^Although it's clearly in a different continuity from my Ex Machina/The Darkness Drops Again/Forgotten History post-TMP material.

It's cool their revisiting that period, but it's a shame it won't be in continuity with Christopher's stuff.

Oh, huh, Scott Harrison is not someone I'd've expected to pop up in the Star Trek world.

Is that such a bad thing though? You yourself have said writers do not need to keep everything in the same continuity, or does that not apply to your stories?

Well yay for Treklit still drawing from outside sources. I mean don't get me wrong I love the Usual Gang of Idiots that we've got writing books but it's nice to get a bit of fresh blood from time to time even if it's only for a book or two.

*raising an eyebrow* I believe you are making assumptions based on no evidence. All that Christopher did was state a fact. He did not offer any opinion on that fact, either positive or negative.

Considering how concerned many Trek fans are with continuity and given that the question was likely to end up being asked I tend to suspect that he was basically seeking to answer the question in advance of it being asked knowing that it would be.

^Right. I never suggested it was a bad thing; I merely pointed out that it was the case, for the sake of clarity.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

The Simon and Schuster catalogue has been updated with blurbs for all four of the 2014 novels so far announced. I find myself suddenly looking forward to Greg's novel a lot more!

Voyager: Protectors, by Kirsten Beyer (February)
Following the destruction of four fleet vessels at the hands of the Omega Continuum, the U.S.S. Voyager and U.S.S. Demeter set course for a region of the Delta Quadrant far beyond anything previously explored. Captain Chakotay is determined to prove to Starfleet Command that the fleet’s ongoing mission is vital to Federation interests…and the key to doing so may lie in a distress call Voyager received nine years earlier, but could not investigate. Meanwhile, Vice Admiral Kathryn Janeway is recalled to the Alpha Quadrant for an evaluation period to determine her next assignment. Given the trauma she has recently endured, Admiral Akaar, Starfleet’s Commander-in-Chief, questions Janeway’s fitness to command the fleet. Janeway’s primary concern remains the fleet’s safety. For their mission to continue, she must find a way to secure the resources they require. But the uncertainty of her superior officers has left her powerless to act in their best interests...
TOS: No Time Like The Past, by Greg Cox (March)
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!
Enterprise: Rise of the Federation - Tower of Babel, by Christopher L. Bennett (April)
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.
TOS: Serpents in the Garden, by Jeff Mariotte (May)
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.

Oh, cool... Greg has hinted that his book would relate to a future series, but that's all we've gotten so far. Looks like Seven's story starts in sixth season of Voyager.

Hmmm. I might give Greg's book a shot. I usually don't read 5 year mission stuff but this could be an exception.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

As i'm not usually into the 5YM books, I'm extatic to find out that Jeff Mariotte's Serpents in the Garden will feature Admiral Kirk post-TOS! I recently finished reading a few of the Lost Years books, and i've been craving more trouble-shooting Kirk ever since. I wonder which year this book takes place in... Hopefully after the second 5YM before TWOK. We'll see

Not so fast Mr Cox - a Voyager TOS crossover - are you barking mad ?

I can't wait !

Plus new Voyager, more Rise of the Federation and an Admiral Kirk story too. Excellent.

I actually had a lot of fun writing Seven, whom I had never written before. (I wrote my one and only VOYAGER novel back in the Kes era.)
