I, however, argue with this. Since TNG is absolutely finished (there won't even be anymore books, I'm told),
You were lied to.

Yeah... as long as something makes money, there will be more of it. There will be more TNG books.

It was a joke. There are several more TNG books planned.

Re: Is FanFiction Illegal?

I feel that the future of the Trek we knew is through written literature/ fan films. Some of the best ideas come from those who truly understand Star Trek. The only drawback I can see is mass overlapping of timelines and the need to sift for a more acceptable general canon. I wouldn't hold out much hope for Paramount to make canon anymore (no profit). We're on our own. Cobra

Yes a lot of fan-fiction is downright criminal.

The book 'Path of Disharmony' (TNG) by Dayton Ward is set to be released later this year under Star Trek: Typhon Pact banner. Also, 'Seize the Fire' (Star Trek: Titan) by Michael A. Martin is set to be released as well featuring Riker, Troi and several minor TNG characters under the same banner.

The TNG characters are alive, well and still being published by Pocket Books for the forseeable future.

And a massive amount of 'fanwank'.
