    I think this is the same as the previously reported TNG "Home Again." We've seen novels get their titles changed from preparation to publication before, and given the more tightly woven tapestry of the Trek universe I can see it getting rebranded because it has elements of both and it being decided that one is a better fit.

    If I'm wrong, though, then whoo hoo! Una McCormack's work in the past has been really good, and I'd love to be getting two novels from her in the same twelve month stretch. But I think I've read that Home Again got rebranded.

    Any novel by Una McCormack is something I always look forward to getting and reading.Any new ds9 novels is good news.:) It will be interesting to see how she continues her story followup for The Fall miniseries.

    Mixed feelings reading this - excitement at a new DS9 novel, disappointment at one less TNG novel. Unless it features characters from both?
    Looking forward to it either way.

    Neat. Obviously DS9 elements were featured prominently in Star Trek: Destiny, Star Trek: Typhon Pact and Star Trek: The Fall but it's nice to have proper DS9-branded prose.

    I am hoping that Kira's story is followed up on as well.

    Did I hear David R. George III is writing a DS9 novel after One Constant Star?

    ^ It will, she is the CMO on DS9 while Bashir is out still and until Starfleet finds a suitable replacement or he is able to come back somehow. Personally excited, I like when Beverly gets to shine in the books.

    Well Crusher had her story in Star Trek: The Fall: The Crimson Shadow
    I'm hoping that it's more about the DS9 crew

    ^ I am hoping that with this being printed under the DS9 title that it means DS9 will be coming back into the rotation as a series. There's a lot to figure out with Sisko on the Robinson and Bashir gone at the moment as well as Kira's future.
