Typhon Pact/TNG timeline

Just curious, as I'm getting back into Trek novels, how do the TNG and Typhon Pact novels intersect?

I've read up to Indistinguishable From Magic, and have read up until Plagues of Night in the Typhon Pact series.

Can anyone point me in the direction of how to continue?

Also, have they abandon the DS9 series?

Thanks!

The blurb at the front of Typhon Pact/Zero Sum Game says it's 3 years after the events in Nemesis.

The story from Plagues of Night concludes in Raise the Dawn, then the next TNG/Aventine novel is Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship, followed by the TNG Cold Equations trilogy.

You're already quite near the leading edge of the novel continuity, but you might find the reading order flow chart created by Thrawn and myself useful to navigate your way between the various series.

And as you should know if you've read Plagues of Night, DS9 is still very much continuing!

We've also got another DS9 focused novel coming out at the end of the year, in the form of the first book in the new post-Typhon Pact miniseries, The Fall: Revelations and Dust.

And if you want more DS9 then keep buying and voicing your support for it! The Fall will have DS9 stories as well as threads in each of the books so lets make sure Pocket knows we support more DS9 stories with our pocketbooks!

That is awesome! David said, when we talked to him on Literary Treks, that the reason he put the Accendants in the book was to keep them at the forefront of people's minds so that hopefully that story can be fully told!

Lets hope the sales of his latest DS9 books and The Fall sell very well so that Pocket will give us more!

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG timeline

Are there going to be more books in the novel timeline after the Fall? Are they going to embrace stories from other sources like Data in charge of the Enterprise-E, the destruction of Romulus, and Bacco only serving one term? I'm buying and enjoying everything in the novel timelines and will continue to do so.

No reason why there wouldn't be.

The destruction of Romulus is canonical, so presumably the books will have to stay consistent with it. The other things you mention are from other tie-ins and thus the novels aren't obligated to follow them. Usually different tie-in companies have gone their own separate routes; overlaps have occasionally happened, but they're the exception, not the rule.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG timeline

Haven't things already diverged pretty far from what was established in the lead up to STO? I'm not 100% up to date on either one, but that is the impression I've gotten from previous conversations here.

Re: Typhon Pact/TNG timeline

Yep. Trek lit has made some big changes, blown up things, razed planets and killed off characters that are still a part of STO's world.

That said, the novels may incorporate a few of STO's ideas (IIRC, one of their Klingon ship classes cropped up in Zero Sum Game), like STO borrowed characters and events from the novelverse.

Since STO borrowed Bacco, I'm wondering if the novels will borrow Okeg. Will it be him running against Bacco in the upcoming election? We'll see!

Actually they were divergent from the start. While STO's "Path to 2409" did crib a few ideas and characters from the novels, it also ignored/contradicted most of the events of the DS9 Relaunch, the Titan novels to that point, and Articles of the Federation. There was never a point at which Pocket and STO had compatible continuities, nor was there ever intended to be.
