    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.)

    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.

    It's Shannon O'Donnell, I'll bet.

    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.

    Yes! Especially DS9. I'd like to read another season 2 or 3 era DS9 story.

    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/2013/07/another-ebook-coming-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:

    Sounds interesting to me. Finally the post TMP timeframe is getting more love!

    ^Although it's clearly in a different continuity from my Ex Machina/The Darkness Drops Again/Forgotten History post-TMP material.

    It's cool their revisiting that period, but it's a shame it won't be in continuity with Christopher's stuff.

    Oh, huh, Scott Harrison is not someone I'd've expected to pop up in the Star Trek world.

    Is that such a bad thing though? You yourself have said writers do not need to keep everything in the same continuity, or does that not apply to your stories?

    Well yay for Treklit still drawing from outside sources. I mean don't get me wrong I love the Usual Gang of Idiots that we've got writing books but it's nice to get a bit of fresh blood from time to time even if it's only for a book or two.

    *raising an eyebrow* I believe you are making assumptions based on no evidence. All that Christopher did was state a fact. He did not offer any opinion on that fact, either positive or negative.

    Considering how concerned many Trek fans are with continuity and given that the question was likely to end up being asked I tend to suspect that he was basically seeking to answer the question in advance of it being asked knowing that it would be.

    ^Right. I never suggested it was a bad thing; I merely pointed out that it was the case, for the sake of clarity.

    The Simon and Schuster catalogue has been updated with blurbs for all four of the 2014 novels so far announced. I find myself suddenly looking forward to Greg's novel a lot more!

    Voyager: Protectors, by Kirsten Beyer (February)
    TOS: No Time Like The Past, by Greg Cox (March)
    Enterprise: Rise of the Federation - Tower of Babel, by Christopher L. Bennett (April)
    TOS: Serpents in the Garden, by Jeff Mariotte (May)

    Oh, cool... Greg has hinted that his book would relate to a future series, but that's all we've gotten so far. Looks like Seven's story starts in sixth season of Voyager.

    Hmmm. I might give Greg's book a shot. I usually don't read 5 year mission stuff but this could be an exception.
