In 2004, Pocket Books undertook an ambitious project: a nine-book series that bridged the gap between the films Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek: Nemesis. Dubbed the "A Time To..." series, the nine novels have titles that will be familiar to readers of the Ecclesiastes book of the Old Testament, or those who know the pop hit by The Byrds, "Turn! Turn! Turn!" Good luck getting that one out of your head!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the first book in the series, A Time to Be Born. We discuss Wesley Crusher's surprise return, the dangers of the Rashanar battle site, the damage to Picard's reputation, Data's role in the story, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we review the first issue of the new Star Trek: Discovery: Succession miniseries.
