Take a look at the cover art and synopsis for a brand new STAR TREK: PICARD tie in novel which focusses on the history of Cris Rios.



Star Trek: Picard - Rogue Elements (Simon & Schuster)

The world of Star Trek: Picard is set to expand further with the release of another tie-in novel exploring the history of Cris Rios. The captain of La Sirena will be the focus of Simon & Schuster’s upcoming Star Trek: Picard – Rogue Elements by author John Jackson Miller.

The book is set to dive much deeper in to Rios’ time at Starfleet, long before La Sirena and his time working with Admiral Picard to search for the missing Bruce Maddox.

As well as the book cover art (left) we’ve also got a full synopsis for Miller’s story:

Starfleet was everything for Cristóbal Rios—until one horrible, inexplicable day when it all went wrong. Aimless and adrift, he grasps at a chance for a future as an independent freighter captain in an area betrayed by the Federation, the border region with the former Romulan Empire. His greatest desire: to be left alone.

But solitude isn’t in the cards for the captain of La Sirena, who falls into debt to a roving gang of hoodlums from a planet whose society is based on Prohibition-era Earth. Teamed against his will with Ledger, his conniving overseer, Rios begins an odyssey that brings him into conflict with outlaws and fortune seekers, with power brokers and relic hunters across the stars.

Exotic loves and locales await—as well as dangers galore—and Rios learns the hard way that good crewmembers are hard to find, even when you can create your own. And while his meeting with Jean-Luc Picard is years away, Rios finds himself drawing on the Starfleet legend’s experiences when he discovers a mystery that began on one of the galaxy’s most important days…

Star Trek: Picard – Rogue Elements hits books stores on August 17, 2021.
