It's the December novel this year. http://www.thetrekcollective.com/p/2...-schedule.html

(Which means it will hit in late November.)
And I'm plugging away on it as we speak!

Excellent news -- I somehow hadn't caught that, so great to hear we'll be getting it this year.

Re: You're the Editor- 2015 Edition

Anything more specific you can say about the timing of the book more than "movie era"?

I don't think it's a secret. It's set somewhere between the fifth and sixth movies. I haven't quite settled on precisely when, but closer to the fifth movie than the sixth. (Sulu hasn't taken charge of the Excelsior yet.)

Awesome! I love that era! Is Saavik aboard ship?

^Well, in the DC comics, at least, Saavik didn't rejoin the crew until just after Sulu left.

I'm afraid not. We don't see Saavik in the movies after that brief bit in TVH and I didn't really want to have to explain where she's been or why she's back--and I didn't want to step on the toes of whatever books or comics might have already dealt with these issues.

Saavik seemed like a distraction to the story I wanted to tell, which is more about an older, more mature Kirk. (My other agenda, btw, the way is to focus on Chekov a bit, since I've never really done much with him before.)

Greg that's great to hear your working on a novel n the movie era and Having a Kirk story with an older wiser Kirk is fantastic.Also including Chekov having a bigger storyarc is long overdue in the tos books. I look forward to reading both of your Tos Novels coming out this year.

I confess I've sorely neglected Chekov in my Trek work, so I'm trying to make up for that now. I'm writing a Chekov scene this afternoon in fact.

Yeah, the year 2287 is (comparatively) pretty well-explored, between the immediately-post-TFF DC comic books, and novels like Probe, The Rift, and In the Name of Honor, but 2288 and 2289 are both untouched on the prose front. I think the only major novel set during that timeframe is most of Mangels' & Martin's Excelsior: Forged in Fire (Nov./Dec. 2289, into early January 2290, where Sulu officially takes command).

On the other hand, there's plenty of leeway between that year and 2290, and I'm glad hear that you're filling in the gaps, so to speak -- as you rightly mention, Kirk's at a very interesting point in his life, coming after the events of the last several movies (and especially the events of Dayton's novel), to say nothing of his crew. Chekov's a good choice for examination in this era -- he's been through almost as much shit and hell as Kirk and Spock by this point, and he's not getting any younger, either.

Hoping for some tasty continuity with the DC Comics runs, of course, but either way, this era is probably my favorite in Star Trek (with early-period DS9 coming in second place), and finally having a brand-new novel set during the Enterprise-A years is the best news I've heard in a while.

Re: You're the Editor- 2015 Edition

I agree. My thoughts exactly. I really look forward to reading this one, Greg!

Re: You're the Editor- 2015 Edition

Also, as other pros in here have pointed out, most movie-era novels tend to stick closer to one film or another; with the wide gap between TFF and TUC during Kirk's captaincy of the Enterprise-A, there's a lot of relatively-virgin, untouched territory to mine there (at least, again, as far as the novels are concerned).

If Greg's novel manages to move further outward a bit from the events of TFF than previous books, outstanding. (Hell, even if he doesn't, this is still a total Day One purchase. )

You are the editor of the TrekLit line for publishing year 2015. What do you publish?
A single hard-copy Q book that resets everything to the way it was at the end of DS9's relaunch 'season finale' "Unity"
