This first installment of "Convince Me" is a bit different from what I originally foresaw because I'm all but sure I want to read one of these books, I just need some direction....
It's confession time at Only the Best and I've got one big whopper of a confession to make. I've never read a Star Trek book. Never. Ever. That's not to say I haven't enjoyed the movies or the episodes of the TV show I've watched, but I don't think I can ever be accused of being a die-hard fan.
The Star Trek books seem to have their own unique subset of fans and I'm not even sure if the same people that read this blog and other blogs I read even read any. I hope to find at least a couple this way.
But I need some help. Who is a favorite author in the Star Trek universe? Where do I even start? Well, I at least have a starting point. I've received a total of 8 books as of today thanks to Pocket Books and I'd like to give at least one (if not more) a try. Please help me pick one.
Here they are:
That Which Divides by Dayton Ward
Star Trek: Destiny (Omnibus) by David Mack
Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Rise Like Lions by David Mack
Star Trek: Enterprise: The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm by Michael A. Martin (Wins longest title I've ever seen award)
Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes by Michael Schuster and Steve Mollman
Books I don't think I'll try since they're the final volumes in a series, but I'll post them anyway:
Star Trek: Vanguard: What Judgments Come (Vanguard #7) by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore
Star Trek: Vanguard: Storming Heaven (Vanguard #8) by David Mack
Whether you've read these or not, whether you know anything about the Star Trek universe or not, I'd love to hear your opinion. Which book looks good to you? Please comment and let me know.
