star trek has a unusual take on sci fi. a mix of military scifi but utopian adventure thriller. i've read most of the books and seen all the shows but something as popular as this must have inspired similar stories. any suggestions?

    Star trek was objectively terrible, I won't even mention the new series. From it's inception it was just a platform to push an agenda.

    I honestly can't think of a single science fiction series or book that's similar in those ways to Trek

    The Vorkosigan Saga is vaguely like it at times. Its real strength is its slightly harder than usual sci-fi mixed with great character drama. Not bad humor or world-building either.

    Star Trek: Prometheus (whole trilogy published 2016) was written by two Germans (Christian Humberg and Bernd Perplies)

    It's the first officially licensed Star Trek novel—or to be more exact: trilogy—ever conceived by foreign authors outside the US .
