Those books were the worst.
At least it was appropriate for the Mirror Universe, because apparently every woman was bisexual there.

I believe the Voyager one is pre-TV series.
Right. Both it and the VGR installment of the similar The Brave and the Bold crossover duology are crammed into the brief period between Janeway getting command of Voyager and the ship getting lost in the Badlands. (I believe the B&tB one is chronologically first.)
Yeah, B&tB was first because it was Tuvok infiltrating the Maquis several weeks to a month before the events of Caretaker, then Badlands was Voyager leaving DS9 and getting to the Badlands before getting wisked away. IIRC, Evek committed suicide in Badlands, but I don't know if the rest of Trek Lit ever mentioned that.

Re: STAR TREK BADLANDS

^Evek is still alive post-DS9 in A Stitch in Time, so The Badlands evidently doesn't fit into the main novel continuity.

And yes, Dark Passions is the only Susan Wright Trek work I know of with multiple bisexual female characters. Wright did pioneer the portrayal of LGBT relationships in Trek Lit with Jayme and Starsha in The Best and the Brightest, though back then it had to be kept subtle and implicit; but I can't recall any instances in Wright's other Trek Lit. Although of course many other authors of various genders and orientations have included LGBT characters and couples in their work since then, which is just a natural part of representing human diversity as Star Trek is supposed to do.
