StarTrek.com is pleased to reveal that in the summer of 2016, Cross Cult will publish the very first official Star Trek novels written by German authors. The trilogy of adventures, to be called Star Trek: Prometheus, will be penned by acknowledged Star Trek experts Bernd Perplies and Christian Humberg. They'll be released in June, August and September.
Cross Cult is known as the publisher of German editions of current Star Trek novels and comic books, as well as of The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, James Bond, Aliens and many more. A translation of Prometheus into English eBooks is in the works, with other iterations under consideration. Additionally, German illustrator Tobias Richter will provide the Prometheus covers. He is already familiar to Trek fans for his work on the Ships of the Line calendars and several fan films.
And here's a synopsis of Prometheus, as translated by the publisher:
In November 2385, the United Federation of the Planets is at a historic turning point: not only among the ranks of the Starfleet hope is risen but after the terrors of the recent past, to return to the peaceful discovery of space. However, just when the United Federation of the Planets and the Starfleet is in hope of finding peace, a new threat arises at the horizon.
The Starfleet sends off the U.S.S. Prometheus, one of the most powerful ships, when just at the same time new tensions between the Federation and the Klingon empire arise.
