Re: What is "The Fall"?

The more I read about this, the more excited I become. I'm really the digging the concept, especially after reading Dayton's blog about the novels intertwining not only on a story level, but characters intermixing aswell. Should be great!

Re: What is "The Fall"?

I wonder if A Ceremony of Losses will feature some of the DS9 characters as well?

Re: What is "The Fall"?

The "Fall" in question isn't Romulus, is it? We all know what eventually happens to it. Isn't it about time for the Hobus Supernova to go down?

As of the latest book we are in 2384, Hobus blew it's top in 2387.

This series is really looking fun, can't wait!

I've been wondering if the fall in question refers to Romulus, too...

Regardless, I'm very excited for this. Five novels, at the current edge of the timeline, with an interconnected plot, by five great authors, featuring Titan, DS9, TNG, and Garak as written by McCormack? This is brilliant. Now to survive half a year limited to 5-year-mission TOS stories....

^Not entirely limited to TOS stories. We've got the TNG eBook The Stuff of Dreams coming in April and Rise of the Federation coming in July.

No disrespect to the authors, just to the subject period, but it does seem like a very long stretch of rather uninspiring 5yr Mission TOS.

I am excited about your Rise Of The Federation though...
