I'm an idiot, so would mind pointing out some other books around those lengths so I can get an idea of how long that would be?
Articles of the Federation was 104,000 words. A Burning House was 95,000 words. Q & A was 68,000 words.

Ok, cool. So it looks like they should be in the 350 - 400 page range then.

Nah. They'll be 250 pages, and come with complimentary magnifying glasses with little Trek quotes on the handles - "Fascinating", "Scanning for life-forms", etc.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I realy want the presumed dead Captain to be Janeway, but a mad thought has occured to me...what if the person they find is the alternate future Janeway from Voyager's finale?

But she was an Admiral there, so it wouldn't 100 % fit with the "long thought dead Captain" bit.

Indeed, and neither would the other Janeway since she too was an Admiral. This one also doesn't fit the "long thought..." part because she hasn't been dead very long at all.

^ Unless the phrasing used for marketing purposes doesn't exactly reflect the details. I mean, which seems more exciting to you: "a captain long-thought dead" or "an admiral recently-thought dead"?

Re: Destiny trilogy - pretty heavy spoilers

Is anyone worried that the Future Spock sequences of Trek XI would contradict the Destiny triology?

It's unlikely they would cover the same ground.

Anyway, the risk of contradiction by new canon has always existed for Trek novels. If we let our fear of what might happen hold us back, we'd never accomplish anything worthwhile. For that matter, eventual contradiction, whether by real scientific breakthroughs or simply the advance of the calendar, is the inevitable fate of all science fiction. It just comes with the territory.
