Re: What is the biggest reason that you read Trek novels/stories?

I actually tend to prefer Treklit that focuses on original characters instead of on characters from one of the TV shows. Part of the reason is that I find it more relaxing not to find myself comparing an author's voice to my pre-established impression of a character by way of their screen presence; when a character was created or at least primarily fleshed out by the books, they own that character and the word is law. The familiarity I speak of in the earlier post is familiarity with the format, not so much the characters.

Here's an old poll and discussion on original vs. series characters: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=184529
