Though PAD's Starfleet Academy YA novels include Zak, Soleta, and McHenry alongside teen-Worf, so they're kinda NF-ish.
Although those characters actually originated in the Academy books and then got resurrected as part of the NF cast. So it's more like they're proto-NF-ish.

The first one is available for US$5.99 for the Nook, and the rest of the series and the TOS and VOY YA books are all available as used paperbacks for between US$.99 and US$1.99 on the Barnes and Noble website.

Is Michael Jan Friedmans Reunion contradicted by any other book or comic?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Does it matter if it is, in some minor way?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I grew up with Sw EU so i like to keep my universe consistent.

What about the "Errand Trilogies"?

Not that I know of; on the contrary, it's become the one source that every other book or comic about the Stargazer has treated as gospel. Although it has been contradicted in a couple of small ways by later canon. For one thing, it shows Jack Crusher dying during a repair operation in space, but a later TNG episode established that Jack died on an "away mission," although no other details were given (so it's possible to reconcile it if you squint a little). For another, it was written based on the assumption of early TNG that holodecks were a fairly recent innovation, because there's a scene where Worf is showing off the Enterprise's holodeck to the visiting Starfleet officers and explaining how it works, and they're all amazed as if they've never seen one before. It was later established that holodecks were an earlier and more commonplace invention, so that scene feels rather awkward today.

But those are no worse than the inconsistencies between earlier and later canon episodes when it comes to things like the holodeck or character backstories or whatever. For that reason, and because of how influential Reunion has become on subsequent Trek Lit, I find it's best just to gloss over the minor continuity issues and accept the bulk of the work. (I just skip over the "Here's how a holodeck works" sequence.)

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Are there comics/comic series that don't follow the main characters(those who were on tv) besides Starfleet Academy and Early Voyages?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

there is a NF one-shot called "Double Time" from Wildstorm and a mini-series called "Turnabout" from IDW.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

There's way more than that...
  • Marvel published a Romulan/ Borg comic entitled 'Operation: Assimilation.'
  • Wildstorm published a comic anthology 'Star Trek Special' which contained a few stories not based on the main characters.
  • IDW has 6 or 7 issues which star TOS Romulans.
  • They also published several Alien Spotlight, Crew, and Captain's Log comics which either star all new characters or at least secondary characters.
  • There's also IDWs Assignment: Earth miniseries starring Gary Seven.
  • There are several issues of Malibu and DC comics which I think are basically spin offs which don't star the main characters much if at all, but I couldn't tell you offhand which ones.
