    Of your own Trek novels/stories, do you have a favorite? Which one? and what makes it your favorite?

    Yikes, that's like asking a parent to choose a favorite from among their children.

    If I had to single out one of my Star Trek novels as a favorite … I'd probably go with Star Trek Vanguard: Reap the Whirlwind. I think it has some of my best prose work, and a plot that's complex without being overly complicated, and good character developments.

    Having only done the three, and them all being different lengths, I can't really compare them fairly. So for a more general tone I'll say my favourite book of mine overall - that I'm happiest with - is probably the nonfiction Beautiful Monsters. Which isn't about Trek. Just to be an awkward bugger.

    Science in the news does say that most parents are lying when they say they love all their children the same. ;)

    ^That was a great read, but I find I love all of the Star Trek novels I read equally well. :p

    Sorry, what I meant to say was that I love all Star Trek products equally!

    I’m a reader more than a tv viewer so I can go with that.

    Although I have a Netflix account I have yet to watch Discovery but I have read and enjoyed David Mack’s novel.

    My favorite was probably a SNW story that didn't quite make the cut. It explored Kai Opaka's decision to sacrifice her own son for the greater good.
