Missing a regular dose of Trek in your life? Thankfully the Star Trek novel line continues to keep the Star Trek universe alive, with new adventures every month set after, and amongst, the events of the TV and film series. On top of that, the recently revived and expanded ebook line gives us an episode-feel novella every other month. So today TrekMovie takes a look at what is coming up in Star Trek fiction over the next year.
The next Star Trek film is due in 2016, but fans want to know exactly when. Could it be on the 50th anniversary?

TrekMovie has invited Hollywood writer/producer (and release date bingo aficionado) Kay Reindl to take a look at the 2016 landscape. Read the full analysis.
One of the biggest debates for fans is Kirk v Picard, but what is unusual is for one of the creative forces behind Star Trek to pick a side – but that is what Brannon Braga did in a recent interview.

Today is the 4th of July – celebrated as Independence Day in the USA. In the future history of Star Trek, the USA ceased to exist after World War III, but the principles that founded the nation lived on. And being that James T.
