I have to say Bloodthirst is my top favorite. Then Yesterdays Son and the followup All our Yesterdays about Zar, Spock and Zarabeths son. Then Strangers From the Sky, a book that is strangely similar to Carbon Creek from Enterprise.

My favourite Star Trek books are the New Frontier books and the one of those I enjoyed the most was Double or Nothing (Double Helix 5). Seeing Riker trying to lead that crew was priceless!

As for screen-related tie-ins my favourite is the novelisation of The Wrath of Kahn by Vonda McIntyre. It adds another diminsion and I love the extra stuff with the scientists you barely see in the film. I even named my computer after Delwin March. (Yes, I'm that big a nerd).

I also rather enjoyed Ice Trap. Lots of Uhura and Chechov. What can I say. My trinity is Chechov, Sulu and Uhura.

Just finished reading Bloodthirst yesterday - it was excellent! Especially the insight into the McCoy-Chapel-Spock triangle and further exploration into diversity and humanity. Did Dillard do any other ones?

I did not read many Star Trek books.

I only remember Home is the Hunter and Dominion War....

There may have been others. Not really counting photo novels.

Also, not Star Trek, Tekwar.

BLOODTHIRST has always been my favorite book. Crisis on Centarus is another one. We get to meet McCoys daughter, Joanna in that one. I am currently reading the Destiny trilliogy, which I am loving. I also loved the 2 book arc Yesterdays Son, a sequel to All Our Yesterdays, and the second book, I think the name is A Time for Yesterday, in those books we meet Zar, Spocks son.

I kinda stopped reading the books quite some time ago but my favourite Star Trek book of the ones I did read are -

1 - Imzadi
2 - Vendetta
3 - Contamination
4 - The Great Starship Race
5 - (I can't recall the title now but it was Peter David's Q novel that spanned TOS to TNG).

You're thinking of the novel, Q-Squared.

My fav's are "Black Fire" and "Best Destiny", but truth be told, I enjoy them all.

Thanks!

Yes, that was it - I was going to write that but then thought I was getting it mixed up with 'Time Squared' the TNG episode.

One of my Favorites was Peter David's Q-Law.
Laxwana Troi is given powers by Q and Laxwana goes on a rampage when Q rejects her advances... It was...epic.... It was movie worthy.

I loved the "New Frontier" Series with Calhoun and the adventures in Thallonian Space.
