I haven't read Cruicible yet, so I don't know how they compare, but DRGIII has written quite a few other Trek books. Do you want to get into the current interseries continuity, or stick to standalones?

I'm currently reading the Crucible series by David R. George III; I've never read a Star Trek book in my life up until now- it happened to be in our hotel room and thought I'd give it a shot.

I'm wondering if there are any other book series or authors that follow David's style of writing and fairly good respect to the ST canon?

Please forgive my questions, but this is my first time reading a Star Trek book. Thanks,
Serpents Among the Ruins is an excellent standalone, also by David, with some small links to Crucible. It's probably my favorite DRG3 book after Provenance of Shadows.
I've been reading excerpts from various Trek books and found that a lot of them have their own "canon" if you will that un-officially explains certain origins of various species, etc. For example the Borg.

What I'm looking to read are books based on canon; which I think is the reason why I like the Crucible series. I'm trying to keep all of the prime universe cannon in order and not get confused with the soft-canon stuff, if you can call it that. Are there other books out there similar to this? Perhaps ones that follow Star Trek series or episodes in this manor? I am going to look into David's other work as well.

Also, if I shouldn't be posting questions in this thread, please merge it off into a new thread.

Thanks again,
