2387 Canon

So who is going to get to write the book that's taking place in 2387 giving us the events that spawned the first alternate Trek movie?

We'll either find out soonish, or the whole thing will be disappointingly skipped over.

Right. It can't be that far off because The Fall ends in late-2385, and with no plans for another novel series, it's a good bet we'll get there soon.

When you say "no plans for another novel series", do you mean they haven't announced another novel series or that they said there won't be one?

We have no information whatsoever on when the novels will reach 2387 or how they'll deal with the Hobus Supernova.

They've not announced one.

Re: 2387 Canon

Does anybody know any sites where they have discussed what effect the Hobus Supernova would have on the novel verse?

A third option is that the next few years could be spent with novels that stretch out the remaining two years. Remember how DS9-R's Season 8 dealt with 2376? Another example is the current VOY-R with 2381.

There's been a great deal of speculation here on the TrekBBS about it. There are a couple of things we can say about the year 2387 in the Trek Litverse:

Re: 2387 Canon

It is possible that novels will skip the event jumping over it and referring to its effects in flashbacks?

I don't think the novels would just skip over a giant story like that.

You know. Again.

I have to imagine this is a reference to the Ascendants storyline...

But anyway, I would hope it's not skipped over, BUT god only knows if this would create issues with this general business of the Abrahams camp not wanting any novelizations in the new timeline.

There will be a giant cop out with Old Spock and Nero mistakingly assuming that Romulus got destroyed when it wasn't.

Re: 2387 Canon

As I've posted elsewhere, with THE remaining major 23rd century character 'leaving the building' soon, a major focus on Spock, his relationship with Saavik, his surviving human and Vulcan family family and his ambassadorship should permeate the 24th century novels until the Hobus event...
