Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed - Dec. 2014?

So... I noticed something while poking around on David Mack's site to prepare for an upcoming interview with him. At the top of his "Books" page is a listing for Section 31: Disavowed slated for Dec. 2014. You can BET this will be one of the things I'll be asking him about!

Here's the link: http://www.infinitydog.com/books.html

Incidentally, if anyone has any questions they'd like to ask David Mack, I can probably slip one or two more into my interview with him for TrekCore.com!

Re: Star Trek: Section 31: Disavowed - Dec. 2014?

Just a quick note: The cover image for Disavowed on my site is NOT the real cover; it's just a placeholder promotional image I'm using to keep my page layout intact. (Same goes for the Seekers 1 cover image on that page.)

As for the story of Section 31: Disavowed, the outline has met with my editors' approval and is awaiting final approval by the Star Trek office at CBS.

"Disavowed", eh? As in..."If any of your team is caught or killed..."?

Hey, Mr. Mack--anything you can reveal, at this date?

Precisely. … And yes, I have been watching a lot of classic Mission: Impossible on Netflix lately….

Nope, not a single thing. Even the cover image on my website is a red herring.

I can't remember the last time a title of a book alone got me this interested. I'll definitely be eagerly awaiting more information.

Awesome! I've been waiting for the dangling Section 31 issue to be picked up since the last Section 31 book in 2001.

S31's gotten some play in the DS9 books. Looking forward to seeing it get picked up again, though 12/14 is dreadfully far in the future.

It so strange you brought this up, as I noticed this a few days ago as well.

Suffering from early morning coffee withdraw, my brain didn't know what to make of this book as first! Based on the "Disavowed" stamp I originally perceived this as a book previously written that the author was so unhappy with, he no longer claimed it as his own! Sort of a Alan Smithee situation for literature! lol

I wonder if this will be that fall-of-Section 31 story hinted at in the 25th century portions of The Good That Men Do?

That's what I was wondering/ hoping as well.

Well, that's a guaranteed sale here...

Also, colour me amazed that the Mission Impossible movie series didn't spawn a tie-in book series for the franchise in some form. I'd have thought it was a no-brainer for Pocket...

Sounds very exciting! I'm in for sure!

Mr. Mack: I'm just curious about the placement in the timeline. Are you able to tell us if it's current with the rest of the TNG/DS9 24th century (ie. 2385)?

Something new in terms of TrekLit. It's been ages since we had some big stuff with S31 in TrekLit. Sure, there was Trip in the ENT era, but this sounds a lot bigger.

If that cover could be the actual one, it is amazing! Is there any chance of a bigger jpeg of that spec cover? And will this be following on from your Fall volume?
