DS9 Relaunch Timeline

This is a repost and update of a post in a prior thread. It attempts to place the relaunch and other associated novels in chronological order. Note that for the most part, it focuses on very tight links (i.e., "Cold Fusion" or use of relaunch-created characters like Vaughn and Jast) versus looser ones.

Special thanks to KRAD, od0_ital, David George, and others who helped point out my boo-boos. If anyone sees another mistake, post and I'll fix it if the edit time isn't up.

Re: DS9 Relaunch Timeline

Admittedly, I haven't read The Left Hand of Destiny yet (waiting for both parts to be out so I can read it straight through), but I'm thinking maybe it should come before The Lives of Dax (Ezri framing story) chronologically -- assuming you're taking the starting points of the stories as your base. From what I understand, TLHoD opens with Martok and Worf still on the way back to Qo'noS after having left the station toward the end of "What You Leave Behind." I would assume, therefore, that it's only a matter of days after the episode as the novel begins, though I also gather the story continues for some time after.

"'Second star to the right ...,'" however, opens at least two weeks after "WYLB," with its reference to Quark hiding out on Bajor for that long, and probably longer, since that event is mentioned in the context of summarizing various other events and changes on the station in the interim. So I'm thinking the story probably starts after TLHoD does, though it probably also ends well before the novel does.

Yup. I don't remember what right now; I think back in the original thread it said. (If it didn't have the same title, it was very similar; back in early March, I think.)

Actually, I'm thinking that, if the length of time for Hand Book One (a week or so) is the same for Book Two, then Lives should go after Hand. I'll move it there in a second, subject to change if applicable once Book Two comes out (and our friendly neighborhood moderator either changing it or somehow letting me back in).

Rising Son isn't *completely* independent of the others. The events of Gateways affect it somewhat.

Re: DS9 Relaunch Timeline

First of all, there's all the Lives of Dax stories, two of which take place after The Art of the Impossible (the Curzon and Jadzia stories).

n-Vector takes place prior to Diplomatic Implausibility.

I can see why you include Cold Wars, but there's no real need to have "Death After Life" on the list. ("The Other Side," at least, has appearances by the Defiant and its crew, including Vaughn, and Worf.)

Also, while I'm tickled by the inclusion, the Gorkon books aren't really connected to the relaunch, though they will be consistent with it.

Otherwise, looks okay to me.

Moderators: should this be stickied? It seems to come up every once in a while.

(edited 04/07/03 to relocate The Lives of Dax to after The Left Hand of Destiny)
I actually think there is a thread stickied, but there as there seems to be some bug in the software (trust me, I have equired many times about that bug), it doesn't show up on the screen unless it has been posted in in the last x number of days you have your settings on.

But I will unsticky that, and sticky this since this does look to be a much better thread (good work)

Oh, and you can call me Rob.

D'oh! Fixed.

Forgot about that--that's changed.

Posted by KRAD:

Well, that's open to interpretation. I see all of The Lives of Dax as occurring in the post-WYLB timeframe, as Ezri telling the stories to Vic. Still, those two stories are now listed, though I'll leave the others off. (I assume that most readers can figure them out!)

Marco mentioned on another thread that Akaar was going to be in one of the Lost Era novels, though not one of the two with Vaughn; do you happen to know which one would that be?

n-Vector takes place prior to Diplomatic Implausibility.
Fixed.

I can see why you include Cold Wars, but there's no real need to have "Death After Life" on the list. ("The Other Side," at least, has appearances by the Defiant and its crew, including Vaughn, and Worf.)
I included it mainly because it provides resolution to Cold Wars, rather than leaving the

Also, while I'm tickled by the inclusion, the Gorkon books aren't really connected to the relaunch, though they will be consistent with it.
Ah. You hadn't spoken up the last time around about that, so I left them in. Out they go (at least until I have a fit of boredom this summer and throw together every single novel connected to these that I can find).

Otherwise, looks okay to me.
To borrow from you, the approval of KRAD has been given, and it's nifty-keen!

(Note on the fixes: see my reply to Rob which will follow shortly.)

Thanks! I'll just have to make sure to bump it every once in a while until the bug is fixed. Now, can you do something about:

Spit out by forum software:
This post can no longer be edited because the maximum edit time has expired
I've got the changes others mentioned on my machine in a text file, all ready to go; all I would have to do is copy-and-paste. Is there any way for you to reopen the post (preferably permanently), or edit it for me? Or should I just add another reply, down at the end, with the most recent version?

Posted by Evil Robert:

No problem. (I couldn't remember who the mod here was offhand, so I figured addressing you by title was nice and safe )

Re: DS9 Relaunch Timeline

Actually, to some degree or other, there's a DS9 connection in all the Lost Era books (I don't want to get into specifics, as some of it might be spoilery). To answer your direct question, Akaar appears in The Sundered as a member of the Excelsior crew under Captain Sulu.
