New blurbs.... Including a 7 of 9/James Kirk team-up

8of5 posted some new blurbs from S&S today, including No Time Like the Past, a TOS book by Greg Cox featuring a team-up of James Kirk & 7of9. Don't believe me? Read it for yourself.
No Time Like The Past wrote:
Stardate 6422.5. A diplomatic mission to the planet Yusub erupts in violence when ruthless Orion raiders attempt to disrupt the crucial negotiations by force. Caught in the midst of tense and dangerous situation, Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S Enterprise finds an unexpected ally in the form of an enigmatic stranger who calls herself “Annika Seven.”

Stardate 53786.1. Seven of Nine is taking part in an archaeological expedition on an obscure planetoid in the Delta Quadrant when a disastrous turn of events puts Voyager’s away team in jeopardy—and transports Seven across time and space to Yusub, where she comes face to face with one of Starfleet’s greatest legends.

Stardate 6422.5. Kirk knows better than most the danger that even a single castaway from the future can pose to the timeline, so he and Seven embark on a hazardous quest to return her to her own era. But there are others who crave the knowledge Seven possesses, and they will stop at nothing to obtain it—even if this means seizing control of the Enterprise!
Usually with something like I would be scared, but with someone with the skill and history of Greg Cox behind it, it has the potential pretty awesome IMO.

We also have one for Christopher L. Bennett''s Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel.

Having survived its first major crisis, the Federation turns to nation-building as Admiral Jonathan Archer works to bring the worlds of the powerful Rigel system into the young union of the United Federation of Planets. But factions both within the Federation and among its enemies oppose the alliance, and Archer will need all the skills of his former Enterprise crewmates to prevent them from plunging Rigel into a systemwide war.
Cool. I've been curious about Rigel for a while, so it'll be interesting to get a deeper look at the system.

Jeff Mariotte is behind a new TOS movie era followup to "A Private Little War" entitled Serpent in The Garden.

Early in his five-year mission commanding the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain James T. Kirk found himself caught up in a growing conflict on the planet Neural. To maintain the balance of power against a force being armed by the Klingons, he provided weapons to his friends, the Hill People. Years later, Admiral Kirk learns that the Klingon presence on the planet has grown considerably, in possible violation of the Treaty of Organia. Did his impulse as a young captain turn out disastrously wrong? Should he—could he—have done more to eliminate the Klingon threat? To find out, he embarks on a secret mission back to Neural—where he might just be the only person who can prevent an interstellar war.
I'm not sure about this one since Mariotte's last TOS book didn't get to good of a reaction around here.
He also revealed that DRGIII said in an interview that he is working on a new exploration focused book that isn't TNG, DS9, or VOY, and that features a captain her's written before. Personally, I'm hoping for a new Enterprise-B story with either of it Captains.

EDIT: Oops, turns out this was covered in another thread already. Sorry.
