#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!

#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.

#127: Sarek (TOS event novel)

This week, Sarek has some primo dirt on the Romulans, but he needs help closing the deal. Meanwhile, when James Kirk’s nephew gets caught up in a movement to make Earth great again, he starts to wonder if real-world experience is more valuable than credit hours. Why are the Klingons spoiling for a fight so soon after Khitomer? Is this a bad time for Sarek to take a new gig? And can Kirk be cool with his nephew’s new girlfriend? All this and more in Sarek, the book that’s brought to you by Aunt Sylvia’s Kidnapper Chow!

#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.

#100: War Drums (TNG #23)

This week, when a Federation colony asks the Enterprise to spray for wild Klingons, Picard disrespectfully declines, but sends Worf down to broker peace. Meanwhile, Ro Laren realizes she has more than just affirmative action to worry about when the bed bugs begin to bite. Will Worf persuade the wild Klingon children to pursue peace? Can Ro explain to the villagers why the wavy lines on the seismograph are bad before a sentient tsunami picks everyone’s bones clean? And who’s better at hide-and-seek: Data or Deanna Troi? All this and more in War Drums, the book that, unfortunately, features no dinosaur hunting.
