This week, Riker has had a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day, and by “day” I mean “four decades”. But then he suddenly remembers he lives in Star Trek and hijacks the Guardian of Forever to take a mulligan. Meanwhile, we take our own trip to the past and watch a young, cocky, clean-shaven Will Riker as he brings the full force of the old Riker charm to bear on an aloof, self-assured Betazoid named Deanna Troi. How do Betazoid restaurants work? Do you think Kirk wrote his own autobiography? And can any of us dream of aspiring to Lwaxana Troi’s level of pettiness? All this and more in Imzadi, the book that begins, naturally, at the end.

This week, everyone gets antsy when the Jarada get a bee in their bonnet about exchanging ambassadors. But when the populace starts buggin’ out, the away team tries to flee, but Dr. Crusher isn’t allowed to clock out until she saves the world. Do insects appreciate the trombone? What kind of couple celebrates their six-month anniversary? Can we go watch the Federation Games instead? All this and more in the admirably massive Imbalance.
This week, the lights are on at Domarus IV, but no one’s home—or so the Enterprise thinks. A jalopy from the Teniran Echelon shows up to call dibs on the planet, but Picard wants to see some license and registration. But when shuttles and captains start to disappear in Laser Floyd clouds, the two crews demand answers. While Data and Deanna try to keep the campers happy, Picard and the Teniran captain are stuck playing Darmok and Jalad at Minecraft. But will Picard open his arms wide? or will the walls fall at Domarus? All this and more in Perchance to Dream, the book that teaches us that sharing truly is caring.
