Star Trek: DTI: Forgotten History Cover + Synopsis!

Star Trek Forgotten HistoryWell, they are back. Our two famous Star Trek time travel investigator Lucsly and Dulmur (DS9 Trials and Tribble-ations) are again the leads in a new novel in the Department of Temporal Investigations series.

Simon and Schuster have in another round of updates given this book a tentative release date for the 24th of April along with its official synopsis.


The agents of the Department of Temporal Investigations are assigned to look into an anomaly that has appeared deep in Federation territory. It’s difficult to get clear readings, but a mysterious inactive vessel lies at the heart of the anomaly, one outfitted with some sort of temporal drive disrupting space-time and subspace. To the agents’ shock, the ship bears a striking resemblance to a Constitution-class starship, and its warp signature matches that of the original Federation starship Enterprise NCC-1701—the ship of James T. Kirk, that infamous bogeyman of temporal investigators, whose record of violations is held up by DTI agents as a cautionary tale for Starfleet recklessness toward history. But the vessel’s hull markings identify it as Timeship Two, belonging to none other than the DTI itself. At first, Agents Lucsly and Dulmur assume the ship is from some other timeline . . . but its quantum signature confirms that it came from their own past, despite the fact that the DTI never possessed such a timeship. While the anomaly is closely monitored, Lucsly and Dulmur must search for answers in the history of Kirk’s Enterprise and its many encounters with time travel—a series of events with direct ties to the origins of the DTI itself. . . .

The novel is being written by Christopher L. Bennett who also wrote the previous DTI book ‘Watching the Clock’. A short novella entitled ‘The Struggle Within’ was not reviewed favorable just a few months ago on this website.
