New Frontier: Treason

I was wondering if this is still on course for relase next month? As there has been no promotion or advanced word of it & not even a cover image released. Has it been bumped a few months or are pocket books more focused on pushing Voyager: Full Circle??

"The Acclaimed Adventure Is Now In Paperback"? As far as I know, Treason never got a hardcover release. And what's this acclamation about? I haven't seen a single review of this book yet.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

^I assume it refers to the series, moving to (trade) paperback format after the last couple books released as hardcovers.

agreed, even after Before Dishonor, i'm pretty sure that PAD will deliver a good NF book, after all these are his characters so it stands to reason he'll write them fairly well

Re: New Frontier: Treason

I'm looking forward to the book.

Not sure if it has been put up before, but here's what looks the REAL back cover blurb for the book.

It is a time of political upheaval and uncertainty in the New Thallonian Protectorate. Following the brutal assassination of her husband, Si Cwan, former Starfleet officer-turned-newly-appointed-Prime Minister Robin Lefler must now face the growing danger and intrigue surrounding her newborn son and heir to the noble line of Cwan. Following a harrowing assassination attempt, Robin has no choice but to flee New Thallon with her child...seeking refuge with Captain Mackenzie Calhoun and the crew of the U.S.S. Excalibur and creating a major diplomatic crisis in Sector 221-G.

The political fallout between the Federation and the New Thallonian Protectorate pales, however, in comparison to the threat of an enigmatic alien race determined to seize the infant Cwan for its own mysterious purposes. But nothing could possibly prepare Calhoun for the shocking betrayal from within -- an act of treachery to aid and abet this alien race -- forever altering the lives of the Excalibur crew....

Re: New Frontier: Treason

That description is definitely intriguing!

Is that really the final cover? If so, I am disappointed. Having a com badge lying around somewhere is no improvement to the various sword ones.

It has indeed been a while so that I am hoping for a nice big book.

And not just a combadge, but a TOS movie era one?
As for the backcover, that sounds great, I can't wait. I don't know where Exeris found it, but I just found it on the S&S site.

Re: New Frontier: Treason

My only real complain is the fact that we pretty much just did the traitor thing with Soleta. But I'm still curious to see who it is.

This will be the first trek book I've bought without having borrowed beforehand since...well, the last New Frontier book.
