I miss New Frontier the most, beyond any doubt.

NF was my favorite novel series until the Titan series and then still my solid second favorite. Sad to see it gone.

I'd be okay with someone bringing it back. I know it's Peter David's creation, but as his contract to write the series ran out two years ago, there's no reason another writer couldn't pick the ball up and run with it. I thought all the authors who helped with the New Frontier Anthology did an excellent job. Besides, we all need more Kat Mueller in our lives.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I don't miss Vanguard yet as I'm just on book 5 right now. Seekers is right around the corner. Hopefully I don't have a chance to miss it. I still have one more New Frontier book to go. I have tons of sce/Coe stories to read, and I still haven't finished all the MU and MyrU stories. Even saying all that, I'd still vote for KRAD's Gorkon books. I want more Klag and more trek stories in the current 24th century from the Klingon perspective. Having a typhon pact story or something from their end would be great. I'd love a "tales from the typhon pact" style anthology. one can only hope

..oh. And I still have a few stargazer books to go before I can miss it

Does The Lost Era not count?

Out of these, I'd pick New Frontier, if only because it ended on a cliffhanger.

^Wasn't it recently announced that David R. George III was working on a book set during the lost era?

By the man himself. He didn't share any details about the book but said that it was during that period.

Y'know, I'm thinking Myriad Universes would make an awesome regular eBook series, if Pocket were looking for such a thing...

Personally, I'd be happy if SCE/CoE started up again as an eBook series. It was quite good.

I would buy as many Myriad Universe titles as they were willing to release. Love those.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

Vanguard had run its course, but there are still aftermath type stories to tell. But the Myriad Universe stories were special (well, most of them anyway) and I've love to see more, especially that Kahn story.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I miss COE the most, even though I haven't read all stories yet.

MyrU and MU were among my favourite series. Remember, there was a Dominion cliffhanger.

VGD was epic and had a worthy finale. I'm not missing it because Seekers is right around the corner.

STA and KE are on my reading-list but I haven't started on them yet.

I wonder what the poll results would look like if DS9-R was part of the question.

If DS9 relaunch was apart of the poll, that would have inevitably got my vote as well.

Agreed. They did indeed.

Yes, we do.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

Since "Strange New Worlds" and "Myriad Universes" are gone there has been a shortage of short-form fiction. Anybody ever think of the idea of including an "extra" short in the same book as a novel? (As was done way back when with "Starfleet-Year One".)

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I too would love to get a book set after The Soul Key that actually resolves the Ascendants. We've gotten a bunch of hints, but I want the whole story!

My vote, though, would actually go to stories set within the TV shows TNG, DS9, Voyager, and ENT. I think if you were clever you could find some really interesting spaces to fill...in particular, I'd LOVE a book set in between the first two or three episodes of TNG, retroactively connecting character arcs to the more stilted writing and performing back then. It seems weird to me that TOS books set within the 5 year mission do so well, but they're not publishing any similarly-set 24th century novels.
