Re: What is the biggest reason that you read Trek novels/stories?
I ticked the first three options.
For me its now about continuing where the shows left off. I like it all but my preference is filling in the gaps and taking things forward. I read TOS Treklit before Next Gen started for the same reason. I like the continuity and it fills a gap left by the shows. Some of it is a lot better than the TV versions !
Stuff set during the shows doesn't have the same appeal, but that's not to say there aren't great stories to be told...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
