    Hey mates,
    I just wanted to ask you how many Star Trek novels you have.
    Do you prefer the TOS series or TNG? What about Deep Space Nine or The New Frontier?
    I really love the TOS and the New Frontier with Captain Calhoun from the USS Excalibur.


    I am really looking forward to your answers.

    Sincerely yours,
    Emmy

    I prefer TNG(tv, movies or books), to me, TNG _is_ Star Trek, but DS9 is a close second.

    I have (looks behind him at his bookshelves) - all of the numbered TNG books and about two dozen others. Plus maybe another 20 of various series, so call it about a hundred. How about yourself?

    Have not yet started on New Frontier (it's on my list), though Captain Calhoun was a major character in one of the TNG books and I thought it was a bit too... old school 007-ish... (actually, I feel the same about Kirk, now that I think about it). It was amusing, but didn't feel very Trek to me... probably because of my whole TNG focus, I guess. Picard all the way for me Smile

    I have every Star Trek post-Nemesis novel up until the beginning of the second part of the Typhon Pact series, so about 15-20 trek novels? I have all but the last 3 Voyager Relaunch novels as well.

    I've got quite a few novels which my dad bought. When he passed I made sure to take them all so they weren't thrown out.

    I've also got about 99% of the fact files that were released along with the TNG tech manual

    I’ve read a few of the novels, mostly the Titan series and a few VOY ones. I’ve lost most of them over the years, but I still have Children of the Storm sitting on my bookshelf

    I own two "books/novels", they're actually a saga/series. the first one really left an impression on me, so when I could find them and afford to buy them, I did.

    Wolfskin and Foxmask by Juliet Marillier.


    I want to buy more actual books though, I read a lot, but surprisingly own very few actual books!

    I prefer to go with a series than a one-off. With that said, I have read the "A Time to..." series (TNG), the Titan series (TNG), and Vanguard (ToS).

    Of those, I *really* liked the "A Time to..." series. It not only grew the main TNG-characters, but many minor characters as well. Not to mention, they had a good mix of techno-babble with solid character growth/story.

    Titan... was ok. It was interesting in that the characters were totally new, and diverse. But that was also the part that made it hard to relate or get to know the characters well. Maybe it was due to the crew being all very alien... and that there were so many. To this day, I can't remember the Chief Medical Officer's name, except that he was a cool big dinosaur-ish guy. hahaha.

    Vanguard... was pretty true sci-fi as far as the main issue/plot. But more than that, I really got into the main characters. From the Starfleet characters of Vanguard Station (Reyes, T'Prynn, Desai) to the Orion Syndicate and underworld with Ganz and Quinn. Great stuff.

    these days I get the e-book versions and I have not owned a physical book since about 2005. (still have them in a box somewhere) I have read every single star trek book or short story compilation that's available since I got my first kindle.but my favourite series has to be Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of engineers, Star Trek: Vanguard and Star Trek: Department of Temporal Investigations.

    Just can't get enough of them and I find myself re-reading the entire line of books over and over when time permits Smile

    100% agree. I love the feel of holding a book instead of a tablet.

    I'm one of those people who prefer holding a physical book over an electronic version. Plus I just like the look of full bookshelves Smile
    I agree with you. I love to hold a good old book in my hand Wink
