It will feature characters from the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series, including Doctor Julian Bashir on the new-and-improved DS9 station, and Captain Ezri Dax and her crew aboard the U.S.S. Aventine. It will be a combination political-medical-military thriller that will have serious and lasting consequences for some of our continuing principal characters.Elsewhere in the world of Trek lit, the latest episode of Trek FM's Literary Treks podcast featured an extensive interview with another The Fall author, Una McCormack. She reconfirmed her book, The Crimson Shadow, will feature Garak and Picard, and also mentioned it will be set on Cardassia. The interview focused mainly on her previous Star Trek books however, in particular her latest, the Typhon Pact novel, Brinkmanship, which was discussed in impressive detail!
And, although this is subject to change, at the moment its opening sentence is, “There was so much blood.”
Also... As Keith R.A. DeCandido so subtly pointed out in the comments below, since the last time I mentioned Literary Treks there was another episode which I didn't get round to mentioning anywhere. The feature interview in that episode was with... Keith R.A. DeCandido! Sadly no new Trek coming from him any time soon, but as one of the most prolific Trek writers he still had plenty to talk about! I particularly enjoyed the discussion on Articles of the Federation, and the enduring presence of Nanietta Bacco in Trek lit.
