Star Trek: Titan is a series of science fiction novels which detail the adventures of Captain William T. Riker, and the crew of the USS Titan. The series was published by Simon & Schuster imprints Pocket Books, Pocket Star, and Gallery Books from 2005 to 2017. The novels are set after the events depicted in the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis. Captain Riker, and his wife Deanna Troi, served aboard the USS Enterprise under the command of Jean-Luc Picard. Both were introduced in The Next Generation episode "Encounter at Farpoint". Other recurring characters include Tuvok, from Voyager, and Alyssa Ogawa, also from The Next Generation.
In the beginning of the 2002 feature film Star Trek Nemesis, Commander William Riker, who has served as First Officer under Captain Jean-Luc Picard for fifteen years aboard two different starships named Enterprise, marries his longtime on-again, off-again love, ship's counselor, Commander Deanna Troi. By the end of the film, Riker has been promoted to Captain, and he and Troi transfer to the USS Titan, Riker's first permanent command. According to the Titan series book description at Amazon.com, the series take place in what is regarded as a new era, following a decade of conflict between the Federation and enemies such as the Borg, the Cardassians, the Klingons, and the Dominion. Starfleet is renewing its mission of peaceful exploration and diplomacy, a mission spearheaded by the Titan, which in addition to Riker and Troi, is manned by "the most biologically varied and culturally diverse crew in Starfleet history." Their first mission, in the debut novel, Taking Wing, is to set up power-sharing talks among the various Romulan factions that, in the wake of Praetor Shinzon's death in Nemesis, threaten to plunge the Romulan Empire into civil war.
The USS Titan (NCC-80102), a Luna-class starship, was designed by Sean Tourangeau in 2005, who entered his concept into a "design the Starship Titan" contest hosted by Simon & Schuster. Tourangeau's design was never seen on-screen in any Star Trek film or television series, only recreated on various book covers, therefore it was not canon. In 2020, a variant of Tourangeau's Titan design was featured in an episode of Star Trek: Lower Decks.
In Decipher, Inc.'s Star Trek Customizable Card Game, the Titan is identified as a Prometheus-class starship. However, the Luna class is available in Star Trek Online, as one of three designs used for the "Tier-5 Reconnaissance Science Vessel".
Not all novels are numbered by Simon & Schuster. Absent Enemies (2014), by John Jackson Miller, was published as an ebook exclusive.
