    I really Jack McDevitt's sci fi novels he has 2 different series I really like to read Priscilla Hutchinson is a Starship Captain and I really the series of books about her adventures.And a Space Archeologists that solves new and ancient space mysteries.The author is a big Star Trek fan and his stories show his love of star trek in his books.

    I have read some of McDevitts' work and I thought it was really good. I didn't know that he was a fan of Star Trek. Now I'm going to have to see about reading some more. Thank you for sharing this.

    I loved the Murderbot Diaries novellas. I only wish they were longer. Wells is writes great dialogue! The series seems to be wrapped up with the fourth one. I can hope for more, can't I?

    Dunno if anyone has mentioned the Space Captain Smith books...they are comedy SF (think Red Dwarf) and run the absolute gamut of references, but I think it’s either the fourth or fifth one that is very heavy on the Trek, being very much a Trek ‘peace conference’ episode.

    They are all easygoing reads (like most treklit. That’s not an insult.) and are very much worth the time and money. They are deeply British in places, but not impenetrably so.
