What was the first Trek book you remember reading?

I didn't read a lot growing up for the most part so I didn't really get into the books till the 90s but I read the Return first followed by Crossover. The latter is still my favorite book, although I did enjoy the Shatnerverse books, even with as goofy as they get.

This is a lovely thread idea, but sadly we already had it once before: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=156964

(Thumbs up for the magnificent Crossover, though!)

OK I see your link there but when I went back through the 4 pages I do not see that topic.

^ That's fine, I mostly remembered it because I participated in it myself back then.

Some of the Blish novelisations of episodes. The first novel I read not based on a tv ep was Spock Must Die.

Probably the novelization of Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Re: What was the first Trek book you remember reading?

Orion's Hounds was my first, I was curious about the Titan series. The Good That Men Do was shortly after due to my hatred of These Are the Voyages

Admittedly, I may have skipped a few pages in the middle when they get a little slow but for someone that's never read a book all the way through it's impressive.

Either The TMP novel, The Entropy Effect (which I can recall pretty much nothing about) or one of the Blish adaptations.

It was a long time ago...and far far away.

Re: What was the first Trek book you remember reading?

The only Trek novel I've ever read was called The Lost Years, or something like that. That's been close to 20 years ago, probably. Is anyone here familiar with it? If so, how is it regarded in the world of Trek novels?

I've sort of been interested in reading more, but I'd likely be very selective.
