#175: Station Rage (DS9 #13)

This week, when an exploration of the station’s deepest depths turns up a few cold plates of Cardie corpses, only Garak knows the true value of their find. But when he reanimates the dormant bodies, an old Gul gets the Google Alert he’s been dreading for decades. Will a misused homonym portend a bad book? What’s the right amount of Earth idioms for aliens to use? And is this the part where Odo blows up? All this and more in Station Rage, one of the tightest MVP races to date!

#174: The Way of the Warrior (DS9 episode)

This week, when the Klingons come over to crash on Sisko’s couch, he enlists Worf to figure out where their road trip is taking them. But when they learn exactly what kind of old-fashioned throwdown Gowron is planning, they’ve got to stop him before he wipes his butt with every treaty on the books. Is talking about life mutually exclusive from living it? Do Klingons eat salad? And is there something fishy about Morn? All this and more in The Way of the Warrior, the book that can’t not contain an obscure military history reference!

#168: First Frontier (TOS #75)

This week, an experiment gone wrong sends the Enterprise back to when dinosaurs ruled the earth. But when they discover that this Earth got through puberty without a crater face, it’s off to the Guardian of Forever to set right what once didn’t go wrong. What does an injured Captain Kirk bring to a story’s table? Are Starfleet officers aware of what they’re signing up for? Is Diane Carey, for that matter? All this and more in First Frontier, the book that doesn’t go as all in as you would hope.

#143: The Search (DS9 episode)

This week, the crew of DS9 is newly aware of an unfriendly presence on the other side of the wormhole, and the numbers they’re crunching don’t look so hot. But when Odo finally discovers others of his own kind, he doesn’t care who he has to ditch to catch a shuttle and head their way. What’s up with the Defiant’s bridge replicator? What carrot should you dangle in front of Diane Carey to keep her attention? And what are Beavis and Butt-head doing here? All this and more in The Search, the book that’s as helpful as a summer poetry workshop.

#119: Descent (TNG episode novelization)

This week, when Data turns heel during an encounter with the Borg, the experience leaves him shook. But when his brother comes calling with a job offer, he finds it’s one he literally can’t refuse. Now his friends have to drag him back to reality before the Sons of Soong can roll out Wolf 359 II: Cybernetic Boogaloo. Is Barnaby any less annoying in the book? Will Isaac Newton ever figure the holodeck situation out? How does one master the arcane feline arts? All this and more in Descent, the book that oozes boredom.
