Federation by Reeves-Stephens

I'll second that. Great book. Would've made a great film.

Spock's World & Dark Mirror - both by Diane Duane

The Return & Spectre - both by Captain Kirk & the Reeves-Stephens.

I have 2 others that are good but their authors escape me right now.

To be honest, a Trek book has to be pretty bad before I really... (I'm trying to be nice, an author might read this!:laugh: ) dislike it. That'll do.

My favorites are all Voyager books

The String Theory Books...the whole trilogy

The Nanotech War

Echoes

The Dark Matter Trilogy, all three are great

No Man's Land

Her Klingon Soul

Shadow

I really liked the String Theory trilogy and I thought Nanotech war was excellent.

I also like the new Voyager novel Full Circle by Kristen Beyer, it is a bit darker than most of the series, but a very good read in my opinion.

Another good one is Marooned, by Christie Golden, while I am not a huge Kes fan  I actually found I liked this book a lot.

I didn't put down Full Circle because I haven't finished it yet  :laugh:

Of course a few others would make a top five list. However...

Section 31: Abyss
by David Weddle and Jeffrey Lang


Because the first time I read this I was instantly hooked. I was going to Southland with my parents at the time (doing the tourist thing) but every spare moment I had I opened up that book and it was brilliant.

And yep I've probably said this once or twice but I luv Section 31 stories and also DS9 relaunch, and all the story threads that they dreamed up for this one were so interesting.

I was thinking of getting others of the series but having Section 31 and no Julian Bashir still seems a little weird. Maybe I'll check out the voyager one someday.

The fuzzy green "Ewoks" ruined it for me.

And after ALL that buildup? The climax felt really rushed.

Anyway, my two cents.

In my opinion, the DS9 relaunch has been pretty ... mediocre. (And I realize just how much I miss Sisko, O'Brien, Odo, and Worf.)

Reunion is wonderful insight into the Stargazer crew. And Valiant.

Actually, I quite liked Reunion.

I remember an extended weekend during my senior year of college when all of my stoner-buddies were heading home (it might have been a holiday) while I was sticking around campus to finish up a film project. And in my "off-time?" I could see potential boredom in my future.

So I headed to my local Waldenbooks and picked up Requiem by Kevin Ryan and Michael Jan Friedman, Reunion also by Michael Jan Friedman, and Best Destiny by Diane Carey.

And all three of these were really quite good.

I picked up Requiem because the cover displayed A) Picard in an "old-school" scarlet uniform and B) a Gorn. (I might have mentioned this in another thread somewhere, but "Arena" is what turned me into a Trek fan back in the day.)

I picked up Reunion because it centered around Picard's Stargazer crew, several of them wearing "old-school" scarlet uniforms on the cover. And as we all know and understand, TOS movie-era exploits (should always) equal total badassitocity.

Finally, I picked up Best Destiny because it was written by Diane Carey and dealt with the origin of Captain Kirk.

I think I read Requiem the first day, Reunion the second day, and spent a little more than a week on Best Destiny. Boredom averted.

Anyway, taking this stroll down Memory Lane has reminded me I probably need to track down those other MJF Stargazer books. They might just be the Trek fix I'm looking for...

Possible spoilers...

If it makes you feel better, though: O'Brien reappears during the Mission Gamma books, and Sisko and Odo in "Unity" -- and Worf in "Left Hand of Destiny" (which admittedly I haven't read anyways.)

I don't suppose it would have been at all realistic to have had them come back all at once. Relaunch has certainly had its ups and downs for me but overall has been quite good. My two cents worth as well. ^_^
