Re: Best Novels, Comics, etc. Set Between TOS Season 3 and ST:TMP?

Crossroad, Dreadnought!, Black Fire, The Lost Years and Forgotten History are all excellent novels set between TOS and TMP. They're not all in continuity with each other, though.

The Wounded Sky and My Enemy, My Ally were originally set in a Star Trek: Phase II (not the recent fan films, the original planned continuation of TOS) -esque second five-year mission *before* TMP, with a kind of halfway refitted Enterprise. ME, MA was later retconned into happening duting the original TOS five year mission and then re-retconned into having happened post-TMP by later books in the Rihannsu series.

TAS was all over the place with episode stardates ranging from before Where No Man... to past TMP, if I remember correctly.... Better to think of TAS taking place in an alternate reality.
For the "Star Trek Logs" adaptations, Alan Dean Foster changed all the stardates, and gave a new running order for the episodes, adding new bridging scenes to make the three episodes per book run into each other - almost seamlessly - and the characters reference previous TAS adventures.

Not airdate order, nor production order. If someone is reading the adaptations of TAS, the revised ADF stardates are the ones to use.

Well, Dreadnought! is directly referenced in The Lost Years, so those two are in continuity (specifically the '80s novel continuity); and Crossroad is alluded to in Forgotten History, so those two are in continuity (specifically the modern novel continuity). Black Fire, on the other hand, is off in a world of its own in so many ways...

Supposedly. The version in The Bloodwing Voyages didn't get rid of all the TOS-isms, though (in MEMA or in Swordhunt). It changed the ranks, but left in stuff like the TOS uniforms, Chekov being at navigation, and Enterprise not yet having the TMP refit.

Post-TMP gives a more realistic timeline for The Romulan Way, so that's probably the way to go (and The Empty Chair is definitely post-TMP), but after so many years of considering them as being in the TOS era I find it hard to give that up!

Crossroad also references Mr. Mahase, an alien crewman who appears in several other Original Lit-verse books, so it's one of those rare books linked to both the old and new continuities.

Thanks for all the recommendations! I'll start off with the books that bridge the series and film, the Lost Years books.
