Star Trek Novel Timeline

The Star Trek Universe of novels is far more vast than any other universe I am aware of, at least for the novel universes I am interested in reading.  You can do a Google search and find various lists, but most of the ones at the top of the Google Search are 2-5 years old, from what I have found.

Today, however, I found a list that I want to share here.  It isn’t a complete list of every arm of the Star Trek Universe, but it is solely the TNG: The Next Generation line.  TNG is my favorite line in the ST Universe; however, I also enjoy reading the Star Trek Vanguard, Titan and DS9 series.
