Your 5 Favorite Star Trek Books

We write a lot on these boards about what's good, what's bad, what authors we like, and where to start if someone is looking for Trek books, but what five are your favorites? Please limit yourself to five single books, not five series, or ten books because five isn't enough, or some other deviation. Thanks.

Here's mine:

1. How Much for Just the Planet? - John M. Ford (TOS)

2. The Great Starship Race - Diane Carey (TOS)

3. A Stitch in Time - Andrew J. Robinson (DS9)

4. Unity - S.D. Perry (DS9)

5. Doctor's Orders - Diane Duane (TOS)

I am having a lot of trouble narrowing down to a few favorites, but:


Destiny (series)

New Frontier (series)


Dreadnought & Battlestations

The Good That Men Do through the romulan war series

Not in any particular order.



Kang - "Only a fool fights in a burning house"

I've only been into Trek novels for about 3 years years. While I own about 20 (I got excited), I've only read 7, so far. All TOS and ENT. So take my top 5 with that grain of salt.

1. Prime Directive

2. Crucible: McCoy: Provenance of Shadows

3. Academy: Collision Course

4. The Good That Men Do

5. A Choice of Catastrophes
