Typhon Pact Reading Order

Hey all, I know there has been some discussion of this before, but I don't remember quite where, so I figured new thread is easiest. I'm just getting to the Typhon Pact series now in my read through, what are people's suggestions for the best order to read them in (spoiler free of course)? I'm also making my way through Voyager as well, and I saw from The Almighty Flow Chart that there's some character/background stuff that flows from Paths of Disharmony into Protectors, how important is it to read PoD before Protectors? If it's not particularly important I may try to knock out Voyager first.

I don't understand how Paths of Disharmony, which takes place in October 2382, could lead into Protectors, which takes place in the closing months of 2381. If there is any interconnection, it must just be background elements.

Re: Typhon Pact Reading Order

Christohper is correct. I don't see anything in Protectors that connects to Paths of Disharmony. Plus, Protectors and Acts of Contrition don't even mention the Typhon Pact except in the historian's notes.

Re: Typhon Pact Reading Order

I would imagine the link between Voyager and Paths of Disharmony is the spoiler for the big event in Paths of Disharmony that is given in The Eternal Tide. Thats why I placed the newer Voyager novels out of exact chronological order in my Simple Post Nemesis Reading List on my site, though I can't speak for 8of5 or Thrawn.

Re: Typhon Pact Reading Order

I think the connection is actually to The Eternal Tide, and it involves some time travel - essentially, if you don't want the end of Paths of Disharmony spoiled, read it before The Eternal Tide.

ETA: ryan123450 beat me to it.

Yes. There's a bit in Eternal Tide where events in the future are mentioned, and it spoils the end of Paths of Disharmony.

As to your original question, probably:

Rough Beasts of Empire
Zero Sum Game
Seize the Fire
Paths of Disharmony
eBook - The Struggle Within
Plagues of Night
Raise the Dawn
Brinkmanship

Is it better to read these in order of chronology or publication?

For the first four, it doesn't really matter, since they're all standalones whose events are unrelated aside from all involving members of the Pact. But publication order is probably best all around.

There hasn't been a release date announced for this title yet, but it looks to be a MMPB release, not an e-book novella.

Although, The Struggle Within, while part of the reading order, doesn't add a whole lot to the overall story, as the Kinshaya in the other books (and even as late as Disavowed ) don't play much of a role, more or less just getting a mention as being apart of the Typhon Pact, as their space is nowhere near Federation territory, so aside from the ebook, the Kinshaya have not been major players in the story line. With the Typhon Pact the major players are the Romulans, Breen and Tzenkethi, who are in Rough Beasts of Empire, Zero Sum Game, Plagues of Night, Raise The Dawn & Brinkmanship. The Gorn do appear in Seize The Fire, but aside from that book, their role is reduced to a minor part of the Typhon Pact story, along with the Tholians who appear in Paths of Disharmony.

It's not a Typhon Pact book, but the Gorn do play a pretty big role in the second TNG Cold Equations book, Silent Weapons. Well, at least in the beginning, I'm not real far yet, but they've been playing a pretty big part so far.
