TOS: The Red Ensign by DRGIII - January 2013

New listing for an Original Series novel, written by David R. George III, at Simon & Schuster:

http://books.simonandschuster.com/St.../9781476700229

As the "February" release (out end of January), this should therefore be the first release on the 2013 publishing schedule.

Not sure about this - the last three DRGIII novels have been rather disappointing IMO, and certainly not up to his best. I shall see how the Typhon Pact duology holds up before deciding whether to pre-order.

It's the epic tale of an accident involving Chekov and the ketchup dispenser in the mess hall...

Well, this is Star Trek, so a malfunctioning ketchup dispenser could undoubtedly butterfly into a quadrant-spanning emergency ... always trouble with high-stakes technology like that.

I guess that puts an end to the "S&S lost the licence and won't be doing 2013's books" rumour that there was a thread about on here a month or so back.

Of course, I'm sure it's "The Red Ensign" in this sense:

Very interesting. Unlike some people I've liked pretty much all of his stuff that I read (including Rough Beasts...), so I'll be looking forward to this.

DRG III could produce a novel like that and make it epic.

I'm totally a DRG3 fan. I'm happy he's got another one coming. TOS isn't my favorite, but I'll read.

It'd also run 600+ pages. Not that I'd mind.

Or how about an epic mini-series set in the Heinz Expanse, showing an eclectic group of characters trying to solve the mystery of the meta-recipe?

With a few saucy scenes?
