I believe that happens in Unity.

I believe it was Unity by S.D. Perry. Sisko and Kira on the cover. Kira in a SF uniform.

Are the Shatnerverse novels completely out of continuity with the main novel range, or are they sort of able to be squished into one continuity?
I generally prefer one main continuity for them. I really enjoyed that anniversary trilogy of TOS Gateway stories, whose name I forget, and I know they really didn't fit into the main continuity.

The first couple of trilogies seemed as though they could fit if you squinted a little, but the third trilogy overtly contradicted the rest of the novelverse in multiple respects, including the timing of Bajor's admission to the Federation and the events of the first year of Titan's mission. And both Ex Machina and Cold Equations: The Body Electric contradict what The Return alleged about V'Ger's origins and relation to the Borg.

That was Crucible. I think you mean the Guardian of Forever, since Gateways was an unrelated miniseries.

Yeah, Crucible. Sorry, that's what I meant. I loved Crucible to bits even if I forgot the title.
So has there been any hints in the main range that Kirk is alive, or is he really dead in the main range?

Kirk is presumed deceased in the main novel continuity. I suppose it's hard to prove a negative, though.

That's what I thought, that Kirk was supposed to be dead in the main range.
The early Shatner novels I thought were in the main range, and I kept squinting and making them fit as they went on, but I thought that by the end they probably did deviate enough that it just didn't work.
I bet somebody somewhere has a theory of how it can all work though

The first one, "The Ashes of Eden", was set comfortable within continuity and even had a comic adaptation. The second novel started to deviate and some authors cheekily started adding little references to Kirk being dead (and staying dead).

Re: *~Star Trek Books FAQ Latest Edition~*

This is really old, at this point. Might it be a good idea, if no one wants to take on the task of editing it, for someone to edit the first post to include links to 8of5's site (the flowchart linked in my signature) and http://startreklitverse.yolasite.com/ for his approach as well? Seems like the most commonly F-Aed-Qs are reading order or chronology related, and this thread doesn't address them really.

Good idea Thrawn. We do seem to be getting way less of those types of questions since our two projects became available though.

Yes indeed. But we also get a lot of threads where people ask and then we link them in the first couple of responses. I just figure, if I were trying to break in to TrekLit, I'd check the FAQ before I started posting, I'm shy that way.

I'd suggest un-pinning this one and starting a new FAQ thread. Or at the very least taking the "latest edition" off the thread title.

The new thread would address reading order (Thrawn's link), why there are no non-YA Abramsverse novels (not that we're sure exactly why), that the novels, comics and STO game all reside in separate continuities, that Countdown isn't part of the novelverse and why DS9 skipped several years.

Re: *~Star Trek Books FAQ 2009 Edition~*

I'll un-stick this one right now (and take of the latest edition tag). Then if someone else (who has the time to construct better sentences than me!) could start a new one, with the suggested links and topics, I'll stick that one.

Thanks for bringing up the idea, Thrawn
