Star Trek: Seekers is a forthcoming novel series created by David Mack, Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. It will be a sequel to the events of Star Trek: Vanguard and feature many of Vanguard's characters, ships and settings. Seekers will be a return to Star Trek's original ideology of "seeking out new worlds and new civilizations" and will center on the USS Endeavour and the USS Sagittarius as they explore the Taurus Reach.
The inspiration for Seekers came from the authors desire to continue their creative partnership once the Vanguard series finished, and from the imaginary series "The Seekers" created by Rob Caswell. Mack had seen Caswell's 1970s-style cover art of the faux-book series, itself inspired by the anthologies of The Original Series episode adaptations by James Blish.
As originally envisaged, the Seekers novels were not to have names, instead they were to be numbered, just like the TOS anthologies, however names for the first two novels have been released. Second Nature is due to debut at the Shore Leave convention in 2014 and will be written by David Mack. Point of Divergence is due for general release a month later, in September, and will be written by Ward & Dilmore. These first two novels will be a single two-part story to launch the series, with following novels being more of a stand-alone type.
