#149: The Pet (DS9-YA #4)

Quick Note to Readers: I am currently tasked with supervising my son’s virtual schooling. Due to the time commitment this requires, review postings (like this one) may be delayed to Friday evenings or Saturday mornings for the next few weeks. The reviews are getting written, but between handling virtual schooling and having to fit in sleep (because I work overnight), opportunities to transcribe them are severely limited. I know y’all will understand because you’re cool like that. I just wanted you to know. —Jess

This week, when a big brown furry thing takes a shine to Jake, Odo leaves it in his and Nog’s care. But when the wormholes burps up a soap bubble that’s looking for its abducted prince, their bylaws dictate that they can’t give out any useful information for finding him. Are Jake and Nog card-carrying members of G.R.O.S.S.? Does Morn ever panic? And do you even have to read this book at all? All this and more in The Pet, a book written by Mel Gilden. What a guy!

#146: Prisoners of Peace (DS9 YA #3)

This week, Keiko’s class gets a new student, but the only class he’s interested in is Advanced Cardassian Murdering. But when they find a stowaway in the vents, they suddenly realize why there’s always cheesecake in the beef stew. Can the YA books handle full Garak? Is it harder to survive war or peace? And when did everyone turn British all of a sudden? All this and more in Prisoners of Peace, the book that may very well lay claim to the franchise’s first adorable Vulcan.

#145: Antimatter (DS9 #8)

This week, when everyone’s favorite volatile starship fuel gets a day in the limelight, some Bajoran terrorists yank it off the stage. But when Sisko and Dax follow them through the wormhole to retrieve it, they have no idea just how bugged their hotel room is. Can the computer calculate your odds of scoring a hot date? Is there a Doctor on the station? And who’s been tapped to replace Sisko? All this and more in Antimatter, the book whose combadge location is better left undisclosed.

#143: The Search (DS9 episode)

This week, the crew of DS9 is newly aware of an unfriendly presence on the other side of the wormhole, and the numbers they’re crunching don’t look so hot. But when Odo finally discovers others of his own kind, he doesn’t care who he has to ditch to catch a shuttle and head their way. What’s up with the Defiant’s bridge replicator? What carrot should you dangle in front of Diane Carey to keep her attention? And what are Beavis and Butt-head doing here? All this and more in The Search, the book that’s as helpful as a summer poetry workshop.

#141: Warchild (DS9 #7)

This week, when a plague sweeps through Bajoran resettlement camps, Sisko is hesitant to send in his first-stringers. But when a prophecy from Kai Opaka about a healer girl unifying the world makes its way to him, he tasks Dax with finding a straw of hay in a stack of needles. What does Ferengi poetry sound like? How do Bajorans interpret Cinderella? And how many views are Odo’s makeup tutorials getting? All this and more in Warchild, the book where Bashir gets all the donuts he can eat.
