Yeah, I'm so tired of yet more 5 year mission 'everything back in the sandbox' TOS novels. That's no criticism of Tony who may produce a great story, but if TOS books sell (and they obviously do) there's loads of gaps to fill elsewhere.

I'll no doubt buy it but compared to the depth of development of the 24thC. I can't get excited about this.

I think the fact that Vanguard sold should point the way forward...
According to Pocket Books, TOS novels set during the five year mission are the best selling Trek novels, which is why so many are published a year.
I?n which case, it's time to expand the 23rd century and have interconnectedness (i.e. like Vanguard) the way the 24th century does.
Thing is, I think the fact that they aren't interconnected is why they sell so well. It attracts more casual readers than the 24th century novels can.

The blurb hasn't much changed from July:

As I said then, won't be interested if "Unexpected" means klingon/romulan.

Horta's an instabuy though!
The title makes me think it's the Hortas.
