Star Trek books and stories by Dayton Ward

This is a list of Star Trek stories and books written by Dayton Ward, who has written numerous novels and novellas, as well as a comic, non-fiction books, and many articles for various Star Trek magazines and StarTrek.com.

Ward's first published Star Trek work was a winning short story in the Strange New Worlds writing contest, which he won places in for two further consecutive years. Following this Ward became a regular writer for the SCE ebook novella series, and also began to work with his regular writing partner Kevin Dilmore. Ward has since gone on to write numerous Star Trek novels as well as other shorter fiction, with a particular focus on TOS and TNG stories. Together with Dilmore, fellow author David Mack, and editor Marco Palmieri, Ward also co-created the Vanguard, and later Seekers series, with Ward-Dilmore and Mack writing alternate books in both series.

The list below is of Ward's Star Trek stories and books, presented in publication order.
