Star Trek Department of Temporal InvestigationsStar Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Forgotten History
By Christopher L. Bennett
Simon and Schuster/Pocket Books
Publish Date: April 28th, 2012
Paperback | Kindle

Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Forgotten History is the second in the series of Star Trek books that deal with the Federation’s Department of Temporal Investigations. If you don’t know what they do, that’s OK, here’s a little background. The DTI deals with crimes and incidents involving time travel and the possible alteration of the timeline. The department is made up of agents from all sorts of species from the Federation. Forgotten History starts off with DTI agents Garcia (who is human) and Agent Ranjea (who is a Deltan) on board the Starfleet vessel Everest which is on loan to the DTI. While on board the ship they stumble upon an anomaly in space that is bridging the years 2275 and 2383 together. In the middle of the anomaly is a ship that looks exactly like the Enterprise that James T. Kirk commanded, it even has the original engines on it. But it is called “Timeship II” and it belongs to the DTI. As soon as the ship is found, Garcia and Ranjea contact DTI headquarters and tell not only the director but two top notch human agents named Dulmur and Lucsly (if any of you are familiar with the two agents they were introduced in the Deep Space Nine episode Trials and Tribble-ations).

Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Watching The ClockStar Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Watching The Clock
The Next Generation
By Christopher L. Bennett
Simon and Schuster | Pocket Books
Paperback | Kindle
Release Date: April 26, 2011

Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Watching the Clock is one of the most unique Star Trek: The Next Generation books I have read. Even though this book has been out for a year, I decided to read it anyway and find out what it was all about. It has one of my favorite Star Trek topics, which is time travel.

The book starts off with two agents from the Department of Temporal Investigations (which deals with time travel laws and regulations and sometimes detective work on temporal crimes) named Gariff Lucsly and Marion Dulmur who are investigating a temporal displacement of a Federation starship that has been found after being lost in time for 16 years. On board the ship Lucsly and Dulmur find an interesting young woman named Teresa Garcia and recruit her to become a new agent at the DTI.

No New ‘Star Trek’ Books For Summer 2010

star trek david mack novelPocket Books has indefinitely postponed the release of four planned new Star Trek universe tie-in novels, all of which had storylines that take place just after the events of JJ Abrams’ Star Trek film, so as to not interfere with the film’s sequel plans.

After the huge success of Abrams’ Star Trek movie, which was released in theaters May 2009, Pocket Books had announced their plans to release the four new Trek tie-in novels in Summer 2010. Just last week, TrekMovie posted the summaries and preliminary covers for the planned books.

The novels were written by some big name scifi/Trek authors — Alan Dean Foster, Christopher L. Bennett, David Mack, and Greg Cox — which makes this postponement news even more disappointing for Trek fans [i.e., me].
