One of the biggest things working for The Lost Era was the ability to work with events and characters we knew of for that time period, and that fans would want to read about. But are there any stories in the period starting with the birth of the Federation and Kirk's five year mission that were hinted at in any of the series or movies? Characters we know of that lived in period and we would want to know more about? This period could give us some great stories that I believe a lot of fans would like to read about: Starfleet's earliest exploration into the unknown, humanity's first colonization efforts, the development of the Federation, humanity's struggle to find it's place in an intergalactic society. So, I guess what I'm saying/asking: would you read novels set in this period?
