In 2016, the German publisher Cross Cult — which publishes German translations of the Star Trek novels — was given a special license to publish an original Trek work for the franchise’s 50th anniversary. The Star Trek: Prometheus trilogy — featuring a ship that was introduced in the Voyager episode “Message in a Bottle” and taking place right after Simon & Schuster’s Star Trek: The Fall miniseries — was written by Bernd Perplies & Christian Humberg and released as part of the 50th anniversary hoopla.
Cross Cult also had foreign rights to the trilogy, and they sold the English-language rights to Titan, who just released Book 1: Fire with Fire, with Books 2 and 3 due out in 2018.
I mention this because the translation was edited by me! (I’m not actually credited in the book, which surprised me, but whatever.) I took the raw translation from German to English and edited it into something smoother and made sure the dialogue sounded cleaner (and in the case of existing characters like Spock, matched the established voices), and so on. It’s still very much Bernd & Christian’s work, as my job was to bring out their voices in English, and I think I did a decent job.
