The problem here is that "Crucible" wasn't meant to fit with established continuity, we were told this going into to it.
Star Trek readers who visit BBSs regularly were told this. A tiny percentage. Casual readers just bought 'em and read 'em.
Wasn't it stated in the introduction to Crucible: McCoy?

No problem. Typed it up quick from my work-in-progress site. Getting really close to publishing. Can't wait for everyone to see.

You forgot three New Frontier books on that list: the Starfleet Academy books with Worf that feature Soleta, Tanya Tobias, Zak Kebron and Mark McHenry that take place about 4-6 years before Encounter At Farpoint.

Re: New Frontier?

Um wow no more NF i have only read the first few but they were really good but then again i like everything Peter David writes in the trek-verse so if he not doing any more NF and not under contract dose that mean we will not get any more Peter David Star trek novels at all.
as for The IFM i have not gotten to it yet just started Typhon Pact i am starting to think that may be i should not read it at all so not to get stuck with the continuity problems would this make the the next lot of Typhon pact books harder to follow or easier?

It seems that PAD has had a falling out, of sorts, with the current editor, but PAD is also in recovery following a stroke, so getting well again is #1 on his agenda at present.

PAD doesn't write ST books without a contract, so until the editor hears a pitch he likes...

It's referenced in at least one other book so it is still in continuity, even if you have to fill in the gaps yourself about how some developments were resolved to get back to where the other books pick up.

It's pretty dumb how things were handled by the editor...

What are you basing that on? PAD has worked with Ed Schlesinger on all his post-Ordover New Frontier books.

Re: New Frontier?

Yeah, to me it seems more that Schlesinger has decided to cut down both the roster of regular authors and of the series, and PAD and NF (and some other people) ended up on "wrong side" of the cut.

No falling out, just an ediorial decision (and bad business manners by Schlesinger by simply ignoring authors he doesn't want to work with anymore).

Not necessarily. There could've been a contract involved that specified that Peter David had to write "X" number of novels, and Schlesinger had to go along with, at least til the contract ran out.

^That was the impression I got from second hand comments people have posted on here. It sounds like he finished all of the book on the last contract, and they never set up a new one.

I'm aware of that.

PAD's blogs (and KRAD's) have mentioned frustrations with not being able to make pitches, not hearing back from Pocket and no contracts being offered to them. Of course, they are also being professional in not stating in print exactly what's going on.

Or maybe I just dreamed it.

If that's not a falling out "of some kind", then it's at least a stalemate, or a failure to communicate, from somewhere. It seems weird when you know that Ed once worked so closely with PAD, on lots of NF and his original fiction - and that KRAD did some editorial work on "No Limits", IIRC.

On PAD's blog, he has explained how he had a few three-book contracts with Pocket but the last NF was a two-book contract. He was told there wouldn't be a new NF contract till figures were in for the most recent book - and no one at Pocket has supposedly said anything to him since. But he and Ed have had a long author/editor collaboration going at Pocket.

Re: New Frontier?

I would love to see one last New Frontier book. That series has been pretty much the only Trek books I've bought in the last decade. I'd read that he was working on the belated second part of his original fantasy trilogy though, and no doubt recovering from his stroke would be his primary focus at the moment.
