The Farther Shore.

A Borg virus slowly spreads all around the Earth. A full-scale holographic rebellion is bringing the service industry to its knees. And in the middle of it all: Admiral Kathryn Janeway and the former crew of the U.S.S. Voyager. With Seven of Nine, Icheb, and The Doctor incarcerated by Starfleet, it's up to their former shipmates to set them free and get to the bottom of the mystery facing them before the entire planet is assimilated!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are once again joined by Warp 5's Brandi Jackola to discuss The Farther Shore by Christie Golden, book two of the Homecoming duology. We talk about B'Elanna's quest to find her mother, the ultimate badmiral Brenna Covington, Oliver Baines and his holographic revolution, Data's role in the story, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings for the novel.

At the top of the show, Dan and Bruce review the latest comic from IDW: the second issue of the TNG: Terra Incognita miniseries!

Homecoming.

In May of 2001, the Starship Voyager took her final on-screen voyage as Captain Janeway ordered her crew to "set a course... for home." Voyager had finally made it back to Earth after seven seasons in the Delta Quadrant, cut off from the Federation and their families. However, many viewers felt that the ending to Voyager was too abrupt. What about family reunions? What would happen to the Maquis crewmembers? And how would Voyager and her crew fit in to a Starfleet they had been separated from for so many years?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined by Warp Five's Brandi Jackola to talk about the Voyager relaunch novel Homecoming by Christie Golden. We discuss a troubling account of abuse, fixing "Endgame," wrapping things up too quickly, a holographic uprising, the return of the Borg, and finish by sharing our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news this week, Bruce and Dan discuss the implications of the newly-announced Jean-Luc Picard television series on the lit-verse, the return of the Star Trek: Waypoint comic from IDW this November, and review the final issue of the Star Trek: Discovery: Succession miniseries.

A Time to Harvest.

The situation in the Dokallan system is deteriorating rapidly. As Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise attempt to normalize relations with the Dokallans, sinister forces are working behind the scenes to undermine their efforts and subvert the Dokallans' terraforming operations to their own purposes. It will take all of the effort of Picard and his crew to turn the tables on their mysterious enemy, who have the power to hide in plain sight!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about A Time to Harvest by Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, the fourth novel in the A Time To series. We discuss the situation so far, an ill-advised plan to help the Dokallans, the familiar enemy the crew faces, Starfleet and Federation principles, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news section, we have some long-awaited and extremely exciting news from Star Trek Las Vegas about upcoming Star Trek novels from Simon & Schuster!
