Anyone know what Star Trek novels are good to read?


The only ones I can think of are Q Squared, Ship of the Line, and The Return.


Any good Deep Space Nine novels to get into?

My personal favorite is Uhura's Song, but I haven't read a Star Trek novel in over ten years, so I probably missed some good ones.

Do you have a favorite author or two? If so, did they write any Star Trek books?

Personally, I really like Peter David, Diane Duane, Diane Carey, Michael Jan Friedman and a few others.  But.... since there are hundreds of books, there will be many you hate or love, depending on your views.


If you're looking for a specific DS9 novel, one of my favorites is Hollow Men.  It has to do with events around the In the Pale Moonlight episode.

For Deep Space Nine. I would definitely check out, A Stitch in Time, written by Andrew J. Robinson

As for other good Star Trek books, I would also recommend:

Imzadi by Peter David

The Eugenics Wars(2 books) by Greg Cox

Best Destiny by Diane Carey

I,Q by Peter David

The «Cold Equations» trilogy by David Mack is excellent.  If you have been missing someone since Nemesis, it offers an interesting possibility.  The one thing I did not like in the books is :  Beverly Crusher is not going to have a baby at age 60 (the action takes place about 20 years after the beginning of TNG).  I do not care if the technology exists, women, as a general rule, do not want to have chidren past age 45.
