Star Trek fans were thrilled to see Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis appear as William Riker and Deanna Troi in Star Trek: Picard. In the series, we learned that the two former Starfleet offers had retired and are now living a peaceful life on the planet of Nepenthe.
Well, if you’re interested in learning more about the two characters and their adventures on the USS Titan and the role they played in events that took place after the attack on Mars, there’s a new book coming out that you might be interested in checking out!
The book is titled Star Trek: Picard: The Dark Veil, which was written by veteran Star Trek author James Swallow. This is the second Star Trek: Picard tie-in book. The first one that was released was Star Trek: Picard: The Last Best Hope.
Here’s the synopsis from Simon and Schuster:
The Alpha Quadrant is mired in crisis. Within the United Federation of Planets, a terrorist strike on the shipyards of Mars has led to the shutdown of all relief efforts for millions of Romulans facing certain doom from an impending supernova. But when the USS Titan is drawn into a catastrophic incident on the Romulan-Federation border, Captain William Riker, his family, and his crew find themselves caught between the shocking secrets of an enigmatic alien species and the deadly agenda of a ruthless Tal Shiar operative. Forced into a wary alliance with a Romulan starship commander, Riker and the Titan crew must uncover the truth to stop a devastating attack—but one wrong move could plunge the entire sector into open conflict!
The first time that Star Trek fans actually get to see the USS Titan in action was in the season finale of the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks.
Star Trek: Picard: The Dark Veil goes on sale on January 5th.
