Re: New to trek literature please help - where to begin

Besides the Pocket books, there are also the Bantam and Ballantine books that were written in the 70's and early 80's. While the Bantam books tend to be in their own loose continuity (and don't refer to he Animated Trek due to, from what I understand were licensing restriction), just beware that these books were written prior to the release of Star Trek The Motion Picture. I might even call these the "Advanced" Trek novels (kind of like In a video game where you have Easy, Medium, Advance) at this point because their continuity with the canon material was based on the original 79 episodes. And I'd probably extend that "Advanced" rating to all the books published upto 1989.
