Release Day! Discovery: Wonderlands by Una McCormack

Star Trek: Discovery
by Una McCormack

Once again, it's new Star Trek book day! We have the newest addition to the Star Trek: Discovery line, this time by one of my favorite authors, Una McCormack! Pick up Wonderlands today, detailing the "gap year" between Burnham's arrival in the 32nd century and the eventual appearance of the U.S.S. Discovery.

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

Publisher's description:
An all-new novel based upon the explosive Star Trek TV series!
In a desperate attempt to prevent the artificial intelligence known as Control from seizing crucial information that could destroy all sentient life, Commander Michael Burnham donned the “Red Angel” time-travel suit and guided the USS Discovery into the future and out of harm’s way. But something has gone terribly wrong, and Burnham has somehow arrived in a place far different from anything she could have imagined—more than nine hundred years out of her time, with Discovery nowhere to be found, and where the mysterious and cataclysmic event known as “the Burn” has utterly decimated Starfleet and, with it, the United Federation of Planets. How then can she possibly exist day-to-day in this strange place? What worlds are out there waiting to be discovered? Do any remnants of Starfleet and the Federation possibly endure? With more questions than answers, Burnham must nevertheless forge new friendships and new alliances if she hopes to survive this future long enough for the Discovery crew to find her....

  1. This is a nice looking cover. The reason I mention it is that the cover of McCormack's next book "Second Self" was revealed yesterday and it...is not good. I mean it's not outrageously bad like the old Section 31 covers, but it looks like a first draft of a composite.

    I totally suck at Photoshop, but some of these covers are so lazily put together that even I could could have made them in a matter of minutes.

    You guys are Trek V.I.P.s (very important podcasters) - maybe you need too flex some muscle and get S&S to hire some decent artists, or start crowdsourcing their cover art.

  2. Here's a recolorized version of the Second Self cover:


    Still not amazing, but maybe a bit better.

    And here's a faux cover for an imaginary Enterprise/Section 31 book:


    Not great either. I'm no Keith Birdsong, I'm afraid. Oh, well.
