Star Trek has some book recommendations so good, that one could be a new series.
Star Trek wants fans to check out a list of five books that stretch from the original series all the way to Discovery. These are non-canon books but they’re considered, at least by Trek.com, some of the best in the franchise’s literary history.
The books are some of the best in Trek’s history but that doesn’t mean those not listed aren’t good and shouldn’t be sought after. So what were the books Trek listed?
The five novels fans should read, according to Trek.com, are below;
"Star Trek: Discovery: Dead Endless – Dave Galanter, 2019Star Trek: Coda: Book III – Oblivion’s Gate – David Mack, 2021Star Trek: Federation – Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, 1994Star Trek: New Frontier: House of Cards – Peter David, 1997Star Trek: The Eugenics Wars: Book One – Greg Cox, 2001"
A series based on the Eugenics Wars would be amazing
The Eugenics Wars are among the most important and least visited concepts in Trek, at least on television and streaming services. We know of them, and we know that Khan Noonien Singh was a major player in those conflicts.
Exploring those events and adding more history to the franchise would be the way to go, especially if we got to understand Khan and the rest of the Noonien Singhs even more.
What could be done, and would be really interesting, is if Trek viewed the Eugenics Wars through a flashback through the scope of the Ceti Alpha V series that Wrath of Khan director, Nicholas Meyer has been pitching.
It seems unlikely Meyer’s Ceti Alpha series will ever see the light of day, and even less likely that the Paramount execs try to make a series about a wary based on eugenics but should the two thoughts ever co-mingle, it could be one hell of a series.
