Just curious - what was the very first Star Trek book you ever read?

Mine was "Strangers From the Sky"

The Klingon Gambit. Hey, the D-7 caught my eye.

Unfortunately, the only event I remember from that book was when Kirk set his phaser to overload and threw it like a grenade. Ha.

This from a 13 year-old (at the time) with a TON of G.I.Joes... :cool:

"Vulcan Academy Murders"

As a kid, I was a big Star Wars fan.  (I often joke with my friends who are Star Wars fans that I was a fan until I grew up.)    After reading through all three novelizations of the movies they had at my local library, I was out of Star Wars books to read.    I decided to read this book, only really knowing Star Trek from seeing a couple of the movies.   It hooked me on Star Trek and then I went and started watching the shows on TV and reading all the Trek books I can.   Since I read a bunch of Trek books before I had seen much of the show, I often say that my version of the characters in my head never quite matched up to the show.   (Though, I did up loving the show as well.)

I recently re-read this book for the first time since that original read.    It was amazing how much I caught that I did not the first time (not having seen much of the show, I did not catch a lot of references).    The book was an even better read the second time through.

Aren't they relaunching the Young Adult range sometime this year, but with the ST XI crew?

Dreadnaught and then the sequel Battlestations.  I actually read them again a few months back (still a good read).  I recommend them both.

It was either the last of the Shatnerverse books or one of the captains table books.

Those two were my 2nd & 3rd reads.  Still two of my favorite.
