Picard as Indiana Jones?

While billed as a Star Trek: The Next Generation novel, The Buried Age by Christopher L. Bennett is also labelled “A Tale of The Lost Era,” continuing the stories set between the end of the classic Star Trek films and the beginning of TNG and “Encounter at Farpoint.” In the pages of this millennia- and epoch-spanning story, we learn a great deal about the history of our galaxy and what made Captain Jean-Luc Picard into the man we see at the beginning of his journey aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise.

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Bruce and Dan discuss The Buried Age. We talk about The Battle of Maxia, Picard’s trial, a quest to discover hidden secrets of the galaxy’s past, the mysterious Ariel, the measure of a man, the lessons learned in this story, the origins of Picard’s crew, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings for The Buried Age.

Positively Trek Book Club: Moments Asunder with Special Guest Dayton Ward!

Coda, Book I
Moments Asunder

With special guest Dayton Ward!

Purchase:
E-book (Kindle): Amazon.com | Amazon.ca | Amazon.co.uk

The Temporal Apocalypse begins! For 20 years, the “novelverse” has presented us with a unique opportunity to grow the Star Trek universe outside the films and television that make up “canon,” with authors given unprecedented freedom to take the stories of the TNG era in new and exciting directions. After all, there was no way that televised Trek would ever return to the 24th century… right? Well, all of that changed with Star Trek: Picard, which meant that in order to line up with canon, the novelverse would have to be fixed. That fix comes in three parts, with the Star Trek: Coda trilogy by authors Dayton Ward, James Swallow, and David Mack.

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan and Bruce sit down with Dayton Ward to discuss Moments Asunder, the first book of the Coda trilogy. We talk about a story 20 years in the making, Dayton’s collaborators, Wesley Crusher, the big baddies of the novel, shocking story moments, swinging for the fences, and wrap up with our final thoughts and where Dayton can be found online and what he’s working on next.

The Life of a Federation Legend

With special guest Una McCormack!

Purchase:
E-book (Kindle): Amazon.com | Amazon.ca | Amazon.co.uk

There are not many people who can be said to have influenced centuries of galactic politics and shaped the very foundations of the Federation. Described by Starfleet Admiral Brackett as “one of our most celebrated Ambassadors and advisors to Federation leaders for generations,” Spock has been one of the most revered and influential voices in Federation history. Now, available for the first time ever: his life, in his own words.

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Bruce and Dan sit down with the “editor” of The Autobiography of Mr. Spock, Una McCormack! We talk about the concept of a “wisdom book,” Spock’s struggles while growing up, his childhood with his brother and sister, his time on the Enterprise, his role as both a successful and unsuccessful mentor, his 24th century exploits, his relationship with James T. Kirk, and wrap up with our final thoughts and where Una can be found online and what projects she is currently working on.

STARFLEET’S FINEST FACES A CHALLENGE UNLIKE ANY OTHER

TOMORROW IS DOOMED
Time is coming apart. Countless alternate and parallel realities are under attack, weakening and collapsing from relentless onslaught. If left unchecked, the universe faces an unstoppable descent toward entropy.

WANDERER, ORACLE, ALLY
Scarred and broken after decades spent tracking this escalating temporal disaster, while battling the nameless enemy responsible for it, an old friend seeks assistance from Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise. The apocalypse may originate from their future, but might the cause lie in their past?

EVERYTHING THAT WILL BE
Identifying their adversary is but the first step toward defeating them, but early triumphs come with dreadful costs. What will the price be to achieve final victory, and how will that success be measured in futures as yet undefined?
