Publisher's description:

An all-new novel based on the landmark TV series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from the acclaimed author of A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe! 
Jadzia Dax has been a friend to Etom Prit, the Trill Trade Commissioner, over two lifetimes. When Etom visits Deep Space Nine with the request to rein in his wayward granddaughter Nemi, Dax can hardly say no. It seems like an easy assignment: visit a resort casino while on shore leave, and then bring her old friend Nemi home. But upon arrival, Dax finds Nemi has changed over the years in terrifying ways…and the pursuit of the truth will plunge Dax headlong into a century’s worth of secrets and lies!

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.
