So I've been reading the books surrounding Nemesis and I really love how it feels like a single running storyline that's important to the characters and the universe. Back in the day when the shows were airing the novels were standalone out of necessity but I love how it's one big saga now.
I read "Death In Winter" then I went onto "Articles of Federation", but a few pages into it I found out I missed something vitally important in the first Titan novel, so I had to go back and read that!
Reading Articles of the Federation... really makes me wanna go back and watch The West Wing again
I'm almost tempted to re-read the Destiny trilogy right away, now that I actually know who all the people in it are!
