#175: Station Rage (DS9 #13)

This week, when an exploration of the station’s deepest depths turns up a few cold plates of Cardie corpses, only Garak knows the true value of their find. But when he reanimates the dormant bodies, an old Gul gets the Google Alert he’s been dreading for decades. Will a misused homonym portend a bad book? What’s the right amount of Earth idioms for aliens to use? And is this the part where Odo blows up? All this and more in Station Rage, one of the tightest MVP races to date!

#174: The Way of the Warrior (DS9 episode)

This week, when the Klingons come over to crash on Sisko’s couch, he enlists Worf to figure out where their road trip is taking them. But when they learn exactly what kind of old-fashioned throwdown Gowron is planning, they’ve got to stop him before he wipes his butt with every treaty on the books. Is talking about life mutually exclusive from living it? Do Klingons eat salad? And is there something fishy about Morn? All this and more in The Way of the Warrior, the book that can’t not contain an obscure military history reference!

#170: The Laertian Gamble (DS9 #12)

This week, when Bashir agrees to gamble on a telepath’s behalf, he breaks more than just the bank. When entire ships and moons start disappearing, Dax and Kira have to wrestle with the forces of chaos itself to bring them back. What’s the deal with Complexity Theory? What are Ferengi priests like? And is the closest point of comparison for this book really that episode? All this and more in The Laertian Gamble, the book that’s brought to you by Meat Product 62!

#169: Field Trip (DS9 YA #6)

This week, when Keiko promises Sisko her class’s field trip to the Gamma Quadrant will be totally safe, it’s almost as if she’s never seen Star Trek. But when a Cardassian attack forces an emergency landing, Jake’s Bigfoot sighting might be the thing that saves them all. How much say does the senior staff have in Keiko’s curriculum? How badly are the YA books and the show going to de-sync? And is Nog the big mood of 2021? All this and more in Field Trip, the book that remembers a more innocent time.

#167: The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition (DS9, misc.)

This week, Quark overcomes the considerable handicap of being a fictional character to bring the accumulated wisdom of his species (or at least a fraction of it) to our bookshelves. But it remains to be seen whether this light sampling of alien aphorisms is worth the latinum. Do the Rules hit different in a book? Is “sexual icon” a value judgment one can make about oneself? And what does Forrest Gump have to do with any of this? All this and more in The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, coming soon to a theater near you!
