Re: Help with ideas?

First, I commend your desire to write a full-length novel. That will require a great deal of discipline and time.

As to suggestions, I would simply suggest that you write what interests YOU. If you are not passionate about the characters, plot, setting, etc., you will find it difficult to write a long story, much less a novel.

Personally, I like any era of Star Trek, whether using canon characters or not. When I'm reading, I'm looking for stories with:
  • Interesting characters / well-written dialogue
  • A story-line that flows without being predictable
  • Good imagery but with limited techno-babble
  • Proper grammar / spelling / etc.
As an observation there have not been too many stories written from the TOS era, so you might consider that when planning. Good luck!
