  • The so-called "Shatner-verse" series of novels by William Shatner and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens has utilized certain elements of the novel-verse (such as certain crew members on Enterprise and Titan), but is largely incompatible with novel-continuity as presented.
  • Although the Crucible trilogy exists in it's own time line, separate from the general novel-verse, there are several events that can be integrated into the novelverse without difficulty, including the story of President Ra-ghoratreii trying to recruit Spock as an ambassador and speaking at Kirk's funeral.
  • Steve Mollmann and Michael Schuster included elements from the "Shatner-verse" book Spectre and elements from the Gold Key comics series in their SCE book The Future Begins.
  • Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many by Michael A. Martin includes elements of the novelverse, but the STO universe has too many contradictions to be a part of the main novel-verse.
I hate having thoughts on the top of my head. They usually jump off and commit suicide.
