Yeah, I am fine with that. The only thing that disappoints me is the litverse probably will not continue. I mean, I know there is a "plan" and all, but I can't imagine that will mean the continuation of TNG, DS9 & Voyager (and Enterprise for that matter). Perhaps they might continue elements of TNG line, because it's still loosely tied to Picard in the sense that both are based originally on TNG TV series so they share some elements. Picard is more a sequel to TNG than to DS9 or Voyager for instance. The thing is though I know people argue that Picard is not going to build off what the novels did to this point because they only are followed by a small percentage of fans. I get that. While I would have loved if Picard simply picked up where "Collateral Damage" left off basically, I realize that's totally unreasonable. But is there enough of a novel fanbase to see the litverse continue as an alternate universe, enough to make it worth S&S's while to continue it? That'd be an interesting question. Are there enough of us that want to see it continue and are fine with treating the two as alternate universes? Honestly I don't know the answer to that. I suppose maybe we'll see. Whatever this plan is, I'm guessing it involves continuing at least some segment of the existing litverse (I'd put money on the Data/Lal storyline but that's just a guess). We'll get to see if that sells enough to filling out the schedule with an occasional litverse story. Logically one would think a book based on a currently run series would make more money for them. But who knows, maybe that's a false assumption. Maybe books are such a niche market that it really doesn't matter as long as "Star Trek" shows up at the top of the book.
