Star Trek: Discovery – Die Standing wins 2021 Scribe Award

I’m honored to be able to share that STAR TREK: DISCOVERY – DIE STANDING has received the 2021 Scribe Award for Best Original Novel – Speculative from the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers. It’s my second one in this category — following  in 2014 — and I’m especially thankful because Die Standing came out during the pandemic, and I’ve been looking forward to the chance to introduce more people to the novel. I very much appreciate the IAMTW and its judges for considering the book.

My thanks go to my editor Margaret Clark, to Kirsten Beyer with the Discovery writer’s room, to Ed Schlesinger, Dayton Ward, and Scott Pearson with Gallery Books, and to John Van Citters and the crew at CBS, and to my proofreaders Brent Frankenhoff and Meredith Miller. And of course, to Michelle Yeoh for portraying such an amazing pair of characters in Captain Georgiou/Emperor Georgiou, helping to inspire the book.

Finally, much respect goes to my fellow nominees James Lovegrove, Greg Keyes, David Mack, and Dayton Ward, in whose company I was honored to be included. Great books, all — check them out!

About the Book

Winner of the 2021 Scribe Award for Best Media Tie-in Novel (Speculative)!

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?
