Well that in the cover is just a office complex, if you look at TMP you see it shares many similarities with that one.

Even its redresses were not made shipyards.

The books coming out these days are all sharing a continuity wrapped closely around and between the series we saw on TV, filling in blanks, and respecting eachother's soft canon, gone are the days of pocket books or Shatnerverse.

The Lost Eras books fill in a lot of the time between Undiscovered Country and TNG, DS9 effectively had a "season 8", the Romulan War was covered and some things from Enteprise Retconned to conform with older established canon, there's some stuff leading up to the Destiny Books, Destiny books themselves, corps of engineers books, some stuff about the Occupation, Section 31, DTI, and after Destiny, the Typhon Pact books. Also, Titan and Aventine etc.

All in all, the more recent expansions of the Trek Universe fit in well with the established canon, and mesh well with eachother and the things we saw on screen, if you're after more Trek, it's really, really good.

I haven't read that book yet, but it's the second part of another book which I also haven't read, I think the furthest I've gotten into Typhon Pact is "rough beasts of Empire". But the first of the books in the two parter shown in the OP's picture has DS9 on the cover, so I wouldn't rule out it's destruction, since so far this is the "latest" point in the established book timeline, but I think it's more likely an additional facility, either on our or their side of the wormhole.

This may help tose looking to embark on more "continuing voyages" without running across spoilers, but also coming in at "the right point" so to speak.
