Worf, son of Mogh, first appeared in "Encounter at Farpoint" (TNG) as a junior-grade lieutenant and member of the Enterprise-D bridge crew. He was made acting chief of security in "Skin of Evil" (TNG), getting the position permanently some time prior to "The Child" (TNG), and being promoted to full lieutenant some time prior to "Evolution" (TNG). He remained on the Enterprise until its destruction in Star Trek Generations, shortly after his promotion to lieutenant commander, and, after spending some time at the Klingon monastery on Boreth, he was assigned to Deep Space 9 as strategic operations officer in "The Way of the Warrior" (DS9). He was made Federation ambassador to the Klingon Empire in "What You Leave Behind" (DS9).

Worf's enjoyment of the sunrise over the First City was first mentioned in TNG: A Time to Sow by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore.

Page 2:

Worf's providing of prefix codes to the Enterprise at Tezwa occurred in TNG: A Time to Kill by David Mack.

Giancarlo Wu was introduced as the senior attaché to the Federation ambassador to the Klingon Empire in TNG: Diplomatic Implausibility by Keith R.A. DeCandido, which also established his dress patterns and his omnipresent padd. He has also appeared in TNG: Gateways: Doors Into Chaos by Robert Greenberger, The Brave and the Bold Book 2 by Keith R.A. DeCandido, GKN: Honor Bound by Keith R.A. DeCandido, A Time to Sow, and A Time to Kill.

The Federation News Service was established in "Call to Arms" (DS9).

The Pandrilite species was introduced in TNG: Reunion by Michael Jan Friedman.

President Min Zife and his secretary of military intelligence Nelino Quafina were introduced in A Time to Kill, though Zife was also mentioned in "Eleven Hours Out" by Dave Galanter (Tales of the Dominion War) and seen in TOS: Vulcan's Soul Book 1: Exodus by Josepha Sherman & Susan Shwartz. Zife's chief of staff Koll Azernal first appeared in TNG: A Time to Hate by Robert Greenberger. All three resigned in TNG: A Time to Heal by David Mack.

The office of the Federation president was first seen in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, which also established its location in Paris, France. An office with a different design was seen in "Paradise Lost" (DS9). Zife's office is the same as the one from Star Trek VI, albeit redesigned a bit.

Page 4:

A portion of Zife's resignation speech was seen in A Time to Heal, although it was written for this volume, and David Mack used a portion for the appropriate scene in his book.

Zife and Azernal's role in the Alpha Quadrant victory in the Dominion War was established in A Time to Kill. The Dominion War began in "Call to Arms," and continued for two years, ending in "What You Leave Behind." It involved the Federation and the Klingon Empire, and later the Romulan Star Empire, fighting against the Dominion, which had absorbed the Cardassian Union, and later the Breen Confederacy. The war was the subject of most of the final two seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Chancellor Martok first appeared as a general in "In Purgatory's Shadow" (DS9), though a changeling impersonating him was seen in "The Way of the Warrior" and "Apocalypse Rising" (DS9). He served as Chancellor Gowron's chief of staff until Worf beat Gowron in a duel and transferred the chancellorship to Martok in "Tacking Into the Wind" (DS9).

Worf was made a part of Martok's House in "Soldiers of the Empire" (DS9).

Worf challenged the High Council's condemnation of his father Mogh, then accepted discommendation in order to preserve unity on the High Council, in "Sins of the Father" (TNG).

Gowron was introduced in "Reunion" (TNG) as a candidate to take on the chancellorship. He was described as an outsider who often challenged the High Council. He remained chancellor until near the end of the Dominion War.

Worf and his brother Kurn put their support behind Gowron when his chancellorship was challenged in "Redemption Parts 1-2" (TNG).

Page 7:

Gowron's ascension to the chancellorship happened because Worf killed his only opponent, Duras in "Reunion." Worf also was the one who suggested installing the clone of Kahless as emperor to Gowron in "Rightful Heir" (TNG).

Ambassador Spock first appeared in "The Cage" (TOS). After serving as first officer and later captain of the Enterprise, he died and was resurrected by the Genesis Device in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and then became first officer of the Enterprise-A despite his rank in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI. He became captain of the Intrepid after the Enterprise was decommissioned in TOS: Vulcan's Forge by Josepha Sherman & Susan Shwartz, then entered the Diplomatic Corps, and served as a Federation ambassador-at-large for many decades, before undertaking a personal long-term mission underground on Romulus in "Unification Parts 1-2" (TNG). He met Worf and told him of his influence on Klingon politics in The Brave and the Bold Book 2.

Alexander Rozhenko first appeared in "Reunion," the son of Worf and Ambassador K'Ehleyr. He was sent to live with Worf's foster parents on Earth after his mother's death, but came to live with Worf on the Enterprise-D in "New Ground" (TNG). After the Enterprise's destruction in Generations, he returned to Earth, as established in "The Way of the Warrior" and TNG: Triangle: Imzadi II by Peter David, then enlisted in the Klingon Defense Force during the war some time prior to "Sons and Daughters" (DS9). He was assigned to the Ya'Vang in "You are Cordially Invited..." (DS9), and has remained at that post since.

K'Ehleyr first appeared in "The Emissary" (TNG) as a Federation special emissary. She first met Worf at the Academy in TNG: Line of Fire by Peter David, but their relationship came to a bad end six years prior to "The Emissary." She was made Federation ambassador to the Klingon Empire some time prior to "Reunion," and in that episode she revealed to Worf that she had a son by him. She was killed by Duras, son of Ja'rod in "Reunion."

Page 16:

The Breen were first mentioned in "Hero Worship" (TNG) and first seen in "Indiscretion" (DS9). They allied with the Dominion in "Penumbra" (DS9).

Page 17:

Nog first appeared in "Emissary" (DS9). He went to Starfleet Academy in "Little Green Men" (DS9), and was assigned to Deep Space 9 as a cadet in "The Ascent" (DS9), serving alongside Worf. During the war, he was given a field promotion to ensign in "Favor the Bold" (DS9), and became a junior-grade lieutenant in "What You Leave Behind."

Page 21:

The secret sub-subbasement of the embassy, used by the rogue underground Federation agency Section 31, was revealed in A Time to Kill.

Klingon Imperial Intelligence, or I.I., was established in The Final Reflection.

Lorgh was first mentioned in "Sins of the Father" as the family friend who took in Worf's brother Kurn after Worf's parents were killed at the Khitomer Massacre.

Page 22:

The House of Mogh was made defunct by Chancellor Gowron after Worf opposed the Klingon invasion of Cardassia in "The Way of the Warrior."

Page 23:

Commander William Riker, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Counselor Deanna Troi, Lt. Commander Data, and Dr. Beverly Crusher all first appeared in "Encounter at Farpoint" as the first officer, commanding officer, ship's counselor, second officer, and chief medical officer, respectively, of the Enterprise-D. After that ship's destruction in Generations, they took on the same positions on the Enterprise-E, established in Star Trek: First Contact.

Lieutenant Christine Vale first appeared as the Enterprise-E security chief in SCE: The Belly of the Beast by Dean Wesley Smith. She also appeared in Doors Into Chaos, The Brave and the Bold Book 2, and all eight prior A Time to... books.

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge first appeared as a junior-grade lieutenant in "Encounter at Farpoint" as the Enterprise-D's conn officer. He was promoted to full lieutenant and made chief engineer just prior to "The Child" and promoted to lieutenant commander some time prior to "Evolution." After the Enterprise-D's destruction in Generations, he took on the same position on the Enterprise-E, established in First Contact.

Page 24:

The Rashanar Battle Site was the location of many Dominion War battles, as established in TNG: A Time to Be Born by John Vornholt. While on a salvage mission there, the Enterprise and the Juno were harassed by what turned out to be a so-called "demon ship" that could impersonate other vessels; said ship framed the Enterprise for the destruction of the Juno.

Data's creator, Dr. Noonien Soong, gave him an emotion chip in "Brothers" (TNG). However, it was stolen by Data's "brother" Lore. When Data deactivated Lore in "Descent Part 2" (TNG), he took the emotion chip, but did not install it until Generations. On orders from Admiral Nakamura, Data removed his emotion chip in TNG: A Time to Die by John Vornholt.

Riker's experiences as a POW on Tezwa occurred in A Time to Heal. Kinchawn, the power-mad prime minister of Tezwa, was introduced in A Time to Kill, during which he was ousted; he led guerrilla attacks on Tezwa in an attempt to restore his government in A Time to Heal.

Page 25:

Riker and Troi decided to get married in A Time to Hate.

Riker's regular poker game was established in "The Emissary."

Page 26:

The Gorn, the planet Cestus III, and the Metrons all first appeared in "Arena" (TOS), when the Gorn attacked Cestus, resulting in retaliation by the Enterprise. The Metrons then put the Gorn captain and Captain James T. Kirk on a planet to solve their dispute one-on-one.

The Enterprise's attempt to recruit the Gorn for the war effort, the Gorn coup, and the Gorn attack on Cestus III, were chronicled in TNG: The Gorn Crisis written by Kevin J. Anderson & Rebecca Moesta.

The establishment of the Demilitarized Zone between Cardassia and the Federation occurred in "Journey's End" (TNG). The Federation colonists who remained in the DMZ eventually gave rise to the Maquis resistance in "The Maquis Parts 1-2" (DS9). Not everyone, however, would have remained in the DMZ.

Page 28:

The two-hundred-year-old mystery and the historic first contact are both the encounter with the Dokaalan in A Time to Sow and TNG: A Time to Harvest by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore. The two major wars that were averted were between the Bader and the Dorset on Delta Sigma IV in TNG: A Time to Love by Robert Greenberger and A Time to Hate, and between the Federation and the Klingon Empire over Tezwa in A Time to Kill and A Time to Heal.

Riker was established as the captain of the Titan in Star Trek Nemesis. He was offered the captaincy in A Time to Hate. He accepted it shortly after A Time to Heal.

She was on Betazed when it fell to the Dominion in "In the Pale Moonlight" (DS9), and led the Betazoid resistance against the occupying Dominion forces, as established in "The Ceremony of Innocence is Drowned" by Keith R.A. DeCandido (Tales of the Dominion War) and TNG: The Battle of Betazed by Charlotte Douglas & Susan Kearney. Her efforts in the reconstruction of Betazed were established in The Brave and the Bold Book 2.

Page 32:

Mr. Homn died in "The Ceremony of Innocence is Drowned."

Betazed's liberation by the resistance and a five-ship Starfleet force, including the Enterprise, the Defiant, the Tulwar, the Scimitar, and the Katana, occurred in The Battle of Betazed.

Riker and Troi meeting when he was assigned to Betazed was established in "Encounter at Farpoint" and detailed in TNG: Imzadi by Peter David.

Lwaxana's pregnancy by the Tavnian Jeyel, and that the baby was male, was established in "The Muse" (DS9). The child was born in TNG: Slings and Arrows Book 3: The Insolence of Office by William Leisner; his name of Barin was established in The Battle of Betazed.

Falon Wriede first appeared in A Time to Kill.

Page 48:

Troi was betrothed to Wyatt Miller (not Kevin Wyatt, as he is mistakenly called here) as a girl, and almost married him in "Haven."

Page 52:

Riker's problems with his father Kyle were established in "The Icarus Factor" (TNG), which is where Kyle was introduced. Kyle was killed in A Time to Hate.

General Gyero Minza was introduced in A Time to Kill. He was captured and interrogated by Troi in A Time to Heal, but he never broke.

Page 54:

Page 58:

Earth and Vulcan made first contact in 2063, as established in First Contact.

Page 59:

Page 65:

The Ontalians threatened to leave the Federation in A Time to be Born and A Time to Die, due to the events at the Rashanar battle site, and Picard's censure was in part done to placate the Ontalians and keep them from leaving.

Page 67:

The Federation's relief efforts to Cardassia, which was decimated in "What You Leave Behind" by the Dominion, began in DS9: Avatar Book 1 by S.D. Perry. The setbacks in their recovery were hinted at in "The Calling" by Andrew J. Robinson (DS9: Prophecy and Change).

President Jaresh-Inyo declared martial law in "Homefront" (DS9), but it was due to manipulation on the part of Admiral Leyton, as revealed in "Paradise Lost" (DS9). Jaresh-Inyo was out of office by "Extreme Measures" (DS9), and Zife was established as his replacement in A Time to Kill.

Page 73:

There was considerable upheaval on the Trill homeworld after the events of Unity and "Trill: Unjoined" by Michael A. Martin & Andy Mangels (Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Volume 2).

Page 80:

Captain Benjamin Sisko first appeared as a commander in "Emissary," where his love for baseball was established, as was his place as a religious figure on Bajor. He married Captain Kasidy Yates in "Till Death Do Us Part" (DS9); Yates was first seen in "Family Business," where her brother's participation on the Pike City Pioneers baseball team was established.

Sisko's son Jake started writing for FNS shortly before "Call to Arms." His father Joseph's New Orleans restaurant was established in "Homefront."

That the London Kings were the winning team in the last World Series was established in "If Wishes Were Horses" (DS9), as was Buck Bokai's game-winning homer. That they played the Yankees was established in "One Small Step" (VOY). That the final game was at Yankee Stadium is a conceit of the author's, whose dedicated Yankee fandom is well established.

Sisko was the commander of Deep Space 9, which was at the forefront of the war effort. Sisko led the fleet that took Cardassia Prime, the decisive victory in the war, in "What You Leave Behind."

Page 82:

That the Statue of Liberty still stands in the 24th century was established in "Safe Harbors" by Howard Weinstein (Tales of the Dominion War).

Page 87:

The Breen attacked Earth and destroyed the Golden Gate Bridge in "The Changing Face of Evil" (DS9).

Page 88:

The Federation signed a treaty with the Cardassians two years prior to "The Wounded" (TNG), though their oppression of Bajor, established in "Ensign Ro" (TNG), continued for some time, until "Chain of Command Part 1" (TNG).

The Federation came down on the Cardassians' side in the Klingon-Cardassian conflict begun in "The Way of the Warrior," which sundered the Federation-Klingon alliance. Cardassia then joined the Dominion in "By Inferno's Light" (DS9).

Klingon conquest was established in their very first appearance in "Errand of Mercy" (TOS). That they still conquer worlds was established in "The Mind's Eye" (TNG), Diplomatic Implausibility, GKN: A Good Day to Die by Keith R.A. DeCandido, and Honor Bound.

Page 89:

The Children of San-Tarah were conquered by the Klingons in Honor Bound. The Brenlekki were conquered in A Good Day to Die.

Page 91:

Admiral Norah Satie first appeared in "The Drumhead" (TNG), where she came out of retirement to investigate an act of sabotage on the Enterprise-D. She went back into retirement, this time in disgrace, after that episode.

Page 97:

Establishing that Alexander never left the embassy is the only way to reconcile Alexander's line in "Firstborn" (TNG) that he'd never set foot on the Klingon homeworld with the fact that he spent the first few years of his life being raised by the Federation ambassador to Qo'noS, who would have spent most of her time on the Klingon homeworld. However, insisting that Alexander not leave the embassy confines was wholly in character for K'Ehleyr.

Page 98:

Alexander mediated a dispute on Aluwna in the so-called "Genesis sector" in Genesis Force.

Page 100:

K'Ehleyr died in Worf's arms while Alexander looked on in "Reunion."

Alexander refused to kill a downed foe in "Firstborn." Unknown to him, K'mtar was actually a future version of himself, who travelled back in time to avert a tragedy.

Page 103:

A coup was led against Martok by Morjod, backed by his mother Gothmara, during which the Great Hall was destroyed, in DS9: The Left Hand of Destiny Book 1 by J.G. Hertzler & Jeffrey Lang. Martok reclaimed the chancellor's chair and killed Morjod and Gothmara in DS9: The Left Hand of Destiny Book 2 by J.G. Hertzler & Jeffrey Lang.

Page 104:

Page 107:

The sub-subbasement was completely cleaned out at the end of A Time to Kill.

Page 109:

Kl'rt's accusations only have a passing resemblance to reality. K'mpec's killer in "Reunion" was never revealed, though Duras's responsibility for it has always been assumed; either way, it wasn't Worf. Worf was the one who found the clone of Kahless and convinced Gowron to install him as emperor in "Rightful Heir."

Page 113:

Lubbockian slime devils were first mentioned in Diplomatic Implausibility, and have nothing to do with the author's miserable trip to Lubbock, Texas in 1998. Really. Honest.

Page 127:

Montgomery Scott first appeared in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (TOS). He served as the chief engineer on the Enterprise until its destruction in Star Trek III, where he was promoted to captain and assigned to the Excelsior. He was later assigned to the Enterprise-A for its entire time of service, from Star Trek IV until shortly after Star Trek VI. After the Enterprise-A was decommissioned, he retired. Shortly after the launch of the Enterprise-B in Generations, he met Ensign Matt Franklin in a pub, and was convinced by him to ride on his ship, the Jenolen, as established in Engines of Destiny by Gene DeWeese.

Page 128:

Scott's crash and transporter trickery to "freeze" himself for over seven decades was chronicled in "Relics" (TNG).

Scott spent time on Risa as a greeter in NF: Renaissance by Peter David and SCE: The Future Begins by Steve Mollmann & Michael Schuster. He travelled to Romulus to aid Ambassador Spock in TNG: Crossover by Michael Jan Friedman. His aid during the Dominion War was established in "Safe Harbors," and his taking over the S.C.E. during the war was established in The Belly of the Beast.

Page 129:

Ross offered Scott the S.C.E. position in The Future Begins.

Leonard McCoy first appeared in "The Corbomite Maneuver" (TOS). He was the chief medical officer on the Enterprise and Enterprise-A. He remained a prominent member of the Starfleet medical community throughout the 24th century, eventually attaining the rank of admiral, as established in "Encounter at Farpoint." His inspection tour with Scott during the Breen attack was chronicled in "Safe Harbors."

Page 130:

That Scott was present at the Khitomer Accords was established in Star Trek VI; indeed, he singlehandedly stopped an assassin who planned to kill Chancellor Azetbur in that movie. He was also part of the Enterprise crew during "Arena."

Page 132:

James T. Kirk first appeared in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" as the captain of the Enterprise, under whom Scott served on both that ship and the Enterprise-A; Scott was also there when Kirk was believed killed on the Enterprise-B in Generations. "Mirror, Mirror" (TOS) was one of the rare times when Scott called Kirk "Jim."

Page 135:

Dr. Toby Russell first appeared in "Ethics" (TNG), during which she butted heads with Crusher over a medical procedure.

McCoy's friendship with Crusher was seen in both The Lost Era: Catalyst of Sorrows by Margaret Wander Bonanno and "Mirror Eyes" by Heather Jarman & Jeffrey Lang (Tales of the Dominion War).

Sabin Genestra first appeared in "The Drumhead," where he aided Satie in her witch-hunt aboard the Enterprise-D.

Page 139:

The Sugihara was first mentioned in SCE: Fatal Error by Keith R.A. DeCandido. The ship was named for Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania who issued visas that helped more than two thousand Lithuanian Jews to freedom during World War II.

Page 140:

Captain Janna Demitrijian first appeared as commanding officer of the Sugihara in SCE: Cold Fusion by Keith R.A. DeCandido.

Ambassador K'mtok, the hawkish new Klingon Ambassador to the Federation, was appointed between A Time to Kill and A Time to Heal.

Page 141:

The picture of Worf and Jadzia was taken during "You Are Cordially Invited..." The picture of Worf and Alexander was first seen in "The Way of the Warrior," and was taken at some point during Alexander's time on the Enterprise-D.

Page 142:

Worf's service on the Aldrin between his Academy graduation and his assignment to the Enterprise-D was established in "Revelations" by Keith R.A. DeCandido (NF: No Limits).

Page 145:

Mogh was first mentioned in "Sins of the Father," which was when Worf challenged the High Council's ruling against him at Khitomer and then was discommendated. Mogh first appeared in The Art of the Impossible, which is also where his mate, and Worf's mother, Kaasin was named, and where it was established that Worf was named for his grandfather, who appeared as a military litigator in Star Trek VI.

Worf convinced Martok to let the Enterprise-E accompany the Klingon fleet moving on Tezwa in A Time to Kill.

Page 147:

Councillor Kopek first appeared in A Time to Kill, where Worf coerced him into providing the prefix codes for the Klingon fleet about to attack Tezwa.

Page 148:

The clone of Kahless first appeared to Worf on Boreth, and was made emperor, in "Rightful Heir."

Page 149:

Along with Worf, Alexander, Drex, and several others, Kahless aided Martok in his re-taking of the chancellorship from Morjod in The Left Hand of Destiny Book 2. At the end of that book, he took a leave of absence, but his presence within the empire in Homecoming implies that he came back some time between those two books.

The mobile emitter first appeared in "Future's End Part 2" (VOY), a piece of technology from the 29th century that was stolen by a time-travelling 20th-century tycoon named Henry Starling and given to Voyager's Emergency Medical Hologram when that ship travelled to 1996 Earth and encountered Starling. The EMH kept the device after Voyager was returned to the 24th-century Delta Quadrant, and brought it back to the Alpha Quadrant with him when Voyager returned home in "Endgame" (VOY).

Page 150:
