#142: Requiem (TNG #32)

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.

#076: Home Is the Hunter (TOS #52)

This week, Kirk squares off with Totally-Not-Q, who banishes three of his officers to tumultuous moments in Earth’s past. While he learns how to play nice with the Klingons and work out the god-alien’s inscrutable morality, his missing crewmen struggle to reconcile their desire to return to their own time with the obligations they’ve committed to in their new surroundings. What’s a ghargh? Is Kirk always this whiny? Why don’t children ever just listen? It’s the book with a special appearance by John Larroquette!
