Deranged Nasat's Chronological Review Run-Through of Trek

Some of you might enjoy Deranged Nasat's review of all Trek, chronologically. Currently, he is in the middle of Enterprise's first season, a bit after after ''Shadows of P'Jem''. It's really good so far!

So, I've decided to begin my long-planned chronological run-through of the Star Trek universe; that is, the Star Trek universe as I engage with it, which means the modern literary continuity along with the canonical stuff (hence why I'm posting here, not in General Trek). I'd like to evaluate it all as one extended narrative, exploring this fictional setting as it tells the story of an growing galactic community, as handled by a wealth of writers in two different media. That's not usually how it works, of course, nor how it would be experienced by anyone in reality, but to me personally the modern novels are just as important to my sense of what Star Trek is as the TV shows - I was introduced to both at more or less the same time (around 2001-2002), and have always experienced them together. Add to that my love of continuity and consistency, and I think it's worth following the story of Humans-in-space across the centuries.

So I'll be reading and commenting on novels, short stories and other novel 'verse outings, as well as the TV shows and films, with a particular eye to how they enhance each other or how my take on the latter might be altered by viewing them through the prism of their relationship with the novels. I'll also be working through it all in terms of internal chronology, and that means not everything will be read in the same way I read it originally (nor indeed how it was intended to be read). Basically, I'll sometimes be reading/commenting on parts of books rather than the whole thing, depending on what I think works in each case. Some things on my list I'll watch or read twice, at different points. Yes, it's gimmicky, but hopefully it will also mean a new angle on some of the material.

I have no idea how far I'll get, but this will be ongoing.

His first review seems to be of one of the novels, and I don't read Trek fiction anymore, so no thanks.

Re: Deranged Nasat's Chronological Review Run-Through of Trek

^Actually it's a mix of book and episode reviews in chronological order -- and since there are few books set during ENT's run, it's mostly episode reviews at this point. It is mainly from a Trek Lit perspective, but I find there are some interesting insights being offered on the episodes.

I've read a few episode reviews, but Deranged Nasat's positions and my own are such polar opposites across the board that I stopped.

^ Fair does, although I guess it would be interesting and fruitful to bring up disagreements in-thread.
