(written from a Production point of view)

Star Trek: Seekers is a forthcoming novel series from Pocket Books. Set in the Original Series era, the series will follow on from the events of Star Trek: Vanguard, returning two of that series' recurring starships to the Taurus Reach for an ongoing mission of exploration. Unlike Vanguard, the series will not follow a serialized storyline, but will be more stand-alone in its approach.
Announced at the Shore Leave convention in August 2013, the series will be written by David Mack and the pairing of Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore - as with Vanguard, the authors will alternate releases.
The series was partly inspired by the work of artist Rob Caswell , who was in turn inspired by the classic novel covers of the James Blish adaptations. Caswell will serve as cover artist for Seekers.
With regard to titles for each individual novel, Ward initially remarked that "[i]n the tradition of the Blish Star Trek adaptations, we’ve decided we’re going to just go with numbers for each new installment." ; however, because of issues relating to the logistics of the publishing industry, titles were required when the novels were officially solicited.
