New Discovery Novel Coming! And... Mirror Voyager?

A couple of interesting book and comic tidbits to share with you today!

First, thanks to a reveal at last weekend's Shore Leave convention in Hunt Valley, Maryland, we've learned of a new Star Trek: Discovery novel coming later in the year from one of my favorite Trek authors, Dave Galanter.

Paul Stamets is the focus of the upcoming Discovery novel Dead Endless by Dave Galanter.

Star Trek: Discovery: Dead Endless features an adventure set aboard the U.S.S. Discovery (a first for the book series bearing the ship's name), and centers around the character of Lieutenant Paul Stamets. Here's the back-cover blurb:

The U.S.S. Discovery’s specialty is using its spore-based hub drive to jump great distances faster than any warp-faring vessel in Starfleet. To do this, Lieutenant Paul Stamets navigates the ship through the recently revealed mycelial network, a subspace domain Discovery can briefly transit but in which it cannot remain. After responding to a startling distress call originating from within the network, the Discovery crew find themselves trapped in an inescapable realm where they will surely perish unless their missing mycelial fuel is found or restored. Is the seemingly-human man found alone and alive inside the network the Starfleet officer he claims to be, or an impostor created by alien intruders who hope to extract themselves from the mycelial plane at the expense of all lives aboard Discovery?

Dead Endless goes on sale on December 17th. Below are the pre-order links to pick it up from Amazon.

And recently announced by IDW at the San Diego Comic Con: Voyager is getting some Mirror Universe representation in an upcoming comic!

"Mirrors and Smoke" cover art by J.K. Woodward.

"Mirrors and Smoke" comes out in October, written by Paul Allor featuring artwork by one of my favorites, J.K. Woodward, as well as a retailer incentive cover by George Caltsoudas. The story features the rebel crew of the I.S.S. Voyager, stranded in the Delta Quadrant far from the remnants of the Terran Empire.

‘Mirrors and Smoke’ introduces Captain Janeway of the Voyager, a rebel ship stranded in the Delta Quadrant, far from the ruins of the Terran Empire. When Janeway crowns herself Pirate Queen of the Quadrant, the locals – including scavengers Neelix and Kes – won’t give up without a fight. Amid this conflict, the crew of the Voyager has a second problem on their hands: just who is the Terran calling herself Annika Hansen, and can she be trusted?

"Mirrors and Smoke" is a one-shot, but it will just be the first in a multi-month series featuring tales from the Mirror Universe with each issue focusing on a different Star Trek crew!

Keep track of all of the upcoming releases on my 2019 Releases page, and stay tuned for more news and reviews!

  1. Mirror Voyager....oh my. I'm seeing Neelix as a criminal mastermind, Kes as the self-established god over a planet of impressionable aliens (a la Ardra)....and Harry as a lieutenant.

    Harry as a lieutenant may be a bit too wild.

  2. If we can have a Mirror Universe Voyager comic why oh why can we not have a Voyager/Futurama crossover?
