From the series bible for Star Trek: Seekers
Unlike the Star Trek Vanguard saga, Seekers is not intended to be a sweeping, serialized tale. Most books would be “stand-alone” tales within the shared continuity, though the premise will allow for occasional “team-up” or multi-book adventures….
Neither will Seekers emulate Vanguard’s “dark and gritty” vision of the Star Trek universe. … Seekers will present tales of exploration that capture the wonder and whimsy, the humor and adventure of the original series, while also staying true to its optimism and ethics.
In short, if Vanguard represents the dark chapter of TOS history, Seekers will be the return of the light, the revival of hope, the fulfillment of the Federation’s promise on its frontier.
Something to look forward to. While I still enjoy the 24th century books, they have been a bit on the dark side for a while. Seekers
, along with TOS, will balance things out.
