Star Trek: Myriad Universes is an anthology series, published by Pocket Books between 2008 and 2010, focusing on alternate realities and the analogues of familiar characters within them. Similar to the early Star Trek: Mirror Universe collections, the anthologies collect three short novels per book.

A personal project of Pocket editor Marco Palmieri, the concept had been in the works since the early 2000s under the title Split Infinities. [1] The first two books in the series were announced at the Shore Leave convention in July 2007. The third was announced at the same event in 2008.

The 2009 IDW Publishing comic mini-series Star Trek: The Last Generation was also published under the Myriad Universes banner.


Common cover copy
It's been said that for any event, there is an infinite number of possible outcomes. Our choices determine which outcome will follow, and therefore all possibilities that could happen do happen across countless alternate realities. In these divergent realms, known history is bent, like white light through a prism – broken into a boundless spectrum of what-might-have-beens. But in those myriad universes, what might have been… is what actually happened.
