#182: The Long Night (DS9 #14)

This week, the Supreme Ruler of Jibet flees an uprising, but misses a few million snoozes on his alarm. Eight hundred years later, his missing Uhaul has been found, and now the entire Alpha Quadrant is stopping by to rubberneck—and get in on the storage wars. What qualities get an ensign picked for Defiant duty? What does the officers’ handbook say about swearing? And can Smith and Rusch make alien fetch happen? All this and more in The Long Night, the book that—BAH GAWD! THAT’S JAKE SISKO’S MUSIC!

#175: Station Rage (DS9 #13)

This week, when an exploration of the station’s deepest depths turns up a few cold plates of Cardie corpses, only Garak knows the true value of their find. But when he reanimates the dormant bodies, an old Gul gets the Google Alert he’s been dreading for decades. Will a misused homonym portend a bad book? What’s the right amount of Earth idioms for aliens to use? And is this the part where Odo blows up? All this and more in Station Rage, one of the tightest MVP races to date!

#174: The Way of the Warrior (DS9 episode)

This week, when the Klingons come over to crash on Sisko’s couch, he enlists Worf to figure out where their road trip is taking them. But when they learn exactly what kind of old-fashioned throwdown Gowron is planning, they’ve got to stop him before he wipes his butt with every treaty on the books. Is talking about life mutually exclusive from living it? Do Klingons eat salad? And is there something fishy about Morn? All this and more in The Way of the Warrior, the book that can’t not contain an obscure military history reference!

#170: The Laertian Gamble (DS9 #12)

This week, when Bashir agrees to gamble on a telepath’s behalf, he breaks more than just the bank. When entire ships and moons start disappearing, Dax and Kira have to wrestle with the forces of chaos itself to bring them back. What’s the deal with Complexity Theory? What are Ferengi priests like? And is the closest point of comparison for this book really that episode? All this and more in The Laertian Gamble, the book that’s brought to you by Meat Product 62!

#169: Field Trip (DS9 YA #6)

This week, when Keiko promises Sisko her class’s field trip to the Gamma Quadrant will be totally safe, it’s almost as if she’s never seen Star Trek. But when a Cardassian attack forces an emergency landing, Jake’s Bigfoot sighting might be the thing that saves them all. How much say does the senior staff have in Keiko’s curriculum? How badly are the YA books and the show going to de-sync? And is Nog the big mood of 2021? All this and more in Field Trip, the book that remembers a more innocent time.
