These elements were already used by other authors before the new editorial regime
Ed S. has been part of the "Star Trek" editorial team for many years. He edited numerous "New Frontier" novels while Marco was busy with DS9 and Margaret was concentrating on non fiction tie-ins.
For the record, Ed has been editing Star Trek novels since at least 2005. He took over editing my Khan books after John Ordover departed. So he's not exactly "new."
Yes, but he only recently reached the top of the 'food chain', gaining the authority to impose his vision on the 24th century trek lit continuity.

Has he? Is Ed the "Top of the Food Chain"?

It would be more accurate to say that he only within the last few years became the editor for all Star Trek lines. There's no really a "food chain" for him to be on top of -- it's just him.

Has any canon character ever been killed by a cannon?

No... though Worf did walk the plank.

Well, I haven't read them yet. I have them on my shelf and I'll get around to them eventually. So I appreciate the spoiler tags!
You came into a thread with (spoilers) in the tittle so if you get spoiled its your own fault.
