Re: News about early 2014 schedule

I think all 5 will be 24th Century. What that looks like post-The Fall is anyone's guess.

So...what else do you think we're going to get? We know Jan to April (the next Voyager, TOS/Voyager crossover, the next Rise of the Federation, TOS) and we know two Seekers books are coming later, and we know DRG3 has something in The Lost Era coming out.

That leaves 5 more slots.

I'm thinking two other TOS novels, one Titan novel, and a pair of TNG and/or Typhon Pact and/or whatever they're calling the big-picture 24th century ongoing narrative books this time.
I'm hoping for a possible second voyager novel or maybe...maybe...another New Frontier novel? One can only hope

I hope there's not more TOS, but Pocket has rarely liked to satisfy me on that score.

Dare I admit that I'm working on a new TOS outline?

Color me unsurprised given your Trek history.

(It's not that TOS is inherently bad - I just wish that it took up less than a third of the schedule!)

Thanks! For the record, I just finished what are (hopefully) the final revisions to the TOS/Voyager book . . . .

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

I've decided I actually do like TOS, what I dont like is 5YM alien of the week stories. Unfortunately thats what most TOS is, but there is so much more it could be.

Is it just that you prefer writing TOS stories set during the 5YM as compared to other timeframes, or even other iterations of Star Trek? When i looked on Memory Beta, I couldn't find any full length novels by you, for another iteration of trek, since the Q-Continuum books from the late 1990's. I know you wrote a few short stories and novella's, but nothing full length..

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

Well, I grew up on TOS so it's still near and dear to my heart. Don't get me wrong; I watched all the later shows religiously while they were on the air, but TOS is the only Trek series I own in its entirety or watch with any regularity.

Plus, part of the appeal of writing 5YM books is that I can basically go off and do my own thing without having to worry about meshing my plot with some complicated, over-arching continuity. I can see where that kind of collaborative enterprise can be stimulating in its own way (I enjoyed working out 4400 story arcs with Dave Mack), but there's something to be said for being able to work independently and explore my own favorite corners of the Trek universe without having to coordinate my efforts with eight other authors! Just as a personal preference.

Besides, its seems to me that the 24th century is in good hands these days!

Fair enough. If that's what you prefer, then that's what you prefer. But, if you ever plan on hanging out in the post-TV series 24th century, i'll be there
