john-jackson-millerJohn Jackson Miller’s upcoming Star Trek novel now has a title and is up for pre-orders. Star Trek: The Next Generation – Takedown is slated for a January 27, 2015 release in paperback. You can put your pre-orders in here on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and check out the blurb below.

An all-new novel of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one of the most popular Star Trek series of all-time, featuring the adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise!

When renegade starships wreak destruction across the quadrant, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are shocked to discover the mastermind behind this sudden threat: none other than Picard’s protégé and friend, Admiral William T. Riker. The newly minted admiral is on special assignment aboard the U.S.S. Aventine, helmed by Captain Ezri Dax—someone who is no stranger to breaking Starfleet regulations. Her starship is by far the faster vessel…and Riker cannot yield, even to his former mentor. It’s a battle of tactical geniuses and a race against time as Picard struggles to find answers before the quadrant’s great powers violently plunge into total war…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 82 has a complete rundown on 501st Legion events and con reports (a great way to catch up on what they’ve been up to and to get an idea of just what the 501st does) plus they have a nice little treat with audio clips of all the special Star Wars actor messages that were done for The Empire Strikes Back.

Assembly of Geeks:Taking Geek Characters to Court” starts out with Scott’s thoughts on Godzilla (pretty lite on spoilers) then cuts over to their special guest Jessica Mederson (Legal Geeks) who they talk with about Marvel, Star Wars, Samuel Jackson, and some fun geek legality ‘what ifs’. Note that Tricia is absent on this episode, but it’s still a good episode and worth checking out. Jessica turned out to be a really fun guest and I look forward to her returning in the future.

Bombad Radio: Episode 149 is yet another outstanding interview, this time with Star Wars author John Jackson Miller. John talks a little about his upcoming Star Wars Rebels novel A New Dawn, how the project got started, coordinating with the story group and later finding out the canon news and the new state of the EU. I thought it was very interesting to hear that he started the book not knowing it was going to end up being the first official canon novel. It’s also interesting to hear that he doesn’t consider this to just be a prequel story for the show but a fully fledged story anyone can jump into and enjoy. Plus he mentions how cool it is to finally write about TIE fighters. The hosts go one to ask John some questions on KOTOR, Knight Errant, Kenobi, the Lost Tribe, and then traverse into a very cool discussion on comics and the comic industry. I highly recommend giving this one a listen and be sure to check out John’s comic book site Comichron.

‘A New Dawn’ Mini-excerpt

Star Wars Books posted a mini-excerpt from John Jackson Miller’s upcoming novel A New Dawn.

It was time to move. Hera picked out the identifying transponder signal of a ship in the convoy. One button-push later, her ship was that vessel, as far as anyone trying to watch traffic was concerned. With practiced ease, she weaved her freighter into the chaotic flood of cargo ships heading to the moon. None of these guys can fly worth a flip, she thought. It was just as well it wasn’t a recruiting trip. She probably wouldn’t have found anyone worth her time.

A New Dawn will be out on September 2, 2014 in hardcover and digital formats. For more information, you can check out Random House’s official product page.
