Re: Trek Lit - Ebook Only - Anyone have a list of these?

The first ebook only releases were the Corps of Engineers/SCE books. There were 74 in the series, running from 2000 to 2007. All except the last eight have now be collected in paperback omnibuses.

Towards the end of the SCE run there were also two miniseries, which took six month chunks out of the usual SCE monthly release schedule. TOS's Mere Anarchy spans the entire TOS timeline from TV to movie eras, and is also available in a paperback omnibus. TNG's Slings and Arrows takes place in the year before First Contact, the six novellas in this series have not yet been omnibus...ified...

Then with the end of Slings and Arrows there were no more ebooks. I think Trek was a bit ahead of its time. Although the decision to stop came oddly as the new wave of ebook readers were really starting to get popular.

After a few years ebook only stories returned! One a year so far since 2011, each tied to different series:

Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within
, was an extra story released shortly after the initial Typhon Pact miniseries.

Vanguard: In Tempest's Wake
, a "coda" to the Vanguard series.

And coming this year, TNG: The Stuff of Dreams, set after the Cold Equations trilogy.

Also out this month, are three new ebook omnibuses with no paperback equivalent (well, two of them don't at least), which collect together several recently released novels.
Numerically Challenged Drone: Star Trek blog, 2013 books schedule, 2014 books schedule.
