Star Trek stories by Greg Cox

Page created 26th February 2016. Last updated 1st April 2020.

This is a list of Star Trek stories written by Greg Cox, who has written Star Trek prose and shorter form fiction for all the prime Star Trek series except Enterprise and Discovery, although the majority of his work focuses on characters and settings from TOS and TNG. Cox's settings tend to be quite wide ranging, particularly his TOS stories, which have been set in almost all of the major eras from the TV and film series, as well dipping into other time periods; perhaps most notably his Eugenics Wars books set in the 20th century.

Cox was also going to be one of the authors of the first four adult novels set in the Kelvin timeline, having written a novel focused on Spock-prime in the new timeline, called the The Hazard of Concealing. Alas quite late in production all four of these books were cancelled (not before blurbs and preliminary covers were released however). Cox reused elements of his book later, in the TOS novel No Time Like the Past.

Outside of Star Trek Cox has written tie-in books for numerous other series, including Alias, CSI, and The 4400. He has also written novelisations of many movies and comic series.

The list below is of Cox's Star Trek stories, in all formats, presented in publication order.
