77: Some Sort of Erotic Milliways

Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found).

Ladies and gentlemen, Vulcan Love Slave as we know it has now been in existence for three versions, and a fourth will be added just as soon as Quark can figured out to get his hands on it. Yes, when business at Quark's Bar, Grill, Gaming House and Holosuite Arcade began to dry up, a big move was needed to get things back on track. Something bold, something exciting, something… exclusive. The holosuite program Vulcan Love Slave has become a bit of a legend within Star Trek, but we've never learned much about it. It's just been mentioned in episodes like "The Ascent," "Doctor Bashir, I Presume," and "The Emperor's New Cloak." So what better topic for a fun adventure set aboard DS9—with a quick trip to Wrigley's Pleasure Planet?

In this episode of Literary Treks we're joined by the mastermind behind The Trek Collective, James Edwards, to discuss Terry J. Erdmann and Paula M. Block's new eNovella Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found). Few people know more about Deep Space Nine than Terry and Paula, and they deliver a delightful romp that slips in some meaningful messages about empowerment and equality.

James also joins us for our news segment as we take a look at IDW's Star Trek: New Adventures collection of the first twelve issues of Star Trek Ongoing, judge some apes by their covers, and find out how John Byrne plan to bring back Harry Mudd.

76: Praetor’s Gonna Be Your New Daddy!

Romulans: The Hollow Crown.

In Alien Spotlight: Romulans, John Byrne explored the aftermath of the events seen in the TOS episode "Balance of Terror." It was an interesting take, but it left us wanting more. Later that year (2008), Byrne expanded the tale with The Hollow Crown. This two-parter continues the story of the Klingon-Romulan alliance, which explains, among other things, why Klingon ship designs are used by Romulans later in The Original Series. But this isn't all that's covered and political intrigue runs rampant.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones discuss The Hollow Crown, how the Klingons take an uncharacteristic approach to achieve their goals, why it may be an insult on Romulus to be called a son of a friend, and why Byrne's story is amongst the best you'll find in Star Trek comics.

In our news segment we judge Greg Cox's Foul Deeds Will Rise by its cover, find out about a campaign to get the British Star Trek newspaper strips restored, field a listener question about the DS9 relaunch series and Unity, and help Chris recover from Slings and Arrows Amnesia.

75: So THAT'S Why Beverly Hates the EMH?

Slings and Arrows: That Sleep of Death.

In 2007 Pocket Books decided to honor the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation with a six-part eBook series that bridged the gap between the destruction of the Enterprise-D in Generations and the next time we saw the crew on the big screen in First Contact. Penned by J. Steven York, Christina F. York, Phaedra M. Weldon, William Leisner, Terri Osborne, Robert Greenberger, and Keith R.A. DeCandido, these novellas tell the story of the Enterprise-E’s shakedown cruise.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones discuss the fourth book in the Slings and Arrows series, That Sleep of Death, which delivers a pinch of First Contact setup with some generous helpings of A Christmas Carol. Join us as we discuss the first diplomatic mission of the new starship, why Beverly Crusher's primary role on the 1701-E is apparently theatre director, the idea of a mutualistic species that combines a humanoid and a coating of living creatures, and find out why Beverly is so rude to the EMH when she activates it in First Contact.
