SIDELIGHTS: Kevin Dilmore is a former award-winning Kansas journalist who, in 2003, gave up his newspaper work to write full time on various aspects of Star Trek. An avid fan of the television show since childhood, Dilmore turned this avocation into a vocation, writing articles for the Star Trek Communicator magazine, the official fanzine. Also, with writer Dayton Ward, he has teamed up on numerous e-books for the series "Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers," as well as for the book series, "Star Trek: The Next Generation." Among titles for the former series, the three-part Foundations and two-part Interphase have also been published in book format. Reviewing the book Have Tech, Will Travel, in which the first part of Interphase appeared, Kliatt reviewer Hugh M. Flick, Jr., noted that "Starfleet Corps of Engineers" is a "fine addition to the Star Trek printed series."

Dilmore's two contributions to the "Next Generation" series, A Time to Sow and A Time to Harvest, finds the Starship Enterprise exploring the distant reaches of the galaxy where the crew discovers the remnants of a civilization that has been ravaged by a global disaster. Captain Picard and his team initially come to help, but soon find that not everything is as it appears; they must defeat a hidden enemy and avoid being hijacked themselves.
