Which book or books do you have them appear in? I would be interested in seeing how similar or different they are from what I've seen so far. The practice of using Warrantors is certainly a different way of characterizing the Federation than what I'm used to. I guess I keep overthinking it when there's no need. The crisis on Centaurus was sparked off after a grumpy sentient had an argument with a malfunctioning ATM. I like it when tie-in fiction is able to provide cohesion between stories that are very different. Dweller connects TMP with TWOK, and characterizes Spock in a very satisfying way. I'm glad to know that this will be picked up on in Spock's World. I had a try at skimming through The Wounded Sky, which I find is challenging for finding details like this. I get the impression that the protoGod has interacted or come into contact with a being or beings called The Others, which it says confirms Kirk's story about coming from another universe. And I get the impression that after mentioning these mysterious Others, it seems like it or they decide to apply that same name to themselves (as if they feel kinship in some sense to the Others from "our" universe and feel like they are the counterpart for there own...?). It would be neat if Dwellers was deliberately referencing the same Others who make contact with the protoGod. @TheAlmanac Thanks for posting those earlier perspectives about DitC! I got a kick out of reading them.
