book about the "Silent Enemy" aliens when they dubbed them Elachi. Pocket and STO are just operating in distinct spheres, developing ideas independently and with different priorities.
