    I was just wondering if they are planing any more novels featuring enterprise f?

    More? I know there was one novel set in the STO universe (The Needs Of The Many) but that one didn't feature the E-F right?

    As mentioned in another thread, there are now two magazine stories set in this timeline in "Star Trek Magazine".

    But a short story in a magazine is not a novel.

    Awww gee. I know that, but I thought the OP might like to know.

    Maybe they'll do eight or so of these magazine stories and put them out as a MMPB one day?

    Therin, you've got to stop being so defensive. I was critiquing the thread title, not your response to it.

    Right. Data was captain of the Enterprise-E at the time he was interviewed by Jake (somewhere between 2387 and 2309, I think)

    I'd like that.

    The magazine stories, are, what, a few pages long? Probably just a couple thousand words, tops. It would take several dozen of those to make a novel-length compilation.

    Huh?

    How is the thread title in need of critiquing? The OP was asking about novels.

    Which is why I didn't dare use the term "novel" length, or even say "short story". I said MMPB, which can be extremely thin if necessary.

    That's just it, I don't think he was. He asked if there would be more "novels" with the Enterprise-F. The only E-F fiction that exists are the two short stories in Star Trek Magazine, so it seems that he must've meant that and used the word "novel" inappropriately (as laypeople sometimes do).

    Re: star trek online novela series:

    Okay I probably should've asked if there will be a e book dealing the enterprise f?

    I wouldn't count on it. The STO universe is already completely different from the universe established in the novels. And the events that shaped the 25th century STO universe are already different then the TrekLit universe, with the death of Janeway and the destruction of the Borg.

    And I doubt that, at the moment, Pocket would invest in a novel not set in the current 24th century setting, unless it's TOS/ENT.

    The next magazine has another short story from the same author.

    I tried Memory Beta yesterday but, so far, no one has uploaded the new, current title. Anyone?

    The previous one is discussed in this thread:
