As noted in our latest book review, the rest of 2023 is devoid of any new Star Trek novel releases. But that will change in early 2024 with the release of a Star Trek: Picard tie-in novel.
Seven’s story in Star Trek: Picard: Firewall
Pocket Books has revealed Star Trek: Picard: Firewall, a new novel written by fan-favorite author David Mack. Due on February 27, 2024 the book is touted as a “thrilling prequel adventure” to Star Trek: Picard. The official indicates this book focuses on Seven of Nine:
Two years after the USS Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, Seven of Nine finds herself rejected for a position in Starfleet…and instead finds a new home with the interstellar rogue law enforcement corps known as the Fenris Rangers. The Rangers seem like an ideal fit for Seven—but to embrace this new destiny, she must leave behind all she’s ever known, and risk losing the most important thing in her life: her friendship with Admiral Kathryn Janeway.
After the book was revealed, Mack offered some insights on Twitter, including how he has wanted to tell this story for years. [NOTE: The artwork in Mack’s 2nd tweet is not the official cover art, which has yet to be revealed.]
P.S. This is a story I've wanted to tackle for a long time. The moment I first heard Seven mention the Fenris Rangers I emailed my editor asking to write this tale. It took 3 years to get permission.

More Seven Fenris Rangers adventures
If you are looking for more Fenris Ranger adventures with Seven, last year Simon & Schuster released a full-cast audio adventure titled Star Trek: Picard No Man’s Land, which includes Jeri Ryan and Michelle Hurd voicing Seven and Raffi. It is available now on audiobook, audible and audio CD at Amazon.
Last year’s Star Trek: Picard – Stargazer comic mini-series also featured an exploration of Seven’s connection with the Fenris Rangers. A collected edition of the series was just released by IDW and you pick it up in paperback and Kindle ebook.
