It has a problem from a chronicler's point of view, though. Many of those hooks are awkward at best in the era of T20, which is a century prior to the CT/MT/GT/MGT era of the 1100s. As a book for the 1100s, it works a bit better.

My specific beef is in Gateway, with the characterization of the Lords of Thunder next door in Lure. They were described as a looming threat in their original appearance in MTJ4, a century and a half later. While describing them in some kind of static posture of threat works for some things, the Lords of Thunder are a new feature on the starscape, only having been founded in 880. If they are a looming threat to Gateway in 1124, they are probably a lot smaller in 990. When the K'kree decide to move, they *move*. They aren't going to sit off the border of a half-conquered Human state and sneer menacingly for a century.
We are all playing different games that happen to have the same name.

"Alright. Where did that Beaker get a cred stick?"
