Pocket Books have released the first 2 covers for the upcoming Star Trek: Seekers series written by David Mack, Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. Star Trek fan Rob Caswell designed the covers.
“We wanted to bring Rob aboard as our creative partner on the new series, since it had been his imaginative leap that had brought the vision into focus for us,” says David Mack, author of the first Seekers novel Second Nature (out July 22).
“One of the best moments of my career as a Star Trek writer was the afternoon when I got to be the one to call Rob and tell him that his work had inspired us to make his imaginary series a reality in prose.”
Star Trek: Seekers, which is a sequel to the Star Trek: Vanguard series of books. Written by the Vanguard authors David Mack, Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. Seekers will feature two ships, the Constitution-class USS Endeavour and Archer-class USS Sagittarius. This will include characters from the Vanguard series and continue their ongoing mission of exploration in the Taurus Reach.
Book 1 – Second Nature by David Mack
A new mission: The late twenty-third century—Starfleet’s golden age of exploration. Desperate to stay one step ahead of its rivals, the Federation sends two starships, the scout Sagittarius and the cruiser Endeavour, to plumb the secrets of the vast region known as the Taurus Reach.
A doomed race: Drawn by mysterious energy readings to a lush green world, the crew of the Sagittarius find the Tomol: a species whose members all commit ritual suicide just as they reach the cusp of adulthood.
An old foe: The crew of the Sagittarius wants to save the Tomol from their cycle of self-destruction, but first they’ll need to save themselves—from the most nefarious Klingon starship commander in history.

Book 2 – Point of Divergence by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore
The second novel set in The Original Series/Vanguard universe…
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!
