Half a year after the well-received Vanguard finale Dayton Ward
once more takes a turn of sorts at the saga's wheel to deliver us a coda, the ebook-exclusive novella In Tempest's Wake
. This was apparently originally slated to carry the TOS
label, reflecting the fact that the crew of the USS Enterprise
takes center seat here in a retelling of the events of Storming Heaven
from their point of view, but ultimately joins Mr. Mack's
work under the same Star Trek
The Simon & Schuster page still hasn't been updated with the official blurb, but StarTrek.com posted one a while ago. Taken from there:
The U.S.S. Enterprise and other starships that participated in the final battle in the Taurus Reach have been remanded to a remote starbase. While evacuees from the station are processed and the ships repaired, restocked, and re-staffed as needed, Captain James T. Kirk is ordered to report to Admiral Heihachiro Nogura, Starbase 47’s second and final commanding officer. Through flashbacks intercut with the ongoing conversation between Kirk and Nogura, the Enterprise’s involvement in the last days of Operation Vanguard—and the conflict between Starfleet and Tholian forces at Starbase 47—is now told from the perspective of Kirk and his crew.
Sadly no excerpt either!
