I've been thinking about slowly getting some of the Trek books I'm not familiar with, mostly from near the end/after the numbered book era. There is a lot of them, so (while I may be opening myself up to some cheap shots) I'd honestly like to know some recommendations and opinions. First off, I've done some looking on my own, and my personal list of books I'm looking closest at is: New Frontier (Hardcover collection of first 4 New frontier Books) Have Tech Will Travel (Collection of first 4 SCE stories) Lives of Dax Hollow Men The Never Ending Sacrifice Tales of the Dominion War Harbinger Ex Machina Constellations anthology Q & A The Buried Age The Sundered I'm curious what people think of these books. I'm also open to recommendations. I'd prefer books that aren't part of a specific mini-series, duology or trilogy. I know I have Harbinger on there, which is the beginning of a 7 or so book series, but I mostly don't want books that have a story that I need to get the other books immediately to get a whole individual story. Its the difference between a mini series like The Fall and one story spread over two books like Avatar (which I intend to get eventually but isn't on the list right now since I'm looking for more individual stories right now). I could read any of The Fall or typhoon Pact books and at least get an individual story, even if its events interconnect with the other books in the series. When it comes to TrekLit, I actually like a lot of different stories (Believe it or not ). I'm a fan of TNG/DS9 about equally, I like TOS fairly well and I like Voyager well enough, and some of my favorite books weren't focused on any of the TV shows at all. I'm also a huge Q fan (which I mention specifically because he's a big enough character to have gotten a good amount of books, and I probably haven't heard of them all). Also, I've read most of the newer books from the last year or two through the library, so if it came out from about 2011-now I'm probably aware of it. The only thing off limits as suggestions would be USS Titan books Section 31 books Enterprise Relaunch (the books are still a bit pricey, and my knowledge of Enterprise is just ok, probably making the books a bit hard to get into) I've looked around for opinions, but I figured a thread would help me see how the books I've been looking at specifically are thought of by people currently, and there are so many books out there I've probably overlooked some good ones that deserve to be on my list of potential future purchases (I didn't even know about a good amount of the books on my list before browsing the Charting the Novelverse thread earlier today).
