- This novel depicts the replacement of the TOS era Enterprise bridge module with a new version after a catastrophic explosion. This would place the events at some point before TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Motion Picture, when a new version is in place, and furthermore before the Enterprise was disassembled in TOS - The Lost Years novel: The Lost Years. However, several other sources depict the Enterprise finishing its five-year mission with the original bridge intact, including TNG novel: Crossover which shows the module being put into the Starfleet Museum. Further confusing the chronology of this is the cover image, depicting the refit Enterprise from after The Motion Picture.
