Thrawn's fantastic Trek-lit reading order flow chart.

Ever been unsure whether to start the next Star Trek book series you're interested in? Not sure what to read first, or what comes next? I've tried to help before with my Amazon list of what comes before and after Destiny; but a straight list doesn't quite explain all the ins-and-outs of the Trek-lit continuity. Thankfully TrekBBS user Thrawn has found the solution, with his brilliant Star Trek Lit-Verse Reading Order Flowchart.

Whether you're a fan of TNG, DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise the chart shows how they spin off into Titan, Klingon Empire, or Vanguard, and crossover into Destiny, the Typhon Pact, the Mirror Universe, and more; letting you chart your own path through the Trek-litverse.

Thrawn has kindly allowed me to share this with you, and I think it's such a useful guide I've added it as one of the permanent links to the top of the page alongside my schedule listings. Enjoy:

That's absolutely fantastic! I have this huge excel file that has all of the episodes, movies and novels in, and I tried to order then chronologically.... but this here is SO much better (although my file covers the full timeline, starting 1996 with "The rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh" :)

When you see it done like this, it's hard to believe no one thought to do it before. It's so elegant, so easy to understand, and pick and choose what you want to get into. Can't praise Thrawn enough.
