Require a TNG book recommendation!

9 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm sitting here in the mood to try out some Trek literature, and am looking for a recommendation, if you'd be so kind.

Actually, I'm looking for THE book recommendation!

TNG based. A one-off story, no parts one, two or three. Something with heart, and will take me back to those TNG days. :)

 

If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it muchly!

As for standalone TNG novels, I'd recommend a 90s novel by Peter David. "Vendetta", "Q-in-Law", "Imzadi", "Q Squared" are all fine, really.

:) Cheers Sim; I should have said. I have quite a 90s collection, including these. 

In my head, I had something 'more recent'. Even perhaps post Nemesis?

Well there are a couple of decent post-NEM TNG novels, but none of them is standalone. They are all interconnected and telling an ongoing frame story.

The cornerstone of the post-NEM novelverse is the "Destiny" trilogy which is pretty good IMO, but alas it's 3 books and not purely TNG either, but a TNG/DS9/Titan crossover plus characters from ENT and VOY.

Another amazing trilogy is "Cold Equations", wich is purely TNG, but yes, three books. But IMO it's great, especially when you like Data and when you don't mind the resurrection of characters that are supposed to be dead according to canon. :)

Destiny, I'd heard a lot about. I could possibly try the first one and see how we go :)

You might also try "Indistinguishable from Magic," which is a one-off story that is post-Nemesis, but it also features characters from other franchises.

Although not a classic like the books that Sim mentioned, but I enjoyed Takedown by John Jackson Miller because I thought it was a smart climax to the book.

It's a stand-alone, although there will be the occasional reference to the wider novel-verse. It is the Enterprise, but a few characters are moved around.

Thanks all for the suggestions! But this ^ nabbed my attention. I'm going to give it a tribble-n-try. :)
