You mean aside from Picard reporting to an Admiral who is also his BFF? I doubt there will be many ramifications.
Doesn't Riker's promotion mean the end of Star Trek: Titan?
I must say this worries me. Titan is my favorite 24th century series, and I wouldn't be interested in it without Riker and Troi aboard.

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

In the other thread on this topic somebody did bring up the fact that we are getting the Titan e-book Absent Enemies after The Fall ends. I can't remember if it anyone has said if it takes place before or after The Fall, but it does mean that the series most likely won't be ending with The Poisoned Chalice.

Absent Enemies does indeed take place after the events of The Poisoned Chalice and The Fall.

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

The fall series is amazing. I wish each author was doing 2 books and we could have a 10 part extravaganza.

Not necessarily. DS9 didn't end when Sisko or Kira left the station (though Sisko's around quite a bit anyway), so why would Titan end because Riker's moved up in rank? I agree with those who see Riker taking the vessel as his flagship (much as Kirk did during TWOK and Riker himself did during "All Good Things...") and remaining in command of the vessel until a permanent replacement can be found. OTOH, why not have Vale move up and take the center seat? Or maybe this is finally the opportunity for Worf to have a command of his own?

--Sran
I'm kind of expecting Worf to get Enterprise when Picard quits to become a Federation Ambassador.

If we lose Will to the Admiralty, can we have Tom back ?

Do you know if we'll ever get any kind of an official description for this one? They never did one for The Stuff of Dreams.

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

It could possibly be to wrap up the Titan series - at least in it's current format.

I'm wondering if they are going to adhere to the Countdown comics and have Data as Captain.

It's my favorite too, and while I'd miss Riker without it, I'd give it a chance *if* it continues its "Strange New Worlds" format.

The Data in the novels is different from the STO/Countdown Data (one is B-4, the other is a much more advanced and human-looking android with priorities outside of SF)

There are also innumerable other differences between the novelverse and Countdown. I did enjoy Countdown, but I'd like to see the novels tell a different version of the supernova events.

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

I don't have a problem with Data 2.0 returning to Starfleet eventually, but I doubt they would give him a command straight off, let alone Enterprise. If they did want to give a nod towards Countdown he could become Worf's first officer and act up to captain while Worf is on secondment. Data seems to have his own path for now though.

I'm more interested in Spock getting a LOT more attention in the near future - he's not going to be around for that long...

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

Well, I suppose that would be one way to keep him around !

I can't see the powers that be going to 'extraordinary lengths' to keep Spock in the novelverse though. After all, apart from in the Shatnerverse, Kirk is still dead...

Re: Major spoilers from upcoming Fall novels.

Is it just me that thinks it's odd that a relatively recent captain with his first proper command would be promoted over his former commanding officer and long standing captain of the flagship ?
