    I noticed that the unabridged audio for the upcoming "To Lose the Earth" is being listed as also read by Kirsten Beyer. Maybe an error? I was expecting January LaVoy, but she's not mentioned on the current version of the audio's cover art.

    Congratulations! First Trek author since Shatner and De Lancie to narrate her own novel?

    Just finished TLTE. You say that’s your last? Will the series continue, or are you having a break? ‘Cause it’s a bit of a cliffhanger ending...

    It was my understanding that any dangling plot lines would be resolved in the ‘Coda’ trilogy.

    That's coming out later this year (September to November IIRC). It's a continuation of the relaunch storylines from TNG, DS9, Voyager and Titan (which all share a common continuity for the last 20 years of so) and the common speculation is that it will tie it to the Picard show's timeline in some fashion and draw the relaunch continuity to a close. Basically as it stands now Picard and the novel continuity are incompatible. But, previous novels, such as the Department of Temporal Investigations novels, give us potential avenues to explore, and Kirsten's book does leave us some threads in that direction that I imagine the Coda trilogy will use. She's basically said as much, and she is one of the showrunners on Picard too.

    Now, nobody has officially said the relaunch continuity is ending with Coda. But it's probably a safe bet (but then, as Spock would say, there are always possibilities so who knows).
