    Although the Picard novels are all still much further down on my reading list (I’m only at roughly DS9 Season 4/Voyager Season 2, going chronologically), I think this is the most excited I’ve been for a Picard novel - sure, some backstory and familiar characters are nice, but I have really been game for more on the new characters introduced in Picard, so I am eagerly looking forward to this one.

    A Rios book. Finally. Ay caramba! I'm already hoping for a German translation. Alas, I'll have to contend with the original Klingon instead....:klingon: ;)

    Can't say I particularly liked, or remembered Rios, but the Picard novels have been excellent so far and I've never been disappointed by a JJM novel. Also, the cover looks great.

    I'm even curious about a Jurati novel. Or an Elnor novel. I just wish the books would be translated again.

    Rios was easily the MVP of the first season for me...just thinking about his six (or whatever) bitchy holoclones is enough to get me chuckling right now.

    We kinda got a Jurati-novel (of sorts) with PIC: The Last, Best Hope, at least as far as detailing her involvement with Bruce Maddox prior to the Mars synth-rebellion, which was the main thing I wanted to know about in terms of dangling threads left over from Season 1. Anything more would probably veer into territory that the TV show itself will eventually cover, and there's likely only so far they can go without more episodes laying down some canonical backstory-foundation first.

    It's five doppelgangers — that we've seen, anyway!

    I said it in another thread, but I'll say it here too, I'm really happy we're getting a Rios novel. Now we just need a Seven novel.

    This is the first year in a long time where I am for sure going to read all of the new novels. Very cool.

    The Ashes of Tomorrow is itself a very cool sounding title.

    The titles for the TNG books sounds really intriguing . There 's alot of Star Trek books I'm hoping to get this year. Especially the Tos movie era novel and TNG Shadows have offended and the new Picard novel.I'm really looking forward to getting the TNG miniseries and the new Ds9 novel Revenant that one I'm really looking to read a new Kira and Jadzia Dax story again that one sounds really good to have a story take place during the tv series.:bolian::) .

    I'm pretty sure Coda is going to be a crossover, not just TNG.
    Trek Core has posted a nice overview of the books coming out the rest of the year.
