I'm really looking forward to finding out where this falls in the chronology; I'd say that given the inclusion of Nog in a TNG novel, this is definitely after Nog's commissioning, the novel's in the Enterprise-E era, and the Galaxy class on the cover is the USS Challenger, not the Enterprise-D. What do you think? tour86rocker 04:59, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

It's right at the leading edge of the current prose-timeline; the article already says 2382, which I think is accurate from what the author has noted online. --8of5 06:44, March 18, 2011 (UTC)
According to this post by David McIntee over at the TrekBBS it's set in February 2383. --Defcon 12:21, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Shows how good my thinking is then :P Only two months out! --8of5 12:28, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

2383 sounds accurate from what I've read so far. The events have to take place after POD due to LaForge's promotion not being mentioned. - Nx1701g 03:11, April 2, 2011 (UTC)
