Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I am sucker for books with annotations. If i want to read Warpath can i get into it without reading to many other books set before that featuring teh books main characters? Is there a lot of followup to Warpath in other book or comics?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

It does follow up a cliffhanger from the third worlds of DS9 story, and sets up some events that are followed up on in the following DS9 books, and the books in another series. But, if you want you could still probably read it by itself, it just won't have quite the impact as it would if you'd read the events leading into, and continue the story into the next books.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

It would be like the first Star Trek movie or episode you ever watched was The Search For Spock. It would be good, but no were near as good as it could be.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

The first three Vanguard books are annotated (Harbinger, Summon The Thunder, Reap The Whirlwind), and assuming you read them in order they don't require any other novels to understand. Plus they're totally badass.

Section 31: Rogue stands alone, but it's not especially great as a novel. Not bad but not noteworthy.

Sword Of Damocles, the fourth Titan novel, also stands alone reasonably well. There aren't too many ongoing stories through the Titan novels. You mention Bennett, though, so there's a chance you've read Orion's Hounds (book 3) anyway. If you haven't read Titan at all, just start with Orion's Hounds; the first two are kind of a side-story, and book 3 gets the series really going.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I have read most of Vanguard. I give Rogue a chance, Does Sword of Damocles has page by page annotations somewhere? I could not find it.

Not page by page, no, but he does have some notes about writing it if you click on the links labelled "one" through "four" on the right on this site: http://damoclesannotated.blogspot.com/

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

It might do, afterall the Section 31 book has Picard as main character and the Titan books have a brand new cast.

Was The Best and the Brightest contradicted by any other books or comics?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Blood Will Tell references the Quch'Ha name for the altered Klingons from the Lit-verse.

The credit for coining QuchHa' goes to the Klingon Language Institute and its head Dr. Lawrence M. Schoen. Both the novels and Blood Will Tell consulted the KLI for that terminology, though I gather it was coined for Vanguard: Summon the Thunder first.
