INVOLUTION 5 features

"Fun with Will and Jean," by Betty Dam and Brenda Shaffer, takes us along on shore leave with our top two Enterprise men, each agreeing to one day of activities of the other's choosing and their resolution to enjoy themselves--even if it kills them.

"Sleep, Perchance to Dream," by Judith Allison, is Riker's first person account of his vigil at Picard's bedside immediately following Picard's release from the Borg.

"Ahzdar," written and illustrated by Janet D'Airo, follows our captain to the planet "Ahzdar," on what is supposed to be a week-long convention of endless lectures and boring speeches. Picard should be so lucky. Although he does meet up with an old flame, his reunion is short-lived as he finds himself drugged, tortured, and kidnapped.

"Driving with Dad," written by Judith Allison. Ever had a driving lesson with your dad? What if you were twelve years old and your father was Captain Jean-Luc Picard--teaching you to pilot a shuttlecraft?

"Spru Season," by Elizabeth KnaueI, depicts Picard's attempts at avoiding a dreaded meeting with a visiting admiral, much to the crew's amusement--and dismay.

"Facades and Other Mysteries," Judith Allison's third story, is a humorous look at Jean-Luc Picard's decision to spend Valentine's Day with the lady of his choice, Beverly Crusher.

"Truths and Consequences," by Becky Woods, begins with the captain's return from the hands of the Cardassians and covers the weeks following, as Picard accepts Beverly Crusher's offer of companionship--and more.

In Mindi French's "Resolution," we find the good captain again seeking his favorite doctor's help and friendship after he parts with the metamorph, Kamala. The doctor, as always, is up to the challenge.

"The Personality of Command," by Melissa Davis, explores the irmer psyche of Captain Jean-Luc Picard during a typical day on the Enterprise. A fascinating look into the mind of a complex man.

"Beyond Suspicions," by D.J. Nicholson, shows us what might have occurred after the episode, "Suspicions." After Beverly Crusher's return to the Enterprise, she must face Jean-Luc Picard--and Jean-Luc Picard must face a board of inquiry for Crusher's unauthorized autopsy of the Ferengi scientist.
