The Proper Reading Order for the Star Trek Novels in a Handy Flowchart

Have you been wanting to dive into the world of Star Trek novels, but aren't sure where to start? Check out the Almighty Star Trek Lit-verse Reading Order Flowchart, which lays out which books should come earliest on your reading list.

Created by TrekBBS members Thrawn and 8of5, this flowchart doesn't suggest one single starting point for getting into the Star Trek books, but instead outlines which books come before which in terms of the modern series' continuity. So you can reach for characters from the various TV shows, read the crossover novels, and immerse yourself in the tales of the Klingon Empire with minimal confusion.

Go see the chart in all of its glory at the Trek Collective, where 8of5 has listed some good books with which to begin your Star Trek reading journey, depending on which quadrant of the galaxy you're most interested in exploring.
