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 23 features"Unto the Breach" -- by R. Scott Spradlin. An action-adventure techno-drama. An away team's capture leaves Worf in command of the Enterprise during the crisis.
"The Road Back" -- by D.J. Nicholson. A look at Picard's long road to recovery following become a Borg. He and Riker are having a difficult time relating to one another. Fortunately, Beverly Crusher and Deanna Troi are there to smooth out the rough edges and the pain.
"Marooned" -- by Marge Robles. A Picard/Crusher hurt-comfort story involving a shuttle crash.
"Debris" -- by Joan Winston. An alternate universe story wherein Picard/Locutus was killed, and William T. Riker is a galactic hero ... one terribly unhappy and extremely depressed galactic hero.
"The Sound of Distant Thunder" -- by Jo-Ann Lassiter. Set after "Parallels," this story makes for an interesting couplet with Joanie's story.
"PsyQLogy" -- by Susan Bredon-Smith. One of the few Q stories we've ever published, and set shortly after the events of "Best of Both Worlds" (isn't it remarkable how often story ideas have been generated by that episode?). Q has come aboard the Enterprise to torment the recovering Jean-Luc Picard. Fortunately, Picard has a powerful ally.
"The Gate to Paradise" -- by Rosemary Cullen. The Enterprise crew deals with a rather large family with a unique cause.
"Catalyst" -- by Joan M. Gleckler. An entertaining adventure as the Enterprise crew find themselves involved a colonial rescue operation.
