edited by Randall Landers

ERIDANI is a Star Trek: The Next Generation fanzine which tries to capture the very essence of the new television series. There may be occasional violence, adult situations, nudity and rough language, but those instances are noted in the descriptions, and no age statement is required for this publication.

ERIDANI 7 features

"Birds of a Feather" -- by Marianne Morici. This is a humorous look at a situation suggested by a line from the episode "AngelOne." It's set back when Riker and Geordi were serving aboard the U.S.S. Victory, and details the trouble one Federation agent can cause (and you thought Kllngon agents were a problem!).

"The Voice" -- by Lori Scott. This story delves into the psyche of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the man, the friend, who meant so much to him.

"Time for Beverly" -- by Marnita Howald. A story set shortly after Doctor Beverly Crusher's return to the Enterprise, and it details the developing relationship between Captain Jean-Luc Picard and herself.

"Nuisance" -- by Janna Stockinger. A Picard-Data story which is set very shortly after "The Measure of a Man." The presence of a guest in the captain's quarters provokes a metaphysical discussion.

"Cartesian Dilemma" -- by Cyndi Bayless Overstreet. An examination of the relationship between Doctor Kate Pulaski and Data, and it reveals to us the reason why Pulaski chose to leave the Enterprise.

"On the Carpet" -- by Chris Dickenson who took a running joke as a commandment. I've been promising a Wesley-gets-chewed-about-the-Nanites story since my review of "Evolution." Well, I'd intended that to be a joke, one akin to one running in ORION (we've been promising a Scotty-as-an-alcoholic story for that zine since 1981). Guess what? The joke's on me, since Chris wrote the Wesley-gets-chewed-out story for us, except that the joke's on me again. Read it, and see if you think Chris has had the last a teacher, I certainly think she has.

"Physician's Touch" -- by Cyndi Bayless Overstreet. This short story relates a special encounter between Data and Beverly Crusher as he shuttles her back to the Enterprise.
