Positively Trek 217: Book Club: Second Self

With Special Guest Author Una McCormack & Guest Host Jessie Earl!


Jean-Luc Picard enlists the aid of Raffi Musiker in a dangerous mission to apprehend a wanted Cardassian war criminal. To undertake this mission, Raffi will have to face the ghosts of her past and come face-to-face with some of her darkest memories. Accompanying her is the earnest Qowat Milat warrior Elnor, who is sure to complicate matters.


In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan Gunther and Jessie Earl are joined by Una McCormack to discuss her new Star Trek: Picard novel, Second Self. We discuss the novel in a spoiler-free manner for the first part before we dig deep into the story for the second part of the show. Heads up: fans of Deep Space Nine will not want to miss this book!
