STLV17: Covers and Details Unveiled For First ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Comic and Novel:

The book is a prequel set a year before Discovery, and one year after the Enterprise visits Talos IV in “The Cage.” Here is the official synopsis:

Desperate Hours releases September 26, but you can already preorder it on Amazon.

Aboard the Starship Shenzhou, Lieutenant Michael Burnham,
a human woman raised and educated among Vulcans, is promoted to acting
first officer. But if she wants to keep the job, she must prove to
Captain Philippa Georgiou that she deserves to have it.

She gets her chance when the Shenzhou must protect a Federation
colony that is under attack by an ancient alien vessel that has surfaced
from the deepest fathoms of the planet’s dark, uncharted sea. As the
menace from this mysterious vessel grows stronger, Starfleet declares
the colony expendable in the name of halting the threat. To save
thousands of innocent lives, Burnham must infiltrate the alien ship. But
to do so she needs to face the truth of her troubled past, and seek the
aid of a man she has tried to avoid her entire life — until now.

Discovery will make its four-color debut in early October, when
IDW publishes the first part of a 4-issue mini-series about T’Kuvma,
written by Kirsten Beyer along with Mike Johnson, with art by Tony
Shasheen.
