Hi, Turtletrekker. ZSG should actually be part of the 'primary core continuity' section because its final page blatantly states "The saga of Deep Space Nine will continue", a proclamation that is only included in novels which are part of the 'core' required reading list for the DS9-R.
I think a better reason would be that it's a Bashir story and he's a member of the core DS9 cast.
Maybe I'll just stick both ZSG (With Bashir/Ezri) and RBoE (With Sisko/Vaughn/Kira) in "Primary" and PoD (with Shar) and IFM (with Nog) in "Secondary".

^ That's what I would do. Seems like both of them are going to have to end up being pretty important to the next ongoing arc.

TOS edits are done. The rest should follow in short order.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

ADDENDUM TWO: Strange New Worlds

The Strange New Worlds series was an annual contest showcasing the best Star Trek short stories submitted by fans. The series ran for 10 years (1998-2007) and several contributors went on to become professional Trek authors themselves. Although none of the stories were actually commisioned for the "novel-verse", several contributors threw in novel-verse references anyway. Beyond that, several professional Trek authors have drawn on Strange New Worlds stories for background details in their own tales. Here is a list of SNW stories with novel-verse connections...

SNW II: "Gods, Fate, and Fractals" by William Leisner (Referenced in Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Watching the Clock)

SNW III: "Dorian's Diary" by G. Wood (Elements of Scotty's backstory used in The Future Begins.)

SNW III: "The Aliens are Coming" by Dayton Ward (Referenced in The Eugenics Wars.)

SNW IV: "Ancient History" by Robert J. Mendenhall (Elements of Scotty's backstory used in The Future Begins.)

SNW IV: "Bum Radish: Five Spins on a Turquoise Reindeer" by T. G. Theodore (Elements of Scotty's backstory used in The Future Begins.)

SNW VI: "The Human Factor" by Russ Crossley (Utilizes the death of Jack Crusher as established in Reunion. Also references Q-in-Law.)

SNW VII: "Full Circle" by Scott Pearson (Harriman backstory is from Serpents Among the Ruins. Also, elements of Scotty's backstory used in The Future Begins)

SNW 8: "Gumbo" by Amy Vincent (Utilizes Jake Sisko backstory established in Avatar book 2,)

SNW 9: "Terra Tonight" by Scott Pearson (Sequel to "Full Circle")

SNW 9: "Shattered Allies" by Emily P. Bloch (Utilizes elements of the post-finale DS9 books, but not entirely consistent with it.)

SNW 9: "The Last Tree on Ferenginar: A Ferengi Fable from the Future" by Mike McDevitt (Utilizes elements of the post-finale DS9 books, but not entirely consistent with it.)

SNW 9: "The Immortality Blues" by Marc Carlson (Utilizes elements of The Sundered and The Eugenics Wars.)

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

It's some years since I read it, but didn't Gumbo in SNW 08 had a loose connection to the DS9 Relaunch?

Yeah, as I recall, it depicted Jake contemplating an action which was implicitly or explicitly the one he undertook at the end of Avatar, Book 2.

Thanks to you both. I can get that in under the edit deadline.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Brilliant project, Turtletrekker.

I hope you can get this in under the deadline as well, but Indistinguishable from Magic also references The Genesis Wave novels (at least Books 1 & 2) with regards to the Federation recovering from it and

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Turtletrekker, I noticed something that I don't think you caught: Despite now being listed as part of the 'primary core continuity' for DS9, ZSG is also still listed in the 'Connected' section.

^ I actually did notice that, and it was the first thing I put into my notes for the next update. Thanks.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

No problem. BTW, I have some new suggestions for future updates:
* The TNG novels Dead Zone (Maximum Warp #2) and The Battle of Betazed and The Lost Era novels The Art of the Impossible and Serpents Among the Ruins ought to be mentioned/listed somewhere in the DS9 section because they feature appearances/cameos by DS9-R characters (Tiris Jast in Dead Zone and Vaugn in TBoB, TAotI, and SAtR)

* Mission Gamma: Lesser Evil and The Lost Era novel The Art of the Impossible ought to be mentioned/listed somewhere in the Vanguard section because they both feature or mention T'Prynn

I was also wondering if Ro's appearances in the TNG novel Rogue Saucer, the numbered DS9 novel Wrath of the Prophets, and the Dominion War miniseries novels were consistent with her characterization and post-Pre-emptive Strike character history as established by Avatar and the other books in the DS9-R, because if they are, they ought to be mentioned/listed somewhere in the DS9 section as well.

The Dominion War novels are not consistent with Avatar etc. As for the others, I don't recall any inconsistencies.
