Re: What unseen Star Trek event do you want to read about next?

^Rise of the Federation would have the same characters as were present in Enterprise the TV show.

Yeah, but not the ship the show got its tittle from.

^Not the same thing. We read or watch series fiction for its characters and storylines. The ship is just a setting. There are Sherlock Holmes stories set during times when Holmes wasn't residing at 221B Baker Street, but that doesn't make them any less Sherlock Holmes stories, because they still featured the main characters.

Re: What unseen Star Trek event do you want to read about next?

While I agree with your point, Christopher, the books weren't called 221B Baker Street so that's not a perfect analogy.

I would also like to see a tale of the ring-ship Enterprise told as a primitive space travel story (and could be a great first contact tale).
I'd like to see that. We know nothing about the ship except what it looks like.

What happened to the Enterprise B?

On that note Chris, have you considered developing the Denobulan's any further in your up coming book? I enjoyed the Phlox character on Enterprise and would love to learn more about his people.
The upcoming book is already written; I'm due to get the copyedits in a couple of days. But if I get to do sequels, yeah, I've had the thought that I should visit Denobula at some point.
Congratulations on a completed book Chris Hopefully it's success leads to more than a few sequels

who gives the books their tittles.

Besides its kind of hard to claim the characters are that big in making something a Star Trek book, when a TOS changed the cast three times.

Plus the characters and storylines argument also falls apart when you remember TNG didn't have the TOS cast, DS9 only had two TNG characters, VOY didn't have the TNG or DS9 cast, and ENT didn't have the VOY, TNG, or DS9 casts and yet their still considered Star Trek.

^You're all over the place there. All you're showing is that there's no universal rule where titles are concerned, that it's an enormous mistake to confuse the label of a thing with its contents. What Greg suggested about a Holmes "spinoff" is nothing like what I'm doing with Rise of the Federation. I should know, because I wrote the darn thing. Your analogy between them is completely wrong because you're fixating on the titles rather than the content.

I admit I am waaaaaaaaaay (like, probably a decade) behind on my Trek Lit reading, but has anything ever been written about Spock's plan for Vulcan/Romulan Re-Unification? I always liked Spock's appearances in TNG, but when he got sucked back in time in ST09, I couldn't help thinking about his life's work that he left behind in the Prime Universe.

Various Typhon Pact novels feature Spock on Romulus, including Rough Beasts of Empire.

More than that, the arc has actually been carried forward, rather than waiting in limbo.

Re: What unseen Star Trek event do you want to read about next?

I'd love to see a definitive "Ro Laren's history" story. I've been told there are one or two versions out there about what happened on Garon II that made her such a disgrace in Starfleet at the time of her introduction on TNG, but somewhere in the DS9 post finale novels there was a scene where Vaughn told her "I know what really happened" that seemed like a tease for an eventual definitive version of that part of her history.

^I'd really like to see some of Ro's history between the Maquis and Militia. We know a little of it from Abyss, but not much.

Didn't see the ENT credits with the mirror Neil Armstrong planting the Terran Empire flag on the moon?
