87: Like The Godfather Part III

Mission Gamma: Cathedral.

Things on Deep Space Nine and in the Gamma Quadrant are heating up. Bajor looks to finally join the Federation while at the same time talks with Cardassia about formal relations have stalled. On the Defiant Bashir, Nog and Ezri all face issues that may radically alter their lives forever after an encounter with an alien object in space. 

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the pivotal third book in the Mission Gamma Series, Cathedral. We look at the pace of the series, the importance of pain, the role of faith, Kira's place in the Bajoran reformation and the character growth that has continued from Deep Space Nine through the novels.

In the news segment we talk about the first issue of Star Trek's crossover with The Planet of the Apes as well as get Dan's thoughts on John Byrne's New Vision series.
