#138: Foreign Foes (TNG #31)

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.

#128: Sins of Commission (TNG #29)

This week, when a passenger liner pulls up alongside the Enterprise, an already stressed-out Worf is embarrassed by a social connection. But when an explosion forces the cruise ship’s evacuation, the aquarium exhibit could be the undoing of them all. Are we too hard on Alexander? When did Barclay get busted down? And do we really want to know what goes on in the “Vibration Room”? All this and more in Sins of Commission, the book where Geordi, unsurprisingly, has blow-up dolls on the brain.

#123: Dark Mirror (TNG event novel)

This week, when the universe sneezes, the dolphins are the first to feel it. But when the crew realizes where they are, they ping-pong the Enterprise off the Enterprise while they decide who gets to sign up for the espionage mission. What do this book and GameFAQs have in common? Has the Federation somehow improved its already dizzyingly fast trauma recovery speed? Did Diane Duane accidentally set this book during Wolf 359? All this and more in Dark Mirror, the book that’s chock full of bremsstrahlung.

#117: Guises of the Mind (TNG #27)

This week, en route to Capulon IV, Troi helps a telepathic nun learn how to put up some barriers. But when the king’s shady behavior necessitates an accelerated itinerary, they suddenly have to cram for a final they thought was still a few weeks away. And when they’re drugged and imprisoned, they’ll need a Hail Mary to prevent an imposter from seizing the throne. Will Data solve religion? Am I seeing phantom anagrams? Is this Guinan’s worst advice ever? All this and more in Guises of the Mind, the book that truly has faith of the heart.

#104: Nightshade (TNG #24)

This week, Picard is tapped to help bring an end to two hundred years of civil war on Oriana, and instead of enlisting his best people, he brings Worf and Deanna. But when Picard is accused of murder and the peace talks go south, the episode turns out to be a rerun. Meanwhile, Geordi helps a bunch of squares fix their engines and ends up tasting the rainbow. Can the Klingon and the Betazoid root out the culprit before Picard is executed? Can they convince the Orianians to accept GMOs? And are they maybe getting a little bit cocky? All this and more in Nightshade, the book that’s elementary, my dear Betan-Ka.
