Star Trek: Seekers 2 -- Point of Divergence, the second tale set in The Original Series/Vanguard universe, is out now from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books. Longtime friends and frequent collaborators Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore joined forces once again to pen the tome, and here's a synopsis straight from the publisher:

The Taurus Reach. Once the conquered realm of a powerful alien species, this region remains largely shrouded in mystery even as it brims with potential for exploration and colonization. The Federation has sent in two of its finest starships on a quest to uncover the secrets it may yet hold...

The Tomol are a primitive civilization occupying a lone island on a remote world. Their culture is an enigma, centered on every member’s commitment to a painful, fiery self-sacrifice upon reaching maturity. But one of their clan has shunned this obligation, triggering a transformation into a new, powerful life form. Answering the distress call of the U.S.S. Sagittarius—which has crashed on the planet following a fierce battle with the Klingons—Captain Atish Khatami and the crew of the Starship Endeavour must now attempt a rescue mission…even as they are locked in battle with the evolving, increasingly malevolent Tomol who, if allowed to escape their home world, pose an imminent threat to the entire galaxy!

Star Trek: Seekers 2 -- Point of Divergence runs 368 pages, is available as a mass market paperback and eBook, and costs $7.99. Visit to purchase.
