Revelation and Dust is the first book in the five book crossover event Star Trek: The Fall. It was written by David R. George III and was released in August of 2013. While being a crossover event, it must be understood to the reader that not every book in “The Fall” features crossover characters. For example, Revelation and Dust focuses on the characters from Deep Space Nine, and includes characters like political leaders and military leaders who show up in all the books. However, if it was not originally stated that this was a crossover, one might assume going into this book that it’s specifically a Deep Space Nine book.
