Simon & Schuster/ Pocket Books have been publishing Star Trek novels on a regular basis for as long as I can remember. (I believe their first one was The Entropy Effect by Vonda N. McIntyre from back in 1981, and they’ve been publishing Trek books consistently ever since.) But for the last year-plus, that regular schedule was interrupted by behind-the-scenes issues. (Click here for more details.) Thankfully, not only has the publishing of new Star Trek books resumed, but they are continuing, uninterrupted, the inter-novel continuity that I have so loved in these Trek books for the last 10-15 years, continuing the stories of these characters beyond the end of the 24th-century-set Trek shows.
