Pocket Books just might have to share its “Star Trek: Voyager” writer. At least for now.
Kirsten Beyer, who has authored 10 “Voyager” books (with two more on the way) over the past decade or so, is heading for a new gig: The writing team of the upcoming Star Trek series for CBS All Access.
Although CBS has not confirmed the hire, a Maryland convention called Shore Leave announced Beyer had to pull out as a guest specifically because she was joining the new series.
“One of our author guests, Kirsten Beyer, has to cancel her attendance at Shore Leave 38 for an admittedly very cool reason,” the convention’s website said. “Kirsten is one of the writers for the new Star Trek series. Her workload and commitment to the new series make it impossible to attend Shore Leave this year. She is looking forward to coming back to Shore Leave next year to share the excitement of her new job.”
