Two new Star Trek XI tie-in books aimed at young adults are scheduled for release on November 16, 2010.
The trade paperback-sized books, to cost $7.99, are the initial offerings in what promises to be a series of books, set in Starfleet Academy.
As reported by TrekMovie, One of the authors of the books has been named, Rudy Josephs, who wrote The Sacred Chalice (a mirror Picard and Troi story) for Shards and Shadows which was released last January. His Starfleet Academy book is available for pre-order at Amazon.
Both stories are set during the time frame of Star Trek XI, unlike the four recently postponed books written by Christopher L. Bennett, Greg Cox, Alan Dean Foster and David Mack, which were set after the events of Star Trek XI.
Star Trek XI tie-in books for adults may be in the future, but no details have been worked out yet.
