Update Log


September 2017

Added Starfleet: Year One to the General Star Trek reading list.  Not sure if I never noticed the references to it in several books before, or more likely for some reason decided to not include it, but upon reflection, realized it should be listed regardless of its' later contradiction.

September 2017

This month I added the October releases (DS9: Gamma- Original Sin, DIS: Desperate Hours, The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard, Boldly Go: IDIC, Part 1, Discovery #1, TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 5, and New Visions: What Pain It is to Drown) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have on the Star Wars Chronology yet.

I hope everyone enjoys Discovery, and I hope I do too!

August 2017

Added four stories to the Litverse web of links.  TOS: Mind Meld's Teska is featured in Genesis Wave, Book 2.  And I added the three stories in the Unlimited #8 comic due to the third story referencing Unlimited #1, which was already referenced in the Litverse.

August 2017

This month I added the September releases (Enterprise: Rise of the Federation- Patterns of Interference, TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 4, and Whom God Destroys, Part 2 to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars shorts, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have on the Star Wars Chronology yet.

Next month will mark a whole new era in the history of Trek. Discovery will air, Discovery tie ins will begin to be published, and hopefully by then Pocket will have finalized a new contract to publish tie ins to the Kelvin Timeline, allowing Treklit to proceed into the year 2387 and beyond. 


July 2017

This month I added the August releases (Boldly Go, Issue 11, and New Visions: All the Ages Frozen) to their appropriate lists, timeline, and the story count pages.  So no new novel from Pocket again this month.  I also added the Star Wars shorts and comics released recently that I didn't have on the Star Wars Chronology yet.

June 2017

Extrocomp updated his Treklit lists.

June 2017

Added the new wiki for Star Trek books and comics, Memory Omega to the Trek Lit Links page.  No info from video games or card games will clutter up this new wiki.  Just the books and comics.  It would be great to get more folks over there to help build it and make it a great resource for the TrekLit community.

June 2017

This month I added the July releases (DS9: Enigma Tales, Boldly Go, Issue 10, TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 3, and Waypoint #6) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology, and rearranged the placement of a few comic issues that I have read recently.

For the few of you who are interested enough in this website and subject matter to go to the trouble of reading this update log, I want to give you a bit of fun news.  I was invited last month to join the group known as the Star Trek Timeliners who put together the Star Trek novel timeline published three times by Pocket Books, most recently in the back of Voyages of the Imagination.  I'm really honored to be involved with them, and doubly honored that they sought me out. 

I have to say that having now been privy to the behind the scenes work that went on in accomplishing the publication of the timeline, that the original members of the group did some tremendously detailed and impressive work over many years to create a resource so many of us have greatly enjoyed.

That's all I will say about that for now.  Perhaps there will be more to talk about in the future.

May 2017

Updated some pictures of my newly painted Star Trek models.  Also added the New Visions short comic I Sing of Arms and Heroes to the story count pages.  I wasn't aware of it until I recently read the comic collection.  Also moved the C3P0 comic's position on the Star Wars page to a better placement.

May 2017

This month I added the June releases (TNG: Hearts and Minds, DTI: Shields of the Gods, Boldly Go, Issue 9, New Visions: Time Out of Joint, TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 0, and TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 2) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars episodes, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology, and rearranged the placement of a few comic issues that I have read recently.

April 2017

This month I added the May releases (Murder at Babel, Part 2, Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds, Issue 6, Waypoint, Issue 5, and TNG: Mirror Broken, Part 1) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars episodes, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

April 2017

Rearranged a few entries on the 5YM timeline, and their corresponding placements in the TOS Reading List.

March 2017

Rearranged a few entries in the Kelvin Timeline Reading List after I understood their order a bit better.

March 2017

Added a few new stories I found links to: TOS: The Autobiography of James T. Kirk, TOS: A Better Man, and both stories from Star Trek Unlimited #1.

March 2017

This month I added the April releases (Section 31: Control, Murder at Babel, Part 1, Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds, Issue 5, and New Visions: The Traveler) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars episodes, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

February 2017

Added the stories now connected by The Face of the Unknown (Troublesome Minds and A Choice of Catastrophes) to the TOS Reading List and the 5YM timeline.

February 2017

This month I added the March releases (DS9: The Long Mirage, Boldly Go, Issue 6, Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds, Issue 4, Waypoint, Issue 4, and the Deviations one-shot to their appropriate list, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars episodes, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

February 2017

Updated Extrocomp's Treklit names lists.

January 2017

Added the four short comic stories from the Enterprise Logs collections from Gold Key to the story count pages.  Not sure why I didn't include those in the count before.  Also rearranged the info on the UK Comics page and updated the story count accordingly. 

Interestingly if you add the episodes and films, and allow the count to double up on stories in multiple formats (like I have all along with films, their novelizations, and their comic adaptations) then the current total number of Star Trek stories across all media is 3002.  The 3000th Star Trek story released will be New Visions: Sam on February 1st.

Correction: I should note that I forgot this doesn't count audio-only productions, which I've always left out of the prose and comics story count.  That would put the current numbering up to 3013.  And that would make Prey: The Hall of Heroes the 3000th story ever released.

January 2017

This month I added the February releases (TNG: Headlong Flight, New Visions: Sam, Boldly Go, Issue 5, Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds, Issue 3) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added the Star Wars episodes, books, and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

January 2017

Added a page about my Scale Star Trek Model Collection.

December 2016

After having examined them more closely, I changed a few of the details on when exactly each chapter of Rough Beasts of Empire, Plagues of Night, and Raise the Dawn take place on the Post Nemesis Chapter by Chapter page.

December 2016

This month I added the January releases (TOS: The Face of the Unknown, Boldly Go, Issue 4, Waypoint, Issue 3, Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds, Issue 2, and Star Trek Online: An Honorable Frontier) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars episodes, books, comics, and FILM released this month to the Star Wars Chronology.

December 2016

Extrocomp updated his Treklit lists again.

November 2016


Updated Extrocomp's Treklit Lists.  Somehow I missed adding Strange New Worlds 2016 to all my Story Count lists, and the Pocket Novel List.  Added a few more recent "jumping on points" to the various Reading Lists.

November 2016

Updated the names of the two short comics in Waypoint #2.  Added the Strange New Worlds 2016 story "The Last Refuge" to the Voyager Reading List.  Added DC Comics Annual #1 (All Those Years Ago) to the TOS Reading List.  I didn't realize until I had read it this week that it had a framing story that connected it to the other DC comics of the era.  Rearranged a few Star Wars comics into chronological order now that I have read them.

November 2016

This month I added the December releases (Prey: The Hall of Heroes, New Visions: The Hidden Face, Green Lantern Vol 2. #1, and Boldly Go, Issue Three) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

I also changed the Plagues of Night/ Raise the Dawn duology to light blue in the TNG list now that I have read them and see the limited amount of TNG in the stories themselves.  I had the impression originally that they were more of a DS9/TNG team up then they turned out to be.  This changed the numbering of the later TNG Relaunch novels.


November 2016

Added the complete quartet of Extrocomp's "unnamed" lists: Characters, Ships, Species, and Planets.


October 2016

Stumbled upon a whole new string of references that connect several new books.  DS9: Saratoga, TNG: Doomsday World, TNG: A Call to Darkness, TNG: Fortune's Light, TNG: Starfleet Academy- Mystery of the Missing Crew, and TNG: Starfleet Academy- Secret of the Lizard People are all connected by various references to other Michael Jan Friedman story elements.

Also added Extrocomp's compliation of all the Treklit Species Names for Unnamed Canon Species.

October 2016

Moved Final Frontier to after Operation: Annihilate in all the timelines and reading lists.  It fits better here story-wise and this lets the events align with the comic Bloodline as well.  Extrocomp added a few names to the Treklit First and Last Names of Canon Characters list.

October 2016

Fixed an error on the 5YM timeline where I had Arena in the wrong place. 

October 2016

Extrocomp added a few names to the Treklit First and Last Names of Canon Characters list, and I changed the final two Peter Pan comics to comic stories in the story count now that I've read them and notice that they aren't self contained issues.

October 2016

Added the Unnamed Character Names project which was completed by several users on the TrekBBS and is posted here on their behalf.

October 2016

This month I added the November releases (Prey: The Jackal's Trick, Waypoint, Issue Two, and Boldly Go, Issue Two) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

October 2016

Made a few tweaks to the formatting of the Complete Pocket Books Novel list with regard to the numbering of miniseries.  I also noticed that I was missing the first Day of Honor book on that list.

October 2016

Made a slight adjustment to the 5YM timeline in response to a discussion on the TrekBBS about there being two weeks before Journey to Babel which can't have any other adventures in them.  That forced the previous few months to scrunch up their adventures a bit.


September 2016

I added the newest Star Trek Online short story, Time of the Scotsman.  Moved Vulcan's Glory on the TOS Reading List to before Early Voyages instead of after.  Not sure how I messed that up.  I also changed the New Visions: The Cage story in the story count pages to a "Photostory Adaptation" instead of a 'Comic Adaptation'.

September 2016

Did a slight reformatting of the Simple Post-Nemesis Reading List.  Added the TOS books and comics which I recently placed in the timeline to the TOS Reading List.  Also rearranged a few stories on that list to reflect the changes I made to the timeline recently.  And changed the Byrne-verse entries to purple from orange to fit better with the someday upcoming Complete Lit-verse Reading List.

September 2016

This month I added the October releases (Prey: Hell's Heart, and Boldly Go, Issue One) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology, and made a few tweaks to the formatting and ordering of a few titles.

September 2016

Updated the 5 Year Mission timeline quite a bit.  Added in the Legacies trilogy and several New Visions comics, and rearranged things accordingly.  Also noticed that I had some problems in the between TOS and TAS period that had somehow crept in over the years, and I fixed that era.  to see a discussion of what all exactly I changed see the TrekBBS thread 'A Lit-verse Based TOS Chronology.'

August 2016

Added the short story "The Lights in the Sky" from SNW1.  Found out it was referenced in Excelsior: Forged in Fire.  I rearranged a few comics on the Star Wars Chronology now that I've read them and see where they go.  I also moved "Countdown to Darkness" to before "I, Enterprise" in the KT timeline since there is a reference to CTD in I,E.  I separated DTI from "Other" in the story count pages since it has four separate stories now.  I changed the references from "bright blue" to "dark blue" in the reading list intros to be more descriptive and less confusing.  And lastly I added orange to show the seperate Byrne-verse continutiy on the TOS reading page.

August 2016

This month I added the September releases (The Original Series: Legacies- Purgatory's Key, Department of Temporal Investigations: Time Lock, Waypoint #1, New Visions: Swarm, and New Visions: More of the Serpent Than the Dove) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

July 2016

Since I've been reading threw the old Gold Key comics I've noticed that almost all of them are actually broken up into parts 1 and 2, with several of them even having seperate subtitles for each story.  So I broke those stories up in the story count pages and that added 56 stories to the total story count.  This brings the total up to 2221.

Also changed the title of the final issues of Star Trek Ongoing to Connections instead of the original title, Altered Encounters.

July 2016

This month I added the August releases (The Original Series: Legacies- Captain to Captain, and Star Trek Ongoing: Altered Encounters, Part 2) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

Added The Galactic Whirlpool to the TOS Reading List and the Five Year Mission Timeline.  It is now the first Bantam novel connected in some way to the Lit-verse.

Also changed all the references to Abrams-Trek to Kelvin Timeline and added the last few Star Trek Online original short stories to all their lists. 

June 2016


This month I added the July releases (The Original Series: Legacies- Captain to Captain, Deep Space Nine: Rules of Accusation, Star Trek Ongoing: Altered Encounters, Part 1, and New Visions: The Cage) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.


June 2016

Added Titan: Sight Unseen to the Simple Post-Nemesis Reading List which I somehow missed when it came out.  I worked on the timeline of The Fall chapters in the Post-Nemesis Month-By-Month timeline.  Added TNG: Behind Enemy Lines and TNG: Tunnel Through the Stars to the TNG Reading List.  Also added the new Star Wars short story to it's reading list, and rearranged some Star Wars comics after having read several more this month.

May 2016

This month I added the June releases (Deep Space Nine: Force and Motion, and Star Trek Ongoing: Legacy of Spock, Part 4) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

April 2016

Added upcoming ebook DTI: Time Lock to the post Nemesis timeline and reading list.  Added the page Titan Books TOS to the Story Count for The Autobiography of James T. Kirk.  Renamed the "Post-Nemesis: Year By Year" page to "Post-Nemesis: Month by Month" to line up with the "Five Year Mission: Month by Month" page.

April 2016

This month I added the May releases (The Original Series: Elusive Salvation, Star Trek Ongoing: Legacy of Spock, Part 3, and Manifest Destiny #3 & #4) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology, and did some rearranging based on the comics I've read lately.

March 2016

Rearranged the 5YM timeline from April 2266 to April 2267.  Just a few changes were made due to finally abandoning trying to reconcile the different dates surrounding The Vulcan Academy Murders and The IDIC Epidemic.  Basically now I'm just plucking these down where VotI places them and I'm ignoring any timeline reference to them or from them.

March 2016

Added The Latter Fire to the Original Series Reading List and the 5YM timeline.  Moved The Entropy Effect on the 5YM timeline to account for the fact that Chekov shouldn't be present during the run of TAS.  This caused some rearranging during the period of TAS.

March 2016

This month I added the April releases (Enterprise: Rise of the Federation- Live By the Code, Star Trek Ongoing: Legacy of Spock, Part 2, Starfleet Academy #5, and Manifest Destiny #1 & #2) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

February 2016

This month I added the March releases (The Original Series: The Latter Fire, Star Trek Ongoing: Legacy of Spock, Part 1, and Starfleet Academy #4) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

Also tweaked the timeline entries for DS9: Ascendance and VOY: A Pocket Full of Lies.
 
January 2016

Tweaked the story count page to double check that I can actually do simple addition (Results: I can't.)  Everything checks out now.

January 2016

Rearranged a few stories on the TOS page to reflect my new understanding of the timeline of the TFF-TUC era of stories.

Also updated the placement of items on the Post-Nemesis Year-By-Year page, specifically Q Are Cordially Uninvited..., Revenant, Rough Beasts of Empire, and Plagues of Night.

January 2016


This month I added the February releases (Voyager: A Pocket Full of Lies, The Original Series: Miasma, Star Trek Ongoing: Reunion, Part 2, and Starfleet Academy #3) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

I also rearranged the order of the three short tales in the Star Wars: Before the Awakening book to better reflect when I figure they take place (specifically when they end).

December 2015

Added Seekers 4 to the 5YM timeline, which I didn't yet have on there for some reason.  Also rearranged the placement of TAS: The Time Trap and SCE: Where Time Stands Still, as talked about a while back in the TrekBBS thread "A Litverse Based TOS Chronology."

December 2015

This month I added the January releases (DS9: Ascendance, Star Trek Ongoing: Reunion, Part 1, Starfleet Academy #2, and New Visions #10) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology along with THE FORCE AWAKENS!

November 2015

Continued tweaking the order of the Star Wars comics as I get around to reading them.  Added the October Star Trek Magazine short fiction story to all its' lists.  Also moved the Star Trek Online fiction from Star Trek Magazine and Pocket onto their own categories and lists now that there are so many of them.  Also added the DC Comics arcs Time Crime and No Compromise now that I noticed they share connections with the other connected issues.

November 2015

This month I added the December releases (The Original Series: Child of Two Worlds, Star Trek Ongoing: Live Live, Part 3, Spectrum War #6, and Starfleet Academy #1) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

October 2015

Added the short story The Immortality Blues which was referenced in Enterprise: Uncertain Logic.  Also added Ishmael which gave the same family name for Spock and Sarek as Uncertain Logic gave.  Added that story to the 5 Year Mission breakdown as well.

October 2015

This month I added the November releases (Seekers 4, Star Trek Ongoing: Live Live, Part 2, New Visions #9, and Spectrum War #5) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also added in all the Star Wars books and comics released recently that I didn't have yet on the Star Wars Chronology.

October 2015

Now that I've read Voyager: Atonement, I did my best to more specifically break the chapters up in the Post-Nemesis-Year-By-Year page.  The book also clarified that I needed to spread the previous Voyager book's chapters out a bit more. 

And since I started reading the new Star Wars Marvel comics, I was able to tweak the order of the first three issues of Star Wars in relation to the first issues of Darth Vader instead of simply putting them in release order.

Also updated the Vanguard page to reflect the order of things decided on by the 5 Year Mission- Month by Month project.  Added Seekers 3 to that 5 Year Mission page as well.

September 2015

Added the Convergence crossover comic series to TNG.  I only had it on the TOS page for some reason til now.  Also placed the Abrams/Green Lantern crossover comic series in it's correct place chronologically.  The author has told me he considers it to take place between upcoming issues 52 and 53.

Also finished updating the order of The Original Series Reading List.

September 2015

This month I added the October releases (Titan: Sight Unseen, Star Trek Ongoing: Live Live, Part 1, and Spectrum War #4) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.  I also started moving things around on The Original Series Reading List page to reflect the order of books developed in the "A Lit-verse Based TOS Chronology" thread several of us worked on on the TrekBBS.  I should get time to finish updating that soon.

Plus I added in all the Star Wars books and comics released recently to the Star Wars Chronology, especially the big wave during Force Friday.

August 2015


A few weeks ago was the two year anniversary of the launch of this site.  I should have put this page together two years ago, but at least I can start it from here on out.

This month I added the September releases (Voyager: Atonement, New Frontier: The Returned Part III, Star Trek Ongoing: Deity, Part 2, New Visions: The Survival Equation, and Spectrum War #3) to their appropriate lists, timelines, and the story count pages.   I also found out about the two latest pieces of Star Trek Magazine original fiction and added them to the story count.

Future entries here will be a bit more interesting at times, but this month's update was pretty basic.
