Star Trek: The Next Generation
Collateral Damage

It's already been showing up on bookshelves, but today is the official release day for the latest entry in the ongoing Star Trek saga: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Collateral Damage by David Mack!

Continuing the fallout from Section 31's exposure in Control, this novel sees Captain Jean-Luc Picard return to Earth to face the consequences of his actions in the ouster (and subsequent assassination) of disgraced Federation President Min Zife.

I'm very much looking forward to reading this one, and you can be assured we will be covering it on an upcoming episode of the Literary Treks podcast, as well as here on Trek Lit Reviews!

Check out below for the back-cover blurb and links to purchase from Amazon.

Meanwhile, the U.S.S. Enterprise is sent to apprehend pirates who have stolen vital technology from a fragile Federation colony. But acting captain Commander Worf discovers that the pirates’ motives are not what they seem, and that sometimes standing for justice means defying the law….

  1. David Mack is one of the very best Trek writers out there. I'm hoping he sent the current novel-verse out with the bang it deserves.

  2. Why did they change the size of the books? I liked them better when they were smaller (and $7.99) instead of larger and nearly double the price. It made me stop buying them.

    1. The Trek novels started being published in the trade paperback format last year. It's part of a shift by the publishing industry as a whole, with mass-market paperbacks (the smaller format) becoming more and more rare across the entire industry.
