Gathers parodies of the television series written in the style of Salinger, Conrad, Rand, Joyce, Hemingway, Melville, and Dr. Seuss

Parody: The Final Frontier

Now you can cruise the most hilarious sector of the space-time continuum, with this collection of twenty Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes not by the leading lights of the Western literary tradition: James Joyce, Ernest Hemingway, Jackie Collins...

Steven Boyett transports you into the sort of alternative universes and avid reader or Trekker would love:

  • a Clancy-like realm where the Enterprise crew mobilizes to fix Captain Picard's broken watch

  • a Heller-esque domain where you can only get out of Starfleet if you're crazy--and, if you want to get out of Starfleet, you're clearly not crazy

  • a Collins-ish netherworld where Counselor Demanda Troi sleeps and shops her way around the galaxy

  • a Melvillean place where Moby Trek lies in wait

...and many more.

Boldly go where no one has gone before with this stellar combination of high art and high comedy.
