We don't want the STO universe tied into the treklit continuity or canon continuity. STO is fun to play but it's stories are not compelling and do not present a future nearly as interesting as that created by the novel writers. And already, the 2 continuities have diverged too much to be brought together again. However, I am for keeping Countdown with the novel continuity as it worked well as a ST09 prequel and was well written. The problem with the ST09 comic tie-ins, however, is according to them Vger was part of the Borg which just doesn't make sense.
