The TNG relaunch is an unofficial title given to Star Trek: The Next Generation novels set after the movie Nemesis. The term relaunch is used to delineate the novels and their consistent continuity from other TNG prose.

The post-Nemesis fiction began with the novel Death in Winter in winter 2005. The next three books in the series were published in 2007, to celebrate TNG's 20th Anniversary; two featured the Borg, and one Q - The two Borg stories follow on from each other with the Q story as an interlude in-between.

The relaunch continued in 2008 with the novel Greater Than the Sum and as part of the crossover trilogy Star Trek: Destiny.

The relaunch refers to fiction set after Nemesis, but builds upon what was previously established in prose set before the movie in the A Time to... miniseries, which chronicled the adventures of the Enterprise-E and her crew in the year leading up to Nemesis.

Star Trek: Destiny is a crossover trilogy that features TNG during the relaunch.

The adventures of some of the former Enterprise crew also continue in the Star Trek: Titan series.
