Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Sep 2, 2018

A Time to Love.

As Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise continue to deal with the fallout from their disastrous mission at the Rashanar battle site, a new crisis threatens to unravel the civilization on an alien colony. A murder has been committed in a society that has known nothing but peace for a century, and at the center of it all: Kyle Riker, Commander William Riker's father!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss A Time to Love, the fifth novel in the A Time To series and the first part of a duology by Robert Greenberger. We talk about the Enterprise's damaged reputation, Troi's efforts to deal with a despondent crew, Kyle Riker's role in a unfolding planetary crisis, a particularly bad case of gas, changes on the horizon for the command crew of the Enterprise, a strange b-plot that has Geordi trading with the Ferengi, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
