This week, when a malware attack softlocks the Enterprise bridge, Admiral Nechayev takes the opportunity to have them to test a new prototype saucer section. But when her new aide hijacks the experiment, the Prime Directive itself may be at stake. Who is the Architect? Who was the worst senior officer to babysit as a kid? And are canon-foreshadowing jokes ever not funny? All this and more in Rogue Saucer, or, When Keepin’ Saucer Sep Real Goes Wrong.

This week brings us, at long last, to our very first all-original Next Generation printed adventure. It’s the mid-90s and the Cold War is still chugging along, but after a giant electromagnetic creature eats a Soviet battleship, the men aboard spend the next four centuries in a cold bore. Four hundred years later, the EMC gets an appetite for starship, and the Enterprise-D has to figure how to talk to it and puzzle out the most humane way to put ghosts down, all while slowly patching up their own still-rocky relationships. Will Data ever get hip to the lingo? What does being a “mind slut” even mean? And just what the heck is Riker’s glitch? It’s the book that spends a full fifteen pages on a discussion of ethical euthanasia.
