Okay, so I've read all this stuff on the boards about how IfM has all these continuity mistakes, and the author got shafted etc etc. So I skipped that book for the time being. Now I'm almost finished Plagues of Night, and I'm seeing a lot of stuff being referenced from, I'm assuming, IfM. I've seen reference to Geordi captaining his ship, Nog having left DS9, and a couple of other things I can't recall off hand. So what exactly is it that makes IfM not fit, because I'm not seeing it? Is it the whole Leah Brahms thing? Is that it? Because seems to me that can be explained away rather easily. They tried it out and it wasn't working out, so Geordi ended up back with that woman he was with before. (Sorry, can't remember her name, but I think I heard someone say they broke up in IfM, but I know they are back together in David Mack's new trilogy, which I have read. And yeah, that might be a 'grasping at straws' explanation, but come on. This IS Geordi we're talking about. He's always screwing up relationships. ) Anyway, what else?
