The term "relaunch" has never appeared on cover texts or matter regarding the publications of these series. The term is simply used to differentiate the change to an unnumbered, serialized format after a series finale gives the series a creative direction. There are no examples available of any official [[Pocket Books]] publicity referring to these series as "relaunches".

With these latest ongoing series, many multi-series crossovers have unified the direction of the books with themed developments that affect the direction of each series, meaning that many of the series are now synchronized chronologically based on the release order, with some flashbacks answering incomplete premises. The ''{{sT|Enterprise}}'' relaunch is considered to be books that take place after the television finale, but they often have links to the overall continuity of the other crossovers, even though they are in a vastly different time period.

Prior to the relaunches, the numbered novels were often stand-alone stories that took place during a previous era of [[canon]] production, meaning the authors did not have license to make drastic alterations to the standard series format and continuity. For the relaunch series, stand-alone stories often are published as collections of [[short stories]] and [[novella]]s rather than being released as individual books. In the previous numbered novels, it was rare for collections or [[omnibus]] editions to be released.
