    [Info] Star Trek Bücher - Neuerscheinungen 2005 (Übersicht)

    Auch wenn es noch ein paar Monat hin ist, gibts es trotzdem schon die ersten konkreten Infos zu den ST Neuerscheinungen 2005.
    Insofern eröffne ich hiermit in bewährter Tradition einen Übersichtstread.
    wie üblich kommen nur Titel rien, bei denen es mindestens ein Coverbild oder einen Klappentext gibt, optimalerweise natürlich beides.
    Diskussionen zu den einzelnen Bänden bitte wieder in seperate Treads, dies soll ein reiner Übersichts- und Informationstread bleiben.

    So, los gehts:

    Ex Machina
    Christopher L. Bennett

    The Human Adventure Continues.

    In the aftermath of the astonishing events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the captain and officers of the U.S.S. Enterprise remain haunted by their encounter with the vast artificial intelligence of V'ger... and by the sacrifice and ascension of their friend and shipmate, Willard Decker.

    As James T. Kirk, Spock, and Leonard McCoy attempt to cope with the personal fallout of that ordeal, a chapter from their mutual past is reopened, raising troubling new questions about the relationship among God, Man, and AI. On the recently settled world of Daran IV, the former refugees of the Fabrini worldship Yonada are being divided by conflicting ideologies, as those clinging to their theocratic past vie with visionaries of a future governed by reason alone.

    Now, echoes of the V'ger encounter reverberate among the Enterprise officers who years ago overthrew the Oracle, the machine-god that controlled Yonada. Confronting the consequences of those actions, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy also face choices that will decide the fate of a civilization, and which may change them forever.

    Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume Two
    J. Noah Kym, Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin

    Within every federation and every empire, behind every hero and every villain, there are the worlds that define them. In the aftermath of Unity and in the daring tradition of Spock's World, The Final Reflection, and A Stitch in Time, the civilizations most closely tied to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine can be experienced as never before... in tales both sweeping and intimate, reflective and prophetic, eerily familiar and utterly alien.

    TRILL: They are a people with secrets. For centuries they kept their true nature hidden, even taking disturbing steps to protect the small population of near-immortal symbionts with whom a privileged few Trill are joined, body, mind and soul. They are a people who hold memory to be sacred, yet deny their own past. Now amid a whirlwind of scandal, accusations, and growing civil unrest, Ezri Dax must penetrate millennia of lies and deceptions, and rediscover what should never have been forgotten, before her civilization rips itself apart.

    BAJOR: The honeymoon is over. Following the euphoria of Bajor's marriage to the Federation, the real business of making that union work has begun. But even on a world where politics and religion are intertwined, conflicting visions of Bajor's role in the interstellar arena divide the planet's leadership. As newly minted Captain Kira Nerys sets the tone for the kind of Starfleet officer she will be, First Minister Asarem makes a bold move to define Bajor's voice in the Federation, while the returned Benjamin Sisko prepares for a future that only he, as yet, can see.


      Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume III
      Keith R.A. DeCandido, David R. George III

      Within every federation and every empire, behind every hero and every villain, there are the worlds that define them. In the aftermath of Unity and in the daring tradition of Spock's World, The Final Reflection, and A Stitch in Time, the civilizations most closely tied to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine can be experienced as never before... in tales both sweeping and intimate, reflective and prophetic, eerily familiar and utterly alien.

      FERENGINAR: Quark's profit-driven homeworld is beset with scandal as shocking allegations involving his brother's first wife, the mother of Nog, threaten to overthrow Rom as Grand Nagus of the Ferengi Alliance. Making matters worse, Quark has been recruited by Rom's political adversaries to join their coup d'état, with guarantees of all Quark ever dreamed if they succeed in taking his brother down. While Ferenginar's future teeters on the edge, the pregnancy of Rom's current wife, Leeta, takes a difficult turn for mother and child both.

      THE DOMINION: Since its defeat in the war for Alpha Quadrant, the Great Link--the living totality of the shape-shifting Founders--has struggled with questions. At their moment of greatest doubt, their fate, and that of the Dominion itself, is tied to Odo's investigation of his kind's true motives for sending a hundred infant changelings out into the galaxy. As Odo searches for answers and takes a hard look at his past choices, Taran'atar reaches a turning point in his own quest for clarity... one from which there may be no going back.


        From Sawdust to Stardust
        Terry Lee Rioux

        "From Sawdust to Stardust" by Terry Lee Rioux is the biography of the late DeForest Kelley, the moving life story of one of the most beloved Star Trek professionals ever, tracing his life from his days as a preacher's son in Georgia, to his career as a western actor, to his rise as a pop-culture icon in the role of Dr. Leonard McCoy, to his final days in California. The book includes commentary from many of his family, friends, and professional associates, and a black & white photo insert spanning his life. It'll be available in late January, 2005, right around the time of Kelley's 85th birthday.


          Star Trek Gorkon
          Book Three: Enemy Territory
          Keith R.A. DeCandido

          The Elabrej Hegemony
          For centuries, the Elabrej firmly believed that they were alone in the universe, and that no sentient life existed outside their home star system. But their beliefs are shattered when a controversial exploration vessel of their own making encounters-and fires upon--an alien ship. The aliens return fire and destroy them--then come to Elabrej to investigate...

          The Klingon Empire
          While exploring the uncharted Kavrot Sector, the I.K.S. Gorkon learns that their brother ship, the I.K.S. Kravokh, has been fired on by an alien vessel and subsequently destroyed it. After setting course to investigate this new people, the Kravokh disappears--but a massive alien fleet is gathering at their last known location. Captain Klag must determine what has happened to the Kravokh, and who this new foe of the empire is...

          As two civilizations prepare for war, the secret agendas of both the Elabrej oligarchs and Klingon Imperial Intelligence may serve only to deepen the conflict--and Captain Klag may also face a mutiny from within his own ranks.


            Engines if Destiny
            Gene DeWese

            After the apparent death of James T. Kirk on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B, Montgomery Scott decides to leave Starfleet. A chance encounter with a mysterious woman named Guinan leads him to hitch a ride on the U.S.S. Jenolen--which crashes into a Dyson Sphere, leaving only Scotty to survive suspended as a transporter pattern...

            Seventy-five years later, he is revived aboard the Enterprise-D--on which Guinan serves as bartender. But fate has not finished with either Scotty or Guinan. The engineer hatches an audacious plan to travel back in time and rescue Jim Kirk the moment before he would vanish into the nexus and bring him back to the twenty-fourth century without damaging the timeline.

            Scotty's plan, however, does not go as expected. Though Kirk is rescued, the famed captain and the engineer, as well as Captain Picard, Guinan, and the crew of the Enterprise-D, are trapped in an altered past where there is no Federation, and no human race. Sarek of Vulcan leads a ragtag collection of species fighting a losing battle against the Borg, who have swarmed into the Alpha Quadrant and assimilated Earth.

            Starfleet's finest miracle worker must find a way to restore the timeline before the galaxy is overrun...


              Star Trek Titan
              Taking Wing
              Michael A. Martin, Andy Mangels

              After almost a decade of strife again foes such as the Borg, the Cardassians, the Klingons, and the Dominion, the United Federation of Planets is at the dawn of a new era. Starfleet is renewing its mission of peaceful exploration, diplomacy, and the expansion of knowledge. Among the starships spearheading that endeavor is the U.S.S. Titan, commanded by Captain William T. Riker and manned by the most biologically varied and culturally diverse crew in Starfleet history.

              But their mission does not begin according to plan.

              In the wake of Star Trek Nemesis, Praetor Shinzon, slayer of the Romulan Senate, is dead. The power vacuum created by his demise has put the Romulan Star Empire, enemy of the Federation, at the brink of civil war. Competing factions now vie for control of their fragmenting civilization, and if the empire should fall, that entire area of the galaxy could destabilize.

              To restore order to the region, Titan's long-anticipated mission of exploration is delayed as Starfleet assigns Riker to set up power-sharing talks among the Romulan factions. But even as the first tentative steps are taken toward building a new Romulus, the remnants of the Tal Shiar, the dreaded Romulan intelligence service, are regrouping behind the scenes for a power play of their own. With no other help available, Riker and the Titan crew become the last hope to prevent the quadrant from falling into chaos.

              First "Titan" novel, wraps up the Romulan storyline from the end of "Nemesis" and continues forward from there. According to Marco Palmieri, this series will be a return to the basics.

              There will be a contest involving the design of the Titan. The exact details are still being worked out, and will be included in this novel.


                Hollow Men
                Una McCormack

                At the turning point of the Dominion War, Captain Benjamin Sisko of Starbase Deep Space 9, facing certain defeat by the relentless forces of the Jem'Hadar and the Cardassians, went through with a secret plan to secure the aid of the Federation's longtime adversaries, the Romulans. What began as a desperate attempt to save lives became a descent into an abyss of deception, moral compromises and outright criminal acts, as Sisko sacrificed every ideal he held dear in order to preserve the civilization that espoused those selfsame principles.

                Now the aftermath of that choice is revealed for the first time as Sisko is summoned to Earth to take part in the first Allied talks to come out of the Federation's new partnership with the Romulans. But Sisko's conscience weighs heavily on him, compelling him to seek some kind of penance for what he has done... while elements within Starfleet itself set in motion a scheme to use Elim Garak as a pawn against a human political dissident who may hold the key to the outcome of the war.

                    Articles of the Federation
                    Keith R.A. de Candido

                    In the wake of the USA Today best-selling A Time for War, a Time for Peace, and Titan: Taking Wing, comes a unique look into the halls of power in the Star Trek universe....

                    Following the surprise resignation of Federation President Min Zife after the disastrous Tezwa affair, Nan Bacco of Cestus III has won a hotly contested election to become the new chief executive of over one hundred fifty planetary civilizations and their colonies. But no sooner does she take office than the Romulan Star Empire falls into chaos. With tensions already high, a Reman refugee ship is sighted approaching a Federation outpost, its intentions unknown.

                    As the first year of the Bacco Administration unfolds, the Federation Council is slow to work with its new president, and not always supportive of her policies or her appointments to key council positions; a successful first contact suddenly becomes a diplomatic disaster; and the sins of President Zife prove difficult to lay to rest... as one celebrated Starfleet officer's career reaches a turning point.


                      Captains Glory
                      William Shatner

                      During James T. Kirk's heroic five-year mission as captain of the Starship Enterprise, a mysterious alien threat called "The Totality" commenced its stealthy invasion of our galaxy, intending to conquer the Milky Way Galaxy as it had conquered the galaxy of Andromeda. Now the time for secrecy has passed, and a war unlike any other has begun--one that threatens to destroy the Federation, first by bringing warp travel to an end, and then by absorbing all living matter into a realm that exists beyond human knowledge.

                      Twice before, Captain Kirk has encountered the Totality. Both times it took the beguiling form of Norinda, an irresistible alien who becomes the woman each person she meets most desperately desires. In his first encounter, Kirk almost lost the Enterprise. In his second encounter, he almost lost his child, and watched in horror as the Totality absorbed Spock in its monstrous dimensional tendrils. But now, Kirk faces an even more devastating personal challenge because battle lines have been drawn, and he and his friend, Captain Jean-Luc Picard are on opposite sides.

                      Set more than a year after the events of Star Trek Nemesis, on the leading edge of Star Trek's future history, CAPTAIN'S GLORY depicts a Federation attacked from within, on the brink of collapse, with Earth's own solar system an armed and isolated camp. Reunited with Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy and Chief Engineer Scott, Kirk must join forces with Admiral Kathryn Janeway and the Starship Voyager's Holographic Doctor in order to save Spock and expose the true nature of the Totality.

                      With Captain William Riker and Commander Deanna Troi of the Starship Titan caught in the conflict between Kirk and Picard, and with Kirk's own child poised on the brink of a startling destiny millions of years in the making, Kirk must prepare for his third and final encounter with the Totality. But how can Kirk fight an enemy whose greatest weapon is love? And how can he triumph, when the price of victory is the life of his only child?

                          Errand of Fury, Book 1 of 3: Seeds of Rage
                          Kevin Ryan

                          Following the harrowing events of the Errand of Vengeance trilogy, tensions between the Federation and the Klingon Empire are the highest they've been since the Battle of Donatu V twenty-five years earlier. Even as Federation Ambassador Robert Fox engages in tense negotiations with the Klingon ambassador to maintain the peace, Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise sees his vessel refit from a ship of exploration into a ship of war. The coming conflict will take its toll on many personal lives as well...

                          Leslie Parrish: The security supervisor is stunned to learn that she is pregnant by her recently killed lover, Jon Anderson--and that Anderson was, in fact, a Klingon spy, surgically altered to pass as human.

                          Karel: Brother of the Klingon agent posing as Anderson, and responsible for his death, Captain Koloth's new first officer faces a crisis of faith as he sees the Klingon Empire falling into dishonorable ruin.

                          Michael Fuller: Father of Enterprise security supervisor Sam Fuller, who was killed in a battle with the Klingons, his son's death reminds him of Donatu V, of which he was one of the few survivors. Has Fuller reenlisted in Starfleet and joined the Enterprise security team out of loyalty--or vengeance?

                          The first in an all-new trilogy!


                            David Mack

                            Returning from its historic first voyage to the edge of the galaxy, the damaged U.S.S. Enterprise journeys through the Taurus Reach, a vast and little-known region of space in which a new starbase has been unexpectedly established. Puzzled by the Federation's interest in an area so far from its borders and so near the xenophobic Tholian Assembly, Captain James T. Kirk orders the Enterprise to put in for repairs at the new space station: Starbase 47, also known as Vanguard.

                            As Kirk ponders the mystery of the enormous base, he begins to suspect that there is much more to Vanguard than meets the eye. It's a suspicion shared by the Tholians, the Orions, and the Klingon Empire, each of whom believes that there are less than benign motives behind the Federation's sudden and unexplained desire to explore and colonize the Taurus Reach.

                            But when a calamity deep within the Reach threatens to compromise Starfleet's continued presence in the region, Kirk, Spock, and several key specialists from the Enterprise must assist Vanguard's crew in investigating the cause of the disaster and containing the damage. In the process, they learn the true purpose behind the creation of Vanguard, and what the outcome of its mission may mean for life throughout that part of the galaxy.


                            The first in a new series about a space station set in the days of the original series. According to editor Marco Palmieri, this is not "DS9 for the TOS era". The series will have multiple authors.

                            "Vanguard centers around a Federation starbase and the ships assigned to it during the time of The Original Series. It's about a chasing an ancient mystery having to do with the remote region of space in which the station has been established." -- Marco Palmieri, editor.
