Re: The Almighty Star Trek Lit-verse Reading Order Flow Chart Mark III

I'm a regular io9 reader, but they've just upgraded their software again and now it isn't getting along with my Opera 12 browser. And I don't want to upgrade Opera because apparently the newer versions have bizarrely stripped out a lot of the functionality of the old ones.

And is No Time Like the Past going to be added to the chart?

Re: The Almighty Star Trek Lit-verse Reading Order Flow Chart Mark III

No. It's not connected to the ongoing continuity in any way.

There are a ton of crossovers that aren't in the crossover column - Invasion, Federation, No Time Like the Past - because it isn't trying to be all-encompassing. It's trying to indicate connections that might otherwise be difficult for a reader to determine.

Anyone looking at that novel on amazon is going to see that it's a standalone crossover featuring Seven of Nine. Anyone looking at Typhon Pact: Seize The Fire isn't, for instance, going to know that it takes place between Synthesis and Fallen Gods. So that information is on the flowchart.

Now, if the next Beyer Voyager novel has a long speech from Seven about this one time she met Jim Kirk - yes, we would add No Time Like the Past.

The new version of the chart is awesome. Thanks for the work. And congrats on the io9 article. I like io9 a lot and think it's cool they are bringing attention to another site I like a lot.

I think publiusr meant ships belonging to classes we haven't already seen, like members of the Voyager slipstream fleet.

I would like to see those as well. Good catch Christopher, as usual!

Re: The Almighty Star Trek Lit-verse Reading Order Flow Chart Mark III

So I've finished destiny, ds9 and the post destiny novels. Starting on the typhon pact.

The chart says that zero sum game is before rough beasts of empire, however zsg is typhon pact 1, and rbe is number 3

Losing the peace has a scene with seven on earth about the Borg and their continued existence, should there be a connection into full circle?

Is there really nothing between soul key, losing the peace and singular destiny until zero sum game? Bashir's opening chapter had a heck of a lot of changes to DS9, and suddenly there's been a long Cold War going on with a group that only formed in the closing chapters of post-destiny. (I haven't read post destiny Titan yet, trio annoys me too much)

I think you mean the chart says it's after RBoE. The books weren't published in chronological order. RBoE takes place earlier than the rest. The first four TP novels were standalones around a common theme, not consecutive parts of a single story, so their order doesn't matter that much.

Yes, there is a big gap in the DS9 narrative that hasn't been filled in yet. There was a change of editors a few years ago and it was decided to bring DS9 forward in time so it could cross over with other series.

However, "Reservoir Ferengi" in the Seven Deadly Sins anthology focuses on Brunt and Gaila and spans the first year of the DS9 gap.

So I'm about right here in my read as well. Just finished Singular Destiny, reading Full Circle now. So I get that since they are stand alone, there isn't that big of a deal either way, but given the option, would you recommend reading in published order or reading RBoE first?

RBoE first, then ZSG, I think. Read Paths of Disharmony after those two, and it doesn't matter where Seize The Fire fits in.
