Is it February already? Simon & Schuster will release Star Trek: The Original Series: Allegiance in Exile early next year, and has an exclusive First Look at the Kirk-centric cover and details about the upcoming title. Allegiance in Exile, penned by David R. George, will be available in both print and Ebook editions, and priced at $7.99.

Here’s the synopsis, straight from Simon & Schuster:

“A beautiful green world, rich in fertile soil and temperate climate… a textbook Class-M planet that should be teeming with life. Scans show no life-signs, but there are refined metals, including those associated with a space-faring race… and a lone city. But where are all of the inhabitants? Captain James T.Kirk leads a landing party from the U.S.S. Enterprise, hoping to get some answers. The away team discovers a city in ruins, covered by dust, utterly bereft of life. Tricorder readings indicate that this is no ancient metropolis -- it has been deserted only for a year. And just beyond the citadel lies what appears to be an ancient spaceport… a graveyard of ships that have clearly been sabotaged. With these ruins too far from either the Klingon or the Romulan Empires, the Enterprise crew can only wonder: Who could have done this? And could this unnamed threat now pose an imminent danger to the Federation?”

Keep an eye on for additional details about Allegiance in Exile.
