      That’s fair I guess but it’s so weird seeing lots of chatter in the novel about Picard wanting to become an ambassador now that he has a kid and etc, etc.



      It would be very cool to see that linkage back to Countdown. I guess that curious fans like yours truly will just have to wait and see. Whether Picard truly becomes an ambassador or not, the destruction of Romulus will still be a watershed moment for the novels.



      The other interesting thing is given that it takes time to craft trek stories and get them published, such an event could take another 3-4 years to see publishing daylight.

      Actually, the novel line is totally not beholden to anything established in the
      COUNTDOWN comic book. The only thing they have to acknowledge is the destruction
      of Romulus in 2387 and Spock and Nero and his crew disappearing right after
      that.
