    During the latest T&G show episode James Swallow revealed that he will write the next Titan novel, which will be part of the The Fall series. ETA: Just to clarify: James Swallow was in the chatroom during the show, not a guest on the podcast.

    (Link, the relevant parts starts about the 67 minutes mark IIRC; BTW I think Nick confused Dayton's upcoming TOS novel with his entry in the The Fall series during that discussion)


    So it seems there's only one slot left open with DRG III , Dayton Ward, David Mack and now James Swallow attached to it and it being a five book series. Maybe Kirsten Beyer's next Voyager book?

    YES! I loved Synthesis, so I am very happy indeed to see him coming back for more Titan.

    IIRC, Kirsten said her next Voyager book wasn't likely to materialize until 2014. And the Voyager fleet seem pretty removed from Alpha Quadrant politics, so I can't see them being involved in "The Fall" (of the Typhon Pact. If I'm right.)

    Not to mention that the Voyager novels are still only up to the fall of 2381, and the main Alpha-Quadrant 24th-century continuity is up to 2384.

    If (and I grant that this is an 'if') each book is a specific series, like the original 4 Typhon Pact books, we know there is DS9 and Titan, and TNG and Aventine seem the obvious two other choices, what could the other book be?

    Another TNG or DS9 book?
    A crossover?
    A New Frontier book?

    I am relieved that Michael Martin is not writing the Titan novel.

    I would like KRAD to write the final book. But he seems finished with Treklit for now. So I would say Una McCormack.

    Still haven't stared Titan, but I'm very much in the market for an exploration-focused series, so I'm happy you're all happy with that author choice.

    Recent developments in lit may offer some new avenues for setting White Blue's system restore point and getting him a Windows 8 upgrade...

    (^ I bought that on Sunday, and I'm impressed by how modern and made-for-the-Internet-age it is: I had to use Google to find out how to reboot ...)

    It looks like he was running Vista. I don't think it will upgrade !

    Titan is easily my least favorite Trek line but I am glad its carrying on.

    I think you've missed an update or two. The 5-book set is The Fall, a multi-series crossover that begins with a single DS9 book. When that first book was announced as the start of a 5-book series, there were a couple of people who speculated that the whole 5-book series might be DS9, but those speculations were quickly proven wrong by later updates.
