Sure it's sounds silly... But let's not forget she wrote a beloved sequel to Twisted of all things.
To be perfectly honest, VGR: "Twisted" is one of my favorite episodes. Protectors (and the two subsequent novels) was of course better, but still, I enjoyed it.
I think my problem with a DSC/VGR crossover would be that I want the series to stand on its own feet and do something new and not just a crossover with an established series. I would also prefer DSC to avoid time travel in generel.
^ As long as we get to see the Imperial Starship Discovery blasting phasers and torps from gold-clad hull cannons, I'm okay to skip time travel.
^ To this, I concede.
Already posted this in the July 2017 thread - but looks like Original Sin has been pushed back to October, judging by Amazon UK, likely to leave room in September for Desperate Hours. Its only a delay of about two weeks, but still enough to move it directly out of the way of the debut Discovery tie-in.
American Amazon still says September 26
Just checked the Dutch website I order my TrekLit from, also still says september 26th.
Simon and Schuster still has the September 26th date as well on their site
Another case of Amazon UK not knowing what they're doing - they're still not showing DS as being avaliable for preorder in paperback yet.
And the MU Discovery uniforms will, of course, be red.
Blood green for Vulcans.
So what does the known schedule look like now? We have ENT: Patterns of Interference, DSC: Desperate Hours, DS9: Original Sin, and TTN: Fortune of War confirmed, as well as the English Prometheus translation. Do we know any others? Any 2018 publications?
Here are all of the upcoming novels, non-ficition, and RPG books, and comic trades on the Memory Alpha Upcoming Productions page:
July: Hidden Universe Travel Guide: The Klingon Empire, Gold Key Archives Vol. 6, Boldly Go Vol. 1, Excelsior: The Many Worlds of George Takei (only Trek related),
August: ROTF: Patterns of Interference, Core Rulebook and These are the Voyages Vol. 1 for Star Trek: Adventures RPG,

TBA: VOY: To Lose the Earth, DIS: The Official Collector's Edition (I think this might be a collection of articles from the Star Trek magazine, but I'm not sure)
Unknown: Star Trek: The Lost Photographs: Never Before Seen Shots From The Legendary Series
And likely in October, the start of the DIS comic book.
Think I read somewhere the Prometheus translation is just an ebook. Can anyone confirm/refute this?
No, there will be English language paperbacks too.
According to amazon there's MMPB version too.
Since the new Star Trek books 2018 schedule was going to be discussed at a Shore leave Star trek books panel, I was curious about the list of the new books news was going to be listed here in the Trek lit section.
