I guess what I'm trying to find out has probably been asked before, so I'm working on putting it in a unique way. :) At what point in publishing time did the paperbacks diverge from the typical TNG, DS9, VOY and go into these offshoots that included everyone all at once? Is one of those offshoots better to start with than any of the others?
Destiny is a great storyline. I can't recommend it enough.
I played the Star Trek MMO. I would have hated to have Gene see that.
The first book series that wasn't linked with one particular TV series was Star Trek:Invasion!, in 1996, though that one at least kept the series separate between the books.
Then there was New Frontiers starting in '97, which was set on an entirely new starship with none of the main characters.
After New Frontiers they started branching out in to a lot of little independent series like that, and within a few years they'd pretty much stopped putting out the main numbered series at all.
Sometime in the early 2000s, they decided that all ST novel and comics were in continuity with each other (like Star Wars is), which was interesting in that none of the earlier ones worried about continuity at all so it didn't really work, and at that point, all the novels started being really intermixed with each other.
...I don't have a starting recommendation for you, I deal with it by endlessly re-reading the pre-2000s novels.
But thanks for the help all... I guess I'll have to just find a way to work my way through from another series somehow. Pick a random book and go forward from there.
