I've never read a ST novel and there seems to be hundreds. Any suggestions on one that doesn't suck?

Re: Suggestions?

It's hard to just randomly pick a Star Trek novel to recommend. There are hundreds of novels, in dozens of different styles and sub-genres. Do you want a character study, a political thriller, a comedy, an adventure story? Do you have a favorite series, or maybe a favorite character who you want to read a book focused on? Are you interested in any particular authors who have written Trek books?
