This week, Quark overcomes the considerable handicap of being a fictional character to bring the accumulated wisdom of his species (or at least a fraction of it) to our bookshelves. But it remains to be seen whether this light sampling of alien aphorisms is worth the latinum. Do the Rules hit different in a book? Is “sexual icon” a value judgment one can make about oneself? And what does Forrest Gump have to do with any of this? All this and more in The Ferengi Rules of Acquisition, coming soon to a theater near you!

This week, when a scientist of questionable repute dies, the powers of the galaxy race to bid on his creations. But when Wesley stumbles on a way to make gold-pressed latinum grow on trees, the invention falls into the hands of the last people you’d want that sort of thing to. What is Geordi’s major malfunction? Can we break the Bing Klingon translator? And has Data been running a long con this whole time? All this and more in Balance of Power, the book that dirties up nicely.
This week, when everyone’s favorite volatile starship fuel gets a day in the limelight, some Bajoran terrorists yank it off the stage. But when Sisko and Dax follow them through the wormhole to retrieve it, they have no idea just how bugged their hotel room is. Can the computer calculate your odds of scoring a hot date? Is there a Doctor on the station? And who’s been tapped to replace Sisko? All this and more in Antimatter, the book whose combadge location is better left undisclosed.
This week, when a passenger liner pulls up alongside the Enterprise, an already stressed-out Worf is embarrassed by a social connection.

And do we really want to know what goes on in the “Vibration Room”? All this and more in Sins of Commission, the book where Geordi, unsurprisingly, has blow-up dolls on the brain.
