There is already such a lot of cultural 'carry forward' that they can't really go off on a tangent. Besides which, Trek was supposed to show how WE had progressed.

A bit leeway now saves a lot of head scratching later...
Although it's neither cannon nor even hinted at, a twisted part of me always liked to think that the 'mirror universe' was our universe.
Didn't see the ENT credits with the mirror Neil Armstrong planting the Terran Empire flag on the moon?
Yeah, but that was years after I had that idea. Like I said, I know the idea wasn't cannon.

The Rings of Time by Greg Cox
I just checked, fairly new publication. I wasn't aware. Many thanks for the tip.
All I can say is this is the best book I've read in a long time. I lost my original copy on the bus and finally broke down and recently rebought it on the Kindle.

Glad I did. Outstanding novel.

I hate when things like that happen. But then I take solace in the idea that maybe someone stumbled across it and is now as in love with Star Trek novels as I am!

Wow! Thanks so much for the kind words.

I'd been wanting to do something with Shaun Christopher for year. I'm glad I finally got to do that book!

I'd like to read all the details about humanity's first contact with Deltans.
I established in Watching the Clock that the story Travis Mayweather told in "Bound" about his family's freighter rescuing a stranded Deltan ship was humanity's first contact with the species.

However, that doesn't rule out the possibility of exploring further early contacts with Delta if I get to do more Rise of the Federation books.
I got the impression The Mirrorball Man was thinking in rather more... salacious... terms than that.

But I suppose it could still be called Rise of the Federation...
