Star Trek: Prometheus is a novel miniseries, a trilogy created by Christian Humberg and Bernd Perplies. It is a sequel to the events of Star Trek: The Fall. Prometheus will feature tensions on the frontier between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, and will center on the USS Prometheus (NX-74913) and the IKS Bortas as they investigate the threat of terrorism in the Lembatta Cluster.


Cross Cult negotiated for two years with CBS and received the rights to participate in the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise by writing and publishing a trilogy of novels set in the year 2385 of the ongoing novel continuity. The series will be published from July to September 2016 in the German language. For CBS to approve, translations of the three novels exist and will be published as eBooks on a later date.


The novels were debuted by Cross Cult's "Star Trek Romane" account on the social media platform Facebook on 23 November 2015. Bernd Perplies, one of the authors, elaborated on the series in posts on the TrekBBS literature forum. The three novels will feature Captain Richard Adams of the USS Prometheus facing of against Klingons, aliens and terrorists in the Lembatta Cluster, shortly after the assassination of President Nanietta Bacco and the election of President Kellessar zh'Tarash.
