    Too bad; I was going to read it before seeing the show (for a variety of reasons).

    Maybe?

    I'm hoping Amazon offers the option of getting the epub when you buy the print edition. They do that with some books.

    If you read Desperate Hours before watching the pilot, it won't ruin anything for you. The spoilers I speak of are minor; I just try to err on the side of caution when it comes to fans and spoilers.

    ^ I've been on the script distribution list all season. I've also been on the distribution list for concept art, set designs, etc. In addition to tailoring my work to match theirs, I've been allowed to contribute notes and feedback (via Kirsten Beyer) when I spot things that I think should be queried, either for science, or for Star Trek continuity. It's been a wonderful gig.

    I think it definitely puts my mind at ease to know that so many fans are working on the show even after Fuller's departure.

    I'm looking forward to reading your book - and I've not read a Trek novel for years. I think a lot of people are in a similar situation.

    Sounds like an awesome arrangement for you, and a pretty damn good one for those of us who will read the first novel. :)

    Damned TrekMovie. :p My review copy arrived this morning. How did they get so lucky?

    I'm a speedreader so read it this evening, but it'll take a day or so for the review.

    So given that the pilot was a prequel to the prequel, is this novel a prequel to the prequel to the prequel?

    Just started it up, and Yes, set shortly before Discovery. One year before Binary Stars.
