The Siege.

In 1993, a new Star Trek series hit the airwaves: Deep Space Nine, a darker, grittier Trek set aboard space station. Like every new Star Trek series, a line of original novels was produced by Pocket Books, and the first book in that series would be penned by none other than Trek literary legend, Peter David.

In this episode of Literary Treks, Dan Gunther, Bruce Gibson, and special guest Brandon Shea-Mutala discuss the first original Deep Space Nine novel, The Siege. We talk about the links to season one of DS9, how well Peter David captures the voices of the characters, the violence of the story, a possible Babylon 5 connection, Bashir's actions, and the story's villain.

In the news segment, we share our thoughts on the new comics Boldly Go issue 5, and Stranger Worlds issue 3.

180: Seeing Geordis in My Sleep

Headlong Flight: Dayton Ward.

A long term mission of exploration far beyond the boundaries of the Federation has yielded many surprising discoveries, but none more surprising than the crew of the Enterprise-E crossing not only temporal boundaries, but dimensional ones as well. In the latest TNG novel, generations and realities collide as the crew of the Enterprise-E meets the crew of an alternate timeline's Enterprise-D!

In this episode of Literary Treks, Dan Gunther, Bruce Gibson, and Matthew Rushing are joined by renowned Trek author Dayton Ward about his latest book in The Next Generation, Headlong Flight. We ask him about alternate versions of our heroes, T'Ryssa Chen, the Romulan angle, the temporal prime directive, homages and references, and what's coming next from Dayton.

For the news we review the latest New Visions issues, #14.

179: Space Cats

Star Trek IDW Comics: Sarah Gaydos & Mike Johnson.

As fans, we get our Star Trek fix in many different forms: television, film, novels, and comics. And no comic publisher has been quite so prolific as IDW when it comes to publishing Star Trek stories! Waypoint, Ongoing, Boldly Go, New Visions, and Stranger Worlds are just a few of the titles that IDW publishes on a regular basis.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson welcome Sarah Gaydos and Mike Johnson from IDW to the show! We ask them about their personal Star Trek stories, the Boldly Go series, Crossovers, Waypoint, new series coming up, and then ask some questions submitted by our listeners on the Babel Conference.

In the news segment we discuss how the delay of Star Trek: Discovery will affect the book and comic release schedule and share our thoughts on the newest issue of the Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover comic.
