USA Today is covering the release of a Star Trek book? That's pretty impressive!

They also say Endeavour is the focus of the first book, and Sagitarrius the second - even though the covers show the reverse, and the extract from "Second Nature" which they have said features Endeavour focuses on the character of Theriault, who we know is a member of the Sagitarrius crew ;p

Beautiful covers!

They're not bad, though I preferred the placeholder images we've had since this series was first announced last year.

Something I'm wondering though, the article says the first book will be released on July 22, which indeed all sites where you can order the book are listing as its release date. However, all Trek paperbacks these days are traditionally, almost exclusively released on the last Tuesday of the month, which for July would be the 29. Any reason this book is getting an earlier release? Or is something we can expect to change between now and July? For example, I remember a book from a couple of years back originally had a release date of middle of January but in the end it was out the last Tuesday of December anyway.

Maybe so it will be available at Shore Leave, where it was announced last year?

Yes, it's just been announced that Seekers will premiere at Shore Leave, along with a nonfiction book about Trek comics and an original SF/fantasy anthology.

:techman:Nice to see Usa today featuring The Seekers books .In the past they've featured other Star trek books that were best sellers.

The blurb about which crews are featured in which book has been corrected in the online edition of the story.

Those interested in a bit more detail on the story can check out my blog post about the new covers.

I can't wait to read these books. I am enjoying the Vanguard books so far, and the story flows like an episode of the series. All that is missing are establishing shots of the ships, stations and planets at the beginning of a chapter.

Great looking covers! I'm very excited for another non-Enterprise focused 23rd century series. I'm pre-ordering them now :techman:

I'm not sure that I love the covers. They look like they were drawn using colored pencils. I like full CGI ones such as the covers for The Fall.

You know, Keith Birdsong, who was the most acclaimed Trek-novel cover artist for much of the '90s, did his strikingly realistic cover art exclusively in colored pencil.
