This week, Kirk’s battle with the Gorn captain remains the stuff of legend a century later, but the official Blu-Rays all cut off right at the good part. But when Picard tastes of the forbidden donut, he’ll get his own chance to put his stamp on history. How many personal growth arcs can Barclay sustain? Can beggars still not be choosers in the 24th century? And which TOS episode is this book really a sequel to? All this and more in Requiem, the perfect book to read after a phaser-induced siesta.
This week, a space yacht hanging out inside a stellar cluster is only the first impossible sight of many to come for the Enterprise crew. But when they venture inside to visit Planet Germany, Picard and Ro make the mistake of sampling the wares. Now they have to escape or spend the rest of their lives posing as peasants. Will the Enterprise make it out in one piece? Will the Prime Directive make it out in one piece? Will Worf’s dignity make it out in one piece? All this and more in Here There Be Dragons, the book that swears it’s not touching.
