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.

This week, the Enterprise gets a request from the planet Okeanos to come pick up their humans. But where Kirk wants to hear all sides first, his civilian guest prefers a less measured approach. Matters are further complicated by Klingons supplying weapons to help take down the human settlers. Who holds the true claim to the planet? Is World War III happening now or later? Has the civilian commissioner ever interacted with other humans before? All this and more in From the Depths, the book that will press all your “yuck” buttons at once.
This week, the Enterprise gets totaled, and worst of all, they can’t even sell it for scrap. But Picard is determined to get it back in one piece, and it’ll take more than some hairy mud to stop him. Meanwhile, Data helps ease a socially awkward girl into the complexities of contact with the most frightening creature of all: men. What’s the benefit of being voluntarily overweight in the future? What does Riker really get out of playing the trombone? And is there any Earth sport Worf won’t treat like gladiatorial combat? All this and more in Grounded, the book that demonstrates the real reason for technobabble.
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.
This week, Riker feels the cold, clammy hand of anxiety grabbing his shoulder. But there’s no time for that, because a survey of desolate worlds turns up unexpected humans. Once the dust settles from the latest revolt, they discover a cockfighting ring—but it’s the birds pitting the humans against each other. Meanwhile, a young rebel leader learns that overthrowing the oppressor is merely the first victory. Why is Star Trek so bad at dealing with trauma? What’s the minimum threshold for getting to have an opinion on the bridge? And how much would a top-of-the-line thought-blocking helmet set Deanna back? All this and more in “Chains of Command”—no, not the one with the four lights.
