Re: IDW to publish post-Nemesis TNG Borg story, possibly Destiny

Was there anymore appearences by any new characters that were in Issue 1 by chance? I haven't really thought of buying the single issues because I usually prefere the graphic novel formal lately.

Lieutenant Archer appeared again. I'd have to re-read to check for others.

The second issue of this makes it pretty clear that this has no relationship to anything that has appeared in the books and highly divergent points are pretty clear (for example, the return of voyager is shown and what happens next is different from the books).

It is a bit of a crazy 'end of the world' book with some nice ideas and I must confess as an action-adventure romp it's pretty good.

It'd work for me as a movie. So far at least.

Re: IDW to publish post-Nemesis TNG Borg story, possibly Destiny

Finally got around to picking up and reading the second issue. I think the story keeps getting better. I was so glad about the twist at the end, which makes the new alien invaders more than a Species 8472 retread.

I hope we get more info on Lt. Archer. I was a little annoyed that she was named Kira. The Archer part didn't bother me, but certainly they could've picked another first name. I also was wondering/hoping that maybe Archer would be related to Valerie Archer from that VOY Species 8472 episode. But I guess not.

In any event, looking forward to where the story goes next.

One question though...



But that's minor nit picking.



But I totally agree with DarKush, the new reveals about the Voldranall made them more interesting to me. All in all I found issue 2 to still be a little below average but more enjoyable than issue 1, so I feel this series is improving and moving in the right direction.

Are STO novels considered canon to the rest of the novelverse?

No. Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many does include a chapter referencing the novelverse as an alternate reality in the same multiverse, but it was meant as an easter egg for novelverse fans and not a definitive statement. They're really just different stories written around the canon episodes and movies, and differ in ways that a STXI-style branch point in history can't believably explain - like the ancient Iconians of STO being completely different to the Iconians of the novelverse's Gateways series.

No such thing. "Canon" doesn't mean "continuity"; it means "the stuff made by the series' creators/owners," period. So the word only applies to film and television Trek productions, not to any licensed tie-ins. What the novels have is simply a continuity. And that continuity has never been meant to include every novel; the majority of novels in recent years have been part of it, but there have always been others that stood apart. The one and only STO novel, The Needs of the Many, was written to be part of the STO continuity, not the novelverse.
