NEWS: Back cover blurb for Forgotten History



This news is a few days old, but I felt like sharing it anyway.  Pocket Books has released the back cover blurb for Christopher L. Bennett's upcoming Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations: Forgotten History:

The agents of the Department of Temporal Investigations are assigned to look into an anomaly that has appeared deep in Federation territory.  It's difficult to get clear readings, but a mysterious inactive vessel lies at the heart of the anomaly, one outfitted with some sort of temporal drive disrupting space-time and subspace.  To the agents' shock, the ship bears a striking resemblance to a Constitution-class starship, and its warp signature matches that of the original Federation starship Enterprise NCC-1701--the ship of James T. Kirk, that infamous bogeyman of temporal investigators, whose record of violations is held up by DTI agents as a cautionary tale for Starfleet recklessness toward history.  But the vessel's hull markings identify it as Timeship Two, belonging to none other than the DTI itself.  At first, Agents Lucsly and Dulmur assume the ship is from some other timeline ... but its quantum signature confirms that it came from their own past, despite the fact that the DTI never possessed such a timeship.  While the anomaly is closely monitored, Lucsly and Dulmur must search for answers in the history of Kirk's Enterprise and its many encounters with time travel--a series of events with direct ties to the origins of the DST itself ...

Forgotten History is the second novel in the Department of Temporal Investigations series.  The first novel, Watching the Clock, was released last year.  You can read my review of it here.  Forgotten History is due to be released at the end of April 2012.  You may pre-order it from Amazon.com by clicking here.
