Titan question - Sariel Rager

A question about the character of Sariel Rager for the group mind...

As noted over at Memory Alpha -
In Death in Winter Rager continues serving on the Enterprise and later Enterprise-E as helmsman until the Battle of the Bassen Rift. After which, she is promoted to Lieutenant Commander and takes a post as second officer aboard the USS Hedderjin.
Contradictorily, the Star Trek: Titan book series, has Rager transferring to the USS Titan with Captain Riker, also after the battle of the Bassen Rift, although still a Lieutenant.
Has Rager's posting on either ship been confirmed in any book post-Death in Winter/Taking Wing?

Re: Titan question - Sariel Rager

Rager remains part of the Titan crew as a Lieutenant. This part of the DiW continuity has been overridden in the current shared TrekLit continuity.

Maybe there could be a NF type retcon done when Lefler was promoted, demoted and repromoted, or when Shelby thought she had been made captain but it was somebody else.

Re: Titan question - Sariel Rager

Is it my imagination, or are there numerous bits of Death in Winter which seem to have been sidelined or contradicted?

Can't think of any specifics right at this second.

The very brief Rager scene in DiW is the only part I can think of that raises any continuity issues, and it's easily fixed just by substituting someone else's name for Rager's.

Re: Titan question - Sariel Rager

Fair enough, it's been a long while since I read it. I just thought there were others, must be thinking of one of the two hundred plus books I've read since then.

Re: Titan question - Sariel Rager

Lol, nice one, Marco. But I meant an in-universe one like the explanations for Lefler and Shelby.

It was Roger Soriel who went to the Hedderjin; Picard was always getting those two confused...

Re: Titan question - Sariel Rager

Continuity goofs from DiW? Worf meets Janeway in this book, on the E-E.

In Resistance, it is written that Worf has never met Janeway at all. I believe it's when he's about to come up with his super saucer-separation/cloaking/speed-run plan.
