A list of releases from now until the end of 2009 has already been put out on the web by Pocket Books. Essentially, there will be books from all five of the TV shows as well as entries from non-TV based series such as Titan, New Frontier, Corps of Engineers, and Vanguard. There will also be a couple of anthologies covering different aspects and eras of the Trek Universe.

The "big event" that Pocket Books has in works for next year is a limited series called "Destiny" that will pretty much impact all the 24th-Century titles. TNG, DS9, and VOY will continue with books set after their television runs that will supposedly take the characters and premises into new directions.

ENT also will continue forward with adventures set after its television run now that it's more or less retconned "These Are The Voyages..."--future releases will include a story about the original Kobayashi Maru as well as a trade paperback detailing the Earth-Romulus War.

TOS books will include some set during Kirk's 5-year mission as well as one featuring Captain April during the Enterprise's early years....

The full list can be seen here at TrekToday:

Yup! But They've Been Saying No Trek @ Comic Con, Or Is That Just Paramount? I'm Confused Here!

He'll be there, but he'll be there promoting his new FOX tv show, NOT Star Trek.
