Star Trek: Picard will receive a new novel titled Second Self by Una McCormack.
A new Star Trek novel is on the way, and it will be here in just 10 months. Yes, a new novel due out in the spring of 2022 is going to come out and seek to tie some events together and help bridge the gap between Picard season one and Picard season two.
The fourth book to carry some sort of connection to the Picard series won’t feature Jean-Luc Picard, but it will feature Raffi (Michelle Hurd). The book is called Other self by Una McCormack, who has already written a previous book in the Picard book series.
The official description of the book by Simon and Schuster is below.
Following the explosive events of the first season of Star Trek: Picard, Raffi Musiker finds himself torn between returning to his old life as a Starfleet intelligence officer or something a little more tame – teaching at the Academy. , perhaps. The decision is made for her when a message from an old contact – a Romulan spy – is received, asking for immediate help. With the help of Cristobal Rios and Dr Agnes Jurati, and the help of Jean-Luc Picard, Raffi decides to take on this crucial mission and quickly learns that the sins of the past never remain buried. Finding the truth will be complicated, and deadlyâ¦.
The book can set up the second season of Star Trek: Picard to some extent.
The book will go on sale after the events of the second season of Star Trek: Picard. Which makes it a book that can help answer lingering questions left by the series. We cannot fully understand how canonical these books really are at this time. Most of the literature is hit or miss with its accepted place in canon, and many books are sometimes seen in Star Trek as a filler piece without being technically canon.
We’ve seen Star Wars mismanage their canon for years, making just about every book released, and then when Disney bought the franchise, making all of those books and comics more hot.
Star Trek has never mass-erased something like this, but with so much fan influence and fan-made creations, it can be hard to really know what canon is, what is based on the canon, or what is just one person’s idea of ââwhat Star Trek should be like.
For those curious about the book, it will be released on April 26, 2022.
