My husband and I have been watching a lot of movies lately. Rewatching some old favorites, actually.

We both love Star Trek, so we decided to rewatch the alternate reality movies. But once we got through the second movie, Star Trek Into Darkness, we decided to go down a Khan rabbit hole. We watched The Original Series episode “Space Seed” and then Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn. (Khan as a child in an alternate timeline also appeared in Strange New Worlds Season 2’s episode “Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow,” but that’s further down the rabbit hole than we were willing to go at present.) 

I love it when you have storylines within series. It makes the universe richer.

Kristine Kathryn Rusch—a huge Star Trek fan herself and an author of Star Trek novels—is a master of the storyline within a series, as evidence by her massively expansive Diving Universe.

And if you haven’t yet ventured into this universe, her newest novel, Ivory Trees, is a great place to start. And our latest Kickstarter is a great way to get that new novel.

We’ve entered the last week of Ivory Trees: A Diving Universe Kickstarter, and we’ve hit 3 stretch goals so far, so let’s take a look at what you’ll get if you back this Kickstarter at the $5 level or above:

Bonus books:

“Rocket Girls”

“Once on the Blue Moon”

“Rick the Robber Baron”

Bonus workshops:

Writing About Building Cultures in Science Fiction ($150 value)

Writing About Relativity in Science Fiction ($150 value)

We’ve got more stretch goals to hit, too, so the value just keeps rising.

It’s an adventure you won’t want to miss!
