Star Trek: The Lost Era is a book series that chronicles the events occurring between James T. Kirk's presumed death aboard the USS Enterprise-B in 2293 and the Cardassian withdrawal from Bajor in 2369.

The series attempts to flesh out some events that were only mentioned briefly in the TV series, such as the Tomed Incident and the Betreka Nebula Incident. It also helps to provide a backstory to recurring book characters such as Leonard James Akaar, Elias Vaughn, and Dr. Selar.

There are currently eleven novels in the series, the most recent being One Constant Star, released in 2014. A novel had been tentatively planned, which would deal with Benjamin Sisko on board the USS Okinawa during the Tzenkethi War. Christopher L. Bennett avoided specifics of the war in The Buried Age, in deference to the author of this anticipated novel. [1] However, with the departure of editor Marco Palmieri from Pocket Books in 2008, the future of this project is uncertain. Elements of the series appeared in the novel Rough Beasts of Empire.
