    I know that three of them are. DS9: Abyss was part of the Relaunch continuity; TNG: Rogue was the debut of Ranul Keru and has been referenced elsewhere; and I referenced TOS: Cloak myself in Ex Machina. But I can't think of anything that's referenced VGR: Shadow.

    Wonderful! Discovering the litverse has been a dream come true to this continuity druggy.

    A random side note, but as a kid I read a single ST book, Rogue Saucer. I was in fourth grade and I really liked it. Later on I just assumed that all ST books were just like that; stand-alone stories that could be consumed like an episode.

    Finding out I was wrong literally took me from reading 1 book or less a year to to a couple every month!

    Well, the books were all standalone, outside of miniseries and New Frontier, until around 2001 when the DS9 R started. A few older books from before then have been retroactively added to the Litverse, but they weren't written with that in mind.

    Heh. That was one of my first, too, at around the same age. I don't remember the precise order, but the other ones that got me started were "The Return" and the Voyager book in the "Invasion" miniseries.

    I hadn't known that the books had post-series stories (to say nothing of a shared, on-going progressive continuity) until a year ago. I always just figured the books still did their little episodic adventures. My history with ST books consisted of Rogue Saucer, about 20-odd years ago to....Takedown somewhat around the time it came out. It popped on Amazon for me and I was like, "ADMIRAL Riker?! What is this??"
