I like the documentary books about Star Trek. There're also those 12 of TOS by James Blish. Also the 10 ones of the animated series by Alan Dean Foster. I met him once.


Another two I liked was 'The Galactic Whirlpool' and 'The Abode of Life'. I also thought those 2 had similar stories.


There're those by William Shatner, of Kirk, like 'Spectre'.

Documentary books about Star Trek, that I mentioned, are mainly books like: The ethics of Star Trek, Living with Star Trek, Star Trek the human frontier, Boldly live as you've never lived before, Star Trek in myth and legend, Star Trek lives!, I am not Spock, and I am Spock. Those sort of books.

All the original books are Great but my favourite is , " Uhura's Song" by Janet Kagan. If anyone has read it, they'd know why its such a good novel

Read the entire Vanguard series in order starting with Harbinger and ending in Storming Heaven.  It reads like a DS9 story arc set in during the years of TOS.  it provides a lot of TOS back story but develops completely original characters in an original and interesting plot.


Vanguard is probably the best work of Trek literature ever.
