    Can’t wait!
    Read the German novels. Listened to the audiobooks. Waiting for the English translations.

    And crossing fingers for a sequel. :adore:

    Yes. And as a warship the U.S.S. Prometheus gives fire to the enemies of the UFP. ;)

    Thanks! Me too. But in the end it's a decision based on success. Making Star Trek books in Germany is even more expensive than in the US (Cross Cult not only has to pay for the license and the authors, but also for the translation so CBS can greenlight the manuscript) - so let's hope for some nice christmas sales. ;)

    Looks nice. I feel need to buy these as actual books and not ebooks.

    I can confirm it has a very nice look and feel. :) The colors of the cover are vibrant and the ship looks remarkably sharp - I guess due to the CGI model by Tobias Richter. (Admittedly I always buy the books, because I just love books - so I might be biased.)

    Pre-ordered my copy, not just waiting for it to arrive...

    Also are those a vinyl sticker and bookmark??

    Then you have been lucky. The official release date was November 28th. But of course sometimes the books arrive early.

    Yes. Cross Cult made some give-aways for readings and conventions like the FedCon.

    You can get audiobooks in German for this?

    And sometimes even when you pre-order them you still have to wait...

    Picked up my copy last night! Was hoping to get into it this weekend, but now this doesn't seem likely. Hopefully next weekend; otherwise I probably won't get to read it until after Christmas! :)

    Downloaded mine on Tuesday at the same time as latest Titan novel. Interestingly at the time Prometheus was about 8000 in the Kindle bestseller list and Titan about 13000
