No Time Like the Past cover

StarTrek.com have released the cover for next years TOS/Voyager crossover novel, No Time Like Past, by Greg Cox. It will be marketed as a TOS novel, but also features a strapline, "An epic crossover tale!". Here's the simple but exciting composition:


And if you missed it before, here's the blurb:
STARDATE 6122.5. A diplomatic mission to the planet Yusub erupts in violence when ruthless Orion raiders attempt to disrupt the crucial negotiations by force. Caught in the midst of a tense and dangerous situation, Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S Enterprise finds an unexpected ally in the form of an enigmatic stranger who calls herself “Annika Seven.”

STARDATE 53786.1. Seven of Nine is taking part in an archae­ological expedition on an obscure planetoid in the Delta Quadrant when a disastrous turn of events puts Voyager’s away team in jeopardy -- and transports Seven across time and space to Yusub, where she comes face-to-face with one of Starfleet’s greatest legends.

STARDATE 6122.5. Kirk knows better than most the danger that even a single castaway from the future can pose to the timeline, so he and Seven embark on a hazardous quest to return her to her own era. But there are others who crave the knowledge Seven possesses, and they will stop at noth­ing to obtain it -- even if this means seizing control of the Enterprise!
No Time Like the Past is the March book next year, so it should start appearing late in February.

This sounds pretty interesting. I've only been a true Trekkie for a couple of years now, and while I've been watching through all the shows to catch up on all that I've missed, I'm just now getting to the end of TNG. I'll hopefully be starting DS9 early next year, but I want to get through it's seven seasons before getting to Voyager. I know the shows overlap each other, but figured going through them one show at a time would be a bit... easier...

Anyways, not having seen more than a couple Voyager episodes won't keep me from reading this.

Sounds like a good way to watch it all, there's not That much overlap really. Not knowing Voyager might make it an interestingly different reading experience for you; you'll presumably be in Kirk's shoes in the book, meeting this mysterious woman from the future.
