As the Enterprise holds her own against a swarm of energy creatures determined to keep the crew from completing their mission, Q leads Picard on a journey through his past, where a force even greater than Q and with an even wider cruel streak wreaks havoc on the galaxy.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined once again by Earl Grey's Amy Nelson to discuss the second book of the Q Continuum series, Q-Zone. We talk about stardate snafus, peer pressure, bad parenting, 0's gang of evil-doers, the end of the TKon Empire, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we discuss the upcoming e-book release, I, The Constable by Paula Block and Terry Erdmann, a new activity book called Search for Spock by Robb Pearlman, a resolution to the issue with Discovery novel pre-orders at Amazon UK, and we talk about the IDW comic releases for October, including some news about the Star Trek: Discovery comics.
