I have a new book coming out this Sept 5th. It's available for pre-order now:

One hundred years ago they came. We reached out to them with a hand of friendship and they returned the gesture by nearly destroying us all. 

After a single encounter with the mysterious alien race identified only as Species 4876, the United Planetary Alliance was nearly decimated. Stopping their lone vessel was almost a hollow victory in the aftermath of the haunting mystery that Species 4876 presented: Where had they come from? Why did they attack us? And most of all, what if they came back?

But they never did.

Today, the threat of Species 4876 is a distant memory, a nearly forgotten footnote in the history books.

Or is it?

On the outer rim, cut off from any backup, ignored by Fleet Admiralty and surrounded by a hostile empire and an interstellar crime syndicate, Captain Mitchell and his crew of the USS Defiance find themselves as the first, and possibly only, defense against an alien menace that the rest of the galaxy has all but forgotten about.

I'll probably do a longer essay about this, but in short, thanks to my dad, I grew up on a steady diet of Star Trek. It was a constant in our house. Family outings were coordinated around when a new episode of Next Gen would be airing and when the rerun would air. To this day I continue to love Star Trek. Anytime there's a new Star Trek movie or show it gets bumped to the top of the list for me.

This book, Defiance, is the sum of everything I love about Star Trek. If you love Star Trek, I have a feeling you're going to like this book. Below I have a sample chapter. And remember, you can read the whole thing Sept 5th!
