^Right. The game and the novels have different needs and somewhat different audiences, so it only makes sense for them to strike different courses.

Re: Cold Equations by David Mack???

Blurbs for all three novels are now up at the Simon & Schuster website (the one for the third book went up first, a few days ago):

The Persistence of Memory wrote:
The start of a new trilogy by the national bestselling author of Star Trek: Destiny!

A brazen heist: Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew race to find out who has stolen one of the Galaxy’s most important technological achievements—and for what sinister purpose.

A broken promise: One desperate man risks everything for what he abandoned decades ago—but is he ready to pay the price for redemption?

A daring mission: Against overwhelming odds, and with time running out, Commander Worf has only one chance to avert a disaster—but how high a price will he pay for victory?

The second book in a new trilogy by the national bestselling author of Star Trek: Destiny!

Three years after the disastrous final Borg Invasion, a bitter cold war against the Typhon Pact has pushed Starfleet’s resources to the breaking point. Now the rise of a dangerous new technology threatens to destroy the Federation from within.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew answer a distress call, only to become targets in a deadly game of deception. To protect a vital diplomatic mission, they must find a way to identify the spies hiding in their midst, before it’s too late. But Worf soon realizes thecrew’s every move has been predicted: Someone is using them as pawns. And the closer they get to exposing their enemy, the deeper they spiral into its trap…

The climax of a new trilogy by the national bestselling author of Star Trek: Destiny!

At the center of the Galaxy, a planet-sized Machine of terrifying power and unfathomable purpose hurls entire star systems into a supermassive black hole. Wesley Crusher, now a full-fledged Traveler, knows the Machine must be stopped…but he has no idea how. He enlists the help of Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew, who also fail to halt the unstoppable alien juggernaut’s destructive labors. But they soon divine the Machine’s true purpose, which threatens to exterminate all life in the Milky Way Galaxy. With time running out, Picard realizes he knows of only one person who might be able to stop the Machine in time to avert a galactic catastrophe—but he has no idea how to find him.

Check with The Illusive Man?

Alternately, track down River Song.

Joking aside, these sound great!

I wonder how Wesley will be written - we all think of him as a young scamp but he's 36, 37 (???) within the books now.

Not just that, he is essentially an extra dimensional being. There have been one or two passages in other novels, where Beverly was reflecting on how it was difficult to relate to Wesley these days.

There was John Vornholt writing his POV in A Time Be Born and A Time To Die, which was a terrible duology!
