In the novel Crossover, set between TNG S7 and Generations, there was a Galaxy class Intrepid that was commanded by the son/grandson of Riley from TOS.
You know, I have never read any of the Trek novels. But I always see comments like this on the board here. Tell me, does every single Trek novel out there insist on connecting everything together?
Sometimes it's an in-joke thing, other times it's a "because it's cool" thing, sometimes it's a plot thing, and there are probably a few other circumstances where it happens. In this case, it's a plot thing, because the connection between Riley and another TOS character (who the captain interacts with) is needed to keep the plot moving.
