* ShoutOut: A little bizarrely, there's a notable PinkyAndTheBrain reference in ''A Ceremony of Losses'', likely because the characters in question - scientists - are denounced by some as screwing with nature:

A series of five novels in the Franchise/StarTrekNovelVerse. Continuing on from the events of ''Literature/StarTrekTyphonPact'' and ''StarTrekColdEquations'', the series is set over a sixty day period, with each novel telling a fairly self-contained story as various characters in different locations live through the tumultuous time period in question. The series primarily concerns itself with the Federation and Starfleet's sense of identity, at a critical juncture in their history. The decade since the end of the Dominion War has been a rough one - things might be stabilizing, but where does the Federation go from here, what lessons should it have learned - and which should it ''not'' have learned?

* AHandfulForAnEye: [[spoiler: Bashir]] gets a faceful of theragen (a nasty Klingon nerve agent) during a fight with his assassin. The only thing that kept him from being blinded permanently was that he was already in a sickbay for treatment.



* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: When [[spoiler: Seth Maslan]] comes to assassinate [[spoiler: Julian Bashir]], he says that he'll set it up so that it looks like he was protecting himself from a dangerous rogue officer who broke loose.



* WhamLine: The entire series hinges on one: [[spoiler: "President Nanietta Bacco was dead"]].

* InJoke: Bennett is a popular name for Starfleet admirals, although one should keep their mouth shut about that when Akaar's in a bad mood, it seems.

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: An InUniverse example - ''The Crimson Shadow'' is a Cardassian WhatIf novel where they conquer the Romulan Empire, the Klingon Empire and ultimately the Federation. Parmak sees it as a horrible book, full of the militaristic Cardassian jingoism that destroyed the Union. Garak believes it's a more thoughtful and subtle story, that ultimately presents the Cardassian domination of the Alpha Quadrant as a ''bad'' thing, and hope lying in a Federation citizen who doesn't give in.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: "Risk is my business" is (more or less) one of Kirk's most famous lines, here appropriated by the captain of a one-man civilian freighter and not a mighty starship.
