Has there ever been a mention of the North Star 'colony' in ENT lit?

Just saw the episode yesterday, and I was wondering if anyone knew....

Re: Has there ever been a mention of the North Star 'colony' in ENT li

I haven't read all ENT novels yet. So far it hasn't turned up. If we go by what was proposed in the episode, Archer hoped United Earth would send a ship to return the Humans to Earth. But with the Skagarans around, turning it into an official colony would seem wiser.

Hm, would there be Skagarans in the Federation at the time of ROTF?

The only mention of Skagarans outside this single episode comes from a Star Trek Online mission, where Scotty complains about the Skagaran practise of putting an umbrella in their drinks. He ponders going to Skagara to tell them his mind. No mention of North Star colony, though.

Someday we should have a follow-up novel to each episode ever. That's what ST:SCE was for.

In The Good That Men Do, Trip and Malcolm are sampling some (presumably leftover) Skagaran whiskey, I believe.

Kind of a shame really. Just watched this one yesterday, like I said. And it actually more fun then I remembered. And it had potential for follow-up. Not a complete novel or anything, but some mentioning along the way in one of the novels.

It's not ENT material, but Christopher's TNG novel The Buried Age mentions that the reason Guinan was on Earth in the 1890s per "Time's Arrow" was because she was participating in a counter-Skagaran antislavery campaign.

Really? I don't recall that, but that's very cool!
