140: Landed in Yoda’s Swamp

Miasma.

The TOS movie era is a period of Star Trek history rife with story possibilities. Kirk’s crew aboard the Enterprise-A has been through a lot together, and that experience has molded them into some of Starfleet’s most valuable officers. Imagine if a television series had been set in this period. The episodes of that imaginary series might have been very much like the e-novella we are discussing this week.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the newest enovella Miasma. We talk about it feeling like an episode, the setting, growth for the characters, Spock and Saavik, logic vs. compassion and our ratings.

In the news we take a look at Ongoing #54.

139: Feels Like Star Trek VII

The Ashes of Eden.

In 1995, the first novel of what came to be known as the “Shatner-verse” hit bookshelves. This book spawned a series that would last for ten books and twelve years, featuring all-new adventures about James T. Kirk, penned by William Shatner himself. Journey with us back in time as we take a look at where it all began!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about William Shatner’s The Ashes of Eden. We discuss opinions on the Shatnerverse, getting older, when fantasies become reality, interesting villains, The Heart of Darkness and Insurrection, the crew reunited and our ratings.
