Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I was thinking it might be a good idea to include a list of the e-book exclusive stories either here or in the FAQ thread. We've had 2 or 3 threads with people asking about then in the last few months.

All we know at this point is that it will be billed as a TNG book, the title is Takedown, and it's due into stores in the last week of January 2015.

It was mentioned in this thread: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=248221

We also know what J.J. Miller has told Visionary Trek on their podcast. The Trek Collective has a write down of the most important parts:

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

While reading through the Lit-Verse site, a question came to mind, where should I start with the TOS books? Are they not 'interconnected' like the TNG/DS9/etc books are?

Wherever you want. There is no real 'interconnected-ness' other than minor shoutouts in the TOS books. The Vanguard series, as well as the upcoming Seekers series, take place during the same rough time period as TOS, and THEY are interconnected.

Alright. I'm reading Vanguard at the moment (which is amazing, albeit a bit difficult to visualize at times) and I'm looking to see what else I can pick up in regards to Trek books.

What's this Seeker series, might I ask?

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Seekers is a new series coming from David Mack, Dayton Ward, and Kevin Dilmore, the three writers behind Vanguard (minus Marco Palmieri this time ). The series follows two ships (the Endeavour & the Sagitarius) that were a part of the Vanguard series in the time after Vanguard ended. According to Mr. Mack, the series kicks off in 2269. To say much more may spoil Vanguard for you. The first book comes out in a week or two, while the second one is out the last week of August

Sounds good. I'm still on Harbinger, so I've got some way to go. It's a very well-written book so far, even though, as I said, it's a bit hard to visualize the areas of the station at times.

A bit unrelated, but, are there any books that I should pick up from each of the series? I'm definitely going to see if I can find the A Time To Be Born to begin my journey into the expanded universe, but, I want to know if there's anything else I should look into.

Oh so many! Check out the flowchart attached to Thrawn's signature in post #377 near the top of the page. So many fantastic books...

Yeah, I've got that bookmarked. Are there any in specific that you would recommend? Doesn't matter if they are from a series or a stand-alone book.
