I've been a Trekkie fan for a long time, but have just started recently to read some of the books as well.  So far two of my favourite books are DS9: A stitch in time with my favourite DS9 character Garak, and STNG: Q Squared.  What are your favourites?  Any books you wouldn't recommend?

What I always suggest is start with your favorite series and find books written by your favorite authors.  I've found that with well over 500 Star Trek books in my library and the various discussions, books one person hates, another person loves.


I would also suggest perusing through the books forum and look at the discussions on different books.

I would reccomend most Peter David novels 


Star Trek errand of Vengenace Trilogy and the follow on trilogy Errand of Fury Also the Crucible Trilogy are by far the best TOS novels I have read


It depends on what genre you like as there is some novels that are poor and some hidden gams may be out there this happened to me when I read the errand off series

STAR TREK: The Next Generation
"Foriegn Foes" by Dave Galanter
and Greg Brodeur


It is an older book. The writing
is not exceptional. However, to
my surprise, I cannot stop picking
this book up. It is so bad it's good!
Which is definitely its sole charm.
And I do recommend it, on that level.

There are a lot of good ones to choose from! The Vanguard series is very, very good.


 


I also enjoy going back and reading some of the books from the 80's, before the mythos was so well defined. Interesting the take and direction some of the authors give.

There is an interesting new series they've started called Star Trek:  The Fall.  So far, I've read the first book and have gotten about halfway through the second book.


I think they are fantastic, but they introduce a number of changes.  So, the quadrant might be a bit different.

David Mack is my favorite Star Trek author, so his Destiny and Cold Fusion series books are my favorite Star Trek books.

Does anyone know the book where they had to live in bubbles? I read it 20 or so years ago.

In The Abyss, the diver had to put on a helmet filled with some kind of liquid, so he could withstand the tremendous depths there.  I thought he would drown, but he settled down and was able to breathe!  I wouldn't have believed it, if I hadn't seen him do it on camera!
