RE: [Star Trek Books] Star Trek Typhon Pact Zero Sum Game (other book descriptions)
- Thanks Jason.
I'm curious. Where did you get the Seize The Fire synopsis from?
In regards to the DS9 tie ins, there are 2 obvious ones: Zero Sum Game and
Rough Beasts of Empire. I am guessing that "Paths to Disharmony" might be a
more loose tie-in because of the whole Andorian business.
Too bad, there won't be any sign of these until late September at the
I like to think that the 4 years for Sisko was just a rounding down from
I think that the story lines will pick up in early to mid 2381 which is
between 4 and 5 years after The Soul Key.
I guess this means that in a few years we'll have a "DS9: Lost Years". :-P

The Sisko / Spock one should be Rough Beasts of Empire.
I'm excited about the Typhon Pact books. The last few years have seemed
DS9 lite, and at least 3 of the volumes here have ties to DS9 storylines so
I'm excited about that. It sounds like 'Rough Beasts of Empire' will pick
up in 2380 (Sisko returned from The Celestial Temple in 2376), which is less
of a jump forward for DS9 than first predicted; the last Relaunch book ended
I'm actually a few books behind on the current continuity (not read any of
the new ones since Destiny) but I'm going back and reading ones I missed in
this new continuity the first time around and rereading the others so I have
plenty to keep me busy between now and the release of these books.

- Thanks for these synopses, Jason. All these books sound like good reads; I
am especially interested in 'Paths of Disharmony' as it continues an
in-depth look into the Andorians. Though there is something in all of these
for me, especially with the Gorn aspect of 'Seize the Fire' and the
splintering of the Romulans in 'Rough Beasts of Empire'.
I look forward to these coming out, but I'm currently re-reading the
Vanguard series from 'Harbinger' (still need to get the SCE Vanguard short;
'Distant Early Warning, wasn't it?) so I am up to speed for getting
