Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cold Equations Book III – The Body Electric, set for release on December 26 via Pocket Books/Simon & Schuster, will close out David Mack’s blockbuster Cold Equations trilogy.

And here’s the official plot synopsis, straight from Pocket Books/Simon and Schuster: “At the center of the Galaxy, a planet-sized Machine of terrifying power and unfathomable purpose hurls entire star systems into a super-massive black hole. Wesley Crusher, now a full-fledged Traveler, knows the Machine must be stopped…but he has no idea how.

With time running out, Picard realizes he knows of only one person who might be able to stop the Machine in time to avert a galactic catastrophe—if only he knew any idea how to find him…”
