^ Yes, my decision to make Erika Hernandez the linchpin character in the Destiny trilogy occurred before Mike and Andy made her a key player in the Enterprise books, but considering the role she played in the TV series, I think she would have appeared in Mike and Andy's novels regardless of whether I had featured her.

As for why she ended up as my protagonist ... well, I let the story dictate what had to happen. Because the entire trilogy was spawned by my editors asking me to "explain" a caption in Ships of the Line that said the Columbia had been "rediscovered" in the 24th century by DS9 personnel in the Gamma Quadrant, her story became the first one I worked out for the trilogy.  Consequently, it ended up being the thread that tied everything else together.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Dave, are there any plans in the works to let us in on what the DS9 crew has been doing during this tumultuous period in the history of the Alpha Quadrant? Im missing out on some valuable Bashir-Kira-Shar-Ro-Prynn-Vaughn action here. The newest DS9 books dont even touch on the gigantic Borg War engulfing the Federation and Romulan/Klingon Empires. We heard about the da Vinci crew, the Excalibur crew, but nothing about DS9. I hope one day we might?

I don't know. Maybe.  There are upcoming DS9 books set in the post-Destiny timeframe that fill in some backstory from the intervening five years, but I don't know if the editors intend to publish any books set during that period.  They might.  We'll just have to wait and see.

That would be great!  Esp where the story has involved everyone in the Federation with the Borg war.  It'd be a good story to see how those on DS9 and those who had been on DS9 have been affected.  

I liked the ST:DS9 book 'The Never-Ending Sacrifice'  It touched a little bit on some history for a few DS9 characters and, for me, was a teaser of how those on DS9 went on after the series and it gave even more back-story of the Cardassians which we got a taste of with Andrew Robinsons book, 'A Stich in Time'.  It left me wanting more!  Which is a good thing for a book to do, IMHO ;)

Ta-Dah!

Destiny Trilogy

:)

You were right, Sonny, way back when--the thread shoulda been pinned. But there are spoilers.

Indeed. The storyline and consequences wer so massive, a single Destiny thread should've been pinned, because people are always reading them, and have questions. And they have questions answered by the author himself! So yes, this should be pinned.

Tell you what, I'll put a request in the the Website forum later. :)

tx Sonny. I forgot the picture came before the story. :)

...On second thought, that's not working out: I'm gonna stop calling you "Sonny". You're young, and I'm not nearly so young, but I'm too young to be calling people "Sonny". :D

Then we'll call it practice for when I really do get old...er.

It's too late, though. I already talk to the next generation in my family and out pops my mom's advice. :O

:angry:

'bout 15 years back a waiter in a restaurant called me "Ma'am" -- it was my first time. And my dad starts sniggering like crazy, till I said "Don't laugh: you're the FATHER of a 'Ma'am'". That shut him up.

Anyhow, Sonny, as I recall, you've got a next generation after yourself now, too, right? :p
