Star Trek Lists 5 Books Fans Should Read And Would Make A Great Series

Star Trek has book recommendations so good it could be a new series.

Star Trek wants fans to check out a list of five books ranging from the original series to Discovery. They’re not canon books, but they’re considered, at least by Trek.com, to be some of the best in the franchise’s literary history.

The books are some of the best in Trek history, but that doesn’t mean the ones that aren’t listed aren’t good and shouldn’t be sought out. So what were the books listed by Trek?

The five novels fans should read, according to Trek.com, are below;

  • Star Trek: Discovery: Dead Endless – Dave Galanter, 2019
  • Star Trek: Coda: Book III – Oblivion’s Gate – David Mack, 2021
  • Star Trek: Federation – Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, 1994
  • Star Trek: New Frontier: House of Cards – Peter David, 1997
  • Star Trek: The Eugenics Wars: Book One – Greg Cox, 2001

A series based on the Eugenics Wars would be amazing

The Eugenics Wars are among Trek’s most prominent and under-visited concepts, at least on TV and streaming services. We know them and we know that Khan Noonien Singh was a major player in these conflicts.

Exploring these events and adding more story to the franchise would be the way to go, especially if we could come to understand Khan and the rest of the Noonien Singhs even more.

What could be done, and would be really interesting, is if Trek saw the Eugenics Wars through a flashback through the scope of the Ceti Alpha V series that Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer introduced.

It seems unlikely that Meyer’s Ceti Alpha series will ever see the light of day, let alone that Paramount execs try to make a series about a eugenics-based wary, but if the two thoughts ever collide, this could be one hell of a series.
