    I just got my copy of Revelation and Dust in, and although I haven't finished it yet, I do like to read the About The Author at the end of every novel I get. Dunno why I do that. I don't read the last page or anything.


    Anyway, all it says is: You've reached in the end of Revelation and Dust, but David R George III will be back....in the lost era!!!


    Well well, doesn't that sound interesting? :D

    Wow I realize this could mean one of two things.
    1. The Lost Era of the early 24th century. This would be pretty cool.
    2. 'The lost era' of DS9's missing years. This would totally freaking amazing.

    I doubt they'd reuse the phrase "the lost era" for something other than The Lost Era. That would be a little too misleading. Like if I referred to the 2009 movie as Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Sure, technically it's a motion picture named Star Trek, but it would still be a bad idea to refer to it that way.

    Well, it didn't say the lost era with capital, ie The Lost Era. So who knows what he means. But, truthfully, I do feel you're right, and that it will be The Lost Era we've seen sofar. Which is awesome, really.:D

    ^Perhaps that's because it'll be during "the lost era" but not be under that actual banner, like Cast No Shadow.

    You know, to me personally that book is so much a part of The Lost Era, I constantly forget it's not officially a part of it. I actually have it next the Lost Era novels in my bookcase.

    If any more "official" Lost Era novels do come out, hopefully they'll have the dates on the spines. I was reorganizing my bookshelves earlier this week, and that's one thing which I liked about the original Lost Era novels: the date on the spine.

    For me, 2377 to 2381 for the DS9 characters IS the Lost Era!

    David R. George recently did an internet podcast and said his Lost era novel takes place in the Tos era and that it was a Captain he'd written about in a previous book. He's taking a break from writing about the Tng & Ds9 characters.

    My theory fits so far...

    Or it could also be another Enterprise B adventure with Harriman in command. Hey, he was captain for nearly twenty years, plenty of story material there.

    I also realized this must be The Lost Era and not the DS9 gap when DRGIII said on his facebook page that whether there would be any more DS9 novels would probably depend on how well Revelations and Dust sells.

    Disappointing again.

    Totally with you on this. I wouldn't mind some Harriman stuff, but Demora is at the top of my list in the lost era. Serpents Among the Ruins is one of my favourite trek novels. It'll be fun to see what he's going to do.

    I'd be happy either way, as long as it's more Enterprise-B written by DRG III. I've noticed that they do seem to be going back to doing more non-TV series books. For a while it seemed like we pretty much nothing but books based solely on the TV series, but now we have DTI, Rise of The Federation (I haven't read it yet, but from what I've read about it it sounds like it's gone far enough beyond the TV series that it could be considered a seperate entity), The Seekers, and now this. This makes me very happy because I tend to really enjoy these kinds of books.

    I'm not sure I'd call Rise of the Federation a separate series any more than the current DS9 or Voyager novels are. And we don't really have any indication if there will be more DTI novels or not.

    ^I think of ROTF as an evolution from Enterprise rather than a direct continuation of it.

    I was talking about the stuff that's come out in the last two or three years or has been announced. If the DS9R and Post-Full Circle Voyager books had started within the last couple years I would have included them on the list.
