What is the loose Terran translation of that phrase, Therin?
That's the fun of it. We have no idea. It could be an equivalent of the Vulcan "Live long and prosper", but do Andorians want other sentient aliens to live long and prosper?

I've used "Thiptho lapth" ever since seeing it in the Goldsteins' book and I love that context can make it mean whatever readers interpret it to mean. When Marco sent me an advance manuscript of "Andor: Paradigm", I suggested including the phrase; he liked the idea, but it was too late (the manuscript was sitting in an In-tray at Simon & Schuster Sydney for a few weeks before they sent it on.). Heather Jarman had assumed the phrase was my own creation.

It means "Smurf."

A lot of early novels disregarded the animated series, probably due to the authors' unfamiliarity with it; this was before it was released on home video.
Yeah, the late Janet Kagan agreed with me that mentioning TAS's M'Ress, even in passing, might have strengthened the discussion of felinoids in "Uhura's Song" (she only mentioned McIntyre's Snarl), but she didn't have any familiarity with TAS.

Awesome chronological list, Christopher. More tidbits that will be useful for the TOS page of my site.

I think the Black Fleet was mentioned in (I think) Children of Kings.
Anyone know if this is right? I think this would be the only link to the novel continuity in The Children of Kings.

Thanks...I didn't know if it was like "Live long and prosper" or if it was more along the lines of "Employees are encouraged to wash hands after using toilet"...

I'm really glad that people are finding that thread of use. I was afraid that nobody would care. .
I for one have found your 'Charting the Novel-verse' thread extremely interesting and useful, Turtletrekker. I've actually mined it extensively already for a project I'm working on. Thank you so much for all the information. If I have your blessing, I'm working on a website that will list everything connected in the Lit-verse in chronological order, with notes, for each series, and then a seperate chronological list of the entrie Lit-verse. I got about 80% of my info from your work, so I'd love your ok before I publish my site. (The other 20% of the info is from hours of scouring Memory-Beta and a few other places on the web. I've found about 15 or 20 more connections than are in the 'Charting the Novel-verse' thread.)
Throw an acknowledgment my way and maybe a link to this thread, and we're golden.
Thanks for all your help everyone, especially Turtletrekker.
No Prob.

it's possible, because KRAD's reused the Black Fleet in his Klingon novels and it's sort of seeped into others, iirc.

Not the only link - Children of Kings builds on a tidbit from Spock's World, that the Orions are degenerate remnants of an ancient super-race.

Also, some elements of Vulcan's Glory are recycled (like Number One's backstory) but with a few minor details altered.

Re: The Continuity of Days Gone By

I've added Dreams of the Raven by Carmen Carter to my '80s-continuity list above, since I double-checked and found that there is a passing use of John M. Ford's Klingon naming convention in the first paragraph. I'd skimmed through the book's Klingon scenes and didn't notice any particular Fordisms, but I missed that first page.

Of course! I had planned on both of those things already.
