Star Trek: Coda
FACES A CHALLENGE UNLIKE ANY OTHER
TOMORROW IS DOOMED
Time is coming apart. Countless alternate and parallel realities are under attack, weakening and collapsing from relentless onslaught. If left unchecked, the universe faces an unstoppable descent toward entropy.
WANDERER, ORACLE, ALLY
Scarred and broken after decades spent tracking this escalating temporal disaster while battling the nameless enemy responsible for it, an old friend seeks assistance from Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise. The apocalypse may originate from their future, but might the cause lie in their past?
EVERYTHING THAT WILL BE
Identifying their adversary is but the first step toward defeating them, but early triumphs come with dreadful costs. What will the price be to achieve final victory, and how will that success be measured in futures as yet undefined?
At long last, we’re finally here.
I’ve already written at length about the journey to this book and the trilogy of which it’s just the first part, so I’m not going to rehash it here. What I will tell you is that it is my 23rd Star Trek novel and the 19th I’ve written under the editorial guidance of Margaret Clark and Ed Schlesinger, representing Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint. I’ve been working with either or both of these folks for more than fifteen years. They don’t get nearly enough of the credit and thanks they so richly deserve, and that is most certainly true with Moments Asunder and indeed the entire Star Trek: Coda trilogy.
This is also the seventh Star Trek novel of mine to receive an audiobook adaptation. As with the previous titles, this new book benefits from the vocal stylings of the wonderful Robert Petkoff. A self-professed Star Trek fan himself, Mr. Petkoff always brings enthusiasm and passion to these projects, and I simply love listening to him breathe life into my pithy little words.
Moments Asunder is now available at bookstores everywhere, in trade paperback, e-Book, and both digital and CD audiobook editions. If you’re still one of those folks who loves going to an actual store for your reading material, I humbly suggest patronizing your local independent bookseller. If that sort of thing isn’t feasible for whatever reason, then of course we have other options:
Simon & Schuster
Barnes & Noble
Star Trek: Coda will continue on October 26th with Book II: The Ashes of Tomorrow by James Swallow, and conclude on October 30th with Book III: Oblivion’s Gate by David Mack.

Am I really the first person here to write a commentary on the book “Moments Asunder”? On the last pages of the book it says that I should thank you, dear Dayton, for sparing the readers long-winded “about the author” pages. OK, thank you very much for this saving and anyway thank you very much for the great, exciting Star Trek book. Vielen, lieben Dank! Keep it up! Well, I read the German translation, at warp-speed in 3 days. I hope my English was not so bad to understand now 🙂 Live long and prosper, Jürgen from Germany
