Treks Not Taken

(1996)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Parody: The Final Frontier

Now you can cruise the most hilarious sector of the space-time continuum, with this collection of twenty Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes not by the leading lights of the Western literary tradition: James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Jackie Collins...

Steven Boyett transports you into the sort of alternative universes and avid reader or Trekker would love:

a Clancy-like realm where the Enterprise crew mobilizes to fix Captain Picard& 39;s broken watch

a Heller-esque domain where you can only get out of Starfleet if you& 39;re crazy--and, if you want to get out of Starfleet, you& 39;re clearly not crazy

a Collins-ish netherworld where Counselor Demanda Troi sleeps and shops her way around the galaxy

a Melvillean place where Moby Trek lies in wait

...and many more.

Boldly go where no one has gone before with this stellar combination of high art and high comedy.
