RIDGEWOOD, New Jersey - October 30, 2000 --  AIL NewMedia Publishing today announced that its web site, is now distributing The Star Trek  S.E.C. - Starship Corps of Engineers series, published exclusively as eBooks, through its affiliation with, the premier secure digital content e-merchandising company.

The three titles constituting the series take full advantage of  the favorable reception and economics of this medium. They are also a perfect fit for it - eBooks are science fiction come true; Star Trek is science fiction which may come true, as visualized through these stories:

At the start of "The Belly of the Beast" the U.S.S. Enterprise defeats a gigantic marauding starship from parts unknown.  With the immediate threat removed, the S.C.E. is called in to probe it, in search of both new technology and the secret of its origin.  Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge joins Captain Gold and the crew of the S.C.E. ship U.S.S. da Vinci on this fascinating mission. La Forge works with Gold and his top-of-the-line group of technical specialists to unravel the high-tech mysteries of the seemingly dead alien vessel, only to discover that the real danger has just begun...

"Fatal Error" tells the story of a thriving civilization, completely run, maintained, and administered by a giant sentient computer on the planet Eerlik. Alas the computer is now breaking down and the desperate inhabitants can not repair the damage. Only the crew of the U.S.S. da Vinci, accompanied by Geordi La Forge, has a chance to fix the massive computer before the Eerlikkan society collapses entirely. Their mission grows more dangerous, however, when they discover evidence of sabotage-and learn firsthand that hostile forces will do whatever it takes to stop Gold and his crew from saving the imperiled planet.

In "Hard Crash" an alien starship of unknown origin crashes into a planet inhabited by a large and populous civilization. Together with Geordi La Forge, temporarily on loan from the Starship Enterprise, the S.C.E. investigates the mysterious vessel, only to discover that the ship was not nearly as damaged as it first seemed. Seemingly  possessing a life of its own and intelligence, is on a rampage across the surface of the planet. Captain Gold and his crew face the awesome challenge of stopping a starship gone insane...
