The other was released in the second volume in 2009, and is by Ian Edginton.
"Was" in Volume 2?

That reprint omnibus hasn't even been published yet, as "Alien Spotlight: Cardassians" isn't due out as an individual issue until September.
Well, volume 2 as in the second series, whether it's been lumped together into a book yet or not.

And Cardassians hasn't been solicited properly yet, so isn't due until at least November, judging by the release date on Amazon for the omnibus more likely December or January!

The TPB will contain the Alien Spotlight, an exclusive Romulan point-of-view adaptation of Balance of Terror, The Hollow Crown and Schism.
I hadn't heard about the BoT adaptation. Interesting. Kind of like Blood Will Tell with Romulans. (Green Blood Will Tell?)

If this helps at all, a little timeline (I've not read Vanguard yet so taking the Vrax info as described by others):
  • 2265:Vrax is Praetor per Vanguard
  • unseen: Vrax is killed by his son "Smirky" who takes the Praetorship
  • late-2265/early-2266: Edginton Alien Spotlight, featuring tests of "ghost ships" in Romulan space
  • 2266: Byrne's Alien Spotlight, ghost ship development appears to be complete, leading straight into Balance of Terror
Vrax is mentioned in Vanguard: Summon the Thunder. That's six weeks before Reap the Whirlwind, which is in 2266; so StT has to be in late November '65 at the very earliest. So if it is possible to fit the IDW comics and VNG into the same continuity, then the Edginton Romulans would have to be early '66.

As 8 of 5 says, the term "volume" refers to a particular group of issues of a periodical, not just to a book-bound collection. Many magazines or journals have annual volumes. For instance, the July 2009 Scientific American is Volume 301, Number 1. Since this is the second distinct 6-issue run of Alien Spotlight, it is Volume 2, even when published in individual issues.

So it is the end then? The stuff on Memory Beta said several sequels, so I thought there might be more after Schims.
It always depends on sales. The second Romulan mini-series was done to flesh out enough material to make another thematic omnibus.

If sales are still good and John Byrne is still interested, why would there not be more?
