Re: Favorite Time Period

While I voted for the TOS time, I do enjoy the 22nd Century where they still have football and wear baseball style caps.

Re: Favorite Time Period

Sulu on Excelsior

are the favorite times I like to think about. Some of the books covering those eras have been good, some, not so much.

And I'm starting to spend some time on the 22nd cent, pre ENT

Re: Favorite Time Period

22nd and 23rd Centuries. I like Titan in the 24th, but thats about it for that era.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.

Hey, you didn't offer what would have been my choice! That would have been the time period of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
Ditto. My first ST comics were the post-TMP Marvel issues and I loved the Thomas Warkentin art of those early LA Times Syndicate post-TMP strips.

"Ex Machina" was the novel I wanted to read in the weeks/months following TMP's premiere, but I made do with TMP's novelizations, off-the-shelf Bantams and early Pocket novels, and writing post-TMP fanfic instead. Some of Pocket's early titles were post-TMP, pre-ST II. The "Lost Years" saga (eventually four books) were also great, and lead into TMP.

I love the Dominion war era, but I enjoy all of them.
But... we're Star Trek fans. As logic is to Vulcans, as honour to Klingons, so is griping on the Internet to us.....Trent Roman

Re: Favorite Time Period

I'll squeeze one more era in there, the early 23rd century (pre-Constitution-class).

The only books I can think of in that era are The Final Reflection and parts of Burning Dreams.
