Re: News about early 2014 schedule

It's simple the adventures you read about that you enjoyed are part of the 5 yr mission. The ones you don't those never happened. That should cut some of the time down.

I imagine that a similar exercise undertaken today would have to pack ~40 years worth of adventures into a five-year mission. As someone commented, that way lies madness.
Exactly. That would be like trying to figure out how every single ARCHIE comic fits into Archie's high school years.

(Seriously, even if Archie was dating Betty and/or Veronica every single night of the week for three years, there's no way he could have that many dating misadventures before graduating!)
I always assumed that stories like Archie and the Simpsons existed in a weird universe where time repeated itself endlessly after the Earth passed through a weird temporal anomaly. Bart Simpson attended 4th Grade, had summer, attended 4th Grade, had summer, etc. And yet he remembers every year he's lived.

Well, of course, now there's a comic where he has finally married Veronica - and you flip it over to read where he's married Betty.

Not to mention that Calvin and Hobbes went through about ten Christmases, starts of school, ends of school, etc. yet Calvin remained six years old throughout. The Peanuts gang went through similar yearly cycles but aged at something like 1/5 or 1/6 normal speed; when the comic started in the '50s the leads were 3 years old, but they were something like 9 by the '80s. Although some of the characters were added as babies and then caught up with the others in age, like Schroeder.

Definitely!

No body-swapping this time, though.

Greg,

I'm going to ask:

Does this pick up any threads from Ring of Time?

Does this have anything to do with Khan and/or The Eugenics War?

Nope. But, just to tease, this book may be of interest to VOYAGER fans as well . . . .

I'm being vague, in part, because I've yet to get CBS's final comments on the manuscript so there may still be some revisions to be done.

(Which is just standard procedure, of course.)

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

Voyager! Awesome!

I had assumed you were teasing a link to Enterprise. Temporal Cold War and all.

Voyager makes me want to read this far more, and the fact that I won't miss anything by not having read the Khan books.

Well, you've missed the Khan books, and they are very good...

I'm hoping to announce more about the book at Shore Leave this year.

Let's see some TNG, DS9, and VOYAGER novels set during their series.

At least once in a while.
Yes! Especially DS9. I'd like to read another season 2 or 3 era DS9 story.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

Seems like another e-book can be added to the early 2014 schedule:

TOS: Shadow of the Machine by Scott Harrison, currently scheduled on the Simon Schuster site for December 30th 2013, so it would be a January 2014 book, I guess.

Source: http://www.thetrekcollective.com/201...this-year.html

ETA: I've asked Scott Harrison on Twitter and it is indeed an eBook novella, as 8of5 speculated, the page count on the s&S site is wrong.

ETA2: Scott Harrison talked about the book on his blog including a short synopsis:

Set four days after the events of the movie Star Trek: The Motion Picture it will deal with the aftermath of the crew's encounter with V'Ger, as the Enterprise returns to drydock to finish its refit. The story will follow the characters of Kirk, Spock and Sulu as they return to their families, each haunted by their own particular personal demon.
