This week, when Quark’s poker tournament draws a full house, Odo bets it’ll flop. But when one of the players is murdered, Odo decides to ante up, flush out the culprit, and get some straight answers. Meanwhile, subspace waves cut the station’s decks, and Sisko doesn’t know jack about where they’re coming from. Will he fold under Bajoran and Cardassian pressure? Does he have an ace in the hole? Is Deep Space Nine royally screwed, or is there a solution that suits everyone? All this and more in The Big Game, the book where the deal goes down.
This week, Sisko and the Cardassians race to build a truck stop on the other side of the highway. Meanwhile, Kira finds herself in the crosshairs when she learns her favorite podcast host is no great fan of her work. Will Sisko ever trust Kira’s hiring decisions again? What’s the rudest thing to do in Odo’s bucket? And where the heck is Dax? All this and more in Bloodletter, the book where math is power.
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.
