Beyond the TV series, a plethora of novels have been published, and as there have been so many, the gallery is split into several pages. This second page covers the early novels from Bantam Books, Corgi Books and Orbit Books showing the various reprints, including the "Star Trek Adventures" reprints from UK Titan Books. Also covered is the US Whitman Books hardcover from the Whitman TV Adventures range, the two Random House Books hardbacks and some 80s and 90s paperbacks from Pan Books, Grafton Books, Sparrow Books, Carousel Books and Marvel.

Long before Pocket Books launched their extensive range of paperbacks, there were these sixteen Star Trek novels which have been reprinted several times. Click HERE to see each title and its reprints from Bantam and other publishers. "Mudd's Angels" was a novelisation of the TV episodes "Mudd's Women" and "I, Mudd" which were not included in the numbered novelisation series (See Page 1)

Spock Must Die (16th ed)

US - Bantam Books (1980s Reprints) Cover Variations 2 and 3
Some of the novels had two cover variants during the 1980s. The first, all subtitled "Based on the Television Series Created by Gene Roddenberry" (or similar) under the overall series title of "An Original Star Trek Adventure", had the same cover illustrations as the original releases, but a new font for the main title - the ones I know about or have in my collection are featured in this panel.

The second variants were all subtitled "Space...the Final Frontier..." under the overall title, had the same new font for the main title, but a new cover illustration (with three exceptions) - see next panel.
