This week, when everyone’s favorite volatile starship fuel gets a day in the limelight, some Bajoran terrorists yank it off the stage. But when Sisko and Dax follow them through the wormhole to retrieve it, they have no idea just how bugged their hotel room is. Can the computer calculate your odds of scoring a hot date? Is there a Doctor on the station? And who’s been tapped to replace Sisko? All this and more in Antimatter, the book whose combadge location is better left undisclosed.
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.
This week, while Riker plays undercover spy, Data plays third base. With the Priority One message not going to him and having to put the Enterprise in park in case Riker gets deep in it, Picard isn’t quite sure what to do with all this free time. How did Riker get into jazz? How would this book be different if Data read the Baseball Prospectus? What did Michael Jan Friedman get right and wrong about the state of baseball in the 21st century? It’s the book that’s handed out for free by the Church of the Center Field Bleachers.
