The first plot details have been revealed for the upcoming ‘Star Trek: Coda’ trilogy from authors Dayton Ward, James Swallow, & David Mack. We also have some details on the new DS9 book ‘Revenant’ from Alex White
Last week we shared the first look at the upcoming Star Trek: Picard book, ‘Rogue Elements’ which follows the exploits of Captain Rios during his time with Starfleet. Within that article we also touched on a new trilogy of books tentatively called the ‘C’ Trilogy, from writers Dayton Ward, James Swallow and David Mack, at the time we published, very little was known about these books. However, following our article and numerous similar posts by other outlets, more details were revealed by the writers themselves via their online websites and Twitter and we learnt that the trilogy was in fact called ‘Star Trek: Coda’.
Very little information was given besides the title and that the three authors have been working together collaboratively to create this new trilogy. Now we can reveal initial plot details for each of the upcoming ‘Star Trek: Coda’ trilogy of books and the characters on which they will focus.
“The crews of Jean-Luc Picard, Benjamin Sisko, Ezri Dax, and William Riker unite to prevent a cosmic-level apocalypse—only to find that some fates really are inevitable.”

THEIR MOST DAUNTING MISSION WILL BE THEIR FINEST HOUR.

Unfortunately, no covers have been revealed at this stage, but we will update you as and when they become available. As you might expect, the brief details above don’t give anything away but offer some tantalising opportunities for speculation.
We also learned of a new book set in Deep Space Nine from author Alex White which was also in the pipeline, due to be released later in 2021. Again like ‘Star Trek: Coda’ no details where readily available except the title and its focus would be on Jadzia Dax. Below is the synopsis for ‘Revenant’:
Jadzia Dax has been a friend to Etom Prit, the Trill Trade Commissioner, over two lifetimes. When Etom visits Deep Space Nine with the request to rein in his wayward granddaughter Nemi, Dax can hardly say no. It seems like an easy assignment: visit a resort casino while on shore leave, and then bring her old friend Nemi home. But upon arrival, Dax finds Nemi has changed over the years in terrifying ways…and the pursuit of the truth will plunge Dax headlong into a century’s worth of secrets and lies!
Again no cover is available but we hope to bring you that soon.
