Oh, and give Nerys Ghemor (what happened to her, anyway?) and Gul Re'jal a chance to write a real Trek novel. I've read their fanfic, it's amazing!
Nerys Ghemor can write my Hebitian/Bajoran book.

Re: Treklit Wish List

I usually bring out a thread like this once a year or so, and I was very glad to see you guys do a show on this topic. I really enjoyed the episode.

I'll think about my current wishlist when I get off work and post it tonight.

Re: Treklit Wish List

In the podcast, their top two picks were basically my own top two picks: More TOS movie-era stories, and more Mirror Universe (picking up from the last cliffhanger in David's novel with the Dominion).

Their sub-era picks in the first category are also exactly in line with my own: the time period immediately following The Motion Picture, and post-The Voyage Home/pre-Undiscovered Country.

Quite excited we're finally going to be getting a new movie-era novel this fall, but also depressed to think that the last one was released way back in the spring of 2010 (Unspoken Truth, not counting James Swallow's Cast No Shadow in 2011, which was really more Lost Era than "true" TOS movie-period).

This.

If she's still interested, giving D.C. Fontana the chance to write that Secret of Vulcan Fury novelization.

If New Frontier is to be no more, then one final novel to "wrap it up" and resolve the cliffhanger from Blind Man's Bluff. That can't be how it ends...

An un-cancellation of the Crucible omnibus, with all the extra content.

Bring back KRAD, and Andy Mangels.

Oh, and did I mention:

Re: Treklit Wish List

Well not counting what is (presumably) on schedule or in talks, here are my top wishes:

Deep Space Nine storylines between The Soul Key and Rough Beasts of Empire (Illiana Ghemor, the Ascendants, the halt to exploration of the Gamma Quadrant, etc)
Restart the Corps of Engineers, Klingon Empire, and Myriad Universes series
More Enterprise-C stories
World War III (How did the Eastern Coalition come about? What years did it really take place/progressively escalate?)
The lead ship of the pre-Federation Earth Daedalus class
The prime reality's Kelvin in the 2220s/2230s and Robert April's years commanding the Enterprise (I'd like to see the Battle of Donatu V and Battle of Axanar properly explained)
A Romulan version of I.K.S. Gorkon/Klingon Empire
Official Federation first contact with the Betazoids, Takarans, and Na'kuhl
Updates on Charvanek, Uhura, Chekov, McCoy, and Scotty
Stuff by KRAD.

Re: Treklit Wish List

If I had my wish, the current line up (which I'm quite happy with) would be supplemented by:
-TOS movie era books (I'm excited for Greg's new book)
-TOS second 5YM stories continuing on from Christopher's various stories
-Lost Era books featuring the Enterprise-B and Demora Sulu
-Hikaru Sulu stories on the Excelsior and on any other ships
-KRAD's return to prominence (with some Klingon Empire stories in tow)
-multiple VOY-R books a year
-DEEP SPACE NINE
-more William Leisner

that's it...for now

Did you catch - I posted in the Shore Leave thread that Peter David confirmed he is indeed working on another NF novel. (Whether it's the end or not, he didn't say, but at least it won't end there.)

Good call on the Crucible omnibus, too.

Re: Treklit Wish List

My picks:
*Exploration of some of the lesser seen parts of Starfleet/The Federation, with my top picks being Starfleet Medical, Starfleet Intelligence, and The Federation Diplomatic Corps.
*Return of KRAD and Andy Mangels
*More Myriad Universes
*DS9 Ascendants Storyline
*More TOS movie era, hopefully Foul Deeds Will Rise will be the beginning of a trend
*Some TV series era stories for DS9, TNG, and Voy. I would love to see what authors like David Mack, Dayton Ward, Christopher L. Bennett and James Swallow would do with the TV era casts.

Ah, no I didn't, I don't think I've been in that thread. That's good news, thanks for letting me know!

Re: Treklit Wish List

The DS9 Three Year Gap.
A general slowdown in the 24th Century stories in terms of how quickly the years go. 2377 lasted for years, 2382 was barely here a fortnight.
Some one-shot stories using the 24th century crews at present. (Or backfill. What was the Enterprise doing between Losing the Peace and Paths of Disharmony. There's about 12 months there.)
Get Alan Gratz to do a prime timeline book.

Agreed. Why not go back a bit. Titan even had a 3 year gap

A couple of people did say in the Shore Leave thread that they are going to be slowing things down some now.
