This week, when the wormhole starts coughing up Borgballs, Sisko makes the tough choice to close it down for a while. For his trouble, he gets hounded by a missionary who keeps asking to speak to the manager. Meanwhile, Bashir tries to wrap his head around anti-vaxxers, and a serial killer with the same shapeshifting abilities as Odo brings chaos to the crowded station. How much would Deep Space Nine cost to buy? Could Odo actually fly if he shapeshifted himself some wings? And will O’Brien ever learn how to do even one magic trick? All this and more in The Siege, the book where keeping it real goes horribly, horribly wrong.
This week, Benjamin Sisko boards the galaxy’s most remote truck stop with his arms full of baggage, and I don’t mean Samsonite. He’s far from the station’s only disgruntled employee, however, and every one of them will have to turn those frowns upside-down if they hope to clean up after the previous Cardassian tenants. Sisko tells Picard to take this job and shove it, but the sudden appearance of a seemingly stable wormhole may render the question of a career in academia academic. Is Sisko the messiah the Bajorans have been searching for? Can a hew-mon and a Ferengi be friends? And how often do Vulcan names get recycled? All this and more in Emissary, the book that was made possible by a grant from the Jake Sisko Career Fund and by Viewers Like You.
