(written from a Production point of view)
Cast No Shadow is a Pocket TOS novel by James Swallow. Released in July 2011, it features the characters of Valeris and Elias Vaughn (Elias Vaughn at Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek works). The novel was announced in Star Trek Magazine issue 154.
The novel was originally scheduled for release in October 2011, but was moved up the schedule as a result of delays to the Star Trek: New Frontier novel Blind Man's Bluff, and then swapped places with A Choice of Catastrophes.
The solicitation cover erroneously gave the novel's title as "Cast No Shadows".
