109: Andorian High School Musical

Andor: Paradigm.

The Andorians have always been one of Star Trek's best looking races, yet even by the time the DS9 relaunch started, they had been little more than window dressing. The relaunch team set out to change that by bringing on a new character to the station, allowing the authors to create a vivid culture for the Andorians. It is no surprise that when the Worlds of DS9 series started that Andor was one of the planets visited. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther wrap up the first book in the Worlds of DS9 series with Andor: Paradigm. We discuss the differences Enterprise created, the Andorian culture, alien races being alien, science and biology, Prynn and Shar, the Prynn problem, where things end and our ratings.

In the news segment we talk about Dayton Ward's newest book In History's Shadow II: Temporal Boogaloo and the possibilities for cover art as well as look at Christopher Jones' new monthly column on StarTrek.com

108: Star Trek Beyond the Thunderdome

Cardassia: The Lotus Flower. 

The Dominion War left Cardassia ravaged. The planet is on the edge of a knife, as it's people scrounge for food, power and answers, trying to rebuild a once proud civilization. The question becomes, do they look to the past for answers or forge something new?

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Una McCormack's book Cardassia: The Lotus Flower which kicks off the Worlds of DS9 series. We discuss a broken world, faith and belief, rehabilitating a vedek, being out of Mile's shadow, science's purity and give our ratings.

107: Death Star DeLorean

Armageddon's Arrow. 

It has been a long road of recovery for the Federation since the events of Destiny. Captain Picard once asked during a previous war, "Does anyone remember when we use to be explorers?". Now the time has come for the Enterprise to once again boldly go and author Dayton Ward has given us a front row seat in Armageddon's Arrow. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Dayton Ward to talk about this latest adventure for the TNG crew. We discuss changing course in the 24th century, the new crew with the old, Picard's changes, creating races and technology, being careful what you wish for, literary on ramp, balancing resources, how things circle back, section 1701, what Taurik saw, the ending, trying to surprise readers and upcoming things from Dayton. 

In the news section we find out exactly what Dan was doing for Section 31 in Iceland and talk about the soon release of The Wit and Wisdom of Star Trek.

106: Completely Incomplete

Born With Teeth.

Kate Mulgrew burst on to the scene for Star Trek fans in the winter of 1995 and became the first female lead in the franchise, but Kate's life did not start there. She had a full life way before Trek came around. 

In this episode of Literary Treks host Matthew Rushing is joined by To The Journey's own Charlynn Schmiedt to talk about Kate Mulgrew's new memoir Born With Teeth. We discuss our expectations going in to the book, literally being born with teeth, Kate's eccentric upbringing, a haunting, the menagerie of men, the book end and how to rate a memoir.
