The new Star Trek Universe is branching into a new realm, the world of audio dramas, with a new Star Trek: Picard adventure voiced by two of the series’ stars.
Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land
Today, Simon & Schuster announced the new original audio drama Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land, which is being voiced by series stars Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine and Michelle Hurd as Raffi Musiker. The new audio adventure is written by Picard co-creator and writer Kirsten Beyer along with Star Trek comics veteran writer Mike Johnson.
According to the announcement, the adventure is set between season one and season two. Here is the synopsis:
While Seven of Nine and Raffi are enjoying some much needed R&R in Raffi’s remote hideaway, their downtime is interrupted by an urgent cry for help: A distant, beleaguered planet has enlisted the Fenris Rangers to save an embattled evacuation effort. As Seven and Raffi team up to rescue a mysteriously ageless professor whose infinity-shaped talisman has placed him in the deadly sights of a vicious Romulan warlord, they take tentative steps to explore the attraction depicted in the final moments of Picard season one.
No Man’s Land is being made exclusively for audio, something not seen in Star Trek since the 1990s. In addition to Raffi and Seven, the audio drama includes a full cast playing all-new characters including a Romulan warlord, a Fenris Ranger, various exotic alien species, and more. The voice cast includes Fred Tatasciore (Shaxs on Star Trek: Lower Decks), John Kassir (Cryptkeeper on HBO’s Tales from the Crypt), and John Cutmore-Scott (a featured character on the ABC series Deception). In addition, it will feature actual Star Trek: Picard sound effects such as transporters, weapons, explosions, and more.
Star Trek: Picard: No Man’s Land will be released on February 22nd. You can pre-order on Audible.
The second season of Star Trek: Picard was originally announced for February; however, with Discovery taking a hiatus and returning with more episodes on February 10, it’s reasonable to assume season two of Picard may be pushed back a few weeks.
