Re: Early TOS novels

^Yup. There's no real reason for that novel to be called The Heart of the Warrior, since it's not a Worf-centric novel at all. Clearly it was meant to be The Trojan Spaceship. But it was the first fourth-season DS9 novel to be published, so the marketing people probably wanted to play up that Worf was part of the cast now, and thus they changed the title to something Klingon-ish and stuck a big Worf head on the cover.

It was KRAD who assigned the titles for the miniseries.
That's interesting, it never occurred to me that anyone would name a story except its author. How often has that happened to you. Does it bother you when it happens or do you just see it as part of the job?
Mere Anarchy was one case where I chose the titles ahead of time, and they all came from William Butler Yeats's "The Second Coming" (one of my favorite poems) -- the six individual story titles and the overall title all came from Yeats. I did the same thing with Slings and Arrows, where all the titles came from the "To be or not to be" soliloquy from Hamlet.

Re: Early TOS novels

Well it's been years since I read The Heart Of The Warrior. All that I seem to remember is that, at the time I read it, it felt like a remake of the Season 6 arc where the crew use the Dominion ship to get behind enemy lines.
