Thanks for your complimentary comments about the book; I'm glad you
enjoyed it. As for where to shelve it?
In terms of the TrekLit continuity, Destiny currently represents the
far-forward edge of the shared literary continuity, in February 2381.
It is set after the previous TNG post-Nemesis books, and after the
first four Titan books. It is also four years after the current DS9
post-finale books (currently set in January 2377).
With regard to whether it should be shelved with one series as opposed
to another, it does kind of stand on its own. I'd recommend starting a
new meta-series category, because there are some books coming down the
pike (such as Keith R.A. DeCandido's "A SINGULAR DESTINY") that will
also be part of that hard-to-define category.
Just my two cents.
Thanks for reading, and for taking the time to share your comments.
