I guess you could say that the Day of Honor series is the "increasingly inaccurately named Hitchiker's Trilogy" of the Treklit universe...

Is it me, or are there some weird inconsistencies in the DS9 novel? Like both the Defiant and Kor's ship firing while cloaked?

Armageddon Sky was certainly a lot better then the TNG novel (forget the name already) but it had some odd moments. I sometimes felt there was some hinting towards Bashir being genetically engineered, but wasn't this novel written before that was revealed?

It came out about six months after the episode aired, so there might've been time to do some late revisions alluding to Bashir's genetic enhancements.

Re: Day Of Honour...

The TNG entry made me yearn for a Hornblower-esque series from Diane Carey. If she had written an historical Age of Fighting Sail series centered on the American Revolution, I'd have been there in a heartbeat.

Ah, makes sense then. I got the impression this novel was set during season 4, near the end perhaps, but that was only my impression.

Re: Day Of Honour...

^Yeah, it was set in the fourth season (the text says 3 months after "The Way of the Warrior," though I think it works better placed later in the season), but the timeframes of Trek novels that came out during the series often lagged behind the show by a year or more, because of the long lead time in writing a book. So it's not out of the question that someone writing a book set in one season would have knowledge of events from the subsequent season, or would come across that knowledge during the writing process and work it into revisions. For instance, just to pick an example off the top of my head, Q-in-Law is set between "Deja Q" and "Qpid," but was written after "Qpid" with knowledge of that episode's events -- in fact, the novel makes an attempt to justify Q's lines about Picard saving his life in his previous visit as being about itself instead of "Deja Q" (though I don't think it quite works).

And of course Bashir was genetically enhanced all along even if nobody knew it, so there's no reason a fourth-season book couldn't reference the fact in Bashir's own thoughts, say.
