Star Trek Expanded Universe and Upcoming Reviews

As mentioned in the Watching the Clock review, I mentioned I'm not exactly a big fan of the Star Trek Expanded Universe. It's not that I don't like what's written, it's just I've never really gotten into it.

I think part of the reason was, when I was really into Star Trek, the novels had almost zero inter-connectivity. Compared to the Star Wars Expanded Universe, where Luke Skywalker gets married to Mara Jade in one book and then goes on to have a bunch of adventures with Han and Leia's kids in a dozen others, it was markedly inferior.

So, by the time that I decided to get seriously into the Star Trek Expanded Universe (namely now), most of it had passed me on by. The exception, of course, was Star Trek: New Frontier which I have read the entirety of.

I read that, of course, because I'm a huge fan of Peter David and think it's the absolute bees knees. I'll eventually get around to re-reading it and reviewing it on my blog, but in the meantime I'm going to try and familiarize myself with other books in the vast Star Trek Expanded Universe.

I hope you'll follow me as I do so.

So here's my current schedule for reviews:

10/13/2011    Star Trek Titan: Taking Wing
10/15/2011    Star Trek Titan: The Red King
10/16/2011    Star Trek Titan: Orion's Hounds
10/18/2011    Ex-Patriots (Non-Star Trek)
10/18/2011    Star Trek Titan: Sword of Damocles
10/20/2011    Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many
10/20/2011    The Vampire Apocalypse Series
10/21/2011    Memories of the Future part 1 (nonfiction)
10/23/2011    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Millennium: The Fall of Terok Nor

Reviews, of course, are subject to change on my insane whims.

Hopefully, that will bring me up to the Star Trek: Destiny series.
