Publisher's description:

With the murderer still on the loose, the inhabitants of Deep Space Nine are starting to divide into factions, made even worse when the Ferengi government gets involved. To make matters worse, conflict between Constable Odo and the Federation’s handpicked criminal investigator threatens to derail the investigation itself! The DS9 murder mystery continues in this new space noir from David and Scott Tipton (STAR TREK: MIRROR BROKEN, STAR TREK: THE Q CONFLICT) and Greg Scott (GOTHAM CENTRAL, THE X-FILES)!

Final thoughts:

While the story feels like it is lacking forward momentum at times, the plot is fascinating enough to hold my interest to see where this is all heading. Looking forward to getting some answers as to the connections between some of the events of this story in issues three and four!

Very few adversaries are capable of bringing the great Captain Jean-Luc Picard to his knees, and now two of them are coming together to make his life miserable. Lwaxana Troi, ambassador from Betazed and mother of Counselor Deanna Troi, has become enamoured with the extradimensional entity known only as “Q,” and life aboard the Enterprise may never be the same again.

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss the classic TNG novel Q-in-Law by veteran Trek author Peter David. We talk about Lwaxana Troi, the historic meeting between her and Q, Lwaxana’s relationship with her daughter Deanna, a sub-plot involving Wesley Crusher, lessons in love for Q, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
