What's The Fall series? I've tried googling it and I guess I missed the announcement.

Recent developments in lit may offer some new avenues for setting White Blue's system restore point and getting him a Windows 8 upgrade...
It looks like he was running Vista. I don't think it will upgrade !
Heh.

Not to mention that the Voyager novels are still only up to the fall of 2381, and the main Alpha-Quadrant 24th-century continuity is up to 2384.
Just hope Voyager doesn't end up doing a time jump like DS9 did just so it can catch back up with the other 24th century books!

Actually, from where the last book left off, a time jump for Voyager wouldn't be a *terrible* thing. At least, it wouldn't be as mind-numbingly frustrating as it was for DS9.

Agreed. Given the way things ended in The Eternal Tide, a small jump forward in time wouldn't be a huge deal. I wouldn't want several years to pass between novels, but a few months certainly would not disrupt the story. There aren't any dramatic cliffhangers or on-going plot threads that would be severely disrupted by a small jump forward.

Re: Titan and The Fall news

A months long jump would actually seem to make sense. Several years ahead the "Litverse present" would probably just serve to disrupt the story.

I'd really hate a jump forward for VOY. For once I'd really love to see the consequences of events. I'd like to see Janeway dealing with what happened to her and the rest of the crew adjusting to her return. Not to mention that VOY right now's the only series in the 24th century that isn't dealing with the Typhon Pact - since I haven't read any of those books so far, that matters quite a great deal to me.

Re: Titan and The Fall news

I, for one, hope that Voyager stays with it's current pace if it's needed, but i also wouldn't mind a minor time jump. Moving the story to 2382 or 2383 can be done in the way books like Rough Beasts of Empire did, or episodes like Year of Hell depicted a whole year. It's easily done through an anthology as well. There are several different options at their disposal. As always, as long as the stories stay strong, I'll keep coming back.

I wouldn't mind a jump in Voyager, but it depends on HOW they handle it. The DS9-jump itself wasn't a big issue for me in itself, the issue was that they never bothered to tell the damned story!!

So, a second Full Circle-style novel for Voyager would work, where some of the events that happened in those years are told in a flashback sort of way, half of the book in 2384, the other half telling us what happened during those years.
