97: TOS' "Family" Episode

Shadow of the Machine.

In the aftermath of The Motion Picture the TOS characters were seen supposedly going back to the final frontier but what if they went back to Earth first for repairs and shore leave first? 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss Shadows of the Machine, the latest enovella by Scott Harrison. We talk about the how heroes are real people, some of the continuity issues with other novels, dive into the stories of Kirk, Sulu and Spock, and give our ratings.

In the news segment we judge the covers for the New Frontier novellas, talk about blurbs for the upcoming Titan, Seekers, TOS, and DS9 books, discuss the news of a 50th anniversary trilogy, finishing up by reviewing the new issues of the Trek/Apes crossover and Ongoing #43.

We discuss the genesis of the book, building from what is seen in the show, good and evil, historical characters, expanding on the Vulcans, writing the ensemble, why Tony chose certain figures from history, creating races for the book, his upcoming projects and lastly where to find Tony online.

95: The Sith Lords of Star Trek

Mission Gamma: Lesser Evil.

Season 8 of the DS9 relaunch is quickly coming to a close as Mission Gamma comes to an end. On their way home, Elias Vaughn and the crew of the USS Defiant make a shocking discovery. Meanwhile, Kira Nerys pursues Shakaar Edon's supposed assassin to Trill, while Ro Laren, Admiral Akaar and General Lenaris investigate why Hiziki Gard assassinated the Bajoran leader.

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther dive into Lesser Evil, the last book in the Mission Gamma series. We discuss our initial thoughts, how DS9 makes things their own, the hardest part of the book to read, the fast-paced plot and our ratings.

In the news segment we pay our respects to Leonard Nimoy by talking about some of the best Spock books, then move to recent comic issues of the Apes/Trek crossover, Ongoing #42 and New Visions #5.

94: I'm Getting Too Old For This Bleep

Keith DeCandido: Slings and Arrows: Enterprises of Great Pitch and Moment.

From the moment First Contact hit the screens and Geordi mentioned the Enterprise-E had been in space for a year, fans wondered what transpired that year. With huge events on DS9, fans knew the crew of the Enterprise had to be involved somehow. Luckily Treklit came to the rescue with the Sings and Arrows series. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunter are joined by author Keith DeCandido to talk about the last book in Slings and Arrows, Enterprises of Great Pitch and Movement as well as the series. We discuss the conclusion, the genesis of the series, choosing the writers, Keith's installment, Sisko and Picard, tying it all together, favorite moments, Keith's future in Treklit, his work outside Star Trek and where to find him online.

In the news we talk about a new book and cover to judge, The Wit and Wisdom of Star Trek and one more thing from Dayton Ward.
