More DRG3 DS9 plus new TOS blurb

David R. George III has announced on his Facebook page that he will be writing a new DS9 novel to celebrate the series' twenty anniversary next year. After the amazing job he did with Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn I cant say I am remotely upset to hear this!

Meanwhile the Simon and Schuster online catalogue has been updated with a new blurb for his next Trek novel, the TOS book, Allegiance in Exile:
A beautiful green world, rich in fertile soil and temperate climate…a textbook Class-M planet that should be teeming with life. Scans show no life-signs, but there are refined metals, including those associated with a space-faring race…and a lone city. But where are all of the inhabitants? Captain James T. Kirk leads a landing party from the U.S.S. Enterprise, hoping to get some answers.

The away team discovers a city in ruins, covered by dust, utterly bereft of life. Tricorder readings indicate that this is no ancient metropolis—it has been deserted only for a year. And just beyond the citadel lies what appears to be an ancient spaceport…a graveyard of ships that have clearly been sabotaged.

With these ruins too far from either the Klingon or the Romulan Empires, the Enterprise crew can only wonder: Who could have done this? And could this unnamed threat now pose an imminent danger to the Federation?

**Spoiler Alert** I still can't believe they blew up DS9! It hurt to even read it. I had to go back and keep re-reading it make sure it was true and not a trick or anything. But she's actually gone. At least it took the combined efforts of the Romulans, the Breen, the Andorians, and the Tzenkethi to blow the station apart. She was a tough old girl.

I felt they set it up, with all the talking down the old DS9, in such a way that it didn't hurt so much. I was more moved by Vaughn dying.

I agree completely. 'Raise the Dawn' was one of the best Star Trek novels I've read in a loooong time.
