Re: The Continuity of Days Gone By

As I discussed before, I made this list to reflect the continuity as it would've been seen in the '80s, before TNG came along and changed things. The idea was to offer a glimpse at a period of history, to try to codify an old interpretation of Trek continuity which has since been superseded.

Swordhunt and The Empty Chair came later and retconned some TNG-era ideas into the Duaneverse, so they represent a different era's take on the continuity. After all, the revised versions of the earlier novels as found in The Bloodwing Voyages retcon them to be post-TMP rather than in the conjectural "second five-year mission" implied to exist in the original version of the books. Swordhunt claims to begin two months after The Romulan Way, but is also after Spock's World, so that definitely conflicts with the '80s version of the continuity I tried to reconstruct above.
