    TBH I don't really know. Looking at my library I have Vulcan Academy Murders, Uhura's Song, Doctors Orders and Final Reflection in my Kindle collection and they're all relatively early numbered books. It's all seems very random.

    Yeah, it's really inconsistent. It does mainly tend to be the old one that aren't available in the UK (probably for the same licensing reasons discussed recently), but not always. Then for example, Tooth and Claw is available, but at full price. Uhura's Song was the same last month too.

    Ah well, it's not like I don't have plenty of other books to read!

    Thank you - that worked! I'll probably still stick to direct Kindle purchases where I can, as the conversion was a little fiddly (took me several attempts to get it to show the cover on the Kindle, and it didn't get the page numbers over), but as a way of getting books I can't otherwise, it's very useful, thank you.

    Ok, I have a question and this was the best thread I could find to ask it (without resurrecting a long dead thread ;) ).

    I have a Kindle that I hadn't bought anything on since before my divorce last year, so it was still linked to what is now my ex-wife's account. I just started reading the Slings and Arrows series again and was ready to buy book 3 when I realized, crap, it's still linked to her account. So long story short I linked my Kindle to my own Amazon account now and bought book 3.

    The problem is I lost all the eBooks I had previously downloaded since they were bought with the account now in my ex-wife's name. Is there any way to get those back on my Kindle? Luckily I read everything there, but it'd still be nice to have access to those books I bought in years past (including 2 or 3 reference eBooks I bought unrelated to Star Trek).

    They definitely used to exist; when I first got my Kindle I drew up a list of titles they had on offer so I could keep my eye on it and all of those currently missing TOS/TNG books (which yes, were published here through Titan) were available. The Disinherited was the only one of those currently missing titles I purchased, and I can still access it to read at least. Just such a shame that a great chunk of those TOS & TNG Titan titles are unavailable.

    Register your Kindle back on your ex-wife's account. Then you can download all of your eBooks via the Amazon website.

    Under Accounts & Lists go to Content & Devices. Under Digital Content where is shows All Content select Books. On the right of the book listing select More Actions and then Download & transfer via USB. Select your Kindle and download.

    When you are done download everything, register your Kindle with your account.

    Thanks. Wish I had done that before switching, LOL. I didn't even realize I switched it over to be honest. I didn't think I 'confirmed' the changeover, but when I came home it was switched so I guess I must have confirmed it without realizing.

    I am in a good mood from watching the TNG Blu-rays, so I decided to give up waiting on a sale for the A Time To books. I do hope that they get their monthly sale one day for the other people in this thread who are wanting them.

    The price on A Time to Kill is $5.99, which is pretty good, and that can be read as a stand-alone thriller in the Star Trek galaxy if you so desire.

    Anyone have a way to see next month's bargains in advance? The old trick no longer works.

    Hey all, as of 5/1/2022:

    Here is what just came up on Amazon at 3:00 am PST the Cold Equations series and The Fall series on sale at .99 cents probably for May 2022 Trek Ebook Deals for the month. I will update if and when there is more.

    ST TNG Cold Equations Book 1 Persistence of Memory
    ST TNG Cold Equations Book 2 Silent Weapons
    ST TNG Cold Equations Book 3 The Body Electric

    ST the Fall book 1 Revelations and Dust
    ST the Fall book 2 The Crimson Shadow
    ST the Fall book 3 A Ceremony of Losses
    ST the Fall book 4 The Poisoned Chalice
    ST the Fall book 5 Peaceable Kingdoms

    Welcome to past Ladies and Gents welcome to:

    August 2016 for the Cold Equations series and December 2017 for the Fall series was the last time both of these series were on sale and when I purchased them. Your mileage may vary. But just a heads up you may or may not have these ebooks already. If you don’t here is a second chance to grab them,

    “WHAT THE HELL IS JIGAWATT!!!”

    @Daddy Todd the old “Trick” no longer works, because S&S and pocket no longer has monthly webpages to refer to, and only updates one single webpage month after month which makes this Trek deals thread a valuable resource for one and all past present and future.

    Rest in peace all the old S&S and Pocket Trek ebooks pages that referenced every Trek deal from March 2016 to January 2022. So much for PROGRESS. Corporate shills :( Every contributor and poster to this thread and site, IS the ULTIMATE in marketing, sales, and word of mouth all for free. Such a big mistake.

    Hope this helps everyone. Grab em if you don’t have em.
    All the best,
    -Koric

    I don't have any of these titles in my collection. Do we know when they'll be landing on Amazon so I can grab them?

    Also thanks for sharing this list of upcoming titles.

    :confused: Still showing as full price on the Amazon UK, including Google Play Books too. I wonder if we have to wait for S&S UK to switch over after the bank holiday weekend on Tuesday?

    Also, just looked on Amazon.com (the US site for myself) and they're showing as full price. I'm assuming they know I'm an visiting viewer and they've bumped the price back up.

    If I remember right the Amazon UK deals usually rollover on the first Tuesday of the month anyway.

    Unless they add some more, looks like nothing new for me. I guess I save a few dollars this month! :)

    Yup, same here. That being said, the Cold Equations storyline was great.
