What concluded series do you miss the most?

Over the last few years quite a few series have been finished, either voluntarily or canceled, so I thought it might be interesting to see which series the posters on here miss the most.
Personally, I'd say MU, MyrU SCE and Vanguard.
I really enjoyed NF too, but it had a good run. The last few books had been good, but they still never really reached the quality of the first 6 or 7 books.
I really enjoyed Diplomatic Implausability, but I haven't read past that point in IKS Gorkon, so I don't feel familiar enough to say I miss it.
I've never read Stargazer.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

Is it official that there will be no new New Frontier novel? The novels were fun, but the last ones haven't been that good.
I really liked SCE, but I haven't read all books yet. So no reason to miss it.
Vanguard was great. I finished it only recently. It's sad that it's over, but with next year's start of Seekers and the return of some of the established characters, I don't think I will miss it that much.
The same is true for the Mirror Universe saga. The characters and stories were all pretty cool, but I think the conclusion was okay and there is no need to tell anything else.
I didn't read Stargazer or Gorkon, so I can't say anything about these.

I really enjoyed some of the stories from Myriad Universes. Particularly "A Gutted World". I would love to see some more of those AUs come back again.

Part of the fun of star trek, as opposed to some other franchises, is that AUs are embraced in canon. Keeping it to short stories also lets authors go wild with whatever concept they have in mind.

Definatly Vanguard, but I'm also glad it's over. Not that it was bad, far from it. But it had a good, strong ending. And I like that. No continues dragging out of stories.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I don't really miss Vanguard, as it didn't end all that long ago, and now The Seekers is on the horizon.

I do miss Klingon Empire, as it was nice to see things from a Klingon perspective every once in a while. And I want more of Myriad Universes, for that alternate take.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

SCE/CoE (SCoE?) remains one of my favourite series, so I will always want to see it come back.

There's still more Klingon Empire stories to be told; we've had a glimpse of how things end up thanks to Destiny (as we did with CoE, in fact), but there's still more I'd like to see.

As much as I love NF and will miss it, I think it's pretty much concluded. Anything more would feel almost like a re-launch.

Me too. That, and the Mirror Universe series. I didn't know they had been formally cancelled, I just figured that sales weren't strong enough that they had been discontinued.

I'm gonna go out on a limb a say the original Deep Space Nine Relaunch. Still waiting to go back to continue on from the end of The Soul Key.

Whoa ... I had somehow completely missed the news about The Seekers.

I ticked the box for SCE/CoE.

I was pretty sure that Rise Like Lions was meant to be the end of the MU series. I guess there is a chance it could come back, but I don't find it likely.
As for MyrU, they seem to have stopped releasing trade collections like those, so unless they start doing full length novels, which I doubt, then I'm pretty sure we won't be seeing any more MyrU either.

And while I included SCE/CoE on my list, I've actually only read the first dozen or so books. I just think it is kind of sad that the series ended just before e-readers and e-books really started to pick up in popularity.

Well, I know of at least one writer who posts here who's said he's interested in doing a Myriad Universes story because he's always had one in mind that he wants to try. I'm not sure what kind of story that is, but I'd be interested in seeing this series revived. There are so many possibilities.

Following the last movie, I'm desperate for one last installment - Myriad Universes: Khan. One of the very first stories talked about for MyrU (then known as Split Infinities) was, "What if the Botany Bay was found by the crew of the Enterprise-D?"

I don't think I ever heard about that. I would love to read that story.

As would I just for the opportunity to see Khan kick Worf's ass and Data taking out the other Supermen all by himself. And any TNG novel has to have Riker putting his foot on Data's console while thrusting his pelvis at the back of his head.
