#138: Foreign Foes (TNG #31)

This week, getting the Klingons and a race they waged war against for seventy years to get along turns out to be exactly as frustrating as it sounds. But the negotiations go from bad to worse when Riker and Deanna go missing, Geordi goes for-real blind, and the Fox News Kool-Aid impairs Data’s command judgment. Which officer does the most puff-piece interviews? Does the Federation provide adequate phaser training for civilians? And can you really work a combadge with a spoon? All this and more in Foreign Foes, or, Blame It on the Grain.

#130: The Patrian Transgression (TOS #69)

This week, when the Enterprise aids a non-Federation planet with its rebellion problem, Kirk finally gets to work with a diplomat he likes. But when he’s pushed into leading the way, he’s more than a little uncomfortable with the ace the cops have up their psychic sleeve. Which senior officer would you not want to catch en flagrante? Could you eat rat meat if it tasted like steak? And what’s the latest on future sports popularity? All this and more in The Patrian Transgression, the book whose title sounds like a Big Bang Theory episode.

#113: From the Depths (TOS #66)

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.

#104: Nightshade (TNG #24)

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.

#101: Death Count (TOS #62)

This week, when a trip to the souvenir shop goes sideways for Chekov, he’ll soon have more to worry about than a night in the slammer. An efficiency expert starts gunning for his job—that is, until he gets gunned down himself. What goofy hobby is Sulu taking up this time? Has The Motion Picture finally been stripped of its Worst Transporter Accident title? And is someone trying to ship Chekov and Uhura? All this and more in Death Count, the book that points its thumbs at thee.
