Star Trek: Discovery will have a tie-in novel coming out this autumn, followed by a comic. Plus – Discovery panel set for San Diego Comic-Con.
Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours, written by David Mack, will make its debut on Tuesday, September 26 (two days after Discovery premieres). According to Mack, the story was “based on characters, dialogue, backstory, and situations in the upcoming series’ two-part pilot. If we’ve all done our jobs correctly, it should serve as an excellent companion piece to the two-part premiere.”
Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours can be pre-ordered here, where it will cost $11.00.
The book will also be released as a Kindle eBook and an unabridged audiobook.
A Star Trek: Discovery comic, written by Mike Johnson and Kirsten Beyer and featuring art by Tony Shasteen, will also come out this autumn, although a set date has not yet been announced. Johnson promised that the comic “will be closely woven into the show.”
Those attending the San Diego Comic-Con next month can attend a Star Trek: Discovery panel which will take place Saturday, July 22 at 2:30 PST in Ballroom 20. TrekToday will provide more information on this panel as information becomes available.
