Star Trek: The Next Generation: Armageddon's Arrow is the latest novel by Dayton Ward, bestselling Trek author (That Which Divides, Vanguard: Declassified) and longtime StarTrek.com guest blogger. Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books will release Armageddon's Arrow as its June title, officially out on May 26. It boasts a cover by Doug Drexler and Ali Ries. Here's the synopsis straight from the publisher:
It is a new age of exploration, and the U.S.S. Enterprise is dispatched to “the Odyssean Pass,” a region charted only by unmanned probes and believed to contain numerous inhabited worlds. Approaching a star system with two such planets, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew find a massive alien vessel, drifting in interstellar space for decades. Sensors detect life aboard the derelict—aliens held in suspended animation.
Thought to be an immense sleeper ship, the vessel actually is a weapon capable of destroying entire worlds . . . the final gambit in a war that has raged for generations across the nearby system. Now caught in the middle of this conflict, Captain Picard attempts to mediate, as both sides want this doomsday weapon . . . which was sent from the future with the sole purpose of ending the interplanetary war before it even began!
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Armageddon's Arrow runs 400 pages and will be available as a mass market paperback and eBook priced at $7.99 in the U.S. and $9.99 in Canada. Go to simonandschuster.com to pre-order it.
