Unfortunately, it looks like this'll be my only new Star Trek purchase during the first half of last year. It's weird; there seem to be fewer books by authors I enjoy every year.
It's weird, but your loss. I'm stoked.

Good news so far, I'm hoping the ENT Relaunch Romulan War Trilogy is still planned for 2009?

Indeed. I used to buy about eight or nine books a year, on average, but I've watched that slowly sink to the point that I bought only two book last year.

I'm glad you'll enjoy yourself.

Dude! I felt spoiled by what a wonderful year *this* one was going to be for Star Trek books. Next year looks just as awesome! More Vanguard! More Titan! More KRAD exploration of the Star Trek world beyond the TV crews... Be still my heart! (plus that anthology looks uber-awesome.) I continue to feel very spoiled as a fan.

Re: Comic-con news

The most reassuring thing about the book list (which sounds great) is that David Mack will let some characters live (otherwise subsequent books wouldn't exist)! Now, we need to all chip in and get these authors some coffee (maybe intravenous for KRAD) so that they can keep writing such good stuff.

Never assume.

Besides Kobayashi Maru in 2008, what else is coming up for Enterprise in the first half of 2009?

^ Dunno yet. You know everything that is publicly known now.

I do know that something with the Romulan War is planned, but I have no idea what or where those plans are....

I'd like to clarify, I mean authors whose writing I usually enjoy. Several authors whose books I don't usually like much are posters whom I'm very glad to have on the board.

Whatever those plan are I am looking forward to this, Destiny, Mirror universe and TOS: Mere Anarchy. I hadn't expected to see a TOS book next year. What's this going to be about? I'm guessing it will be a short story collection?

Mere Anarchy is a reprint of the 40th anniversary eBook miniseries that was done in late 2006 and early 2007. So it'll collect all six eBooks into a single volume.

It's a story that encompasses three decades of TOS history, starting before "Where No Man has Gone Before" and ending shortly after the Generations prelude, and covering the high points in between, each story involving a planet that suffers a major disaster in the first book, and the Enterprise keeps coming back over the years for various reasons.

Over a Torrent Sea will pick up where Destiny leaves off, as Christopher picks up the pieces from whatever Dave leaves of Titan.
I just wonder how many of the Titan's crew he'll have left to work with.

Finally, A Singular Destiny is a little bit of a different beast. The people who've been clamoring for a Clancy-style political thriller will like this one, as it's about the political fallout from Destiny's events (which will be considerable). It won't feature any of the main crews, although a ship that plays a big role in Destiny will also play a big role here, as well as familiar faces from other parts of the Trek universe. The protagonist will be a civilian character of my own creation.

Oh, and those of you who want to see more of the Bacco Administration from Articles of the Federation, both the Destiny trilogy and A Singular Destiny will feature those characters in good-sized roles.
I'm not all that worked up over the political thriller (although it could be fun if done right), but I am excited to see that Pres. Bacco is coming back.

Here are the new projects ...
excellent list of books, thanks KRAD!

There is also now an author list for Mirror Universe: Shards and Shadows, still set for January 2009 release:
who's the editor for this book?

The February, March, and April books are jokingly being referred to as "cleaning up Mack's mess." All three will follow up on the events of Destiny.
you know this is going to stuck for the next two years on this board, right?

Yes, that's really Mere Anarchy on an actual schedule. It'll probably also have an introduction or afterword or some such by me.....
looks like I'll be buying this one too, even though I've read the whole year a while ago.

Oh, and those of you who want to see more of the Bacco Administration from Articles of the Federation, both the Destiny trilogy and A Singular Destiny will feature those characters in good-sized roles.
YES!
