Allegiance!

Hi folks! As I've said a bunch of times, Allegiance, the next book in the Legacy series, is not my book (the only one of the series that isn't). It's Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold's book. But! Since you guys are all over here, it makes sense for me to continue updates.

However, there are lots of things I really can't answer. So ask your questions about Allegiance in the comments to this post and Melissa and Amy will reply. Go on! Ask anything, even if it's spoilery, as I'm not sure how far they'll answer spoilers.

-- Jo

I would like to know the previous names of Queen Death and The Old One. Thanks! :)

The Old One was known as Ashes in his youth. But he's almost forgotten the person he was then.

Queen Death... We haven't settled on her original name yet. The Old One named her Death for her resemblance to her ancestress, because he saw in her a chance for the Wraith to survive these new threats - the Replicators, the Lanteans, the Genii.

Is Death related to Coldamber, or has she latched on to a lucky circumstance?

I don't think it's too spoilery to say that she is a descendant....

I have no questions about Allegiance yet I'm a little behind everyone on this just started The LOST, but I do have several questions about Homecoming and comments. How would I go about asking them?

By the way...Homecoming was AWESOME!!!

Just been re-reading Homecoming, and another character caught my attention - Nechayev, he of the "contrarian" attitude, yet able to hit it off with Sheppard. I think he put some effort into making that connection. Will he be re-appearing in Allegiance, perhaps with his eye on Woolsey's job?

Nechayev does reappear, though I believe that scene is in the following book, Avengers, being - canny. Very, very canny.

Suspicious?!
What do I need to change to stop being labeled as "suspicious"? Awaiting Moderation is one thing, but what am I suspected of? Is it due to using the Open ID portal?

Re: Suspicious?!
I'm sorry -- it's the open id. Because of getting blacklisted on spam lists and having everybody's comments stopped a few weeks ago, LJ is now dumping everything in open ID into a filter. I'm catching them as fast as I can and marking them "this is not spam" but that's all I can do!

The Lost Tribe?
I'm wondering if the Lost Tribe return at any point during Legacy?

Re: The Lost Tribe?
No, I'm afraid not! It would be interesting to see them return in the future, though. I'd also love to see more of the Travelers, who didn't end up having a role in the Legacy plot. But we really wanted room to explore the Wraith and several groups of Pegasus Galaxy humans in depth, rather than trying to pack in everybody we ever saw on the show.

release date delayed?
Hi, first of all, I'd like to say thank you to all 3 of you. The Legacy series is such a wonderful idea and helps soften the blow that there weren't any movies.

I was wondering if the release date had been delayed for Allegiance. I can't find the book on Amazon anymore and I don't see it yet on Stargatenovels.com.

Thanks again!
Manic

Re: release date delayed?
Late answer, sorry! I've been trying to keep things up to date on my LJ, but missed this over here.

It looks as though Allegiance is going to be delayed - Amy and I haven't gotten the final edits back from MGM yet, and the book can't go to press until that happens. We're going to miss the June 30 release, and I'm thinking the earliest possible date would be mid-July, assuming we get the edits right away. I'll try to keep everyone updated as we get more information.

And thank you! That means a lot!

StarGate Atlantis Legacy Series
I am totally liking this series! I consider it to be the should have been Season 6 for StarGate Atlantis. I have one question so far for StarGate Atlantis Legacy Book 3: Allegiance. By any chance do you know when it will be approved by MGM and ready to be published? More likely, when will it be available to buy? Lastly, I am a major fan of John and Teyla, I always thought that they would make a lovely couple and now your books are actually bringing that close to a possibility! :) Will John and Teyla eventually start dating or get married? They already seem perfect with each other and John already did call her his wife. Kanaan did want her (Teyla) to release him, and Torren does call John "Da". What more could John be? He already acts like a father to Torren, it is also clear that Torren likes him and from the series it is clear John likes Teyla and she likes him. I would have to say that it is a match made in heaven, or how about the Pegasus Galaxy.

Re: StarGate Atlantis Legacy Series
Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying the series!

Right now we hope (fingers crossed) that MGM will finish what they do and there will be a mid to late July publication date. It takes 3-4 weeks from when we get it back to actually get the book printed.

John and Teyla -- yes, there is more John/Teyla in Allegiance. That relationship is definitely changing and developing. I won't spoil it by telling you exactly what happens, but I think you'll like it! :)
