ST:DS9, a Chronology of the Series and its Relaunch

This is my chronology for the TV best series of the Star Trek, including episodes of its predecessor which give some background for the story and its relaunch in books, comics, and ebooks after the series ended.


“Prequel” episodes in the immediately preceding iteration of Star Trek that provide a set up for the story in the main series addressed here.  These are essential viewing, especially for those who have not seen Star Trek: The Next Generation or who have not seen it in a long time.

ST:TNG s03e25/s04e01 “The Best of Both Worlds

ST:TNG s04e012 “The Wounded”

ST:TNG s05e03 “Ensign Ro”

ST:TNG s06e10e11 “The Chain of Command”


The episodes of the greatest incarnation of the Star Trek franchise, with the episodes of the core series, crossover episodes with Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, and one comic book story, because you can never have enough tribbles.

After the series ended, fans wanted more and writers wanted to write more.  So Star Trek: Deep Space Nine continued in novels, comics, and ebooks as well as in short story collections.  It was the first of the second generation Star Trek TV series to do so, establishing the trend.  There are several lists of this across the web; mine includes ST TNG novels that feature or include Worf as a Federation ambassador that are not usually included in other lists, but since they touch on subjects the TV series dealt with, I’ve included them in my list of relaunch works.
