guest characters would you like to see in Trek Lit

Just wondering what guest characters folks would like to see more in Trek Lit?

For me, I always wished Nicholas Locarno (from First Duty) would have been explored more in the novels.

My other pick would be Sam Lavelle (Lower Decks). I wished he would pop up more often, but I have a feeling he is more of a "Riker 2.0" hence authors don't use him much.

I did like Dr Selar, but I think PAD ruined her in New Frontier (again, even tho' I am current with the NF, I just never like the wacky/zaniness of NF, but was glad Selar showed up there.

Without going into story ideas, what guest characters do you wish you saw more of???

Sam Lavelle was used in the TNG Dominion War novels, right?

Yeah, I read the 7 Deadly Sins Story, I still recall picking up the book and psyched that Locarno had a role only to be disappointed in the end.

Okana...in a DS9 story perhaps.
Or even an Okana/Tom Riker team-up.

It'd be interesting if some of the kids from the Enterprise-D started popping up in novels as adults.

Mirasta Yale. Got to First Contact on my re-watch of TNG on blu ray and really liked her a lot. I've always wondered what happened to her.

Yes, agreed. When I first watched Star Trek, and not entirely understanding how TV worked, I actually expected her to show up again at some point, and was disappointed when she never did.

When I think about it, I kind of hope that she'd be involved in the Re-Contact with the Malcorians in some way.

Correct. He also appears in the Marvel comic "Second Contact", an X-Men crossover. And an alternate reality version of him appears in Myriad Universes - Echoes and Refractions - Brave New World.
