Yes, I think Dillard did a few, i'm not sure which ones, I will try to find out.

What about the Shatner books especially the return then there is Sarek and Crossover. I also liked SCE and Vanguard. Pity that none of these have been adapted to the big or small screen.

Federation is the best Trek book I've read. It has been superseded by canon, but I think it painted a much better portrait of Zefram Cochrane.

"How Much For Just The Planet" complete hysteria from that book... I loved this book, and can only think of one other book that made me laugh so hard I damn near peed myself...and that was the movie tie-in novelization of "Enemy Mine".

I have several TNG books I got years ago when I was a teenager, and I've read them more than once. Vendetta and Dark Mirror were both good. I liked the superstring theories explained in Dark Mirror, and the doomsday machine in Vendetta and the descriptions of its interior was just... chilling.

I went years without reading any ST books, but recently I read Greater Than the Sum which was very good.
Although...
They seem a bit old for that.

My wife recently got me Book 2 of the Destiny series, not knowing it was a series. I haven't started that one yet, I'm waiting to get 1 and 3.

Favorite one i've read so far was To Reign In Hell. Loved how they explained everything between Space Seed and TWOK. Also enjoyed Children of Eden, if nothing else for the bar scene with Spock trying to be a pirate and for "The path of the 5th rank watch dragon is... THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD!"

Never got around to reading Probe, but I really want to.

Picard and Crusher are in the same shape in the "Destiny" series.
