150: Come to Janeway Moment

The Last Will Be First: Tristan Riddell.

On November 17th, 2012 a new show was added to the Trek.fm network that was dedicated to the books and comics of Star Trek and that would also allow the authors a place to come and talk about their work, giving fans behind-the-scenes access to the stories. With Strange New Worlds winner and Star Trek author Dayton Ward as the first show guest, Literary Treks boldly went.

In this very special episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Bruce Gibson and Strange New Worlds contestant Tristan Riddell to talk about his DS9 story The Last Will Be First. Then as a special treat and for the first time ever, we present the audiobook version of his story to the world.

149: Dayton’s Prime Directive

Elusive Salvation: Dayton Ward.

In 2013, the novel From History’s Shadow was released, in which author Dayton Ward linked together all of the disparate 20th century Star Trek time travel events in a fun and unique story. It was very well-received, and many readers asked one question over and over: when do we get a follow-up? Well, three years later, Dayton has delivered!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author Dayton Ward to talk about his latest book Elusive Salvation. We discuss the title, continuing in history’s shadow, new aliens, where to go, the timey-whimy, Roberta Lincoln, cheekiness, SPOILERS, the importance of hope, a pop question, what’s next for Dayton and where to find him online.

For the news segment we talk though third issues of Manifest Destiny and Legacy of Spock as well as take a look at the cover for Best Defense and discuss the blurb.

148: Ultimate Evil Universe

Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 1.

Superheroes in Star Trek? Star Trek has attempted a number of ambitious crossovers in the comic world in recent years. The universes of Doctor Who, Planet of the Apes, and Green Lantern have all been visited by our intrepid Starfleet heroes. These are always a fun diversion from the main storylines of the comics, giving a whole new meaning to exploring “strange new worlds.”

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Legion hero Bruce Gibson to talk about Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 1. We discuss our familiarity with the Legion of Superheroes, bridging the universes, immortal issues, trapped in a purple orb, characterization, art and our ratings.

In the news segment we look inside the new travel guide to Vulcan and discuss the latest issues of New Visions and Manifest Destiny.

147: The Phantom Menace

Kobayashi Maru.

One of the things that disappointed fans the most when Enterprise was canceled was the loss of seeing the Romulan War play out, so as the relaunch hit it’s stride it continued the series’ build into that storyline.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Bruce Gibson are joined by Section 31 agent Brandon-Shea Mutala to talk about Star Trek Enterprise: Kobayashi Maru. We discuss Archer coming into his own, wrong things for the wrong reasons, a shadowy man, a shadowy problem, overly long and not a lot of plot points, the Kobayashi Maru, historical connections and our ratings.

In the news segment we look at the upcoming release of The Star Trek Book as well as something for free.
