Let the Vanguard party begin!
The on-sale date for Storming Heaven, the final volume in the Star Trek Vanguard saga, is less than three weeks away: TUESDAY, MARCH 27, 2012.
That means it’s time for me to start rolling out some fun stuff.
I’ve added a special page to my website — Star Trek Vanguard: The Finale Page.
To kick off the beginning of the end for the saga I helped nurture into existence seven years ago, I’m sharing a little bit of behind-the-scenes content from the series’ development:
- An early design schematic that shows a much larger footprint for the station;
- Masao Okazaki‘s exterior and interior designs for the U.S.S. Sagittarius;
- My internal memos about the plucky scout ship’s crew and capabilities;
- and links to past interviews, blog posts, and podcasts about the saga.
Another fun treat: a special desktop wallpaper image composed of the eight original cover art images from the series, rendered by Doug Drexler.
Need more? When fellow Vanguard author Dayton Ward moved his website a while back, his annotations for the series’ second book, Summon the Thunder, got lost in the shuffle. Now those annotations make their triumphant return via my website (with his permission, of course). Also, I’d never gotten around to annotating the third book, Reap the Whirlwind … until now. That’s right, Vanguard fans — brand-new annotations for the series’ pivotal volume.
In the weeks to come, I plan to add more content to the page, including Vanguard‘s original series bible, the post-Harbinger addendum to the series bible, and new audio interviews and podcasts with myself, Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore, and Marco Palmieri.
So stick around, folks — the party’s just getting started!
