    Kind of disappointing that there's nothing new, but I guess that's just an extra $4.95 I can put towards my holiday spending! ;)

    Five books is a little low compared to recent months, so maybe they'll end up throwing in an extra book or three before the sale goes live?

    Whoops! Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't notice that when I read the post. At least that explains why they're all repeats! :)

    Looks like only I, Q is new? I'm pretty sure the Vanguard series has been part of the sale before (although I'm not entirely sure about In Tempest's Wake).

    If there's anyone here who hasn't actually read Vanguard, and you're wondering if you should get it... yes. Yes you should.

    Hey all,

    @Avro Arrow
    I, Q has never been in a monthly deal.

    But, the Vanguard series has been on sale now 3 times, the last time before today was 2/2018 on a monthly deal at .99 cents.

    I think S & S is on to us now guys. They have changed the sales page, then added ebooks that weren’t on the monthly webpage.

    Lastly, now the web address is now changed. I liked having the month and year in the web address so you could easily know what ebooks were on sale when going all the way back to when the sales first started in March 2016.

    I’m with @BillJ bring on the Time to series already. It’s time.

    Also Nemecek’s TNG companion ebook has never been on sale or discounted.

    AN OPEN QUESTION though now with Coda does anyone know EXACTLY how many Star Trek ebooks you can buy now? 700? 800? What is the total count?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Just my thoughts.
    Happy Holidays to everyone on the forums!!!

    When I, Q, first came out, I was unfavorably and probably unfairly comparing it to Q-Squared. Now, I will see what positive elements I can find in it without reference to other works.

    I also picked up the Vanguard epilogue.

    Just I, Q for me, but glad to see anyone who missed out on Vanguard has a chance to snag it now, it's a great series.

    As far as total Trek book count, I am fairly sure it's over 800. Although I expect that number to grow because even if it's the end for the Litverse as we know it, we still are getting books for Picard and Discovery, and might get stuff for Lower Decks, Prodigy, and Strange New Worlds as well.

    It's nice to have a digital copy of I, Q. Because my physical hardcover copy is signed by John De Lancie.

    For those of you that missed it last time, a huge amount of content for the tabletop RPG Star Trek Adventures is again on sale over at Humble Bundle. It's all digital only but there's a coupon for half off a physical copy of the core rulebook if you want that. For those of us that got it the first time around, there are mostly minor additions. There are printable tiles you can use that I don't think were included in the original bundle, a pamphlet for Voyager based characters, and a print and play version of the starter set (the adventure in the starter set is the same that was in the last bundle).

    Looks like there's also a few things omitted in this new version. I didn't see anything for Tribble player characters which was in the last one. Could be a few other minor things as well.

    I'm gonna go ahead and get this updated version, although I really wish they had given us a couple new adventures instead of just some new print and play stuff and a single new character style. Shackleton or some of the Klingon stuff would have been great to see added in here. I will admit I am tempted to just get the remaining PDF stuff I am missing from Modipheus and just run a complete version of this game on my tablet.

    Una McCormack’s other Discovery novel, The Way to the Stars, is also included.

    Not a Simon and Schuster deal, obviously, but The Autobiography of James T. Kirk is $1.99 this month, at least at US Amazon.

    Q-Squared isn’t a first-time deal; it was previously one of the February 2021 deals.
