Re: The Neutral Zone, end of the Family unit?
I love what the novels have done with Ralph Offenhouse, actually:
He is now a Federation politician. At first he was ambassador to the Ferengi - which makes perfect sense for him - and now he's the Secretary of Commerce.
So it looks like he put his financial wizardry to good use after all!
