Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

Subspace shortcuts are being added to the UFP databases regularly, after all. Right along with stars, planets, nebulae, star clusters (open and globular), and so on...

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

Fallen Gods is 2382 and The Fall is in 2385, no? Anything could've happened in that time. I was surprised reading 'Ceremony of Losses' and seeing Shar had been working the problem on Andor for a LOT longer than I thought it'd been.

I'm sure if you ask the Guardian of Forever nicely, he'll time-jump you.

Has there been any indication of the GOF being able to send beings to, or observe,the future?

In a few weeks the GoF could send a copy back to now...

It's possible, but first you have to figure out how to get around the spoiler protection.

As long as you spoiler tag anything you learn until 6 months after it happens...

For the record, the starship Aventine has appeared in the following novels:

- Destiny: Gods of Night (2381)
- Destiny: Mere Mortals (2381)
- Destiny: Lost Souls (2381)
- A Singular Destiny (2381)
- Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game (2382)
- Brinkmanship (2383)
- The Fall: Revelation and Dust (2385)
- The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses (2385)

In other words, the Aventine has only appeared in a handful of novels and we've only seen a very few of her missions.

I think Riker will wind up stepping back into the command chair. I don't see the status quo getting disrupted.
Have you met the Novelverse?
Haha true. But for "established" characters it seems a little trickier to stick. I mean, if Trip, Data, and Janeway have all died and been "resurrected" (through various plot twists, changes, etc.), then it's a little easier to believe something like Riker being an admiral is only a short-term development. Or look at Geordi's "I'm a captain... now I'm not..." development.

To be clear, I'm not knocking on any of the decisions to bring back those characters (I haven't read Data and Janeway's resurrection tales yet, though they're in my backlog)... okay, I didn't like what they did with Trip... but *conceptually*, well... maybe I'm a little jaded at the moment?

But hey, look at what they did with DS9 itself, so what do I know?

And Destiny, while 3 books, is one story and Singular destiny can easily be fitted as the epilogue to that story, and the Fall is one big story really, so it's just like four different occasions. so not much at all.

There needs to be an Aventine series!
