Fans waiting for more Star Trek: Discovery novels will be glad to hear that a third story will be out next spring and that it will be a Saru story.
The book, Star Trek: Discovery: Fear Itself, will be written by James Swallow. It follows Desperate Hours (David Mack), released in September, and Drastic Measures (Dayton Ward), which will be released February 6, 2018.
In Fear Itself, “Lieutenant Saru is a Kelpien, a member of a prey species born on a world overrun by monstrous predators…and a being who very intimately understands the nature of fear. Challenged on all sides, he is determined to surpass his origins and succeed as a Starfleet officer aboard the U.S.S. Shenzhou. But when Saru breaks protocol in order to prove himself to his crewmates, what begins as a vital rescue mission to save a vessel in distress soon escalates out of control. Forced into a command role he may not be ready for, Saru is caught between his duty and the conflicting agendas of two antagonistic alien races. To survive, he will need to seek a path of peace against all odds, and risk compromising the very ideals he has sworn to uphold.”
Star Trek: Discovery: Fear Itself will debut on June 5, 2018 and will cost $16.00.
