Star Trek Into Darkness saw its official release in the United States this week, and we’ve got some news of some special tie-in releases from publishers Simon and Schuster to compliment the movie.

The Novelization

Alan Dean Foster‘s official novelization of Into Darkness is already available in the UK, Germany and other European markets and will be released on May 21 in the United States. Here’s the official synopsis from Simon and Schuster and the final cover art:

Minline_intodarknessbookonths after the dramatic events seen in the 2009 blockbuster film Star Trek, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise—including Captain James T. Kirk, First Officer Spock, Doctor Leonard McCoy, Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, and Ensign Pavel Chekov—is called back home.

But an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has declared all-out war on Starfleet and everything it stands for, leaving Earth in a state of crisis. Now with a personal score to settle as a result, Kirk must lead a covert manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.

As these valiant heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Captain Kirk has left: his crew.

    The soundtrack is -among- the best of the 12 movies! It’s got some really good points and sounds incredible!

    • Charlie

      I’ve got to agree. I wasn’t impressed with the score to Star Trek (2009) but Michael Giacchino has created some beautiful music this time round.

  • Lords of Kobol Book

    What about an “Art of” book? I love those.
