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, 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.
This week, when the Enterprise investigates a ship that crashed on a Dyson sphere, they find a heck of a prize in an old cereal box. But before they have time to help him come to terms with outliving his usefulness, the sphere pulls the Enterprise in, and suddenly, they need his help to make it go from suck to blow. Meanwhile, some lower-decks action pads out the page count and takes some heat off of the senior staff. Will Scotty respond well to therapy? How badly would Picard flip out about food on the bridge? And how does Dr. Crusher really feel about Scotty? All this and more in Relics, the book that’s very proud of its en dashes.
This week, Uhura gets hand-picked by Starfleet for an assignment that actually uses her degree. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew tracks down a band of raiders laying waste to a string of colonies, and a nervous novice named Pavel Chekov gets thrown straight in the deep end as he learns the ropes of life on a tour of duty in deep space and the do’s and don’ts of bridge protocol. Why did Uhura get into communications? Will she be swayed into staying aboard her new ship permanently? Can Lt. Baila and Chekov get their respective acts together before their next performance review? All this and more in The Disinherited, the book that proves three heads are better than four.
