The Phi Phi
books database has added the cover art for two upcoming STAR TREK: LOST ERA novels. THE LOST ERA: THE SUNDERED is written by Michael A. Martin
and Andy Mangels
and follows the lost voyage of the Starship Excelsior under the command of Hikaru Sulu in 2298:
"Unprecedented peace talks with the violently xenophobic Tholian Assembly trigger a deadly confrontation aboard the Excelsior. Now Sulu and his crew -- including Chekov, Rand, Chapel, Tuvok, and Akaar -- are thrust into an unexpected conflict between the Tholians and a mysterious new enemy, the Neyel whose origins, if revealed, could lead to war with Earth itself.
"As the Tholians weave a web of vengeance, the Excelsior is flung beyond the galaxy to discover the hidden truth about the alien Neyel, forcing Sulu to question where his responsibilities lie -- with the fragile peace he must preserve, or with the victims of his own world's tragic past."
THE SUNDERED is scheduled for publication in August 2003. You can pre-order the book from any of the following merchants to help support TrekWeb:

ravaging a region of space dangerously close to the Romulan Star
apparently confirming suspicions that the Federation has begun testing
weapon of mass destruction.
"As the military buildup accelerates on both sides of the Neutral Zone,
Captain John Harriman of the Federation flagship USS Enterprise,
is fated for a final confrontation with his oldest enemy at a
history-with the Beta Quadrant one wrong move from the outbreak of
