June is officially “Audiobook Month,” and Simon & Schuster Audio celebrates the occasion today by releasing a recording of Star Trek: Enigma Tales. Enigma Tales comes on the heels of Hearts and Minds, which was released a few weeks ago. StarTrek.com is pleased to share details about both adventures, as well as audiobook excerpts featuring narrator Robert Petkoff.

Enigma Tales comes from author Una McCormack, the New York Times bestselling author of The Fall: The Crimson Shadow, Typhon Pact: Brinksmanship and The Missing. Here's the official synopsis of the suspenseful story of politics and power set in the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine:

Elim Garak has ascended to Castellan of the Cardassian Union...but despite his soaring popularity, the imminent publication of a report exposing his people's war crimes during the occupation on Bajor looks likely to set the military against him. Into this tense situation come Dr. Katherine Pulaski—visiting Cardassia Prime to accept an award on behalf of the team that solved the Andorian genetic crisis—and Dr. Peter Alden, formerly of Starfleet Intelligence. The two soon find themselves at odds with Garak and embroiled in the politics of the prestigious University of the Union, where a new head is about to be appointed. Among the front-runners is one of Cardassia’s most respected public figures: Professor Natima Lang. But the discovery of a hidden archive from the last years before the Dominion War could destroy Lang’s reputation. As Pulaski and Alden become drawn into a deadly game to exonerate Lang, their confrontation escalates with Castellan Garak—a conflicted leader treading a fine line between the bright hopes for Cardassia’s future and the dark secrets still buried in its past...

And then there's Hearts and Minds, a Star Trek: The Next Generation story by veteran Trek author Dayton Ward, like McCormack, a New York Times bestselling writer. Here's the official synopsis.

2031: United States Air Force fighter jets shoot down an unidentified spacecraft and take its crew into custody. Soon, it’s learned that the ship is one of several dispatched across space by an alien species, the Eizand, to search for a new home before their own world becomes uninhabitable. Fearing extraterrestrial invasion, government and military agencies which for more than eighty years have operated in secret swing into action, charged with protecting humanity no matter the cost...

2386: Continuing their exploration of the Odyssean Pass, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise discover what they at first believe is a previously uncharted world, with a civilization still recovering from the effects of global nuclear war. An astonishing priority message from Starfleet Command warns that there’s more to this planet than meets the eye, and Picard soon realizes that the mysteries of this world may well weave through centuries of undisclosed human history...
