    The UK has Star Trek: Discovery on Pluto TV. CBS went with Pluto because it won't be available for Catch-UP and when Paramount+ launches in the UK in early 2022 (rumor has it sometime in January 2022) Star Trek: Discovery will be available there.

    In the UK, if you have Sky Q and Sky Cinema, Paramount+ #will be free. I'm not sure if this applies to Sky+HD. But I would think this also applies to Sky Glass. It does not apply to Sky Cinema subscribers who have Virgin Media. So if you do have Virgin Media, you may want to go with Sky Q as it's better and has much more content.

    Since I posted, Paramount+ Australia has been allowed to add all of DSC to stream.

    Broken record poster says it is disappointing no TOS books have appeared for 2022.

    Since TOS is a consistently good seller, I doubt we will have a TOS-free year.

    In fact, Gallery has only announced one fiction title (for "Picard") as yet. And a cookbook.

    Not listed on MA yet, Titan announced they are collecting the previous short stories ("Star Trek Online" tie-ins) into a slim trade hardcover, on April 19, 2022 (ISBN 9781787738614), and they intend to do all the new ones as well, currently in the "Explorer" magazine.

    I wonder. Given that Simon & Schuster nearly achieved a consistent monthly schedule in 2021, how or if has the ongoing pandemic affected 2022's projected emptiness in the first half of the year? Writers usually gravitate toward working at home, so do continuing disruptions to the supply chain affect Simon & Schuster's confidence in signing contracts with authors or somesuch?

    I am curious what the dead tree/ebook ratio among Trekkies is. After all, one is entirely immune to supply chain issues...

    That’s a good point. Seems like a good time to revive the ebook exclusive line. Baffling to me that it ever disappeared.

    My problem with eBooks is that I never read them. I've purchased dozens of them and then they sit in the cloud or on my tablet.
    There's something about a physical copy that makes me read it the moment I bring it back to the apartment, that I don't get from a digital copy.

    I would doubt very much that supply chain disruptions have any connection to the general lack of announced novels in 2022. There is a paper shortage, due in large part to people ordering more stuff online (as those boxes requiring paper to make), but that wouldn't have been evident earlier in 2021 when outlines would have been approved and contracts generated.

    Besides, based on the fact most other publishers have a steady release schedule already set as far as July, so the pandemic isn't impacting them any.

    I listen to all new releases via my Storytel subscription. The audiobooks with R. Petkoff have been amazing. This is a doubly enticing method these days, when paper copies take a few months until they are eligible for non-insane-cost delivery outside the US.

    I hope we'll get another Ds9 novel or an Enterprise book next year. I'm sure we'll get another Picard book besides the Raffi novel too .And a Tos book. I just hope sometime soon we'll get some more news about the books for 2022.
