"Andor: Paradigm", in "Worlds of DS9", features only the most fleeting cameo by Nog.
I just finished that book this evening! So good! What an interesting species the Andorians have become.
Indeed! I was yearning that book since December 1979 - glimpses of Andorians in publicity material, flashback images of Andorians in TOS and TAS, and waiting through the next few years for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture II".

I knew in my gut that we'd never get an entire novel set on Andor, but now there's been "Paradigm" and "Paths of Disharmony". (And "Ex Machina", which is essentially "Star Trek: The Motion Picture II".)

I'm still waiting for a miniseries about World War III. That would not, technically speaking, be Star Trek, but it'd be in that universe.

Re: Novels set in the Trek universe... but not about Star Trek?

I once, as an exercise for a writing class at a local junior college, wrote a SS about the fauna and former sentients of M113, in the form of a news interview with the son of Robert and Nancy Crater (although Captain Sulu appears in it). And I also wrote a Borg origin SS, for that same class (although V'GER appears in that one). Both, of course, unpublished (except that I think one of them might have gone into the class anthology).

Now if you'd be happy with a milieu that's a lot like ST, (and you like ADF's novelizations), then I humbly suggest ADF's Humanx Commonwealth books.

Re: Novels set in the Trek universe... but not about Star Trek?

As an update thanks for all the recommendations, i completed The Final Reflection a few days ago, excellent book. Its a pity the TOS Klingons couldn't have lived on alongside the film/TNG headbanger variety. A dual species empire, would have made the forehead question simpler anyway.

Now on Articles... which is very good too. I guess we could do with an updated version of this nowadays.
