I think the Uhura-focus comic conflicted with a couple of flashback scenes I wrote about Spock and Uhura at the Academy, and the YA Academy novels have probably done so as well. But I intentionally wrote those scenes so they could be easily deleted if there were continuity issues.

Otherwise, I don't know enough about the comics, the game, or the other guys' novels to say.

Re: Build Your Own Publishing Schedule- 2014 Edition

I'd like 2014 to have all 24th century stories. I'd also like one set in the 25th century detailing the end of Section 31. I know that is less likely at this point, but one can hope.

How about paper versions of the "Slings And Arrows" series, along with finishing the SCE, and printing the couple of e-novella's that have been released in the past few year's.

Why would Pocket ignore the 23rd Century (TOS) when it sells the best?

Well seeing as the title of the thread we are in is "Build your own Publishing schedule" and he used the words "I'd like..." I don't think it was about what Pocket should do but more what he would prefer.

Don't hold your breath. It's either a legal issue (Pocket perhaps don't have and for some reason won't aquire the rights to publish original fiction based on the new films) or some personal beef where one party is refusing to deal with the other. Either way, if we were getting those books it would have happened by now.
Doesn't Pocket/S&S publish the Academy books?
The impression I've gotten was that Bad Robot didn't want anything set between the movies that they weren't personally involved with. This isn't from any kind of specific statement, but it was the impression that I've gotten from what's been released, and a few comments here and there. Pretty much everything that's been released set after the movie has been made with Orci's involvement.

Exactly, but maybe, the title was too subtle.

Anyway, because this is my schedule, this is what I would commission.

Due to the fact I didn't like Forgotten History and in my opinion, he hasn't wrote a decent novel since The Buried Age, I'm not letting Christopher anywhere near the schedule, so that means no Rise of the Federation sequel nor anymore DtI novels. Nor would I commission anything from Michael A, Martin and Andy Mangels. Well that's what I won't do, here's what I will do:

January: A follow up to The Fall by KRAD.

February and March: A TOS duology by David Mack.

April: Some time travel shenanigans with the Ent A crew by Greg Cox.

May: A post TMP, pre TWoK story by Dayton Ward focusing on hostilities between the UFP, Klingon Empire and Romulans.

June: A Lost Era story by William Leisner.

July: Voyager operation Full Circle book five by Kirsten Beyer

August and September: A DS9 duology by David George III

October: A Titan novel by James Swallow.

November, December and January 2015: An epic trilogy in the same vain as Destiny and Cold Equations by David Mack.

A different imprint of Pocket, but yes, it's still S&S.

Bad Robot's control over the Abramsverse tie-ins applies universally, whether it's before or after the '09 movie. Just because Orci's name isn't on the YA novels doesn't mean Bad Robot isn't approving and overseeing them. (Orci doesn't even work for Bad Robot, at least not anymore. He and Kurtzman have graduated to having their own production company, K/O Paper Products, that's a production partner on Into Darkness.) Bad Robot's approach is for all the tie-ins to their continuity to be closely controlled and coordinated. And for whatever reason, they haven't chosen to include adult novels in their tie-in strategy. It doesn't matter whether they're set before or after the movie. If it were as simple as that, we could've done prequel novels just like the YA imprint did.

Indeed and looking at it, it may be a bit of an over kill.

Although think of the money, the kudos of being on the New York best sellers list five times in a year and the amount of Jack you'll have to consume for it too work.

I realized that Bad Robot had to approve the YA books, I just thought that they might have been less concerned with them since they were set before the movie. I still find it weird that they've let all of those be published, but not the adult books. The only noticeable difference was when they were set, so I thought that might have been the reason they weren't published.
I had forgotten that Orci and Kurtzman's K/O Paper Products though. Does that mean that any Abamsverse tie-ins after Into Darkness comes out would have to be approved by K/O too, or would it still just be Paramount, CBS, and Bad Robot?

I'm not really sure how it works. You'd have to talk to someone who's actually in the loop. Orci comments regularly on TrekMovie.com, and sometimes does Q&A threads, so maybe you could ask him there.

Yep, this. Title's pretty clear in soliciting OUR imagined/fantasy schedules, so we could pretty much throw in any imagined Trek-related novels we want. I wasn't even that creative when I said 24th century, was I?

Re: Build Your Own Publishing Schedule- 2014 Edition

What I'd like to see is a lot of variety-- a mix of both TV and original-to-TrekLit novels, along the lines of:

JAN: TOS
FEB: DTI by Christopher L. Bennett
MAR: TNG
APR: Corps of Engineers (a new hardcopy collection of the next uncollected stories, as well as a return of (at least one) new eBook)
MAY: JJ-verse
JUN: TITAN
JUL: DS9
AUG: AVENTINE
SEP: VOY by Kirsten Beyer
OCT: New Frontier by Peter David
NOV: ENT: Rise of the Federation by Christopher L. Bennett
DEC: a Special Event title

I enjoy all the current TrekLit authors, so besides the specific cases I mentioned above I'd be happy with whoever wrote what!

I rather like the TNG ebooks, as they feel more like episodes since they're shorter, so I'd like to see more of those thrown in as well.
