One of the reasons I took the assignment that became my 2019 release, Star Trek: Discovery – The Enterprise War was because of my liking for the Mirror Universe sequence of the TV show’s first season — and my admiration for the bold move in bringing Emperor Georgiou into the Prime Universe. What, if anything, I wondered, would stop her from rebuilding her regime again?
I got the chance to answer at novel length with Star Trek: Discovery – Die Standing, which bows on 7/14. (Just remember Joe Friday’s badge number!)
(Updated: We now have the cover, seen at right!) Here’s the solicitation copy:
No one in the history of histories has lost more than Philippa Georgiou, ruler of the Terran Empire. Forced to take refuge in the Federation’s universe, she bides her time until Section 31, a rogue spy force within Starfleet, offers her a chance to work as their agent. She has no intention of serving under anyone else, of course; her only interest is escape.
But when a young Trill, Emony Dax, discovers a powerful interstellar menace, Georgiou recognizes it as a superweapon that escaped her grasp in her own universe. Escorted by a team sent by an untrusting Federation to watch over her, the emperor journeys to a region forbidden to travelers. But will what she finds there end the threat — or give “Agent Georgiou” the means to create her old empire anew?
It’s a book full of surprises. Preorder links are propagating throughout the internet; you’ll find a few of them below.
There are no titles and copy with some of the links yet, but they will automatically populate throughout the weekend as systems update.
