Star Trek: The Lost Era: One Constant Star
 
This was just shared on the Star Trek Books Community facebook. Release date is May 27, 2014 according to Amazon.

"An original novel set in “The Lost Era” time period between Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation!

When Captain Demora Sulu leads the crew of U.S.S. Enterprise-B on a mission near Tzenkethi space, they explore Rejarris II, a planet they cannot explain. A strange structure on the surface could hold answers, but when a landing party transports down to study it, chaos erupts. After communication fails with one officer and another is horribly injured, Captain Sulu deems the planet too dangerous to continue exploring. She decides to leave Rejarris II, but not until she can retrieve her lost crew member. But when contact is ultimately severed with the captain, a Tzenkethi force subsequently appears. Could they be behind the mysteries on the planet, or the disappearances of the Enterprise officers? Regardless, will Sulu's crew be able stand up to them long enough to find and retrieve their captain and the other missing personnel?

Once, John Harriman commanded Enterprise-B with Demora Sulu by his side as his first officer. Eight years after stepping down as a starship captain—in the wake of the Tomed Incident—Harriman now serves as an admiral based out of Helaspont Station, on the edge of the Tzenkethi Coalition. When he receives a mysterious message from Rejarris II, he realizes that he might hold the key to finding his former crewmate. In choosing to help recover Demora Sulu, though, he could risk losing everything he holds dear. What price is Harriman willing to pay to attempt to rescue his longtime friend?"

I've had a real tough time getting into George's last couple outings, so I'll wait to buy it until I see some reviews.

I agree that Revelation and Dust could have been better (I have not read Rough Beasts of Empire or Plagues of Night/Raise the Dawn) but I loved, loved Serpents Among the Ruins. I'm extremely happy to see DRG3 returning to the Enterprise-B era. If it's even half as good as Serpents was then I'll be very pleased.

I've really enjoyed learning more about Harriman through the various books that have focused on him. Serpents Among the Ruins was great so the Lost Era might be George's wheelhouse.

I bought Serpents some time ago but haven't read it yet. Now there's an extra incentive to read it just before One Constant Star comes out. :bolian:

Very excited about this one: Serpents was a wonderfully well-written novel - perhaps the most interesting of the original Lost Era novels, stylistically and thematically. Looking forward to more of redcoat-clad drama.

Absolutely agreed. This is an insta-buy for me. I love the era and the author w/ this era.

Didn't Harriman resign from Starfleet at the end of Serpents or am I misremembering things? It has been a decade since I read it so that's certainly possible. Of course, given this book is set eight years after Serpents, that's plenty of time for Harriman to resign and then decide to return to Starfleet.

My review:

It's going to be at least good. So buy it, read it, and enjoy it.

You should read these, You are missing out on two very good books.

They're on my list, as are a ton of other Trek lit books I haven't had a chance to get to, but I decided to get caught up on the most recent storyline first (The Fall), instead of constantly being behind. Between that and catching up on Vanguard I haven't been able to make time for any other books yet. But I'll get to them eventually. :techman:

I asked DRGIII about this description after I saw it earlier, and judging by his reaction I have a feeling this isn't the final one.

Well, I haven't had any issues with DRGIII's latest outings, and now he's back for the E-B, Demora AND Harriman.... I'm game!! :D

I am beyond pumped for this novel! Serpents Among the Ruins is a top-5 book for me (if not my favorite TrekLit). My only concern is that Serpents set the bar so high, it's going to be tough for this one to match it. But, imagine how awesome it would be for it to surpass it! :bolian:

This is fantastic! I've been waiting for DRG3 to return to Demora and Harriman. I loved both Serpents, and the short story in the Captain's Table anthology. Instant buy for sure :techman:

Nah. He actually explicitly states in Serpents he's not retiring from Starfleet, just the captaincy of the Enterprise-B.
