    Haven't read Star Trek novel in a LONG time.

    I've always considered them non-canon so I won't be distracted by those material when I'm in a discussion group full of Trekkies.

    Of all the Trek novels I have read in the past, The Final Reflection by John Ford is my favorite.

    Currently reading Declassified which seems a collection of short stories about the Vanguard station, the first short story takes place before the events of the first novel in the series.

    Still reading Declassified. Currently on the third short story, this one jumps back and forth between 2 events 9 years apart.

    Another title came out today via Barnes & Noble called: Star Trek: Vanguard: What Judgments Come. Going to add that to my collection soon.
