Longest journey commences: Every Star Trek ever. ( )

Pilot episode for the TV show. I read it after I had been watching for awhile, and so probably mentally added to the characters more than was there, but I enjoyed reliving the episode. ( )

A novelization of the first episode of "Next Generation" by famed Trek writer David Gerrold. Most of the characters ae very unformed at this point, but Gerrodl delivers with what he has. ( )

Book description
CAPTAIN'S LOG, STARDATE 41254.7

The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D is en route to Cygnus IV - the edge of the known galaxy. There we will rendezvous with the ship's new first office and other command personnel, and proceed with our mission: discover the truth about FarPoint Station, a starbase facility built by the inhabitants of Cygnus IV, a starbase of unparalleled size and complexity ... and infinite mystery.

And the success or failure of this, our first mission together, may well determine the course of human exploration across the galaxy for centuries to come.
