My post-TNG chronological reading list

First off I want to say hello to all my fellow treksters out there. This is my first post here so I figured I should say hi before getting to the point. My interest in trek has recently resurfaced. I randomly decided a week ago to download all seasons of Voyager. I've seen a majority of the TNG episodes and every DS9 episode. I've also seen all of the movies including the TOS ones. I watched a lot of VOY when it was on the air but I knew I missed a lot and wanting to experience the whole storyline I decided to watch the series straight through. Doing this has really gotten me pumped about Star Trek again. It also gave me the desire to transition from the series/movies to the books. I knew that by doing so it would take me places I'd never experienced before and I am really excited to begin this new journy. When I asked myself how I wanted to approach this massive endevour I decided that I wanted to start post-TNG series because I wanted to continue the story rather than retracing my steps. I searched the internet tirelessly for a list of books in chronological order but the most I ever got were "places to start" or a link to the wiki page listing all the books. So, I took it upon myself to create a list of trek books in chronological order beginning just after the movie "Star Trek Generation." I used the wiki list of books as well as the wiki trek timeline to help me do this. A few parameters I made when creating this list was to NOT include any books of a particular series that insersected the timeline of it's tv series. There are however books included in particular series that intersect other TV series but not their own. Hopefully, that make sense. The few exceptions that were made to this was when I encountered certain relaunch series. I did include these books in my reading timeline even if the events in the books took place within the timeframe of it's corresponding TV series. I know that a lot of people are like me hoping to find a clear chronological order of the books because I've discovered many of them in my own search. So, I've compiled my list which displays the series of the book, example "TNG, VOY, DS9", title of the book, followed by the earth date. I'm hoping that I can get the contribution of this community to expand upon it. So, I'm asking please submit book titles along w/ earth year it takes place and some sort of information to validate what you're saying (I want the list to be accurate). If you want to list books that occur before my timeline that's fine. I personally just didn't want to start before then but there's no reason this couldn't turn into a comprehensive list. Anyways if you have any info please post it. I know this was long post so thx for your patience. OH and ONE MORE THING. In my timeline I also listed some *movies* and *series start/finish* connotated by * just for the sake of reference points. Looking forward to your replies. NEXT POST INCLUDES MY LIST THUS FAR.

Just to help out, I have this quote saved from Trek BBS site from one of the author's on DTI: Watching the Clock's placement:

And chronologically speaking, DTI:WTC takes place well before IFM. WTC covers March 2381 through February 2382 (approximately the same span as Rough Beasts of Empire), while IFM is January to March '83.

Well done. Memory Beta is the best source for the "chronology" the non - canon materials. Just remember that most of the novels did not have editorial time control until the official post Nemesis "Relaunch".

I also expect that at some point in the future TPTB might jack up the timeline again.
