Earlier this year we reported that Simon & Schuster’s Spotlight brand is launching a new young adult series of books tied into the new 2009 Star Trek movie. We now have some more details on these first two novels to tell stories in the new movie universe, including titles, dates and a brief description of the setting for the series.

Both titles will be released simultaneously in hardcover, ($14.99), paperback ($7.99) and ebook ($7.99).
Today S&S also provided us with the following brief synopsis on the series:
Set in 2250, six months after James Kirk joined Starfleet Academy, this young adult series will delve into the lives and relationships of Kirk and the other recruits at the Academy including their training, their missions and their romances.
