It should be well worth the wait. The U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew are back in action in the upcoming TOS novel Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes, due out on August 30 from Simon & Schuster. The new adventure, penned by the tandem of Steve Mollmann and Michael Schuster, centers on Dr. McCoy, who must spring into action – in ways he never imagined – when all around him officers suddenly lapse into comas for no apparent reason. The mass-market paperback will run 352 pages and cost $7.99. StarTrek.com recently caught up with Mollmann and Schuster for an email interview – since Mollmann lives in Connecticut and Schuster is based in Austria – in which they talked about graduating from Trek short stories to a novel, how they collaborate long-distance and, of course, what readers can expect from A Choice of Catastrophes.
