Tons of recommendations for TOS novels. I haven't read very many novels from other Trek series because TOS is my favorite. I'll just list some of the TOS novels I enjoyed the most, in no particular order:

- The Wounded Sky
- Ice Trap
- Spock's World
- Sarek
- Probe
- The Lost Years
- A Flag Full of Stars
- The Pandora Principle
- Black Fire
- The Tears of the Singers
- The Three-Minute Universe
- Doctor's Orders
- Best Destiny
- Battlestations!
- Shadows on the Sun
- Collision Course
- Prime Directive
- The Great Starship Race

There are others I've enjoyed, but these are the ones I remember off the top of my head.

Imzadi is probably my personal favourite, along with Vendetta and Q-Squared (which did a really good job of tying together a lot of Trek history into a very good story). They're probably out of print now but if were able to find copies on ebay or the like, I'd recommend them.

The I.K.S Gorkon books are good. They have a lot of Klingons(and some other characters) from the TV show.

'The Rift' by Peter David is also great - I'm of the opinion he's one of the best Trek novelists so his work tends to feature a lot!

I have read only very few novels, some as teenager which I already have forgotten; I only remember the Reeves-Stevense's "Prime Directive", but it is nothing new that their work is good and that this is a fine novel.
If anyone is interested in reading ENT novels, I suggest Dave Stern.

I have read dozens of TOS novels and a few Voy/TNG ones. I think my favorite novel of all would be Bloodthirst, I have read it 3 times. Also Yesterday's Son and A Time for Yesterday, which are sequels to All Our Yesterdays, the 78th episode of TOS. They have Zarabeth and her son Zar in them, Spock discovers he left a son back on the iceage planet.

It's about time they added a space for the books! WTG, admin!
