Yep. Lots. But to give advice I'd need to know if you want a recent publishing or older book and if you want television years or post movie years.

  Well, I don´t care if it is old or new, tv or post movie years. My preferences are for histories where Data or Picard or Riker are the main focus. And it wouldn´t hurt if The Borg (colective, not individuals) are present.

Yes, Destiny is hard to beat based on what you described.  It is a 3 parter involving Picard, Riker, and the Borg (of course Data is still dead).  There is also an entire series based upon Riker, Troi, and Tuvok on the Titan (names ST: Titan).  Destiny will also be rereleased soon in one binding.  I can't recommend it enough, it is the book that got me back into reading trek books.


I would also recommend Imzadi and Imzadi II which chronicle the love story between Riker and Troi with II involving captain Data of the 1701-F.

I do what JimKirk does, go to amazon and read the back cover or I go to google and type in whatever series I want to read and type in books and usually there is a link to the book. It's so hard to get them in a regular book store now. They usually have the same few. I have read TNG, Voyager and Enterprise and have not been disappointed with any that I have read.

For good Data focused stories I'd definitely recommend Spartacus and Metamorphosis. Both are set during the years of the TV series.


One of my favourites involving a lot of Picard and Riker is Dragon's Honour. It's quite humorous - if that's what you like.


And unless you're one of those Wesley haters, you might want to try Boogeymen as well - apart from Wesley, it focuses on Picard and Data.


I remember Grounded was very good as well - just a bit too creepy for my taste, but the story per se was awesome!


And of course I'll second the votes for Imzadi!

No prob. Interestingly, though fans love Imzadi 2, Peter David himself does not. He wanted it to be named Triangle, not Imzadi 2 and was annoyed when that title was emblazoned on the cover. His editor also changed the ending.

Yes. Peter David "Q" books are always good. My favorite TNG books are Crossover and Ship of the Line but they aren't the type of story he's looking for.

I've yet to read a bad one. I think I read them all. Q squared was particularly good.
