I used to have a trilogy of Star Trek novels, and I'm hoping that somebody here can remember these.

Here are some of the details that I can remember

  • Each novel was in a different universe (first was TOS, second was TNG, and I can't remember the third).
  • It involved the Enterprise going to a rip in space in which there were some sort of monsters coming through...their race preyed on fear.

That's about all I remember...my younger self found them to be highly entertaining, and I'm pretty sure they got sold in a garage sale long ago. I would love it if somebody could puzzle out what this series was called to see if the nostalgia holds up or not.

  • “Each novel was in a different universe... first was TOS, second was TNG” — just to be an enormous pedant, TOS and TNG are in the same universe, about a hundred years apart. Commented Mar 1, 2016 at 17:39

ISFDB has a list of Star Trek novels, I don't know how complete it is. Memory Alpha also has a list of novels.

A quick search suggests that one of the books may be The Soldiers of Fear. It is the second book of four, after First Strike and before Time's Enemy and The Final Fury, in the Star Trek: Invasion! series. Quoting Memory Alpha:

Star Trek: Invasion! was a four-part series of thematic crossover novels released by Pocket Books. The books spanned all four major Trek television tie-in novel series (at that time), including TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager. An omnibus edition collected all four installments in one volume.

The novels are about the Furies, successively encountered by Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway.

    For novels, Memory Beta may be a better resource.
