Re: Hey, everyone! DRG's DS9 novel after Sacraments is called ASCENDA

In that article Margaret Clark is also quoted at saying "Because of what happened in The Fall, Starfleet told [Sisko] you can't go out and explore the Gamma Quadrant, we need you here. "
That's also big news and honestly exactly what I've been hoping for. I'd love to see him made an Admiral stationed at DS9 and using Robinson as his flagship. Anyway, that article is def worth a look and filled with lots of great gems!
Really excited about that title though, can't wait!

Oh yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But really, I'm getting annoyed that it's going to take this long to fill in the few-week gap of the 2013 novels Revelation and Dust and A Ceremony of Losses. And in the meantime we've gotten The Missing and Disavowed presumably set after Sacraments of Fire and Ascendance.

This is exactly what happened to me. I read it, thought "oh good we're getting the next one really soon", and then like an hour later I thought "Ascendance is a cool title too. Wait ASCENDANCE? ASCENDANCE?!" and started happy dancing.

If this is actually what we're all kinda assuming, then mere words are not sufficient, and I have to go with:



If, however, this is just a big tease because DRGIII knows what we would assume, and he is actually going to deliver something entirely different, then... well played, sir, well played.

Misdirection. I bet it's really about Kira climbing an epic flight of holy stairs on Bajor.

Since there isn't a separate thread, so we discuss anything from that article in this thread? Because, the news revealed there that has me excited is that Greg Cox's next TOS novel is set in the Pike era!

I noticed that too! I was going to skip it originally, as I believed it was a 5YM TOS story, but if it's a Pike era book about Spock (I assume with that title), then I'm in

Wait, are we assuming that this is going to somehow fill in the 'missing 5 years or so' after Soul Key - in which case

AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

But how does the "directly after Bacco's assassination" blurb lead us to think that Ascension might be 'Ascendants'?

I'm hopeful, but those blurbs seem to suggest possibly otherwise?

I've been saying the same thing about Sisko! I really hope this is the kind of thing they have in mind for him! Nice to see DS9 coming back in full force.

I thought the "directly after Bacco's assassination" line was in reference to Sacraments of Fire?

Yeah, it is but I guess the next words "the follow up" are throwing me - and the part where it says "Margaret revealed the books will be set quite shortly after The Fall and will pick up on many of the threads from that crossover event, and how the crew of the new DS9 react to the historic events."

That seems to suggest they'll both be set in the same time frame, just post-Bacco. Though I guess there could be flashbacks within that?

Inquiring minds want to know!
