Updated Star Trek Book Schedule

Pocket Books has released its 2010 schedule of Star Trek books now that the four Star Trek movie books are no longer planned. Other then the removal the rest of the scheduled remains mostly on track from the one released last year. Full details here, brief summary below.

In general, most of the books set on DS9, the Next Generation Enterprise, etc all take place post in the post Star Trek: Nemesis era but around 20 years before the events of JJ Abram's Star Trek movie or 50 years before Star Trek Online's timeframe. The Typhon Pact (below) is a new coalition between the "evil" Star Trek races of Romulans, Tholians, Gorn, Breen, Tzenkethi, and Kinshaya that was a response to the near destruction of their universe by a Borg Invasion in the Destiny series of books. The Borg was defeated but the Federation suffered huge losses with multiple worlds and cities destroyed. This creates a unique opportunity of expansion that the Pact hopes to take advantage of.
