I voted S.C.E., but I'd also welcome Challenger. Diane Carey's best work, I'd say. I miss Shucorion.

Looking at the series listed, it did occur to me that many of these could relatively easily be continued without a book of their own as guest spots or subplots.

Articles didn't sell that well, but Bacco's story has continued without an 'Articles II'.

Come on authors - pick up some threads !

Voted SCE. I really think that it would be interesting to do more with them.. or at LEAST catch up with them. I'm love to see a SCE presence in The Fall, even.
We did see of the SCE and IKS Gorkon characters in A Singular Destiny .

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

We really could see more of them in current titles - the SCE could be fitted into the Typhon Pact novels easily and so could the New Frontier cast and the Klingons.

We are getting a Vanguard follow up in Seekers, and I hope that will have some TMP content occasionally. Stargazer is a bit isolated timewise, but as DS9 showed, the MU could still show up !

BTW, does anybody know whether Star Trek: Typhon Pact will resume following the conclusion of The Fall?

I presume The Fall is TP related in all but title.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

The story of the Typhon Pact is not a specific series or storyline, just the current astropolitical status quo. They've already featured in several novels that didn't have a specific Typhon Pact banner, including A Singular Destiny and Books 1-2 of Cold Equations. Think of it like the Section 31 miniseries -- just because there was a specific run of books by that title, that didn't keep Section 31 from appearing in other books. And the Dominion War was featured in books that didn't have The Dominion War in the title.

I hope we do get to see more of them.

I understand. The Typhon Pact continues to play a role but I wonder whether series title Typhon Pact may be reused.

Also a solid choice. I know opinions of Carey are all over the place, but I really thought that series had potential. Oh well.

Same here, although I found the resolution to the cliffhanger from the novel in the final book to be a bit off-putting.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I probably should have included Challenger, but TBH I forgot it even existed. I've never read any of it's stories, so it isn't one that comes immediately to mind when thinking of Trek Lit series.

I'm really glad I'm not the only one who wanted more Challenger. It certainly felt that way for the longest time.

Yes, Shucorion was brilliant. And I really, really liked Keller.

Of the major series that have ended or are on "permanent hiatus," I do probably miss Vanguard most, but Challenger will always be the thing I would want more of.

On another note, I'm kind of surprised no one seems to miss Stargazer at all... my personal opinion of MJF's so-called writing aside.

But even more than any of the novels, what I really miss are the two best Trek comics from the late 90s Marvel era: The Early Voyages and Starfleet Academy.

Can we please, bloody please, get Dan Abnett to write a Pike novel?

I'd buy that.

Any particular reason you picked Abnett, though, aside from just liking his writing? Has he expressed an interest in this or something?

Uhm, because he's already written Pike. While I'm a fan of his writing in general (especially his Guardians of the Galaxy and related work with Andy Lanning at Marvel), I make the suggestion mostly because co-authored the 17 issues of Marvel's Early Voyages comic, along with several issues of Star Trek Unlimited. Early Voyages is arguably the greatest Trek comic series ever published, and certainly the best of Marvel's output.

In fact, given his knowledge of Trek, and his rather prolific career as a sci-fi tie-in writer, I've always been rather surprised he hasn't done a Trek novel to date.

I agree on Challenger - I'd love to see more there.

I voted for MyrU, I'm a fan of What If-stories, so that series of novellas just was right up my alley.
