Positively Trek 198: Book Club: Star Trek Explorer #2 Short Stories

Featuring Short Stories by Greg Cox, Christopher Cooper, Lisa Klink, and Chris Dows


We once again flip open the pages of Star Trek Explorer in search of brand-new exclusive short fiction set in the Star Trek universe! In this, the second issue of the official Star Trek magazine, the topic that connects all four stories is one that sends chills down the spine of even the most battle-hardened Starfleet veteran: The Borg.


In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan and Bruce take a look at the four short stories in issue #2 of Star Trek Explorer (including the subscriber-exclusive digital supplement): “Seven > Seven” by Greg Cox, “Quality of Life” by Christopher Cooper, “Retribution” by Lisa Klink, and “Broken Oaths” by Chris Dows.
