Wow, you all read WAY faster than me!
'm following the publication order. I would have liked to do a chronological order but difficult to work out exactly where everything fits... I'll post tomorrow the first ten or twenty books and hopefully my first review of The Motion Picture.
There was a blog I came across once, someone who did attempt chronological order. I think he reached Captain Pike's era before quitting.
And with the constant squishing of new stories into the timeline, trying it that way is a flawed plan from the get-go.
