#188: The Return (TOS/TNG)

This week, a Romulan with a personal vendetta un-drops the bridge on Kirk for her own nefarious ends. But she’s also doing it to help out the Borg, who hope to use him to take out their own worst enemy and assimilate the Federation (but not the Romulans, they double-pinky-swear). What use do the Borg have for an alliance with anyone? What’s behind the curtain at the Vulcan video store? And when Kirk’s not on screen, should the other characters be asking, “Where’s Jimmy?” All this and more in The Return, the book that didn’t even let the corpse get cold.

#163: The Fearful Summons (TOS #74)

This week, when Captain Sulu gets abducted by rogue traders, his old boss rounds up his friends to mount a rescue. But just because they’re sailing on a luxury yacht doesn’t mean this mission is going to be a pleasure cruise. How does Kirk feel about being a hero today? Will Sulu always need Kirk to clean up his messes? And was Spock born for the stage? All this and more in The Fearful Summons, the book that practically does my job for me.

#162: The Ashes of Eden (TOS)

This week, Shatner Claus delivers us a gift in the form of his first Trek novel. Right as Kirk feels the zest draining from his life, an alluring young woman comes along and brings his pocket rocket back up to maximum warp. But his friends are concerned that his dowsing rod might lead him into some murky waters. Who or what are the Children of Heaven? Is Kirk being used? And has Sulu become a company man? All this and more in The Ashes of Eden, the book where he says the thing!

#154: Recovery (TOS #73)

I can’t believe we’ve made it this far already. It seems like only yesterday we were kicking off with The Motion Picture, and now we’re getting ready to dive into the sixth Star Trek television series. Sixth! That’s absolutely bananas. I can’t wait to dive headfirst into the adventures of Burnham, Tilly, Saru, silver-fox daddy Pike, and all the—

Wait, what? We’re not on Discovery? What are we on? …Oh, Recovery? Oh. My bad.

#148: Star Trek Generations (TOS/TNG movie)

This week, the Enterprise-B scores Starfleet’s lowest ever Uber rating when James Kirk dies on its shakedown cruise. But when a mad scientist will stop at nothing to reach his happy place, Jean-Luc Picard must step outside of time and put in a formal crossover request to stop him. Is the time finally right for Jim and Carol? Are the Reeves-Stevenses being cheeky? And is Sulu ready to turn into a lizard? All this and more in Star Trek Generations, the book that finally tosses Scotty a compliment.
