There's way more than that...
  • Marvel published a Romulan/ Borg comic entitled 'Operation: Assimilation.'
  • Wildstorm published a comic anthology 'Star Trek Special' which contained a few stories not based on the main characters.
  • IDW has 6 or 7 issues which star TOS Romulans.
  • They also published several Alien Spotlight, Crew, and Captain's Log comics which either star all new characters or at least secondary characters.
  • There's also IDWs Assignment: Earth miniseries starring Gary Seven.
  • There are several issues of Malibu and DC comics which I think are basically spin offs which don't star the main characters much if at all, but I couldn't tell you offhand which ones.




I was wondering if they will release any more IDW STAR TREK comics on the nook?

Thrawn - thanks, I have been reading Trek Lit for a long time, and there is so much in my brain that this list really helped!

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Hey, long time lurker, don't respond much, but I was wondering if anyone could clarify some of the dates (in modern years and months) the current books take place. I know some books are really good at putting the month and year and some don't, I like to have that information, helps my spatial awareness. Thanks!

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

"Plagues of Night" starts in April 2382 and ends in August 2383.

It's weird to realize that, by "now", Picard's commanded the Enterprise-E for longer than the -D, and the events of the DS9 TV show finished 8 years ago.

Weird in a good way.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Yeah, I know Plagues of Night has the dates and some of the other novels do as well. But going back to roughly post-Nemesis I was wondering if anyone, or any site, had the listings of the year and months that books took place. I really am spatially challenged and it is a handy resource when I can see that year and month, etc.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Memory Beta is still pretty sketchy when it comes to the most recent batch of novels though.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

It's not totally up-to-date, and doesn't give months for everything, but here's the online version of the Voyages of Imagination Star Trek novel timeline (thanks to Therin, who posted it in another thread. My Google-fu is weak)

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Thanks guys, those two sites helped a lot! There are a few books published since they've been updated, so if anyone can help me out with the following I'd appreciate it:

Watching the Clock begins in March 2381 - is that pretty consistent with the entire timeframe?
The Struggle Within ebook? Any dates?
Zero Sum Game I know is mid 2382
Seize the Fire is around the same time frame through late August
how about Paths of Disharmony dates?
Indistinguishable from Magic dates?
Forgotten history begins in Feb 2383
Rough Beasts of Empire dates? I know this one covers a longer span, but curious about the months?
And Plagues of Night is April 2382-August 2383. If anyone can help me with the others I'd appreciate it.

I don't understand the question. If you mean whether the book is consistent with the other novels set in the 2380s, then yes, it is. The book begins in March '81, but continues through to February '82, covering roughly the same span as Rough Beasts of Empire, though the two books mostly take place in each other's gaps. It also contains many flashbacks to earlier dates.

RBoE is February '81 to Feb '82. ZSG begins in April '82 and is mostly in August of that year. StF is around August. PoD is a bit over a year after Picard and Crusher's son is born, making it aorund October. TSW is mid-November to early December '82. IfM part 1 is early January to mid-February '83, and IfM part 2 is mid-March to early April '83. The Forgotten History frame story takes place between IfM's two haves.

Thanks Chris, sorry for the confusion regarding my first question, you answered exactly what I was wondering (when it went up to date wise). Thanks for the answers! 2/3 of the way through Watching the Clock and really enjoying it!
