The first two novels in the Star Trek: New Earth series are selling exceptionally well, according to John Ordover, executive editor for Trek fiction at Pocket Books. The first volume, Wagon Train to the Stars is seventh on the Waldenbooks paperback bestseller list and book two, Belle Terre, is number 15. Based on the original crew's adventures, the six-book New Earth series is set between the first and second feature films after the Enterprise's encounter with V'Ger. Kirk and company travel nine months away from Federation space to help a colony settle on a distant world.
