Home > My Fiction, Star Trek > Announcing STAR TREK: LIVING MEMORY


Simon & Schuster has now posted the title and blurb for my new Star Trek novel, and the data has started to go out to the major book vendors, though some of the links only have tentative listings so far. So here it is:

Star Trek: The Original Series — Living Memory

An all-new Star Trek movie-era adventure!

While attempting to settle in as commandant of Starfleet Academy, Admiral James T. Kirk must suddenly contend with the controversial, turbulent integration of an alien warrior caste into the student body—and quickly becomes embroiled in conflict when the Academy controversy escalates to murder. Meanwhile, Captain Spock of the USS Enterprise and Commander Pavel Chekov of the USS Reliant are investigating a series of powerful cosmic storms seemingly targeting Federation worlds—unstoppable outbursts emitting from the very fabric of space. Endeavoring to predict where the lethal storms will strike next, Spock and Chekov make the shocking discovery that the answer lies in Commander Nyota Uhura’s past—one that she no longer remembers….

As you can tell, this is another installment in my post-Star Trek: The Motion Picture novel continuity, which was revived last year with The Higher Frontier (and which at this point has become more of a pre-Wrath of Khan continuity). Living Memory takes place during the gap between The Higher Frontier and Part Two of Mere Anarchy: The Darkness Drops Again.

Living Memory is scheduled for release on June 15, 2021, just over four months away. I’m surprised it took this long to announce it, but that means you guys don’t have to anticipate it for too long. And it probably means it won’t be too long before there’s a cover reveal. Stay tuned!

    Exciting news! I love what you do with the post TMP era. As much as I’d love to see a Discovery book from you (Discovery could use your world building and more plausible approach to science) I will happily devour a post TMP book from you.

    That sounds really intriguing and exciting! I like that time frame. (Any chance we’ll see Saavik around the Academy?) Congratulations!

      Too early for Saavik. But there will be several other familiar faces popping up.

    Exciting news! I can’t wait, and I’m glad that they’re letting you playgroup your strengths and interests. Though I do miss those Titan books that brought back the wonder if exploration… And I would personally but a minimum of a dozen copies of a new DTI book, if that guarantee for it greenlit!
