I can just imagine the rage knowledgeable TrekLit fans would unleash if they heard Travissty was going to publish a Trek story.
Actually, as a life-long Star Wars fan, I think Traviss' books are the best thing to come out of the Prequel era (narrowly beating out the cartoon series), and I for one would love to see what she could do with the Jem'Hadar or the Talarians.
I have the complete opposite opinion of Traviss. She is rather divisive in the Star Wars EU, and I wouldn't want her anywhere near Star Trek.
Don't forget what's she's doing to Halo - recasting one of the good characters in the universe as a mad scientist resented by everyone who has worked with/for her, making the morally repugnant and stupid military intelligence branch the good guys, and just making loathsome story choices whenever she can.

That does it, Pocket has to hire this woman and make her write a story in the Trek novelverse continuity right now. Let's shake things up a bit!

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

Vanguard. It was the most well-written. I didn't really get far into Stargazer or SCE. I did enjoy the mirror universe and the myriad universes. I lost interest in New Frontier after awhile, as it seemed to get crazier and crazier as the books went on. The first 7 or so books were pretty good, particularly the early arc that ends with Thallon blowing up.

^ There's no "The" in the series title. It's simply STAR TREK: SEEKERS.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I voted for the Klingon series because I miss that different view of the Star Trek world. I thought Vanguard and Mirror Universe had satisfying conclusions so I'm happy to let them be, even though Seekers is coming out, which I am looking forward to. It would also be nice if there was a final NF novel but yeah, I would enjoy more Klingon books the most.

Yep. They did the original version of "Red Rubber Ball" didn't they? I've heard of 'em. And of course that damn "Georgy Girl"

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

"Red Rubber Ball" was done by the Cyrcle. It was co-written by Paul Simon (of Simon and Garfunkel) and Bruce Woodley (of The Seekers. (from wikipedia).

The Seekers recorded their own version first, IIRC.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

Looks like they all did it in 1966 (along with Neil Diamond and Mel Torme, of all people). The Cyrcle version was the biggest hit, but you may well be right.

Over the last few years quite a few series have been finished, either voluntarily or canceled, so I thought it might be interesting to see which series the posters on here miss the most.

Re: What concluded series do you miss the most?

I'm not quite sure what the actual status of DS9 is right now. We aren't getting books credited as DS9, but we are seeing the characters and continuing their stories on a regular basis. It's kind of a weird situation IMO.
