Tasha Yar novels

I'm just trying to figure out which novels Tasha Yar appears in as a character (not just in flashbacks).

I know that she appears in the first 4 numbered TNG, then #51, the first book in the Double Helix series.

Does she appear in any other books?

Of course! How about "The Buried Age" and novelizations of "Encounter at Farpoint" and "All Good Things..."?

Sure. Use the "Find" facility on the MB page. "On a mission to the planet Treva, Yar was kidnapped by followers of Darryl Adin, who was now a mercenary and freelance freedom fighter aiding the rebels on that world" ["Survivors"].

Adin returns in "Metamorphosis", but Tasha is dead by then.

I wasn't sure if it was in the Yar bio or not.

She's kind of in Q-Squared. Don't really want to spoil the "kind of" if you haven't read it yet.

^ She is in it then. I thought I remembered her being in it, but I wasn't confident enough to post about it.

Re: Tasha Yar novels

If I remember right, Jim Johnson's "A Terrible Beauty" from the Shards and Shadows anthology featured (albeit briefly) Tasha Yar from the mirror universe.

Re: Tasha Yar novels

I think all of the novels have been covered but out of all of those I think that Survivors is the book where she is the main character throughout.

Briefly but pretty damn memorably.

Tasha crops up briefly in Vulcan's Heart, among the Enterprise-C survivors.

Re: Tasha Yar novels

I read Q-Squared about ten years ago, so I vaugely remember Tasha being in there.

And I did not forget about the novelizations, but I didn't mention them since I was thinking of original fiction with the Tasha from Season 1, and I realize that there isn't that much time for her since she was only on the show for 23 episodes, unlike the others where they

I do have The Buried Age, but I just haven't had a chance to read it yet. And I know that she definitely is not in #8 The Captain's Honor, since that book takes place just before or after The Neutral Zone.

I was also trying to think of any other books where we saw Yar at the Academy, besides in Survivors the few flashback scenes.

Survivors (#4) is the last numbered novel to take place before Skin of Evil, so that's the last of the early numbered novels with Tasha in it. (Wikipedia has a timeline for all the novel series, and someone else has a more comprehensive timeline.)

I could be wrong, but I can't recall any other Academy-Yar stuff besides Survivors; even the numbered children's books never featured her, AFAIK.

#51 (book 1 of the Double Helix saga) of the TNG line has her in the story, since it's set around 'Code Of Honor'.

But with the Academy series it's surprising that Wesley was never in the series, since Wesley would've been a natural for the series (he left in Season 4 and then returned in Season 5 for an episode that came out close to the release of the Academy series).
