#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.

#179: Nova Command (TNG YA #9)

This week, Cadet Picard confronts the uncomfortable truth that there’s always someone better than you. But when he and his friends run into trouble on an elite training exercise, they aren’t sure if it’s the Kobayashi Maru or the real deal. Can total jerks have bits worth stealing? Who should be getting Academy buildings named after them? And will white people ever stop claiming Cherokee ancestry? All this and more in Nova Command, the book that forces a revision to the “Boothby is a Q” theory.

#173: Starfall (TNG YA #8)

This week, when Jean-Luc fails his Academy entrance exam, his father squashes dreams of further attempts like grapes underfoot. But the young Picard is convinced he’s seen the last of the summer wine. Will Jean-Luc buckle under the twin weights of tradition and parental expectation? Is everything better under the sea? And what exactly is Louis getting up to with those twins? All this and more in Starfall, the book where you find out who your true friends are.

#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.

#144: Federation (TOS/TNG event)

This week, when Zefram Cochrane’s warp drive starts to get its space legs, it isn’t long before a shady character comes a-callin’. But when Cochrane tries to tell him the science he wants won’t work, it sets off an intergalactic chase that spans hundreds of years and discarded body parts. Why does the Starfleet emblem look the way it does? Who invented inertial dampers? And how many people attended the final World Series? All this and more in Federation, the book where Chekov finally spills the beans.
