    One correction, at the bottom of the TITAN column: my novel's title is Fortunes of War (plural).

    Thrawn downplays his fantastically detailed insights and recall! Such as the delightful suggestion of a 20th century section to collect up the bundle of books that explore that era.
    Durp, corrected now!

    So where does Last Best Hope lie? :)

    Is there a reason Pathways isn't paired with Mosaic in the Voyager backstory box? Was it just referenced less by subsequent novels?

    Perhaps because much of it was contradicted by the show itself once Jeri Taylor was no longer showrunner.

    I actually messaged and asked Kirsten directly; this was back before she got the Discovery gig and stopped posting here. She said she used Mosaic in her characterization of Janeway but she didn’t use Pathways. She suggested the disparity.

    Nice to see it updated, and is a good guide to Trek-lit of that era (pre-Picard).

    The chart, along with the bullet points below it, are a great resource for those just getting their feet wet with Star Trek books. Fantastic job!

    It's nice to get an update. This and @Ryan12340's site are main resources for trying to figure out what order to read things in, and for putting together Memory Omega pages.

    Wasn't Fortune*s* of War the name retroactively applied to the Dreadnought/Battlestations duology?

    8of5 changed the chart because of David's post.

    This is becoming a predestination paradox :)

    Fuck me, I actually misremembered my own book's title. Fortune, singular, was correct to begin with.

    We need an upcoming book now to be called Fortunes of War.
