The most recent catalog from Simon and Schuster provided synopses and black-and-white tentative covers for four forthcoming Star Trek novels set in the J.J. Abrams universe.
The novels are: Refugees, by Alan Dean Foster; Seek a Newer World, by Christopher L. Bennett; More Beautiful Than Death, by David Mack; and The Hazard of Concealing, by Greg Cox.
In Refugees, “Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise must decide if a group of refugees are actually a menace, or just misunderstood.” Refugees is due out in late May.
Due out in late June, Seek a Newer World features a Klingon attack on the Enterprise. “When the Enterprise is outnumbered and under attack, the crew manages to escape and discovers an entire hidden civilization in this exciting new original Star Trek novel.”
More Beautiful Than Death, due out in late July, is “an all-new adventure featuring the new Enterprise crew on a mission to broker a Federation trade agreement.” On board the Enterprise is someone familiar to Trek fans, Spock’s father Sarek.
In The Hazard of Concealing, the elder Spock’s “knowledge of both technology and future events makes him one of the most important strategic assets in the galaxy. Starfleet Command wants Ambassador Spock to rejoin Starfleet and share that information with them, but Spock is reluctant to interfere with the unfolding of the new timeline.”
