Star Trek Expanded Universe

Star Trek: Armada was the proposed title for the Star Trek novel by Canadian science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer. This novel would have been published by Pocket Books. When Paramount vetoed the idea, Sawyer dropped out of the project. In 2003, he released the material he had completed—the first four chapters and an outline for the first novel—to his website as fan fiction.

Sawyer says about Armada:

"This was long before the movie Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, and I was proposing a novel in which Captain Kirk has to try to kill God. Paramount said no discussion of religion was to be allowed in Star Trek books, and that was the end of that.

My Armada predates the last few classic Star Trek movies, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise; much of what follows is contradicted by material presented in those works. Still, I'm very proud of Armada, and offer it here for those who share my fondness for classic Trek.

Attentive readers of my work will recognize in Armada the seeds for the Waldahudin from my Hugo Award-nominated novel Starplex; some of the themes that ultimately ended up in my Hugo Award-nominated {[w|Calculating God}}; and an early version of Chapter 6 (Afsan at the Hunter's Shrine) of my novel Far-Seer. Meanwhile, Trek trivia buffs will recognize that the chapter titles are all lines of dialogue from the original Star Trek television series."
