    And I was thinking that it fit better on yours, as the 'successor' to The Trek Collective.

    Though I agree the more its out there the more it can get used, as it really is the most useful tool out there for understanding the modern continuity for a beginner.

    Heck, Pocket should put it, or something similar on the inside cover of their books!

    For what it's worth, I remain so glad that my creation has been useful, and fully intend to update it in the next few months. Life has been rather busy lately, and for the most recent iterations we discussed the changes together but 8of5 added them to the file, which I don't actually have. So I'll have to build it from scratch, but it's the kind of project I love, so I'll totally get there. When I do, I know who to send it to!

    I was thinking I might wait until we get some word about next year's books, so it can stand for a while again...

    Good idea. Hopefully we'll be updated on what's coming soon. It's been quite a while since any news, apart from Discovery.

    Wouldn't mind seeing WIP versions in addition to awaiting next year book announcements.

    For me, it's the most important source to get along with the LitVerse. Thanks again to you for creating and updating it! (and to 8of5 of course!)
    That's great news! :)
    good idea! In the comments below the chart are a few comments, maybe you could include them in the chart.

    Anyway, looking very much forward to an updated version!

    Does Crisis of Consciousness have any connections to the novelverse? I noticed it isn't on the reading guide site.
    I can't really think of anywhere to ask this, and I don't feel like starting a new thread so I'll just ask my other question here.
    Has Admiral Kennelly from Ensign Ro ever been connected to Section 31? I just rewatched the episode this morning, and his actions seemed like the kind of thing 31 would do.

    Ooh, I hope not. I'm not fond of the tendency to make Section 31 responsible for every single bad thing that anyone in the Federation ever does. Surely they can't be the only people in the entire Federation capable of doing anything disreputable. And as I discussed in Patterns of Interference, the only way a conspiracy could stay hidden effectively for a long time is to keep its activities to a minimum, to act only when it has to. The conceit of a conspiracy so huge that it's behind every bad thing ever, yet somehow able to remain hidden despite all that, is self-contradictory.

    Oh, I don't really want to put them behind every bad or questionable thing the Federation has ever done, but Kennelly's actions specifically seemed to me like something 31 would do.

    I must have never heard of anything connecting it, though off the top of my head I'm not sure which novel it is. I get alot of the recent standalone TOS novels confused. Plus I've never read it. If there is some link I would add it to the list.

    I wonder if there are any plans for more TOS or now that Discovery has premiered there will be more books involving that series? Just wondering I am a big TOS fan.

    I can’t imagine why they would stop now. Even the new Discovery novel is actually a Shinzou/ Pike-Enterprise crossover.

    I believe the TOS books are still the bestselling Trek books, so I doubt they will be going anywhere.

    Maybe they’ll be able to do more crossovers, like in the 24th series.

    I just read the book FOUL DEEDS with the Lenore Karidian character. Other than the main plot, which was completely generic and has probably been done in a dozen other Trek Books, I liked how Lenore's character was handled.

    I am frustrated at the shrinking selection at my local book store!
