I have been a fan of TOS and TNG since i was a kid and TNG was on the air. I have now discovered the extent of the novel series and plan to start reading much of the older ones, probably in order of publication starting with the motion picture. Without going back and watching the tv series, will i miss out on a lot? Or are major tv storylines covered in the novels. Eventually i will get into the other series such as DS9 and Voyager, but have lots of time prior to that.
