Re: Star Trek: The Seekers

I cannot say how thrilled I am with this news. Just what the TOS era needs imho !

Lets hope that some sort of loose continuity creeps across this and the other TOS novels in the future. Nothing like the 24th Century continuity (would it even be too much for the Enterprise to have the same heads of department/crew between books ?), but it's about time the 23rd Century books had a shared world.

Re: Star Trek: The Seekers

Interesting choice to not have book titles, but also is cool to see it will have retro covers. I am excited for this

Re: Star Trek: The Seekers

The biggest reason I love this, is that Vanguard gave me a new appreciation of the TOS era. However, I'm not a big fan of TOS novels set during the tv-show, since everything has to be back to status quo at the end. No matter how well written. With something like this, new characters and ships and locations, everything's unexpected. I love that!

SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Vanguard was the best treklit of the past decade, and now we're getting the next best thing! I cannot be anticipating these books anymore than I am at this moment.

Re: Star Trek: The Seekers

This looks and sounds great! I love the retro approach, I love that we'll start to get some sort of TOS movie era ongoing continuity, and I'm thrilled to see Rob's concept (which I did a feature on, on my blog a while back) becoming actual real books!

That mock-up cover literally brought a tear to my eye. I have never had a book cover do that to me before.
