A Time to Kill.

An explosive situation is brewing on the planet Tezwa. An unhinged leader in control of devastating weapons which were covertly provided by the Federation wants to seize a nearby Klingon planet, throwing the sector into chaos. The origin of the weapons on Tezwa, if revealed, may spark war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. It falls to Picard and the crew of the Enterprise to destroy these weapons before they ignite an interstellar conflict that would rival even the height of the Dominion War!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss A Time to Kill, the seventh novel in the A Time To series and the first full-length Trek novel by author David Mack. We talk about the fast-paced nature of the novel, conspiracies in the Tezwan and Federation governments, the special ops mission to destroy the weapons, Ambassador Worf's role in the story, a cliffhanger ending, a tragic tale of an android and his emotions, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we report on a new addition to the 2019 release schedule: The Original Series: The Captain's Oath by Christopher L. Bennett, as well as review issue number four in the TNG: Terra Incognita series from IDW.
