#138: Foreign Foes (TNG #31)

This week, getting the Klingons and a race they waged war against for seventy years to get along turns out to be exactly as frustrating as it sounds. But the negotiations go from bad to worse when Riker and Deanna go missing, Geordi goes for-real blind, and the Fox News Kool-Aid impairs Data’s command judgment. Which officer does the most puff-piece interviews? Does the Federation provide adequate phaser training for civilians? And can you really work a combadge with a spoon? All this and more in Foreign Foes, or, Blame It on the Grain.

#137: Q-Squared (TNG event novel)

This week, Q claims to be omniscient, then turns around and asks Picard for parenting advice. But if the almighty trickster can’t rein in his mischievous protégé, the child’s tantrum will break a little more than just a stray vase. What was Q’s contribution to the creation of Earth? Is the Enterprise as OSHA-compliant as it could be? And does trouble really follow the ship everywhere? All this and more in Q-Squared, the book where no one is safe, not even from Winnie-the-Pooh.

#136: Capture the Flag (TNG-YA #4)

This week, Geordi’s underdog dodgeball win may earn him an over-the-head wedgie. But when he shows a talent for Simon Says, he’s saddled with the responsibility of squeezing a tactical victory out of a band of ragtag misfits. Which races should appear more in Star Trek? Why would having a Vulcan on your team be a liability? And did everyone on the Enterprise talk to Boothby at some point? All this and more in Capture the Flag, the book that isn’t terribly interested in subtle villain names.

#135: All Good Things… (TNG episode novelization)

This week, Jean-Luc Picard has come unstuck in time, and he’ll have to learn how to control the quantum leaps if he hopes to clean up a puddle of anti-time he spilled. But when he smells an omnipotent rat, everyone’s favorite trickster shows up right on Q to deliver humanity’s progress report. Did Mr. Mot accidentally save the universe? Did Miles and Keiko have the worst meet cute ever? And just what the heck did Picard do to that poodle? All this and more in All Good Things…, the book that wants its own piece of the Light.

#134: Traitor Winds (TOS #70)

This week, while Sulu plays flyboy in the desert, Chekov learns the hard way that real-world experience doesn’t translate to college credits. But when the two men are charged with a host of crimes, Uhura wonders if she may have to have her teacher’s pet put down. Will the boys be home in time for Christmas? Is the Lost Years concept out of gas? And what are some of the more mundane occupational hazards of corporate espionage? All this and more in Traitor Winds, the book that forces us to confront the existence of Klingon anime body pillows.
