Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

The most Star Trek novel I have read is The Return by William Shatner, it is in my top 10 list next to Destiny triology, and the Typhon Pact duology by David R. GeorgeIII, and Star Trek Voyager: Full Circle.

Even though Star Trek:The Return was not exactly canon with normal trek time line i've always wished this book was made into a movie. It is one of my top favorite star trek reads.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

for me it's basically novels by Mack, KRAD and PAD (with Spock's World, Immortal Coil and Prime Directive thrown in for good measure..)

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I'm still trying to read all the relauch Star Trek books for the first time. And I have so much novels to catch up that I don't have time to re-read. But your answers are very interesting because usually books that you re-read a lot are very good books. So I note some books from your lists

I've re-read some parts of Mangels'/Martin's "The Good That Men Do" and William Leisner's "A Less Perfect Union". The latter was as especially enjoyable read.
Thanks!

The Rift, Q-Squared, Imzadi... I just finished rereading The Q Continuum. Federation is good to go back to, also...

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

So far I've never read a Trek novel more than twice. I've re-read the TNG and DS9 relaunches in order to refresh my memory after a long gap in publishing so that I'd have the events fresh in my mind when a new novel was finally released (I remember specifically doing this when Fearful Symmetry was finally coming out after such a long delay).

I am sure at some point I will go back and re-read them again. Destiny is certainly the kind of story that I could enjoy revisiting every few years. I'll probably go back through and re-read the whole of Vanguard at some point, as well as the Kirsten Beyer-penned VOY series.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I've read The Vulcan Academy Murders by Jean Lorrah the most, at least a dozen times. Next would be Yesterday's Son and Time for Yesterday by A C Crispin; and of course Spock's World by Diane Duane.

Q-Squared.

I re-read it so many times over a few months that my library wouldn't let me re-borrow it any more. Then when I bought a copy, I re-read that many more times over the years.

I got quite a bit out of all those re-reads, since I wasn't too familiar with Star Trek when I first read it. My increasing knowledge helped me pick up on more of the episode references each time.

It's still my favourite Trek book.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I used to re-read Star Trek novels quite a lot until several years ago, when I started buying more new (to me) books. Now, I mostly read stuff I haven't read yet, with the exception of some New Frontier books. I've read the first five or six of them three or four times, because I would start the series and then just never get around to buying the next books in the series. But within the past year I've actually been making decent progress on moving along.

I've reread Micheal Jan Friedman's Reunion novel and Una McCormacks ds9 novels Hollow Men and her novel about Cardassia.Q-in law that book has some great scenes in it.LXwana getting even with Q is my favorite part of the book.

I don't re-read much Trek. I know that as a teen, I re-read Q-in-Law and Imzadi several times. I've been thru the early books of the DS9 relaunch 2 or 3 times.

Outside Trek, I have to revist Anne McCaffery's Pern every few years. I get homesick.
