This week, an invading force arrives with One Weird Trick for losing weight, but the Klingons are more concerned with the boogeyman that just jumped out of the closet. But if the Enterprise wants any data on the new arrivals, they may have to dig into their own lore first. What newspaper comics are still known in the 23rd century? How many middle initials does Kirk have floating around out there? And is Carey the right Diane for this job? All this and more in First Strike, the first book of the Invasion! saga, or as I like to call it, The Rath Cycle.
