Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans are going to be excited about this latest piece of news.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is known for quite a number of things, like its epic storylines, the depiction of war and its realities, friendships that span the galaxy, and of course Quark. Just, all the Quark. One of the things it isn’t as known for, but should be, is its books.
While the franchise has a laundry list of books, mostly non-canon, they’re usually all well received, and usually have a strong fanbase of their own, independent of the show. Deep Space Nine is no different from its sibling shows in this regard.
Yet, one of the best books in the franchise library, “A Stitch in Time” remains a standout for the franchise. It’s also one of the most popular books that Trek has ever seen made that doesn’t have an audiobook version.
That’s about to change, however.
Star Trek made by Star Trek, what a novel idea…
“A Stitch in Time” will come to an audiobook form in the not too distant future, according to Sid City, the Alexander Siddig fansite. Siddig of course Julian Bashir on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Ironically enough, Siddig’s on-screen friend, Elim Garak, is the star of the book.
A Garak-led book? What, did the man who played Garak on Deep Space Nine, Andrew J. Robinson write this book? Why, yes he did, actually.
The book follows Garak as he tries to put his planet Cardassia back together following the events of the Dominion War. The Dominion War, which took place during the Deep Space Nine’s last few seasons, saw Cardassia descend into chaos and eventually a civil war due to their affiliation with the Dominion.
The book follows Garek as he helps re-establish a new government and find love along the way.
The audio version will not only feature Garek but according to Sid City, will feature the man who brought Garek to life, Robinson, doing the narration. The audiobook however has not officially been announced by Simon and Schuester who, according to Daily Star Trek, revealed there is “no news” to share on the title.
Though, they didn’t say the audiobook wasn’t being created. So take it for what it’s worth.
