Book: A Stitch in Time

Spy, tailor, gardener. At last, Elim Garak is home, and free. His parents are dead and his world and home lie in ruins. What's a lizard to do? "A Stitch in Time" is unique in Trek fiction in that it is a first-person semi-epistolary novel ostensibly written by the Cardassian spy, tailor, and gardener Elim Garak to his friend and conversational partner Julian Bashir from within the ruins and reconstruction of a defeated Cardassia in the wake of the Dominion War, after the end of the series' run. The book's author is the actor who portrayed Garak, Andew J. Robinson. [more inside]

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: When It Rains...  Rewatch   Season 7, Ep 21

...it pours... plot twists. The Klingons hold the key to victory over the Dominion, and a canny and judicious leader could use that to hold them at bay until the entire Alliance was ready to join them; unfortunately, the Empire has Gowron. Kira changes her clothes and Garak makes a call. Dukat finds out that when the Pah-wraiths say "for the Kai's eyes only", they mean it. And the only cure for someone's fever (not the sexy kind) isn't more cowbell, and Bashir and O'Brien have to go to the last people (ostensibly) on their side who they want to see to get it. (Series Finale - Part 5 of 9) [more inside]

OK, you know how, when you think you've found the right person, you just can't get enough of them? And you totally lose track of time in their arms? And all your friends are like, hey, where have you been, and you try to tell them that this is the one, man, and they just don't get it? And then you realize that one of them is going to get executed because you didn't do your part to resist the invading aliens? OK, maybe not so much the last part, but that's Odo's deal. Also, Sisko & Co. prepare to retake the station. [more inside]
