I don't mind change, but I also miss "in-series" books and don't understand why we can't get a mix of the two instead of only relaunch books.
I love change as long as it's done well, but I find it hard to disagree with this. I'd love some novels set during unique periods in the shows' histories, like early season 1 TNG or another Pulaski novel, etc.
Yes, I agree. The Star Trek novel line is broad enough that it can encompass ongoing stories as well as those set during series runs, IMO. Maybe a decision would be taken someday to have such stories for TNG, Voyager, and DS9, if only to test the market.
I keep hoping maybe they'll start doing e-book novellas set during the series runs. It would be a the perfect way to give us episodic stories set during the series, and it would keep the people who don't read e-books from worrying about missing parts of the ongoing stories.
