It was my understanding that those generally do get printed in trade form eventually.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

The Corps of Engineers and Slings and Arrows lend themselves to print collections but the others don't, and at this rate it will be a long time before there are enough titles for the other series to collect.

I wonder if a new 'catch all' title like 'Star Trek - Tales of Starfleet' would work for printing the assorted ebooks ?

I mean, was it ever explained when Spock became Captain and Kirk returned to the Admiralty?
The New Earth series contains narrative that establishes Spock being promoted to captain prior to Kirk's return to the admiralty. The former continued to serve as first officer while Kirk remained aboard Enterprise, however.

That wasn't my understanding when I reread the appropriate passages in Wagon Train to the Stars this morning - my understanding was that Kirk had already been promoted back to the admiralty (and Spock taking the center seat); Kirk stepped back aboard the Enterprise as captain only for the duration of the Belle Terre mission.
The thing is, I don't know that it was ever an issue of his being promoted again. He was only demoted following the events of The Search for Spock. At the outset of TMP, he accepted a grade reduction to captain so that he would be allowed to command the Enterprise during the V'Ger mission (hence the change in his uniform and rank braids) and (allegedly) for a time thereafter, including the Belle Terre mission.

Other novels have him commanding Enterprise on a mission to something called the Aquarius Formation. Ship of the Line takes place in 2278 and states clearly that he's returned to the admiralty by that point, as Spock has replaced him as Enterprise captain following the ship's assignment to Starfleet Academy.

Kirk is in command of the vessel (and Spock is first officer) for a brief cameo because the Enterprise has been temporarily returned to active duty due to the emergence of a Klingon threat near the Typhon Expanse, but the novel's text makes it plain that Kirk has joined the faculty at the Academy and is no longer commanding the vessel on a regular basis, similar to the arrangement he has at the start of TWOK.

^Following up on my last post, Kirk was definitely in command of Enterprise during Ex Machina, a novel written by Christopher. This book took place in the weeks immediately following The Motion Picture and was the Enterprise's first mission since the V'Ger incident.

I've been wondering if they might eventually do what some of the other series I've read have done, and include the e-books as extra content in the end of future books.

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.
Huh. The other three were going to be purchased regardless, but I was on the fence about this one, since I wasn't too fond of Mr. Mariotte's other ST efforts. However, this sounds like an interesting enough premise that I'm going to have to give it a try anyway. Curse my non-existent willpower!

I'd hate to think how many film/TV makers, and authors would have gotten one less sale if it weren't for my utter lack of self-control.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

Just putting my 2 cents worth in.

I love the TOS stories set in the 5YM. The more the better. And I am using my hard earned dollars to pay for them. Its just hard to get them where I live.

Decades I use to buy all the books as they came out in my country. There were some great books and also some duds way back in the 70s. But they were few and far between.
I check out every 2nd hand bookshops to get the old pocket books and current bookshops to get the latest releases.

The few post-5YM books I have read have been real duds. I apologise respectively if any of the authors here wrote them.
I'm not talking the quality of the writing. Just the stories and characterisations. There was one I remember where Spock was acting in the theatre. Spock and Kirk were barely aquaintences That put me off post-5YM for life.

If they write more 5YM stories I'll probably buy them if I can.

^"Acting in the theatre?" The only post-5YM novel I can think of that might fit that description is How Much for Just the Planet?, which is far from a typical novel for its period or any other.

Ignoring the "post-5YM" moniker, it sounds like Enterprise: The First Adventure to me (which would be pre-5YM).

^Hmm, yeah, that would fit the "Kirk and Spock were barely acquaintances" description. But I can't understand how anyone could mistake that for a post-5YM novel, when it says The First Adventure right there on the cover.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

Wasn't there also some odd Spock-on-stage references in Denny Martin Flinn's "The Fearful Summons"? He co-wrote ST VI and this novel was a highly-anticipated movie-era story that seemingly left many readers underwhelmed.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

^Ah, okay. That is also a book that I think few people would consider at all typical of post-5YM fiction. And of course it's actually post-TUC fiction, which is quite a distinct period from the TMP era.
