At the Prophet's Door - new DRGIII TNG novel?

A new entry has appeared in the Pocket Books catalog -

http://catalog.simonandschuster.com/...=&find=trek&a=

TNG novel, from DRGIII, to be released as the June 2012 novel, no blurb or other details. Is this the first part of his 2012 duology - previously announced with the titles given as Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn - or another novel from him?

That has to be the first part of the duology. And, as I predicted, given that title, is going to have a LOT to do with DS9.

Oh please dear God, let this be true. I was hoping his two new novels would focus more on DS9, and even after the announcement that they would be a Typhon Pact two-parter I held on to that hope. If this title is true, it can only involve DS9 quite a lot!!

Well, not necessarily. For example, Orion's Hounds had nothing to do with the Orions.

I'm cautiously optimistic. My mind is buzzing with possible story ideas I know I can't post!

In my mind, it is very true!

Ofcourse it's possible it will have nothing to do with DS9, but I for one truly hopes it does. Most DS9 fans agree that Pocket has been treating the DS9 universe poorly lately, favoring TOS, TNG and VOY. Sure, DS9 characters were used in other novels blablabla, but DS9 fans have been waiting for a full one, proper DS9 novel ever since Soul Key. So, here's hoping!!!

Re: At the Prophet's Door - new DRGIII TNG novel?

Did DRGIII explicitly say he was writing a DS9-focused two-parter?

The details he gave after Shore Leave were as follows, and I quote:

DRGIII on Facebook wrote:
http://www.facebook.com/justin.marsh...50234507481493

• will be a two-book series
• will be published sometime in 2012
• will follow up on the TYPHON PACT novels
• may include NEXT GENERATION characters
• may include DEEP SPACE NINE characters
• may include VOYAGER characters
• may include Cardassians
• may include the Gamma Quadrant
• may include the Delta Quadrant

[...] Starfleet and the Federation must deal with the aftermaths of both David Mack's DESTINY trilogy and Dayton Ward's PATHS OF DISHARMONY, and that perhaps circumstances will push them to consider actions that they might not otherwise have taken.

The working titles of the two novels [...] are PLAGUES OF NIGHT and RAISE THE DAWN.

No, nothing is known expect that it will deal with the Typhon Pact and the two titels stated on Memory Beta.

"Cover is NOT final" - you mean, DRG3 won't be on the front cover?

Yeah, that cracked me up. If you look at the Destiny omnibus, it has a picture of D-Mack with the same "Cover is not final" text. To which I found no end of amusement.

I really hope this is 'Full Circle'-esque DS9 tale that sets a new direction for DS9 and fills in the gap with flashbacks well enough for us to move on to the future.

EDIT: Just saw Ryan123450's post: Well, since it is apparently being marked TNG, it probably won't be that heavily focused on DS9.


Hmmm, I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed that this does involve more than a few DS9 elements.

Isnt the current ship's counselor on Ent-E a Bajoran? Maybe DRG3 will delve a little into his story here?
