Vetar or Valoris Edit

I was just wondering if the Vetar was specifically named in any material after "Journey's End" as being Evek's ship. The Malibu DS9 comic, "War Games", set immediately before "Caretaker" had Evek attached to the CDS Valoris at the time. I don't have The Badlands or The Brave and the Bold to hand, so just wondered if anyone knew. Thanks in advance. --The Doctor (talk) 19:40, April 19, 2020 (UTC)

Vetar is mentioned in The Badlands, Book Two; The Brave and the Bold, Book Two and Strange New Worlds 2016 according to google books. Echoes and Refractions also, but that would seem to be an alternate reality. not sure which if any take place after JE but before or after Caretaker - i know any with Janeway and Voyager are pre-Caretaker. a followup question i'd have is how many sources clarify whether whichever ship Evek was aboard actually survived the opening of Caretaker or do any cite them as losses -- captainmike Wiki-wordmark 19:54, April 19, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads-up on Google Books. Having a speed read of the preview pages for The Badlands, it would appear that it's set during "Caretaker" and confirms that the Vetar was the ship from that episode. It has Voyager coming to the Vetar's assistance and Tom Paris is aboard. A concrete reference and placement. As for The Brave and the Bold it appears to take place before Tuvok was infiltrated into Chakotay's crew so there's wiggle room. Could it be argued that the Valoris was just one of many ships under Evek's command, he was the head of the Fourth Order after all? The Vetar could just be his flagship. --The Doctor (talk) 20:12, April 19, 2020 (UTC)
That certainly seems plausible - if he was a flag officer he'd have multiple ships ferrying him around and Valoris could be a separate ship. Maybe both could have a note that there's a vague possibility they're alternate names for one vessel, but i don't think there's overwhelming cause to compbine them. -- captainmike Wiki-wordmark 22:33, April 19, 2020 (UTC)
