I just went back and started reading the original books in the order they were released starting with the old Bantam books. "Spock Must Die!" was the first book released.

It has been a long time since I picked these up. To answer the question, I remember enjoying "The Return" by William Shatner. "Yesterday's Son" by A.C. Crispin and "The Kobayashi Maru" from Julia Ecklar.

Though it is not canon, I really did enjoy reading "Strangers From The Sky". I think it would make a decent TV mini series, if they were ever so inclined to do one. I thought it was better than the story of the movie "First Contact".

I remember reading that one and two other Star Trek 'supernovels' or whatever they were called back in the eighties. The other ones were Enterprise and (I think) The Final Frontier. Strangers I remember best, with the Vulcans. And Enterprise was about Kirk's father George and Jim Kirk as a child. Final Frontier I don't really remember.

It was a fantastic idea that was based on the Space Flight Chronology Book that told the tale of when the vulcans made first contact with Earth. She writes the characters well but the story was slow just like her other book "Probe".

But I enjoyed Strangers from the Sky so much even though it took a while to read it was one the stories I remember the most.


Personally...The New Frontier books have all been high up on the list of stories but there have been some absolutely stellar books from VOYAGER and TNG and TOS.
