The Upcoming STAR TREK BOOKS 2023

-

2022 was certainly a painful year for Trekkies regarding Star Trek books and the lack thereof. Just two novels were released, the smallest number for many decades. And Eaglemoss/HeroCollector’s demise leaves many reference books’ fate hanging in the balance. The Shipyard series was a massive hit with our team and many fans alike. Things are looking better on the model front, so we’ve crossed everything for Star Trek Books 2023.

And the new year already has plenty of new Star Trek content for 2023 in the pipeline. There are lots to look forward to for young (and young at heart) readers. Three Star Trek: Prodigy novels are slated for release this year. ‘Supernova’ and ‘A Dangerous Trade’ are due out today – January 17. With another ‘Escape Route’ due out in May.

Plus, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds first official series novel. Author John Jackson Miller (The Enterprise War) will deliver the new Pike and Crew adventure next month. Additionally, Dayton Ward’s Star Trek: Discovery drops in May. And there are reference books headed our way too! So let’s dive in and see what the year has in store so far…

UPDATES

March 27, 2023 – New release dates have been updated. Plus, IDW Publishing’s crop of graphic novels for complete & ongoing series has been added!

To Boldly Go: How Nichelle Nichols and Star Trek Helped Advance Civil Rights

Author: Angela Dalton & Lauren Semmer

Published: 17 January 2023

From the Publisher: “Perfect for fans of Hidden Figures and Mae Among the StarsTo Boldly Go tells the true story of Nichelle Nichols and how she used her platform on Star Trek to inspire and recruit a new generation of diverse astronauts and many others in the space and STEM fields.

As Lieutenant Uhura on the iconic prime-time television show Star Trek, Nichelle Nichols played the first Black female astronaut anyone had ever seen on screen. A smart, strong, independent Black woman aboard the starship Enterprise was revolutionary in the 1960s when only white men had traveled to outer space in real life and most Black characters on TV were servants.

Nichelle not only inspired a generation to pursue their dreams but also opened the door for the real-life pioneering astronaut Sally Ride, Dr. Mae Jemison, and more.

This empowering tribute to the trailblazing pop culture icon reminds us of the importance of perseverance and the power of representation in storytelling. You just might be inspired to boldly go where no one like you has ever gone before!”

First Officer Una finds herself fighting to survive an untamed wilderness where dangers lurk at every turn. Young cadet Nyota Uhura struggles in a volcanic wasteland where things are not as they seem. Science Officer Spock is missing altogether. And Pike gets the chance to fulfill a childhood dream: to live the life of a cowboy in a world where the tools of the 23rd century are of no use.

Yet even in the saddle, Pike is still very much a starship captain, with all the responsibilities that entails. Setting out to find his crewmates, he encounters a surprising face from his past—and discovers that one people’s utopia might be someone else’s purgatory. He must lead an exodus—or risk a calamity of galactic proportions that even the Starship Enterprise is powerless to stop….”

As the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance rules, having overrun the Empire, destroying its fleet, and driving it back to Earth, rumors and propaganda spread throughout the Alpha Quadrant the news of the Empire’s final demise. Those rumors are, however, untrue. A handful of Imperial ships remain, intent on protecting Earth and what’s left of the Empire. And commanding the newest and most powerful of those ships is a man equally intent on seeing it rise again—Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Witness the epic struggle that will shake the Mirror Universe to its core! Collects issues #1–8 of Star Trek: The Mirror War.

And in the finale, at the rise of a new dawn for the Terran Empire, Deanna Troi reflects on how far her ambition has driven her on her calculating quest to seek power and escape among the stars.
