Blurb: An original novel based on the thrilling Star Trek movies directed by J.J. Abrams! Taking place in an alternate timeline created when the Starship Kelvin was destroyed by a Romulan invader from the future, this bold new novel follows Captain James T. Kirk and an inexperienced crew commandeering a repaired U.S.S. Enterprise out of spacedock for a simple shakedown cruise. When a distress call comes in, the Enterprise must aid a large colony ship of alien refugees known as the Perenorean, who are under siege by an unknown enemy. But Kirk and his crew will find that the situation with the peaceful Perenorean is far more complicated than they bargained for, and the answers as to why they were attacked in the first place unfold in the most insidious of ways… About the Author: Alan Dean Foster’s work to date includes excursions into hard science fiction, fantasy, horror, detective, western, historical, and contemporary fiction.

I actually don't know when I am going to be able to get this one. I much prefer to purchase my Star Trek books in-store, and of course all the Indigo/Chapters stores are closed until further notice. A note on the abbreviation: I was originally planning to use either KT or KT-TOS for this one, however, after some research, I ended up going with ALT for consistency. If anyone feels strongly that it should be changed to something else, feel free to let me know!
