79: Something Wicked This Way Comes
Kirsten Beyer: Acts of Contrition.

When we last left the Full Circle Fleet, Admiral Janeway had just assumed control. Her first order of business is to open diplomatic negotiations with The Confederacy of the Worlds of the First Quadrant, a potential ally for the Federation in the Delta Quadrant. At the same time, Seven is back on Earth to assist Starfleet Medical with the catomic plague while Tom Paris is engaged in the fight of his life as his mother questions his fitness to be a father.

In this episode of Literary Treks, author Kirsten Beyer joins hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones to discuss her latest book, Acts of Contrition, including the social issues represented in The Confederacy of the Worlds of the First Quadrant, the liberation of Tom Paris as a character, and Seven's continued journey to adulthood. Plus, Kirsten teases what is to come in the final installment, Atonement.

In our news segment, we learn that legendary author Harlan Ellison has suffered a stroke, find out a bit about Sacraments of Fire from David R. George III, and judge The Missing by its cover.

78: The Numbers On the Front Should Help

Kevin Dilmore and Dayton Ward: Seekers 2: Point of Divergence.

The writing trio of David Mack, Kevin Dilmore, and Dayton Ward brought us some of the most memorable 23rd-century adventures with their Vanguard series. While the story of Starbase 47 has concluded, the exploratory missions of the Endeavour and the Sagittarius continue on in the new series Star Trek: Seekers. Capturing the fun and wonder of The Original Series with a modern sensibility, Seekers returns readers to the strange new worlds that made Star Trek so popular from the start.

In this episode of Literary Treks we're joined by Kevin and Dayton, the duo behind the second book, to learn more about the Endeavour and how its crew and role differ from what we saw in Vanguard. We also learn how the two writers met and began working together, why Kang is their choice of Klingon, the future role of the Shedai metagenome and other Vanguard elements in Seekers, and much more.

In our news segment we find out how John Byrne may be bringing back Gary Seven, judge volume three of the Gold Key Archives by its cover, and review part three of The Q Gambit.
