Latest German Star Trek books

Got a few bits of news for German readers today. Starting with two more covers from Cross Cult's translations of the Corps of Engineers ebooks. Here (via Cross Cult's Star Trek books Facebook page) are the new covers for Keith R.A. DeCandido and David Mack's two part story Invincible, which will be known in Germany as Unbesiegbar:

Cross Cult haven't announced dates for these yet, but if they follow the pattern of the series so far, then we should expect them in April and June next year.

Cross Cult have also revealed plans for more Trek books. In what I believe will be their first translation of a "non-fiction" title, this December they will be releasing a German edition of Keith R.A. DeCandido's latest Trek book, The Klingon Art of War.

It's also a good time for German Greg Cox fans, with the Cross Cult Star Trek books website now listing three of his books on the way, the recent TOS/Voyager crossover, No Time Like the Past, and the Eugenics Wars duology. The latter will be titled Die Eugenischen Kriege - Der Aufstieg und Fall des Khan Noonien Singh.

Finally, while Cross Cult are currently on Star Trek translation duty in Germany, that job once fell to Heyne, who have now released ebook versions of their Star Trek catalogue. Available on are dozens of titles, from TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise! All sport new covers, all built around a Starfleet delta. The covers combine elements of the original covers with new imagery. Below (continuing after the jump), are some of my favourites, you'll find many many more on

Thanks as ever to UnrealitySF's Jens Deffner for pointing me towards some of the above items.
