125: The Prophets' Dynamic Duo

Warpath.

Deep Space Nine was the one Star Trek series that was not afraid to show the darker side of the universe, so it should come as no surprise to readers of the relaunch novels that the books continued that tradition as the story continued to unfold.

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about David Mack’s book Warpath. We discuss going from bad to worse, lack of direction, main characters that aren’t main, Prynn and Vaughn, setup syndrome, a trip to Bajoran Minis Tirith, person and our ratings.

In the news segment we judge the cover to James Swallow’s upcoming book The Latter Fire, talk about the latest issue of Star Trek/Green Lantern and Ongoing’s 50th issue.

124: Insert a Shudder Here

The Dominion: Olympus Descending.

As Deep Space Nine ended, The Dominion was left in disarray, they had lost the war and found themselves without clear direction. As Odo rejoins the Link he works to influence it, sharing his experiences among the solids with the changeling community, with the hope of fostering change, but something else has captivated the Link and it’s nothing Odo could have ever predicted.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the last Worlds of DS9 book Olympus Descending. We discuss Great Link confusion, Changeling culture, some long awaited resolution, a really hard time, what we place our faith in, massive disappointments and our ratings.

No news this week as Dan is in the infirmary.

We discuss where the idea came from for the book, the small clues, merging canon, Star Trek V, the people Kirk bumps into, more books, the artwork and footnotes, wrapping up with our final thoughts.
