^As I said, they never explicitly said they used ideas from those novels as a basis for writing the movie, at least not in the interview I'm aware of and that I linked to above; they just said they liked those novels. Certainly there is some sign of novel influence in their use of novel-coined first names for Kirk's parents and Uhura, but beyond that we can't be sure.

Re: Newbie

Crud, my post was the last on the previous page. To the OP, an important point I wanted to make was that if there are any particularly elements from the Abrams movies that you are curious about, people on here can guide you to books that offer variations on the story material you are interested in exploring.

I was writing out my post before I saw that. What can you do?

I had no idea I was casually chating with big names of the Star Trek Literature! I agree with you Relayer1, this is pretty uncommon...
I checked Christopher & Greg's bibliographies; they're quite impressive indeed
I'll be following those advices all the more trustily, actually I just ordered a half dozen TOS books, among which 'The weight of worlds' - I'll soon see if I side with you about Greg being a VERY good author ;> (kidding)

In any case, thanks everybody for the advices and precise explanations!

If you want to check out a good Voyager book set during the series, check out Greg Cox's "The Black Shore". It's from the Kes era (that's the first three season's) of the show, which was the best era for Voyager.

Wow. Thanks again.

It seems like such a long time ago that I wrote that book . . ..
