Let me start of with the deepest apologies to KRAD and David Mack. I'm on vacation and snowed in and bored. Certain threads here got me thinking about just how many books there are that are actually consistant with the current novel-verse inhabited by the SCE, Mackenzie Calhoun, Elias Vaughn, Vanguard and the rest. By consistant, I mean by sharing characters, events or situations. I know that there are some inconsistancies of events and characters in the list, Ogawa's child's gender and the fate of her husband from Genesis Wave to Titan, for example. Such is life in a shared universe. Absolute consistancy is impossible in a constantly evolving shared universe, so I go more for the intent of consistancy, than the actual success of it. In cases like these, I assume that while we may see an event such as the Genesis disaster in one separate "Myriad Universe" where Ogawa's life turned out one way, a near identical event happened in the "standard" universe as well, where Ogawa's life turned just a little differently. Just for the record, several books that I count among my favorites, the Crucible and Millenium trilogies, are not included herein. Crucible, Millenium and the Shatnerverse, while having some consistancies with other works, the inconsistancies (regarding McCoy, Sisko and Janeway, respectively) are too great to ignore. I'm sure there are connections I've missed, either from memory loss or simply not catching the connection, but this is what my boredom produced... By series... TOS (50) The Final Reflection-- Worf's favorite book! PAD's The Rift included first generation security team of Meyer and Boyajin mentioned in Strike Zone. (The pair actually first appeared in Trek comics written by PAD) The Pike segments of The Rift are consistant with Vulcan's Glory and Legacy. PAD's The Captain's Daughter is consistant with the Lost Era novel Serpents Among The Ruins. The six-book New Earth series was continued in the Gateways series. Greg Cox's Khan trilogy was consistant with the DS9-R by using the same flag for Khan that was established in Abyss. The Khan trilogy itself was foreshadowed in Cox's Assignment Eternity. Events from Vulcan's Forge, Vulcan's Heart and the Vulcan's Soul trilogy were mentioned in The Art of the Impossible, Articles of the Federation and Taking Wing. Also, the characters of Christine Vale and Min Zife appeared in Vulcan's Soul. In The Name of Honor introduced the pre-Gorkon chancellor that was later used in other Klingon-based lit. The Last Round-Up introduced a species and situations that were refered to in the Spirit Walk books in the VOY-R. Ex Machina established Will Decker's multi-species starship experiment, later referred to in the Titan series. Burning Dreams was consistant with Vulcan's Heart and Spock's relationship to Saavik. Sulu's role in Forged In Fire was foreshadowed in the Lost Era's Serpents Among The Ruins. Vulcan's Soul and SCE's War Stories make things interesting. Both refer to characters from Diane Duane's Rihannsu era stories, which arguably brings in the whole pre-Richard Arnold era loose continuity that existed back in the day. Duane's eight TOS novels all included her unique cast of characters. Even in the Arnold-era Doctor's Orders she managed to sneak in Janice Kersarus. The Lost Years quartet were consistant with Duane's Rihannsu novels in their take on Surak's time. Lost Years author J. M. Dillard brought characters from her previous novels, Mindshadow, Demons and Bloodthirst along for the ride. Diane Carey's Piper novels, Dreadnought! and Battlestations! were mentioned in The Lost Years in referring to the "Rittenhouse scandal". A.C. Crispen's Zar novels, Yesterday's Son and Time For Yesterday had cameos from Duane's Naraht, the Starfleet Horta and Ingrit Tomson from Dillard's books. Crispen's Time For Yesterday opens things up even further-- refering to not only some of the above, but also to Crisis on Centaurus, The Vulcan Academy Murders (and by extension The IDIC Epidemic), The Entropy Effect and Deep Domain. Rules of Engagement uses Diane Duane's cast of characters. TNG (41) The 9 A Time to... books, and the 6 post-Nemesis books starting with Death in Winter through Losing the Peace that make up the current TNG continuity makes another 15. Related... Pretty much all of Peter David's TNG work has been grandfathred in in one way or another. Strike Zone introduced the Kreel and Selelvian races, as well as the transfer-prone Meyers and Boyajin. A Rock and A Hard Place's Quentin Stone was mentioned in the Mueller story in No Limits. Vendetta has been refered to in both New Frontier and in Before Dishonor. The Riker-Troi backstory from the Imazadi books was used in the A Time to... series, and finally Q-in Law and I,Q and Q-Squared were all refered to in Q & A. His young adult trilogy introduced key players in New Frontier. That's another eleven. Reunion, Requiem and The Valiant are all part of the Stargazer continuity. The Q-Continuum trilogy was referenced in Q & A, and was consistant with New Frontier (re:Selar's transfer). Inconsistancies include Sonya Gomez still being aboard the Enterprise. The six Double Helix books are a part of both the New Frontier and Stargazer continuities. Elements of the Gemworld duology are used as a part of Melora Pazlar's backstory in the Titan series. Diplomatic Implausibility acts as a "pilot" for the Gorkon series among other things. The Maximum Warp duology uses characters from DS9-R. Immortal Coil had a brief nod to Ranul Keru of the TNG Section 31 novel and the Titan series. The events of the four Genesis Wave books were mentioned in Articles of the Federation. The Battle of Betazed is consistant with the DS9-R. The Buried Age is consistant with Q&A and Greater Than the Sum DS9 (27) The relaunch (starting with Avatar and including Left Hand of Destiny) so far has had seventeen entries with two announced on the way. Related... The 34th Rule was mentioned in Mission Gamma: Twilight. A Stitch in Time was grandfathered into the continuity in Avatar. Hollow Men was consistant with the DS9-R. (I'm honestly drawing a blank on the specific here, but I do remember making a connection) The Terok Nor trilogy was consistant with the re-launch continuity. The Lives of Dax and Prophecy and Change anthologies are both consistant with the re-launch. Voyager (15) Four re-launch books so far with two more announced. Christie Golden brought the character of Lyssa Campbell over from her six DQ-VOY books into the re-launch. Also events from the String Theory trilogy are mentioned in Q&A. Enterprise (8) The ENT books by Mangels and Martin (Last Full Measure, The Good That Men Do, Kobayashi Maru and presumably the upcoming "Romulan War" by Michael Martin) have all been internally consistant and consistant with the DS9-R with the useage of Andorian bond-groups of four and the sheltreth. Mangels and Martin also imported the character of Donna O'Neill from Dave Stern's four novels, bring the ENT total to at least eight. Other Series (107) New Frontier has sixteen novels and an antholgy released, with a novel on the way (18), SCE/COE had a whopping 74 entries. Vanguard has three with two more announced. Titan has had four with two more announced. Gorkon\Klingon Empire has had four entries. Mini-series (40) Pretty much all of the Pocket novel mini-series (except Day of Honor, I think) can be placed in the novel-verse continuity. The four-book Invasion! series was referenced in SCE's Ring Around The Sky. The six-book Captain's Table series was a part of the New Frontier series, and later spawned an anthology that spanned the lit-line. The four book Section 31 series is a part of the DS9-R and introduced the character of Ranul Keru from Titan. (Abyss is already counted with the DS9-R books above.) The seven-book Gateways series spanned the lit line. (As above, the DS9 was included with the re-launch, and Christie Golden's Voyager entry was acknowledged above as well.) The six-book Lost Era was consistant with the novelverse by including lit characters such as Elias Vaughn and Akaar (The latter, is admitedly technically a canon character, but other than his birth, the character as developed is all from the lit.) The sixpart E-Mini series, Mere Anarchy and Slings and Arrows both had ties to the larger novel-verse (I honestly can't remember what I noted in MA. Did Christopher's entry mention the events of Ex Machina? But I do seem to remember Miranda Kadohata in S&A) And of course, the recent Destiny trilogy was the continuation of both Titan and post-Nemesis TNG. Others Articles of the Federation (Duh.) A Singular Destiny (Takes off from Destiny) Tales From The Dominion War (Stories from SQZ, SCE, GKN, NF) The Brave and the Bold (Consistant with DS9-R and GKN) Tales From The Captain's Table (Mentioned above, stories from NF, GKN, DS9-R, VOY-R, others) Two Mirror Universe anthologies-- consistant with DS9-R and NF. Misc. DC Comics first series featured some novel charaters (such as Naraht), and at least one character, "Bernie" the Klingon, appeared in the later novel-verse. DC Comics second series had the character of Sara Tuchinsky, who appeared in David's The Rift (as "Tooch") and IIRC, in one of the Mere Anarchy books as well. Marvel Comics characters from their Starfleet Academy (Pava sh'Aqabaa), Early Voyages (Moves-With-Burning-Grace) and DS9 (Etana Kol) series have appeared in the Titan series, SCE's Where Time Stands Still, Burning Dreams and the DS9-R. Wildstorm comics did a New Frontier comic, and two miniseries using DS9-R characters. The events of Wildstorm's Enter The Wolves were refered to in The Art of The Impossible. KRAD's Perchance to Dream mini-series introduced Ra'ch B'ullhy and other aspects of Damiano culture, later used in A Time for War, A Time for Peace. Events from The Gorn Crisis became the basis for Nanietta Bacco's backstory. IDW did a New Frontier mini-series. The Spock vs. Q audio plays were refered to in NF's Gods Above. ------ Well, that's it. That makes about 294 Pocket publications and a handful of comics and other stuff. Wow. I don't know what use this info would be to anyone, and if you've read this far, I don't know whether to offer congratulations or condolences. Comments, corrections and otherwise are welcome.
