    Blurb
    An exhilarating thriller from bestselling author Dayton Ward set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation, following Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew as they explore the previously uncharted and dangerous Odyssean Pass.

    Surveying a nebula as part of their continuing exploration of the previously uncharted “Odyssean Pass,” Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise encounter a rogue planet. Life signs are detected on the barren world’s surface, and then a garbled message is received: a partial warning to stay away at all costs. Determined to render assistance, Picard dispatches Commander Worf and an away team to investigate, but their shuttlecraft is forced to make an emergency landing on the surface—moments before all contact is lost and the planet completely disappears.

    Worf and his team learn that this mysterious world is locked into an unending succession of random jumps between dimensions, the result of an ambitious experiment gone awry. The Enterprise crewmembers and the alien scientists who created the technology behind this astonishing feat find themselves trapped, powerless to break the cycle. Meanwhile, as the planet continues to fade in and out of various planes of existence, other parties have now taken notice….

    I dislike that this is a TNG book, because I haven't even read TF: Peaceable Kingdoms but I love the 20th century stories from Dayton Ward so I don't really know wether or not I should read it already...

    Isn't it the summer's Hearts and Minds that picks up Dayton's 20th-century stuff, not this one?

    According to the cover blurbs on Memory Alpha, that appears to be the case, yes.

    Nah, it'll probably be forgotten when the book is released and then we'll end up with two rivaling threads and those who post in the second will be called copy cats by those in the first and those in the second thread will insult the first threaders as hidebound and then someone will throw a stone at the other thread and then the other side will fight back and everything will burn and maybe someone from thread 1 will hold the bloody corpse of someone from thread 2 in their hands, seeing that it was a friend and will make a "Klingon death ritual" style death cry and everybody will stop fighting and look at the burning ruins of the forum, seeing what they have done.
    I don't want to be the catalyst of that.
    But thanks for the option:)

    Seems like it might be a flashback of some kind.

    It's not that specific with books like this. The paper versions don't have a hard street date, so they often start popping up a week or two before the "release date''. E-books on the other hand aren't available until the release date.
