Could The Next Star Trek TV Series Already Be Mapped Out?

USS Enterprise

For the first time in my lifetime, the primary association people make with Star Trek is not a TV show, but a movie. J.J. Abrams and his Star Trek reboot/reimagining/whatever have pulled off the once-impossible task of making Trek seem cool again, and six years after the last Trek TV series Star Trek: Enterprise went off the air, it's entirely up to Abrams and Paramount to keep showing us what's happening in the version of outer space explored by the Starship Enterprise. And yet, with so many more people interested in the Star Trek universe, it's only a matter of time before the stories return to TV as well.

This happened when we spoke to Saldana just this afternoon. The topics: Thundercats, Jem and the Holograms, Transformers and G.I. Joe.

Here is how they describe this new e-Book (beware of spoilers):

An original e-novella in the acclaimed Typhon Pact series! The Enterprise-E is on a diplomatic mission to the Talarian Republic, the last holdout in the Federation's efforts to expand the Khitomer Accords in response to the emergence of the Typhon Pact. In the wake of Andor's recent secession, the Federation is more concerned than ever with strengthening its alliances. The Talarians have been a tenuous potential partner at best, given the history of conflict and mistrust between them and the Federation. But the negotiations between Picard and the Talarians are disrupted by a growing public protest of those who are demanding greater rights—and before long, it becomes clear that the dissidents are not limiting themselves to nonviolent means….
