Exploring the final frontier is one thing. Making a home there is another…

Star Trek: New Earth (continued as Star Trek: Challenger) is a series of novels published by Pocket Books, which ran for six books as part of a subseries (#89-94) in the Pocket TOS line.

The series depicted the events of a second five-year mission taking place between the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Some major events shown are the switch to the newer Starfleet uniform design of the later movie, and James T. Kirk's reluctance to accept a position at the admiralty rather than as a starship captain.

The intention was for the Challenger series to become another ongoing original fiction series – however, its involvement in the Star Trek: Gateways crossover remains the only entry in the series to date.
