Veteran Star Trek author Christopher L. Bennett will return to the scene of the time --  pun intended -- with his latest Trek tale, Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: The Collectors, an e-novella due out on December 8 from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Star. Bennett's many previous Trek credits include Enterprise: Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel, Titan: Over a Torrent Sea, The Next Generation: Greater Than the Sum, and the Department of Temporal Investigations stories, Forgotten History and Watching the Clock.

Here's the synopsis for The Collectors, direct from Simon & Schuster:

The dedicated agents of the Federation Department of Temporal Investigations have their work cut out for them protecting the course of history from the dangers of time travel. But the galaxy is littered with artifacts that, in the wrong hands, could threaten reality. One of the DTI's most crucial jobs is to track down these objects and lock them safely away in the Federation’s most secret and secure facility. When Agents Lucsly and Dulmur bring home an alien obelisk of incredible power, they are challenged by a 31st-century temporal agent who insists they surrender the mysterious artifact to her. But before they know it, the three agents are pulled into a corrupted future torn apart by a violent temporal war. While their DTI colleagues attempt to track them down, Lucsly and Dulmur must restore temporal peace by setting off on an epic journey through the ages, with the future of the galaxy hanging in the balance...

Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: The Collectors will cost $2.99 for the Kindle Edition. Visit to pre-order it.
