Uncertain Logic cover

Due out in April is Uncertain Logic, the third book is Christopher L. Bennett's Rise of the Federation series, continuing the adventures of the former Enterprise NX-01 crew in the newly created United Federation of Planets. StarTrek.com have now revealed the cover for that book, created by Alan Dingman, which features a cunningly conceived version of the IDIC, formed out of the Kir'Shara and Vulcan.


Here's a reminder of the blurb:
Years ago, Jonathan Archer and T’Pol helped unearth the true writings of Vulcan’s great philosopher Surak, bringing forth a new era of peaceful reform on Vulcan. But when their discovery is seemingly proven to be a fraud, the scandal threatens to undo a decade of progress and return power to the old, warlike regime. Admiral Archer, Captain T’Pol, and the crew of the U.S.S. Endeavour investigate with help from their Vulcan allies, but none of them suspect the identity of the real mastermind behind the conspiracy to reconquer Vulcan—or the price they will have to pay to discover the truth.

Meanwhile, when a long-forgotten technological threat re-emerges beyond the Federation’s borders, Captain Malcolm Reed of the U.S.S. Pioneer attempts to track down its origins with help from his old friend “Trip” Tucker. But they discover that other civilizations are eager to exploit this dangerous power for their own benefit, even if the Federation must pay the price!

I really hope it's not the Romulan. Again. And I hope even more it's not the Orion. Again.

But even if it is, it'll be fine. Bennet is, in my estimation, the best writer currently active in Treklit. Though David Mack and the woman doing the Voyager stuff are also pretty good.
