Star Trek: Prodigy is joining the list of properties to receive tie-in novels.
The Star Trek universe has been booming with novels, games, and comic books that not only involve the newer properties but the older ones as well such as The Mirror Universe which features the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast. One of the youngest of the newer series, Star Trek: Prodigy, already has a game, Star Trek: Prodigy: Supernova, planned to release in October. And joining Supernova will be a middle-grade adventure book with the same title. The novel, according to details provided by Trekmovie, is being written by Robb Pearlman, who has written more than sixty books, and has a January release date and can be pre-ordered now. No cover art has been revealed as of yet, but here is the official synopsis:
"When the Protostar crash-lands in a peculiar star system, the crew ends up separated and Dal and Gwyn must work together to find their missing crewmates. They don’t have much time, though: the nearby star is destabilized and in danger of creating a supernova. Then Dal and Gwyn discover evil droids patrolling the area, and they look just like the Watchers back in Tars Lamora. How will Dal and Gwyn confront this nightmare from their past…and prevent an explosion in their near future?"
One novel isn’t enough for Star Trek: Prodigy.
Joining Supernova in January 2023 will be another middle-grade adventure novel to tie-in with Prodigy titled A Dangerous Trade, written by Cassandra Rose Clark. who also wrote a tie-in novel for Halo. It, too, is available for pre-order. There isn’t an official cover yet, but here’s the official synopsis:
"While traveling through the Delta Quadrant, the Protostar crew discovers a worn transporter coil on their ship. Despite Janeway’s misgivings, the crew decides to trade a Starfleet-issued battery for new transporter parts at a market on a distant planet. Little do they know that a group of rogue traders are intent on getting their hands on something much bigger: the Protostar! Will the crew be able to defend their ship and stay out of trouble? Star Trek fans will love this brand-new, original story featuring all the heart, humor, and action of the Prodigy series."
For those of us who can’t get enough of Dal and the crew of the Protostar, these novels will come as a welcome addition to the Star Trek: Prodigy series.
