But when a prophecy from Kai Opaka about a healer girl unifying the world makes its way to him, he tasks Dax with finding a straw of hay in a stack of needles. What does Ferengi poetry sound like?

This week, Sarek has some primo dirt on the Romulans, but he needs help closing the deal. Meanwhile, when James Kirk’s nephew gets caught up in a movement to make Earth great again, he starts to wonder if real-world experience is more valuable than credit hours. Why are the Klingons spoiling for a fight so soon after Khitomer? Is this a bad time for Sarek to take a new gig? And can Kirk be cool with his nephew’s new girlfriend? All this and more in Sarek, the book that’s brought to you by Aunt Sylvia’s Kidnapper Chow!
This week, when the wormhole starts coughing up Borgballs, Sisko makes the tough choice to close it down for a while. For his trouble, he gets hounded by a missionary who keeps asking to speak to the manager. Meanwhile, Bashir tries to wrap his head around anti-vaxxers, and a serial killer with the same shapeshifting abilities as Odo brings chaos to the crowded station. How much would Deep Space Nine cost to buy? Could Odo actually fly if he shapeshifted himself some wings? And will O’Brien ever learn how to do even one magic trick? All this and more in The Siege, the book where keeping it real goes horribly, horribly wrong.
This week, Picard yet again vetoes Riker’s call on not joining the away team, and gets his brain wiped for his trouble. While he and a few other senior officers make uncredited cameos in the planet’s televised war games, Riker has to deal with standoffish leaders, planetary shields, and an assistant doctor with different priorities. Is Riker just chopped liver or what? Does Picard really care about his friend’s daughter? How much research should you do before you throw a coworker under the bus? It’s the book that desperately needs a ratings boost.
This week, we meet the Kreel, who have spent over a century being the Klingons’ punching bags. But when the Kreel find an abandoned stash of powerful weapons on a backwater planet, the tables turn, and shockingly, the Klingons start to feel like maybe peace, love, and understanding aren’t such bad ideas after all. Meanwhile, Wesley Crusher has a burdensome boy-genius reputation to live up to, and he intends to maintain it by singlehandedly attempting to cure a friend’s terminal illness. How much does Riker’s beard annoy Picard? Did Worf just decide to leave all pretense of professionalism at home today? Do some people deserve to be bullied? And perhaps the most important question of all: does this book have The Knack, or The Rot?
