This week, Geordi may be on a field trip to an active volcano, but his peers sure don’t have the warmth they used to. That’ll change soon enough, however, when they suddenly need him to do the entire group project. What’s with the Starfleet Academy books and flooding? Is there anything more soul-withering than a Vulcan scowl? And what good cadet doesn’t know all the legal two-letter Scrabble words? All this and more in Atlantis Station, the book that’s a race to the bottom, and I don’t mean the ocean.

This week, getting the Klingons and a race they waged war against for seventy years to get along turns out to be exactly as frustrating as it sounds. But the negotiations go from bad to worse when Riker and Deanna go missing, Geordi goes for-real blind, and the Fox News Kool-Aid impairs Data’s command judgment. Which officer does the most puff-piece interviews? Does the Federation provide adequate phaser training for civilians? And can you really work a combadge with a spoon? All this and more in Foreign Foes, or, Blame It on the Grain.
This week, Q claims to be omniscient, then turns around and asks Picard for parenting advice. But if the almighty trickster can’t rein in his mischievous protégé, the child’s tantrum will break a little more than just a stray vase. What was Q’s contribution to the creation of Earth? Is the Enterprise as OSHA-compliant as it could be? And does trouble really follow the ship everywhere? All this and more in Q-Squared, the book where no one is safe, not even from Winnie-the-Pooh.
This week, Geordi’s underdog dodgeball win may earn him an over-the-head wedgie. But when he shows a talent for Simon Says, he’s saddled with the responsibility of squeezing a tactical victory out of a band of ragtag misfits. Which races should appear more in Star Trek? Why would having a Vulcan on your team be a liability? And did everyone on the Enterprise talk to Boothby at some point? All this and more in Capture the Flag, the book that isn’t terribly interested in subtle villain names.
This week, Jean-Luc Picard has come unstuck in time, and he’ll have to learn how to control the quantum leaps if he hopes to clean up a puddle of anti-time he spilled. But when he smells an omnipotent rat, everyone’s favorite trickster shows up right on Q to deliver humanity’s progress report. Did Mr. Mot accidentally save the universe? Did Miles and Keiko have the worst meet cute ever? And just what the heck did Picard do to that poodle? All this and more in All Good Things…, the book that wants its own piece of the Light.
