In today’s episode, when the Enterprise is tapped to scare off Beta Quadrant baddies, the locals advise shooting first and asking questions never. But when Picard realizes that may well be the only way to neutralize an even bigger threat, he’ll need all of Data’s USB ports to get the job done. Can you change the difficulty setting of space? How do hiccups feel to a Trill? And how much setup is too much for one pun? All this and more in Intellivore, the book that demonstrates the value of (ab)using your noggin.
