Just three weeks ago, Gene DeWeese laid this site’s first ever goose egg, and already he’s back in the saddle to bring us The Final Nexus, the sequel to his first Trek outing, Chain of Attack. There’s nowhere to go but up—or in this case, through, as the gate that sent the Enterprise billions of parsecs off course starts leaking space diarrhea that causes people to do some frightened pants-soiling of their own. What would the Enterprise do without Spock? Who’s that foxy silver mama on the cover? It’s the book that teaches us why the human touch is so important.
