Following the events in "A Tale of Two Captains", Commander Kang finds himself in a position to complete the alliance with the Union that Chancellor Gorkon wants.
  But Klingon Ambassador Kochon is dead set against it.
  Kang has fought and won many battles in his years of service to the Empire. Can he survive this one long enough to compete his mission- or will his own people be the death of him?

The first Nova Trek Novel. With a big Thank you to Mylochka for doing the cover art!

I loved it. Full of fast-paced action.

Thank you. I just felt that Kang's mission wasn't over with the end of "A Tale of Two Captains." He needed one more story to finish things. This is also where his and Rayannah's relationship starts.

This and the others like it should be published.

They have been- in a way. There's a group known as Trek United. They have a "Publishing arm" for fan fiction. All of my Nova Trek books are available through them on a site called Issuu. Free of course. You can't legally sell 'Trek stuff without permission. So all the fan fiction we deal with is free to download.
This site'll give you some idea of what we're doing: [link]

I don't know. I tried it just now and it loaded fine. The only artwork is the coverart. Try again, maybe it was just a glitch mor the connection was tied up- that's happened to me before.

Dang man. I'm taking notes reading this stuff on how you do plot development. Well done!! Like how this came together so well too.

Thank you. This one was not planned ahead like the graphoc novels. With those I wrote out all the story outlines before I ever started- then they got revised and updated as I went along. But this one, the idea came to me when I was finishing Part 3 of ATOTC. Kang's mission wasn't really over and there wasn't room to deal with it in the remaining GNs. So a novel seemed the only other way to go.

Well, being a parallel universe, Nova Trek doesn't have to strictly hold to the established cannon. If I want to bring things in sooner than they happened in 'Trek Prime, I'm free to do so. The real trick is to do it while still keeping it Star Trek.
When I started this project, I said that some events happened, some happened differently and some never happened at all- and the events that will/do/did happen, did not so in the same way they did in TOS. A Prime example of that is the whole Romulan situation. In TOS, the Romulans wre introduced in "A Balance in Terror". In Nova Trek, they were introduced in "Gains and Losses" which is set 3 years into the mission- at least 2 years later than it happen in TOS. Again, in TOS, you have "The Enterprise Incident". In Nova Trek, you have "A Tale of Two Captains".
I've made refernces to other "events" in the books. In "Gains and Losses" I had to explain Jan and Spock's marriage- which meant a re-telling of "Amok Time", "The Naked Time" and "Where No Man Has Gone Before". In Book Two "Guardian's Child", there's a silent panel refering to the Nova Trek verison of "City on the Edge of Forever" Where, prior to the marriage, Jan fell in love with Edward Keeler. Again, the trick was keeping things Trek while at the same time allowing it to be Nova Trek.
The whole concept seems to be working alot better than I expected.

Correction: TNG era of 2364-2379, sorry. :XD:

Liked how with the characters mentioned in here you paid homages to stuff that went on with the Klingons during the TNG era of 2264 to 2279, giving hints as to some of the characters that may have been at play to plant those seeds in the 23rd Century.
Or Gaila as Captain or Commander on the Enterprise in gold. :)
Love the story...:)

I was wondering you taking crew member or ideas?

not at the moment. I made sure to write down all the story outlines for the graphic novels. This one was a last minute deal- the idea just- litterally- poped into my head. Started with the idea of Kang finishing his mission and it grew from there.
Glad you liked it though. Thanks.
I still like a Orion pirate work for Starfleet.:)

I loved it! All of it was awesome!
mdbruffy's avatar
Thank you. The idea came to me as I was finishing Part 3- I was making notes for over a week before I sat down and actually started writing.

Well, it turned out really well.
