Cross Cult is a German publisher, which, since 2008, has published German translations of Star Trek novels originally produced by Pocket Books, and comics from IDW Publishing. Many of Cross Cult's editions of the books feature new cover artwork, and their comics are typically released in both paperback and hardcover editions. Cross Cult translations have also been used by to produce German audiobooks of several Star Trek books.

Starting in April 2011 Cross Cult will also publish eBook versions of their releases, starting with the first books of the TNG relaunch, the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy and Enterprise. [1][2]


Cross Cult's prose releases have so far been restricted to a handful of novel series; Vanguard, Titan, the DS9 and TNG relaunches, and Star Trek: Destiny.

In April 2010 it was announced that three additional series would be added to the Cross Cult program in 2011: New Frontier, Enterprise and The Original Series.[3]

In November 2010 the Typhon Pact miniseries was announced for a German release in 2012[4].

Cross Cult started to publish German translations of IDW's Star Trek comics in 2009, both in Soft- and hardcover format.

Because of lower than excepted sales of the comics they published after the very successful Countdown it was announced in September 2010 that there wouldn't be any more translations in those formats in the foreseeable future.[5]

In April 2011 Cross Cult announced a test release of the Star Trek trade peperback McCoy, the translation of the Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor mini series for August 2011. In contrast to previous releases which where published in both hard- and softcover, McCoy will only be released in a softcover format. [6]
