I've got over 300 Star Trek novels ranging all the way from TOS Series books like Deep Domain and Killing Time to the new ones like the Titan series. I've read a smattering of various ones. Not currently reading any at the moment, but I read the DS9 Novel The Long Night and it was pretty good.

Hi to all on the boards, long time lurker - first time poster.

Just finished TNG: The Romulan Prize - very much enjoyed the story. Started TNG: Ghost Ship yesterday - as it was AFAIK, the first TNG novel to be written, that is not based on an episode of the show - it is interesting to see how the author handles the characters with very little of their back stories to work with. For Example, Deanna is constantly calling Riker, "Bill"...... Then it will be on to a couple of other early TNG novels.

I am reading Doctor's orders, my first Trek book :)

Is anyone reading the new starfleet academy series? If so is it any good?
Also has anyone read TOS starfleet academy series? Same question.

I am about 3/4 of the way through "That Which Divides" and am enjoying it. Interesting story line.

[I have a question about the Vanguard series. I have not read "Declassified" and was wondering if it was necessary to read it before reading the last books of the series. I know it is a collection of short stories but do they have any bearing on the ending of the series?

Where in the whole Star Trek series does that newest movie come in? Like at the beginning, was it a prologue? I just watched it last night for the first time on TV and now I'm curious. If i don't get an answer I'll just Google it though.

I am curious what by which medium are you reading your ST novel? Is there a satisfaction difference between digital vs. print? I am not currently reading a novel but picked up the latest issue of the Star Trek Magazine. Due to the increased demand of school reading, during the condensed spring semester, a novel is almost too much work. I would rather look at pretty pictures and gloss over articles for pure entertainment value, but I could not bring myself to purchase a digital version of the magazine. I wanted the enjoyment of not only visual sensation but a textural, glossy page, sensation as I flipped through the pages. As a collector I can see why I would want physical print and as a collector I found out more about collector's special edition covers, which I will likely get the next time I go to get another issue. But a novel, especially traveling, I think would be just as satisfying in a digital context versus print in a shear reading context and not for collecting purposes.

She Hulk I agree with you wholeheartedly. I have over 190 ST books but lately have shifted to a digital reader for exactly the reasons you suggest. It is so easy just to have the reader with me, which takes up less space and weighs little, plus I can have as many books as I want at any time on my device.
