Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I suspect that's a question you're not going to get an answer to, beyond "well enough to merit working on a third volume before the first two even came out."

Regarding p.13 - I assume that this was just after they discovered the value of the bead that they received from the Wong family?

I apologize if this has already been asked, but:



Does any author want to write that? Are they planning to?

^ Apparently, Martin & Mangels were working on something like that with Marco, but it was delayed due to the run-up to Destiny...and then he was laid off.

No word on future plans.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Well, I have fianlly had a chance to start the Seven Deadly Sins anthology and was happy to find references to both Vanguard and Errand of.. in the Romulan "Pride" story and an appearance of Rom and Leeta's baby Bena from the DS9R in the Ferengi "Greed" story.

Hopefully, I will find time to finish the book soon.

^ Right. There are actually over 600 Star Trek novels; they've been published since the 60s.

Yeah, real novels with words and no pictures. Just like TV/film Trek, some are terrible, some are mediocre and some are brilliant. If you give them a try, please don't judge all 600 bad if you happen to pick up a crappy one first.

Okay! As you can tell I am definitely a Star Trek newbie. But, OMG! NOVELS! Hmm...I wonder if I can check them out from a library. Does anyone have favorites?

Here is the terrifying answer the last person who asked that question got.

EDIT: Fixed the link. These things weren't meant to be done on a phone.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

I've just given this thread a somewhat thorough skimming, specifically looking for one answer, so please forgive if I missed it (and just point me to the right post#), but is there a "starting point" for the current "all-in" Trek novel-verse? The first few pages are great for pointing out where each of the series went and how they're related, but is there a basic list that says where the (fairly new) concept of tying the novels together started and in what basic order they go?

I've been kinda wanting to know for myself, and then recently on one of my other forums, someone was discussing which you prefer: the SW prequels, or the TNG films, and someone brought up how the current Trek novels are tied together and such, and of course somebody else asked "which" novels and I had no idea where to tell them to start.

thanks

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

^That's a really hard thing to define. Probably the best place to start in regards to a "starting point", the closest thing I would say to one would be the Avatar duology, the start of the post-finale DS9 books or maybe even the SCE.

But realize that New Frontier, Stargazer and SCE all actually pre-date the DS9-R in terms of release date. Also, the TNG novel Diplomatic Implausibilty pre-dated Avatar but provided foreshadowing for the DS9-R.

Yeah, there's no real cutoff point, since a lot of the books published before the modern continuity emerged have been retroactively included in it, even while others have been contradicted.

Re: Charting the Novel-verse

Avatar (pretty much) began the modern, integrated continuity. But the DS9 stories kind of petered out in 2377, and the continuity is much MORE integrated around the time of Nemesis, so the other good starting point is the A Time To... series mentioned in the Core TNG Continuity on the first page.
