Captain Picard relieved of command and under psychiatric care. The Enterprise in mortal danger. A "Traveler," scared to use his power, but knowing that he must in order to save his friends from another life. And a strange, other-worldly threat prowls the site of the deadliest battle of the Dominion War, with seemingly nothing able to stop it. Can Wesley Crusher once again do what he does best: save the U.S.S. Enterprise and everyone aboard her?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss A Time to Die, part two of a duology by John Vornholt and the second novel in the nine-part A Time To series. We talk about Wesley's abilities as a Traveler, the character of Colleen Cabot and her relationship with Wesley, Picard's role in the story, the "Demon Flyer" that threatens our heroes, the Ontailians, answer some questions from our listeners, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
