New TP: Seize the Fire description
 
I don't know if this is the final description or not, but I did find a new one for Seize the Fire in S&S digital catalog.
Quote:

Shortly after making the stunning revelation that it has joined with Federation’s newest adversary—a coalition of galactic powers known as the Typhon Pact—the Gorn Hegemony suffers an ecological disaster. Fortunately, the Gorn had already been investigating traces of an ancient but powerful “quick terraforming” technology left behind by a long-vanished race — a dead civilization that may be responsible for habitability of many of the worlds on the Gorn frontier and beyond. When the U.S.S. Titan begins pursuing this potent technology as well, in the hopes of using it to heal the many grievous wounds sustained by the Federation, it is unclear how dangerous such planet-altering technology can be, even when used with the best of intentions….

Sounds like fun, as Kirk once said. Man I am excited about this mini-series if you want to call it that.

Completely agree.

I can barely wait for October and Zero Sum Game.

Same here, which is why I've been checking S&S a couple times a weak for updates.

The one I'm most looking forward to, simply because I've been waiting for a resolution since Andor: Paradigm, is Paths of Disharmony, although the series as a whole is something I've been waiting to read since it was announced.

Sounds like some ancient race managed to get their own Genesis Device to work.

I just checked the Gallery catalog, and they do have descriptions for Blind Man's Bluff, and Shattered Light, but neither say much about the books, so I don't know if I should bother posting them.

Blind Man's Bluff
Quote:

Following the dramatic events seen in the previous novels, After the Fall, Missing in Action, and Treason, Captain Mackenzie Calhoun and the crew of the U.S.S. Excalibur now face an uncertain future, as their lives and the very fate of Sector 221-G are thrown into utter chaos. With a storyline concurrent with The Next Generation, and picking up at a point where there have been significant changes, new and old readers alike will be captivated by this series.
I'm wondering if the concurrent with TNG thing will mean that they've jumped into the post-Destiny time-frame.
Shattered Light doesn't say anything specific about the stories, but here goes anyways and says there are six story's while there are actually only three:
Quote:

What began as the exploration of one Star Trek parallel universe explodes with the introduction of six new alternate realities.
Set across history, touching upon every series, and written by a variety of Star Trek authors, each story in Myriad Universes: Shattered Light presents a unique alternate vision of the Star Trek universe, taking pivotal moments from its history and extrapolating the shocking changes that follow those deviations.
In these divergent realms, known history is bent, like white light through a prism—broken into a boundless spectrum of what-might-have-beens. But in those myriad universes, what might have been…is actually what happened.

I'm guessing that NF will indeed jump into the post-Destiny timeframe (skipping over the events of Destiny itself, where the Excalibur was mentioned), and feature or relate to the Typhon Pact...

Didn't we knew that text about Shattered Lights already and already guessed that it was just a promo text for the first two Myriad Universes books, hence the six new realities?
